Isadora Capraro was born in Italy in 1994 and immigrated to Buenos Aires shortly after. After attending the Manuel Belgrano National School of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, Isadora moved to the United States and has since worked for artists of note in Los Angeles, New York, Sagaponack, and Buenos Aires, while developing her own artwork. Isadora had her first solo show in 2018 and after that, she participated in several group shows in the United States. Her work is part of private collections in Buenos Aires, New York and Mexico. She now lives and works in Southampton and her paintings construct a universe in which the human figure tenderly merges with the subtle world of nature. Her work brings the viewer the possibility to attend that state of peace and stillness.

It’s friends like you that have made the first five years of SAC so successful. Now, we are taking the opportunity to invite you to become our Friend – formally – as we launch Southampton Arts Center Friends Circle.
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.
