Anthony Madonna is an interdisciplinary collaborative artist, educator, and creative producer, Anthony strives to construct experiences that both critically challenge our individual beliefs and bring awareness to our responsibility as a community.

Anthony has worked within institutions such as The McCarter Theatre Center, The Juilliard School, and the Barbican Centre. His projects have been shown and/or performed as part of the Tate Modern: Tate Exchange (London), the Barbican Centre’s Dialogue, UnFinished, and Curious festivals (London), Guild Hall of East Hampton (Long Island, NY), and The Arts Center at Duck Creek (Long Island, NY).
Anthony currently serves as the Patti Kenner Director of Learning + New Works at Guild Hall of East Hampton. In this role he manages all Guild Hall (GH) initiatives on site, and in schools, the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council (the first paid teen arts program in the region), and Guild Hall’s three residency programs: the Guild Hall William P. Rayner Artist-in-Residence program; Community Artist-in-Residence program; and the Guild Hall & Bel Canto Bootcamp Resident Artist series.

In developing her own color language, Mary Boochever has explored sources as diverse as the Kabala and Goethe's Color Theory. Boochever's paintings, sculptures, and installations draw the viewer into the immediacy of the color experience. Born into a Washington, D.C., Foreign Service family in 1954, she later studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich, Germany, under Mac Zimmerman, Günther Fruhtrunk, and Paul Meyer-Speer. Relocating to New York City in 1978, she taught at the School of Visual Arts and guest-lectured at Yale University. After moving to Long Island in 1993 she taught at Suffolk Community College in Riverhead and Lacoste School of the Arts in France. The artist has shown extensively in galleries and museums in the U.S. and Europe. She currently lives and works in Sag Harbor, New York.
