Matthew Satz’s painting, Smoke Painting 4.21.15, 2015, captures an illusory moment in time, the moment between the physical and immaterial. Join us for the first Insight Sunday of our Spring exhibition, Space – Sight – Line, where Matthew will discuss his elegant painting, the shape of its meaning, and the process fueling his work.

Resourceful, Matthew often builds off of remnants and remainders of previous projects, thereby creating an inventive and organic body of work that functions much like an ongoing narrative. His presentation offers us a glimpse into that narrative, that mindset, and helps us discover why the East End and her “immense nature” serve as a paradoxical muse of inspiration.

Matthew’s work will be on view during our exhibition hours Wednesday – Sunday, 12 PM – 5 PM.



Matthew Satz was born in Brooklyn New York and is a contemporary artist based on Long Island’s East End recognized for his conceptually driven, process-oriented work. Satz earned a B.A. in Fine Arts from Brandeis University cum laude in 1993 and continues to explore and evolve his practice with acute attention to challenging the history of painting. Satz has lived, worked, and exhibited across the United States and abroad. Selected exhibitions include Harpers Books (East Hampton, NY), Guild Hall (East Hampton, NY), Wooster Projects (New York, NY), Flash Art Project Room at Scope New York (New York, NY), Parrish Art Museum (Southampton, NY), Islip Art Museum (Islip, NY), FEMACO – Feria Mexico Arte Contemporaneo (Mexico City, Mexico), Barbara Davis Gallery (Houston, TX), Barker Hanger (Santa Monica, CA), Florence Biennale 2007 (Florence, Italy), and Santa Monica Museum of Art (Santa Monica, CA).


(View the events calendar here) 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.
