Annually, the Museum mounts eight to ten exhibitions, ranging from the historical to the contemporary, and focusing on artists who have an affiliation with the Hamptons. The Museum does not limit exhibitions to famous artists; each year, the Museum displays the work of local Hamptons artists in the Artist Members Show–any member of Guild Hall is welcome to display work. For one day in the summer, local art is for sale throughout the Museum during the Clothesline Art Sale. In addition, the Museum hosts the Student Art Festival, displaying the work of local students grades K-12.
The Museum at Guild Hall is more than a typical exhibition space: it is a community center. In addition to being an exclusive museum displaying notable and priceless works, it also serves as a creative hub for the local art community, proudly featuring artists from all walks of life.
The Museum’s Permanent Collection houses 2,400 works of art, with an emphasis on the 20th and 21st centuries in all mediums, from painting, sculpture and photography to video, and installation art by artists of the region.
