Southampton Arts Center is thrilled to once again hand over the galleries to ten talented East End artists working in a variety of mediums. Each artist has been assigned their own space for a “pop-up” studio containing personal items that both comfort and inspire them to create. In addition to exhibiting completed pieces, the artists will be in residence in the galleries and their works-in-progress will be on view at all times. 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.

This artists playground offers the public a rarely seen peek into the creative process and offers visitors a sense of what it’s like to be invited into these sacred private spaces. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER 2020! artists will collaborate organically during the course of their residencies.

New this year, students from the Ross School and Southampton High School will be working alongside the professional artists to learn from their collective years of experience, and the interactive setting will help them build confidence and enhance their communication skills. Southampton High School students include Jen Muller, Cynthia Lin, Caraline Oakley, and Ava Cesario.

There will be workshops for all ages, intimate gallery tours, and unique programs inspired by the artists and their works in progress. Additionally, a weekly “hangout” will take place every Thursday from 6-8 PM where the community can come and spend the evening with the artists, play ping pong, have a drink, socialize, and watch the creative process at play.

GALLERY HOURS: Thursday-Sunday, 12-6 PM

ADMISSION: $5 Suggested Donation (Free for Friends of SAC and Children 12 & Under)

Weekly “In Studio” Schedule to be Announced.
