with Scott Bluedorn
Sunday, August 4 | 11:30 AM | Ages 16+ | $20 ($15 for Friends of SAC)
Join us for this special 90-minute sketching session in the Photo Ark galleries with East Hampton artist Scott Bluedorn, known for his elaborate marine life drawings.
All levels encouraged. Materials will be provided.
Scott Bluedorn was born in Southampton and lives and works in East Hampton, NY and is a 2009 BFA graduate of the BFA School of Visual Arts.
The artist, illustrator and designer works in various media, including painting, drawing, print process, and found object assemblage. Drawing inspiration from cultural anthropology, primitivism, and nautical tradition, Bluedorn distills imagery that speaks to the collective unconscious, especially through myth and visual story-telling – a world he conjures as “maritime cosmology”.
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.
