Southampton Arts Center, located at 25 Jobs Lane in the heart of Southampton Village, is pleased to announce the return of East End Collected, now in its sixth iteration. Conceived and Curated by Artist Paton Miller, EEC6 will open on Saturday, January 30 and run through Sunday, April 11, 2021. Galleries will be open Friday to Sunday, 12-5 PM. Admission is Free, but a $5 donation is suggested and appreciated. East End Collected6 is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg and Will Marin.

East End Collected draws attention to the large population of artists living in the region and reflects Paton Miller’s vision of the East End as an ideal environment for artists to create work. In this sixth iteration of the popular exhibition, Miller continues with the intention of never showing the same artist twice. Since its 2015 launch, the EEC series has featured over 200 individuals. Through this exhibition, Southampton Arts Center celebrates 35 new artists and further establishes then as a home where the East End arts scene continues to thrive.

EEC6 Artists include Linda K. Alpern, Mary Boochever, Deborah Buck, Dominic Cantasano, Isadora Capraro, Philippe Cheng, Joe Chierchio, Jerry Cooke, James Croak, Noel de Lesseps, David Geiser*, Mary Delaney, John Dios, Melody Guini, Candace Hill, Dennis Lawrence, Christina Matthai, Gerald Monroe, Ryan Moore, Shimon Okshteyn*, Zach Osif, Patrick Peters, Leila Pinto, William Quigley, Doug Reina, Bastienne Schmidt, Christine Sciulli, Anne Seelbach, Agathe Snow, Kevin Teare, Catherine Van Milders, Maria Vasconcelos, Linh Vivace, Claire Watson, Carol Weinberg, Suzanne Wetanson, and John Whelan.

*EEC6 also pays tribute to two East End Collected alums lost in 2020, David Geiser (EEC1) and Shimon Okshteyn (EEC4).

 

Of the beloved series, Paton Miller says “In 2012 I was invited to a meeting in Southampton Village to discuss the possibility of creating an arts center at 25 Jobs Lane. I was asked my opinion and I said, to what would become the founding members of the Southampton Art Center, that if they were setting about opening an arts center, to survive they must be loved. To achieve that I said their focus should be on the incredible artistic depth and diversity of our immediate region. A few months later I was invited to curate the first East End Collected exhibition. Here we are these years later and under extreme circumstances with our sixth installment having exhibited more than 200 artists…

… I’d like to thank Amy Kirwin, Tom Dunn and the board of SAC for everything they have done to support me in exhibiting the artists of the East End Collected series. Curating these shows has been an honor and revelatory experience.”

Southampton Arts Center programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
