Known best for the Addams Family, cartoonist Charles “Chas” Addams and his wife, Tee, who made a home here in the Hamptons, will have a visual presentation of their lives and work on display at the East Hampton Library Saturday, October 19.
As executive director of the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation, H. Kevin Miserocchi oversees its mission to educate the public about the oeuvre of Charles Addams through worldwide exhibition of his art and programs and publications in maintenance of the intellectual properties associated with his work that the Foundation wholly possesses. He lives within and actively oversees the Addams estate in Sagaponack that was deeded to the foundation to be managed as a tribute to his art and as a wildlife preserve.
“What an incredible journey this has been from a long friendship with Tee and Charlie to running this foundation in their names,” Miserochhi said. “It is a privileged honor to be the steward of all that is Charles Addams.”
The event is the final offering in the Tom Twomey Series for 2019, and will take place at 6 PM Saturday. Admission is free, but advance registration is requested, as seating is limited. Visit www.TomTwomeySeries.org to RSVP. A wine reception kicks off the evening at 5:30 PM.
