Purchase PAUSE AT HOME Portraits to Benefit Hamptons Arts Network

HAMPTONS ARTS NETWORK, WITH ARTIST PHILIPPE CHENG, OFFERS COMMISSIONED PORTRAITS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

The Hamptons Arts Network is working with the artist Philippe Cheng to take commissions of Pause At Home—family, individual, or essential worker portraits—as an important record of our community living through the COVID-19 pandemic. A portfolio of all commissioned portraits will become part of the collections of East Hampton Historical Society, Eastville Community Historical Society, and Southampton History Museum as a means to gather and preserve information for future researchers. The option to pay for a portrait of a health worker, essential worker, civil servant, or a gift for another person or family, is available. Proceeds, after production expenses, go directly to support the 19 members organizations of the Hamptons Arts Network, a consortium of not-for-profit organizations working together to create a unified arts community of the Hamptons.

Portraits may be commissioned at a price of $1,500 by visiting  give.guildhall.org/pauseportraits or emailing info@hamptonsartsnetwork.org. Each purchaser will receive an 11 x 14-inch archival collector’s print.

Philippe Cheng is a fine art-based photographer with studios in New York City and Bridgehampton, Long Island. Recognized for his work capturing diverse personalities, Cheng brings sensitivity to this project as a longtime community member and frequent volunteer. He studied at The School of Visual Arts and New York University, and his work is in the Library Collection of The Museum of Modern Art, the Parrish Art Museum, and in many private collections.

2020 VISION

Saturday Jul 25 - Sunday Dec 27

Presented by New York Academy of Art with Southampton Arts Center. Curated by David Kratz and Stephanie Roach, and edited by Emma Gilbey Keller. Artists and writers are always the antennae of our society, all the more so at a time as challenging as this one.  They have an opportunity—some might say, a duty—to interpret this moment and imagine the world not only as it is, but also as it could be. This is the guiding challenge of the group exhibition, 2020 Vision.  We asked artists, writers, and creative thinkers to consider three questions of critical importance: Our lives will never be the same, but what will change look like?  What do we want to keep as we rebuild? And what must we guard against? We invited these creators to express what they saw, what they felt, and what they experienced during this time of pause and reassessment, upheaval and risk, and anxiety and uncertainty.   It is our hope that 2020 Vision marks one of many beginnings in the necessary process of ‘post-traumatic growth’ and positive change for our society and our world.
