Overview

Gallery Tour of the 82nd Artist Members Exhibition led by Guild Hall Curatorial Assistant, Casey Dalene highlighting her personal favorites in the show.

For 82 years, Guild Hall has reserved space in its exhibition schedule for the Annual Guild Hall Artist Members Exhibition. The first installment took place in 1938, shortly after Guild Hall’s inception in 1931. It 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.

  • 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. After 5 years of growing Elizabeth Dow’s fabric and wallcovering collections, Casey left to start a family and has two children, now ages 3 and 5, and in 2012 to begin her own textile company, bycasey LLC, utilizing her own paintings and drawings as print designs on linen fabric.
