  • Art Exhibitions at The Southampton Arts Center

  • Southampton Arts Center, located at 25 Jobs Lane in the heart of Southampton Village, will host the long-anticipated opening of two simultaneous exhibitions focusing on printmaking: The Solar Impressions Juried Exhibition and International Masters / Collaborations in Printmaking. Presented by Southampton Arts Center and Inspiration Plus, a non profit organization dedicated to improving life quality through the education of arts and sciences, the exhibitions will feature giants in modern and contemporary art, along with talented artists from all over the world.  The main focus will be the Solarplate technique, an eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable fine art making process developed and practiced by Sag Harbor artist and master printmaker Dan Welden.  The two exhibitions, on view November 16 through December 29, 2019, bring Solarplate printmaking to the forefront of art.

    For this occasion, I will be extemporaneously performing short instrumental music for 18 works that I have selected, out of the nearly 200 pieces. I want to thank Dan Welden, Inspiration Plus, and the Southampton Arts Center Directors, with whom it has been a pleasure to coordinate this event since the beginning of its planning stages, this past February.

Performers had the chance to play right in front of (and jam with) music industry executives.  President Ted Mason, former guitarist, singer, co-writer/producer, and manager for the British rock band Modern English, hosted the event along with me.  We played Modern English hits and originals, and shared the stage with all the very talented musicians in the Hamptons, Long Island, New York City, and friends of the Stephen Talkhouse (a.k.a. “y’all”), who showed their best material.
