DISPATCH - AUG 31, 2013

AMAGANSETT, NY-

Neoteric Fine Art is known for its happenings that roll music, art by area artists, culture and even merchandising into a mosh pit of fun. Last weekend was no exception when the gallery held an Opening Reception for the group show “Re:Purposed” and a simultaneous Launch Party for MadeClose, a company that highlights locally produced foods and goods.

Tonight, the fun continues when Neoteric presents a benefit for the literary-art happening "The Moby Project" held this fall in the Hamptons. The benefit includes live music, beer, a BBQ and a silent auction. Admission is $20. On view is "Re:Purposed."

The show is a collection of art made from found and re-purposed materials. Artists presenting works are Rossa Cole, Billy Strong, Scott Szegeski, Ethan Abramson, Christine Lidrbauch, Peter Spacek, Jo Shane, Scott Bluedorn, Pierre Cote, and David Elze. "Re: Purposed" remains on view through Sept. 18.

Last Saturday's art bash included a Silent Disco with music piped into headphones by a deejay. Here's a look at the scene that unfolded. All photos are by Tom Kochie.
