LOVING VINCENT is the 2017 biographical and animated painted drama about the life and death of Vincent van Gogh. Each of the film’s 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas created by a team of 115 painters who use the same technique as the famed artist. Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman.
“Hypnotic and beguiling…” A.O. Scott, The New York Times. LOVING VINCENT, the world’s first fully oil-painted feature film, brings the artwork of Vincent van Gogh to life in an exploration of the complicated life and controversial death of one of history’s most celebrated artists. More than six years in the making, with the help of 125 specially trained painters, LOVING VINCENT is a uniquely animated film composed of 65,000 painted frames. Drawn from meticulous research and inspired by van Gogh’s masterpieces, subjects, and 800 personal letters, the film captures the world of van Gogh in a cinematic experience like no other.
Nominated for a Golden Globe® Award for Best Animated Motion Picture!

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. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
