Fresh Look 2018: A Celebration of Art and Artists

Fresh Look 2018: A Celebration of Art and Artists
Saturday, November 10, 6–8 pm

Join us at the Museum for a special evening on Saturday, November 10, from 6 to 8 pm, where you can mingle with artists in the galleries, enjoy signature cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres to the backdrop of music, and take a closer look at an array of works from the permanent collection.

At 5pm, ticket purchasers at the Supporter ($500+) level and above are invited for a champagne toast with special guest David Salle, who will say a few words about his monumental paintings inspired by the Sistine Chapel and commissioned for Museo Carlo Bilotti, Rome. These works have never been seen in the United States.

Providing a fresh look at works that illuminate the ongoing legacy of the East End, this year’s new installation, Every Picture Tells a Story, invites us to reconsider how art and artists respond to the world. In addition to Salle's paintings, the Museum will unveil several newly-acquired Photorealist paintings; a mini-survey of paintings and drawings by Louisa Chase; and a series of intimate and revelatory artists' portraits by the renowned photographer Fred W. McDarrah, accompanied by examples of those artists' works. Of note is a gallery filled with paintings and archival photographs exploring the special connections between William Merritt Chase and his Shinnecock neighbors. Fairfield Porter Raw: the Creative Process of an American Master features paintings and works on paper.
