Visitors to the Mabel and Victor D’Amico Studio and Archive in Amagansett could feel the pioneers’ passion for art on Sunday, May 19, as the house was opened for its Founders Day Opening Reception. Works by local glass artists Hokansen+Dix, Andy Stenerson, and Marianne Weil enhanced the creative atmosphere.
The photography series “Life at Sea” by Matt Raynor will be on view from Friday, August 16, through Monday, August 19, at the Southampton Cultural Center. A reception will be held on Friday, August 16, from 6 to 9 PM. Raynor’s evocative photos captured during his time as a commercial fisherman exude the raw power and simultaneous peace of the natural world. On April 18, Raynor suffered a spinal cord injury that has left him with permanent paralysis from the upper chest down. Faced with this new challenge, Raynor hopes to continue to share his artistic vision with the world while finding new ways to make art. For more info, visit www.matthewraynor.com.
