After sharing “secrets” Southampton Arts Center will once again present the popular Raconteurs Storytelling Evening, this time with the theme of “Lies” in February, 2020. Each participant will tell a true story about a lie of their own or someone elses. These short and sweet tales are sure to make you laugh and cry.
If you are interested in being one of our storytellers, please email Amy Kirwin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stories must be told without notes, props, or projections, and should range from 5-7 minutes (or up to 9 minutes if they are extra juicy!).
Daniel finally returns to SAC after a series of virtual sound meditations. Join us for a soothing, deeply relaxing, and immersive Soundbath Meditation with Daniel's exquisite original set of crystal bowls, gongs, hang drum, Tibetan and Himalayan bells, rain sticks, ocarina, didj, and other objects d’sound. This one-of-a-kind experience will melt away stress and leave you calm, recharged, your mind clear and vibrant! Bring your own mats/blanets. Great for all skill levels.
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.
