Light Of The Ocean

When: 12/06/2018, 11:00 am - 7:00 pm

Southampton Arts Center presents the exhibit “Light Of The Ocean” by Francisco Alvarado-Juárez. The show will run through the rest of the year, closing on Monday, December 31. The exhibit is a dynamic, site-specific installation by Alvarado-Juárez, a New York-based American artist born in Honduras.

With the help of community volunteers and experts from Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program, the two main galleries are turned into a magical marine environment with pathways through sand, seashells, and other organic materials indigenous to the East End, plus video projections of water and marine life, approximately 30 of Alvarardo-Juárez’s large-scale acrylic paintings, and thousands of repurposed painted paper bags. The smell of the sea and sounds of whales enveloping the viewer’s senses will make for a transformative gallery visit.
