Linda Capello is a master of figure drawing. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, she worked in the NYC fashion industry for over 20 years. She is listed in Who’s Who of American Women, and received the Miriam Russo Enders Award: For Works on Paper, from the National Association of Woman Artists (May 2009), for her red conte drawing, So Inclined.
“All I have ever wanted to do was draw, and all I have ever wanted to draw were people. I am a classically trained anatomist, but instead of the rigid, mechanical representation of muscle, bone and flesh, I look for the subtlety of the line; the strength and sensuality of the thick, thin and lost line. The curve of the neck and arch of the spine speak volumes.”
She teaches extensively on the East End at Guild Hall, the Veterans Hall in Southampton, The Art Barge, Parrish Art Museum, the Southampton Cultural Center and is a member of Southampton Artists and the Artists Alliance of East Hampton.

Curated by Paton Miller, the now fifth year of this popular exhibition continues to celebrate 31 new artists including six teenagers and marks Southampton Arts Center as a home where the East End arts scene can continue to thrive. This exhibition has been made possible thanks, in part, to the generosity of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
Meet the artists of East End Collected5 and EEC Jr. as well as Curator Paton Miller at our popular Thursday night social club, “Hangout.” Come view the new exhibition, socialize with the artists and members of the community, have a glass of wine, listen to music, play ping-pong and just hang out!
