Wednesdays, March 6, 13, 20, & 27 | 4-5:30 PM | $10 Per Session
Join TAKEOVER! artist Darlene Charneco for 4 weeks in March Memorymapping!
Space is limited. Advance reservations required. Children are encouraged to attend all 4 sessions, but are not required to do so. Drop-off permitted.
Inspired by her series The Self-Assembling MemoryPalace, Darlene will help guide participants in creating their own art collage ‘memorymaps’ of favorite and familiar spaces, past or present. The artworks become storyboards that we can navigate together and share memories and stories we have embedded inside! Drop into one session or come play at all 4 to create a foldable collection of personal maps. A variety of fun materials will be provided – just bring You!
GRADES 2-5 ONLY.
Darlene Charneco is a contemporary Latin-American artist whose own mixed-media mapping series looks at people, networks, homes, and communities as part of a larger organism’s growth stage. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States at venues including the Katonah Museum, the Hunterdon Museum, The Islip Art Museum, and the Parrish Art Museum and is featured in the book ‘The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography’ by Katherine Harmon. She was the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant in 2017 and her recent series ‘FutureNurture: Weaves and Touchmaps’ debuted at PRAXIS Gallery Chelsea in NYC this past fall. Charneco lives and works on the East End of Long Island.
It’s friends like you that have made the first five years of SAC so successful. Now, we are taking the opportunity to invite you to become our Friend – formally – as we launch Southampton Arts Center Friends Circle.
TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation.
