Guild Hall in East Hampton celebrates the opening of three new art exhibitions Saturday with a triple reception.
Guild Hall selected 27 works by 20th century artists from its permanent collection for a landscapes exhibition. Each artist has chosen a different perspective on the landscape, both real and imaginary, according to Guild Hall. Artists include Joan Baren, Robert Dash, Hans Kline, Hayden Stubbing and more.
The winner of the 73rd Annual Guild Hall Members Exhibition, East Hampton resident Christa Maiwald, puts on Short Stories and Other Embroideries. The exhibition features images embroidered on bedspreads, pillows, embroidery loops, lampshades and seats. The show is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
Tracing Moran’s Romanticism & Symbolism aims to increase awareness of the sources of inspiration that influenced landscape artist Thomas Moran. Selections include references to the artist’s interests in the Civil War, literature, poetry, mythology, scenic glories of the Western Territories, as well as the unspoiled countryside at a time of rapid industrialization.
The reception is Saturday, October 26 from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibitions will be on display through January 5, 2014.
Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street, East Hampton. Admission to the reception is free. Call 631-324-0806 or visit guildhall.org for more information.
