The International Center of Photography and Southampton Arts Center are thrilled to co-present the National Geographic Photo Ark exhibition this summer, featuring the compelling and visually stunning work of National Geographic photographer and Fellow Joel Sartore. The exhibition will highlight Sartore’s images from his work in more than 250 zoos, aquariums and animal rescue centers around the world.
This exhibition is made possible by the Harbers Family Foundation and Renee Harbers and Chris Liddell and is organized and traveled by the National Geographic Society.
Galleries will be open on Labor Day from 11 AM to 6 PM.

Michael Paraskevas has illustrated and written 24 children’s books over the years with his mother, Betty. The two created and wrote the animated television series Maggie and the Ferocious Beast for Nickelodeon that went on to win a Gemini Award for Best Animated Series. Two more of the team’s books were also made into animated series: Marvin the Tap-Dancing Horse for PBS and Kids from Room 402 for Fox Family. In addition, Mickey has worked for most major magazines including Sports Illustrated, Time, Town & Country, New York Magazine and Rolling Stone, to name but a few. Dan’s Papers has proudly used over 100 paintings of Michael’s covers over the past 30 years along with thousands of cartoons and comics.
Two simultaneous exhibitions focusing on the world of printmaking will feature giants in modern and contemporary art, along with talented artists from all over the world. Both exhibitions, the brainchildren of Sag Harbor artist and master printmaker Dan Welden, combine to create a milestone event that brings printmaking to the forefront of art.
Presented with Inspiration Plus and Dan Welden.

Art Heals – Be Creative!
The entry period for “SAC Community Art Share” has come to a close and we can how present the final “show” with 160 pieces!
Our galleries may be temporarily closed, but that won’t stop us from exhibiting artwork. During this time of social distancing we encouraged you to tap into your creativity – paint, draw, sculpt, photograph nature, make a video – whatever inspires and excites you! Then you shared the images of your work so we could post them online and on our social media platforms to make everyone’s worlds a little brighter!
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.
The Willem de Kooning Foundation, the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Teiger Foundation, and the Cy Twombly Foundation, as part of their respective COVID-19 relief efforts, have established an emergency relief grant program that will provide $1,250,000 in aid to Tri-State non-salaried workers in the visual arts who have experienced financial hardship from lack of income or opportunity as a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis. The program, initiated by The Willem de Kooning Foundation, will be administered in partnership with NYFA.
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.
We may be physically separated but SAC is still virtually vibrant and we want to stay connected with you socially. Follow @southamptonartscenter on Facebook and Instagram for daily posts to help inspire, motivate, and entertain.

The Hamptons Arts Network is working with the artist Philippe Cheng to take commissions of Pause At Home—family, individual, or essential worker portraits—as an important record of our community living through the COVID-19 pandemic. A portfolio of all commissioned portraits will become part of the collections of East Hampton Historical Society, Eastville Community Historical Society, and Southampton History Museum as a means to gather and preserve information for future researchers. The option to pay for a portrait of a health worker, essential worker, civil servant, or a gift for another person or family, is available. Proceeds, after production expenses, go directly to support the 19 members organizations of the Hamptons Arts Network, a consortium of not-for-profit organizations working together to create a unified arts community of the Hamptons.
