DISPATCH - SEPT 13, 2013
A Red Dot Party to celebrate art with an Amagansett connection will be held on Saturday at the Jackson Carriage House in Amagansett. The Red Dot Party (and sale) takes place from 2 to 5 p.m. Underlying the event is an exhibition presenting artists with an Amagansett connection. Proceeds of the art exhibition celebration benefit the Amagansett Historical Association. Funds will help restore historic properties and to set up a photo archive.
"Amagansett Art: Across the Years" presents a snapshot of the artistic life of Amagansett, according to exhibition organizers. The show was curated by Nina Gillman, Elena Prohaska Glinn, Jeanie Stiles and Isabel Carmichael. Exhibiting artists have some type of connection to Amagansett, a hamlet that's recently come into its own as an art epicenter. This summer, there were no fewer than four art galleries presenting changing exhibitions within a three-block stretch.
The list of participating artists in "Amagansett Art: Across the Years" stretches to nearly 45 artists and photographers. Exhibiting artists include Richard Baxter, Nicole Bigar, Zoe Pennebaker Breen, Ralph Carpentier, Lucy Cookson, Susan D'Alessio, Kate Davis, Elliott Erwitt, Victoria Fensterer, Nina Gillman, Burt Glinn, Durell Godfrey, Sue Gussow, Hope Harris, Toby Haynes, Janet Jennings, Teri Kennedy and Doug Kuntz.
