Overview

Meet the Exhibition Winners and take a tour of the 83rd Artist Members Exhibition with Casey Dalene, Registrar/Curatorial Assistant/Lewis B. Cullman Associate for Museum Education.

This year Guild Hall Celebrates its 90th Anniversary and its 83rd Artist Members Exhibition. The first Artist Members Exhibition took place in 1938, shortly after Guild Hall’s inception in 1931. The exhibition is the oldest non-juried show on Long Island and one of the few non-juried exhibitions still running. Deeply rooted in the history of the East End artist colony, early participants included Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Alfonso Ossorio, Perle Fine, Bill King, James Brooks, Charlotte Park, John Little and many more, showing their support of Guild Hall and its role as their community Museum, Theater, and Education Center.

Due to the wonderful popularity of this exhibition, around 400 artists participate each year. The Artist Members Exhibition attracts remarkable art world professionals as awards jurors who select winners in the categories of Top Honors, Best Abstract, Best Representational, Best Photograph, Best Work on Paper, Best Sculpture, Best Mixed Media, Catherine and Theo Hios Best Landscape Award, Best New Artist and up to 10 Honorable Mentions. The Top Honors winner is also awarded a solo exhibition in the Museum at a later date. We are honored to welcome Antwaun Sargent as this year’s awards juror.

The new tradition of creating an ecommerce website in conjunction with the exhibition continues this year in addition to virtual gallery tours and artist talks.

  • Casey Dalene

    Casey Dalene grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina with a noticeable passion for the Arts from a very young age. Studying Painting, Drawing and Art History throughout High School and College, Casey received a BFA in Studio Art and Art History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2005. Continuing her education, Casey attended the Fashion Institute of Technology State University of New York and received an Associate’s Degree in Textile/Surface Design in 2006. In 2007 Casey relocated to East Hampton and spent the next 5 years as Creative Director of Fabric and Wallcovering at the Elizabeth Dow Studio in Amagansett. With a passion for the arts as a common thread throughout her education and professional career, she has always been inspired by and involved in the local art community on the East End of Long Island. From the emerging Artists she met working in the Elizabeth Dow handmade wallcovering studio to the rich Art History of our community, she began to insert herself in the art world by creating an Online Art Gallery, artUNPRIMED.com, curating emerging and mid-career artists online as well as through 2 different pop-up exhibitions, one in Sag Harbor and one in East Hampton. Casey has also developed strong curatorial and marketing experience by working for a handful of Art Galleries on the East End including RJD Gallery in Bridgehampton, Markel Fine Arts in Bridgehampton, Roman Fine Art in East Hampton, and Sara Nightingale Gallery in Water Mill (now in Sag Harbor).

    With young children entering school in East Hampton, and strong ties to the Local Art Community, Casey brings a fresh perspective to the Educational programming, Curatorial Department, and responsibilities of the Registrar. She hopes to enhance the programming at Guild Hall to include the local community and beyond, ensuring everyone has access to and can take advantage of all the resources that we have to offer, as their community Museum, Theater and Educational Center.
