Calling all artists!

Our 82nd Artist Members Exhibition Registration Deadline is February 21

Filmmaking SR

Join professionals from Hamptonsfilm and Guild Hall for a weeklong discovery of storytelling and videography. 

With a focus on visual self-expression, technical craft, and collaboration, students will gain experience in the entire filmmaking process – from development and writing, to acting, blocking, production, cinematography, and editing. SR Filmmakers will have a deeper hands-on experience in creating their films, especially in shooting and editing the final products. 

The week culminates in a screening of the collaboratively-created films for family and friends. 

Carn-evil. Created by students of Filmmaking Jr., Summer 2019.

Drink and Draw With Me… (Bri Ashe)

 

Meeting on the third Thursday of each month, Drink and Draw With Me… (Bri Ashe) is an opportunity to meet new people, discuss your day, and create art together. 

 

Equipped with “small art stuff” – pens, pencils, markers –, and some uncommon surfaces – napkins, coasters, receipts –, Drink and Draw invites you to unwind and unleash your creative side. Registration includes access to Townline BBQ Happy Hour prices on food & drink throughout the night. Designated Drivers are encouraged.

Circle of Voices: A Meditative Sound Experience

Circle of Voices is an evening workshop of collective singing, creative writing, and communal dialogue to explore and connect our individual thought, breath, and tone to the peoples and environments around us. 

Led by Guild Hall’s Patti Kenner Fellow, Anthony Madonna, the evening will center around tenets of Deep Listening, collective singing, and other participatory arts practices.

Open to singers of all backgrounds and experience levels. All that is required is the desire to connect in a welcoming circle of voices.

Game Night

In the past couple decades, game designers have been creating fascinating, immersive table-top games that make Monopoly seem like it was designed in 1905. Game night no longer means suffering through hours of rolling dice in Monopoly or Risk. Today’s newest non-digital board and card games cultivate creativity, problem solving, social skills, and dexterity through clever game design. Join Guild Hall and Game Master Noah Salaway in embracing the tabletop revolution as we play some of the best modern board games on the market the fourth Monday of each month. 

Take a break from the digital age and join us at the table! Ages 16 and up only.

Museum Mondays: Museum Director’s Choice with Christina Mossaides Strassfield

Gallery Tour of the 82nd Artist Members Exhibition led by Guild Hall Museum Director, Christina Mossaides Strassfield 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.

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 and we are honored to welcome Susan Thompson, Associate Curator at the Guggenheim Museum, as this year’s awards juror. Thompson is one of the organizing curators for the Guggenheim’s Young Collectors Council, which acquires the work of emerging artists for the museum’s permanent collection, and for the Photography Council, which expands the museum’s holdings in the medium of photography through acquisitions.

Thompson will review the entire exhibition and award up to 17 artists in the categories of Best Photography, Best Representational Work, Best Sculpture, Best Abstract, Best Mixed Media, Best Work on Paper, Best New Artist, Catherine & Theo Hios Best Landscape Award, up to 8 Honorable Mentions, and a Top Honors award winner which will be given a solo exhibition in the Museum’s Spiga Gallery.
