What’s on the Southampton Art Scene? A Village Gallery Guide

Southampton Village is awash with the arts! Here are just some of the places to get an eyeful (and earful) this season:

Arthur T. Kalaher Fine Art
28E Jobs Lane, Southampton

Southampton Village strollers can’t miss Arthur Kalaher’s gallery. Located at the end of a picturesque brick alleyway across from the Southampton Arts Center, the gallery showcases contemporary and traditional art, works by the Peconic Bay Impressionists and in particular the art of Nahum Tschacbasov (1899-1984). Exquisite landscape and figurative paintings framed in era-specific styles line the pathway to the gallery door. Visit arthurtkalaherfineart.com.

Chrysalis Gallery
2 Main Street, Southampton

A mainstay of Southampton galleries, Chrysalis exhibits a wide range of artistic styles—with a mission of promoting up and coming artists as well as renowned local and international artists. Chrysalis Gallery has its own framing department, too, and all paintings available for sale include framing. Frequent Dan’s Papers cover artists Daniel Pollera and Joe Chierchio are two of the many artists represented. Stop in to view the exhibition “Land of Liberty,” featuring fine artwork by Theresa Gianuzzi, Christine D’Addario, David Tyndall and Howard Rose.

Keszler Gallery
200 North Sea Road, Southampton

Located at the former Southampton Power Station, Keszler Gallery has sky-high ceilings, accommodating its inventory of large-scale artwork. Currently on view, and visible from outside, are works by Alexandre Arrechea, who represented Cuba during the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. The 15-foot-high curvilinear steel sculptures set on the grassy hill (“Helmsely,” 2013, and “Empire State,” 2012-2013) are modifications of those New York City skyscrapers. Inside, the gallery showcases works by Banksy, Marco Glaviano, Russell Young, Faile, Michael Dweck and others. Visit keszlergallery.com.

Mark Humphrey Gallery
95 Main Street, Southampton

You’ve peeked in the window of Mark Humphrey Gallery, checking out those Alex Katz and Jim Dine prints with your Golden Pear coffee in hand, but have you been inside? Mark Humphrey Gallery specializes in contemporary prints, showing those of Donald Baechler, Richard Diebenkorn, Helen Frankenthaler, David Hockney and Donald Sultan, to name a few—as well as Mark Humphrey’s own paintings.
