Guided Studio Tour

w/ Artist-in-Residence Peter Solow

Sunday, January 28th | 12:00 – 1:00pm

Free to Attend

Join us for a guided studio visit with artist-in-residence Peter Solow! Over the past month, Solow has made significant developments on an installation piece that incorporates traditional and digital practices to recreate the experience of standing in a city square. Derived from 35 years of visual notes, sketches, photographs, and paintings, this work draws inspiration from the Italian cities of Venice and Florence, examining how the campos and piazzas of both cities have organized themselves within the context of their natural environment.

Guided Studio Visit with Peter Solow 


Peter Solow

Peter Solow is a visual artist whose work is in the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of American Art-Smithsonian Institute, The Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, the Samuel P. Harn Museum and the Newark Museum. Mr. Solow attended Boston University, graduated from Cooper Union with a BFA and Goddard College with a Master’s in Education. He has had an extensive teaching career and is the former coordinator and a present trustee of The Donald Reutershan Education Trust. Mr. Solow lives in Sag Harbor.


The Church was established in 2019 by artists Eric Fischl and April Gornik. Housed in a deconsecrated 19th century church, its doors were opened in April 2021. Our mission is to foster creativity and to honor the living history of Sag Harbor as a maker village. The East End represents an exceptional artistic legacy, spanning the practices of indigenous art of several centuries ago, Abstract Expressionists of the mid 20th Century, and the many celebrated writers, makers, musicians, and visual artists of the recent past and current moment. Core programming includes visual art exhibitions, concerts and events, educational programming, workshops, lectures, and an artist’s residency.
