ASHAWAGH HALL BENEFIT FOR EAST HAMPTON FOOD PANTRY

UPDATE: NOV 2, 2012 - The show has been cancelled and postponed until 2013 due to Hurricane Sandy.

OCT 31, 2012 - EAST HAMPTON, NY

"Small Works / Big Views" will be held at Ashawagh Hall in Springs, NY from Saturday, Nov 3, 2012, through Sunday, Nov 4, 2012. An opening reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Art sales benefit the East Hampton Food Pantry.

 

Support of the Food Pantry from the community is needed as never before. Last year, around 37,000 people were fed by the East Hampton Food Pantry. This number may be a shock to most, even those who live in this unique and affluent community.

East Hampton Food Pantry operates almost solely on donations. They spend about $150,000 per year on food. They offer their clients fresh produce (both fruits and vegetables) and fresh dairy (milk, eggs, cheese and butter). The entire East Hampton Town community (from Wainscott to Montauk) is served.

The show will feature large paintings and smaller landscapes. Some are based in realism and some abstracted but all are inspired by the natural beauty of the East End.

“The art in the show is inspired by the beauty and verity of the coastal landscape in East Hampton,” said Susan D’Alessio. “The landscape that makes this a desirable place for second home owners and those of us who have plenty. We want to bring attention to those who may not have plenty and rely on the food pantry especially during the winter months."

This is the second exhibition the artists have sponsored to benefit the East Hampton Food Pantry. The first show was held two years ago in anticipation of the Thanksgiving season.
