Michael A. Butler is a native New Yorker and self-taught regional artist who focuses upon the hidden worlds of the historical and mythological. Many of his paintings reflects the unspoken history of this locality with specific reference to the African-American and Native-American influences. The deep jewel tones frequently represented in Butler’s work are reminiscent of those seen in the paintings of Henri Rousseau and the early works of Romare Bearden, two artists whom Butler admires. Another artistic influence is Aaron Douglass, whose geometric paintings provide inspiration. Butler has a Master’s degree in Public Administration and had his own gallery at one time. He is a former president of a local historical society. While also having exhibited in Massachusetts, Manhattan, Brooklyn, NY and Nassau County, he exhibits mainly on the East End of Long Island. Butler has had one-man shows at Gallery Merz, Headley Studio, Paradise Restaurant and the Eastville Community Historical Society, all located in Sag Harbor, NY.

TAKEOVER 2020! Artists in Residence

Saturday Feb 01 - Sunday Apr 12

TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! 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.
