the FIRST official web site for both
the Parrish Art Museum and Guild Hall for several years - over TEN
YEARS for the Parrish and Group for the South Fork now known as Group
for the East End!! The Parrish Art Museum in
Southampton and Guild Hall of East Hampton are
two pillars of our community who have given us beautiful selections from
their permanent collections as well as their current exhibits on a
revolving basis. Many of the most notable artists in the world such as
William Merritt Chase, Willem de Kooning, Jackson
Pollock, Jane Frielicher, Alfonso Ossorio, Fairfield Porter, Larry Rivers
and James Rosenquist each a part of the East End are presented on these
A very overlooked side of The Hamptons is of course its Native American history which is rooted in the Shinnecock Indian Nation and the Montauk Indian Tribe. Both the Montauketts and Shinneock, "People of the Stony Shore", stem from the Algonquin heritage and culture and the Shinnecock remain one of the oldest, self-governing tribes in the country. We are featuring the artwork of David Bunn Martine, a local native of Southampton.
In our Art Gallery you'll find both local, up-and-coming, very gifted artists as well some of the most famous ones. We maintain an exclusive feature of color work by Herman LeRoy Emmet of True Blue Pictures. Emmet is best known for his photographic essay about a migrant farm family entitled Fruit Tramps, covered by Life magazine and part of the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Much of the art in our gallery is for sale. If you are interested in a piece, please use your mouse on any of the thumbnail images you will find on each page to get the full screen shot and you will find the prices as well.
In the heart of Southampton Village, Southampton Arts Center has taken over the space where The Parrish Art Museum was formerly on Jobs Lane. The new arts center provides a dynamic venue to present the highest quality programming to our entire community through partnerships with a diverse slate of world-class artists, performers, educators and cultural institutions. It strives to keep alive Samuel Parrish's goals for our village while retaining and restoring its original architecture as one of the most beloved buildings in The Hamptons. Southampton Arts Center is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization and a historic landmark serving as a hub for future generations to strengthen arts and culture for our entire community.
