DISPATCH - JUNE 10, 2013 (8:45 a.m.)


The Hamptons creative community turned out on Saturday night for an intimate recital of minimalism music by Philip Glass and Jon Gibson and to support ILLE Arts's efforts to create a culture center at the Amagansett art gallery.

The concert featured solo performances by Glass and Gibson plus duo and ensemble performances. The benefit also included a silence auction of artworks by artists including Mary Heilmann, Elaine Grove, Don Christensen, Shelley Sonenberg, Sydney Albertini and others.

Here is what Philip Glass had to say about ILLE Arts's efforts, according to the gallery's Facebook page:

"Jon Gibson and I have been lifelong supporters of emerging artists having once been a pair ourselves. The ILLE Arts concert seems like an ideal opportunity for us to continue to express our support for the emerging artist community. "
