TAKEOVER! GALLERIES ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED – CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES.
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. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
NOTE: In response to the NY State mandate our galleries will remain closed until further notice and all public programs are currently canceled. We will post updates online and on our social media platforms as they come.
To take a virtual tour of the exhibition TAKEOVER! 2020 Artists in Residence while the galleries are closed, visit Southampton Arts Center on YouTube.

Don’t Be Sad – Be Creative!
Our galleries may be temporarily closed, but that won’t stop us from exhibiting artwork!
During this time of social distancing we encourage you to tap into your creativity – paint, draw, sculpt, photograph nature, make a video – whatever inspires and excites you! Then share the images of your work so we can post them online and on our social media platforms to make everyone’s worlds a little brighter!
CREATE!, PHOTOGRAPH YOUR CREATION, EMAIL THE PHOTO (or Video) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, age (if done by a child), the name of the work, where you live, and if applicable, your Instagram handle. SPREAD THE WORD!
We want to be able to serve as a resource for all artists during these difficult times. For those of you working in visual, performing, literary, or any other arts-related field – whether as the maker, administrator, technician, or other role – there are options out there to help you.
Updates are happening on a regular basis and we will do our best to add more information as it becomes available.
When life is on pause, art can heal. We have no choice. Pause we must. So, together, let’s make this moment meaningful. Since our doors opened, Southampton Arts Center has been deeply committed to community building through the arts. We are humbled that in a few short years SAC has transformed into a vital gathering spot for all members of our community.
Acknowledging that all sectors of our economy are facing challenges, we are respectfully asking for your help as well. If you are in a position to support the critical on-going needs of Southampton Arts Center during this time and can make a tax-deductible contribution, we hope you will do so.
