SAC Founding Co-Chair, Simone Levinson, told the crowded room, “Our mission has always been to build a community for the talented artists and art enthusiasts of New York’s East End. As I look around and see all of you here, it is a testament to what we do year-round. Thank you to our artists for inspiring us and to all of you for being part of our community. We’re very excited to have this exhibition as the perfect backdrop for our upcoming 2022 SummerFest! Before we’ve even sent out the invitations, we’ve raised over $500,000 and sold over 400 tickets! THAT is community.”

If you are interested in checking this exhibit for yourself, it is available until September 24, the multimedia exhibition displays works that use the figure as central imagery. Deborah Buck uses anthropomorphic and imaginary figures to create an other-worldly environment that beckons us to partake in a world beyond ours.

Hal Buckner utilizes the female figure to empower, celebrate, and alter the art historical canon. Strong-Cuevas focuses on the figure’s head as a representation of the whole, exploring inner consciousness, outer space and communication through space and time. The show is curated by Christina Mossaides Strassfield and sponsored by Sylvia Hemingway and Lana Jokel.

On September 1st  the Southampton Arts Center will have their SummerFest event  and at that time they will be honoring Helena and Rob Vahradian.
