East End Collected6

Conceived and Curated by Paton Miller

East End Collected6 continues to reflect Paton Miller’s vision of this area as an ideal environment for artists to create work as well as drawing attention to the large population of artists living on the East End. In this sixth iteration of the popular exhibition, Miller continues with the intention of never showing the same artist twice. The series will have featured over 200 individuals including this 6th collection. Through this exhibition, Paton Miller celebrates these 30 new artists and marks Southampton Arts Center as a home where the region’s arts scene can continue to thrive.
