Opportunity for Artists

I have a space available at Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton from  October  6th to October 14 2018

I  plan to use it for the Hamptons Plein Air invitational and paint out to continue the tradition that Alyce Peifer started several years ago.

Alyce’s show has been wonderfully  received , and hugely successful.  Gene Samuelson , Teresa Lawler and myself would like to continue this wonderful event.

There will be a main show in the large gallery to display plein air paintings , or plein air inspired paintings  both traditional and abstracted images of the natural landscape, and the small room will be used for wet paintings  The idea is to paint each day at suggested locations on the east end, or your  own favorite spots, and bring the wet paintings  for display and sale in the small gallery.

This is open to all artists who would like to participate. The cost will be determined by how many artists will be in the main show gallery… Please contact me to confirm a spot in the show at or call at 631 324 6119

Thank you … Frank Sofo
