Friday August 11, Friday August 18, Sunday August 27

Join EHHS staff on a walking tour from Clinton Academy to the Moran Studio, the home and art studio of Thomas Moran and Mary Nimmo Moran. Thomas Moran is often credited as one of the fathers of the National Parks Service - his groundbreaking paintings of natural areas in the American West, including Yellowstone, were instrumental in the creation of the National Parks Service. Mary Nimmo Moran was the only woman fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, a talented artist in her own right, and an avid gardener. Their studio is cited as the first artist studio in East Hampton and fundamental in the establishment of the East End of Long Island as an important artists colony. It was purpose built as a studio first and a home second. The restoration process of the building is now in its final phase of construction and the Garden Club of East Hampton has re-created a selection of Mary's gardens. Our staff will share this long and exciting journey with you. Be inspired to help the Thomas Moran Trust get to the finish line!

ALL TOURS BEGIN AT 10AM AND ARE FREE

TOURS BEGIN AT THE CLINTON ACADEMY, 151 MAIN STREET, EAST HAMPTON

GUESTS MUST BE PREPARED TO WALK ON SIDEWALKS APPROXIMATELY 1/8 MILE TO AND FROM THE STUDIO

Boat Hulls: Exhibition Open House
East Hampton Town Marine Museum

Boat Hulls: Exhibition Open House

Saturday July 15, 3-5pm

Drop in to meet the artist, Michele Dragonetti and see her new exhibition, Boat Hulls, now on view at the Marine Museum. Learn about her work, what inspires her and how she creates the images in her ongoing series. 

Michele Dragonetti lives and works in both Amagansett and Manhattan. Her Boat Hulls series began in the marinas of Montauk where she was drawn to boats in need of repair and refurbishing.  She finds particular appeal in the contrast between the abstract patterns of the painted lines and colors of the hulls, and the overlying evidence of their weather and age, which together create a unique interplay of textures. By focusing her compositions on the triangular patterns of the hulls in a square format, she is able to highlight the essential geometry of the images.  Photos in the ongoing series transform often humble vessels into abstract portraits, celebrating their imperfect appeal.

In 2016 the Wallace Collection became a part of the holdings of the East Hampton Historical Society thanks to the generous support of the Robert D.L. Gardiner Foundation. The paintings and etchings portray the variety of landscapes of the East End, including agrarian, seaside, and natural areas. Artists include Thomas Moran, Mary Nimmo Moran, Edward Lamson Henry, Hamilton King, Edward Gay, and many others. 

Caught on Canvas: Views of Eastern Long Island Landscapes from the Wallace Collection, 1850-1935 will show a sample of the Wallace Collection, as a preview for the entire collection which will eventually be on view at the Gardiner Mill Cottage.

The Gardiner Mill Cottage is the property of the Village of East Hampton, and restoration work is now underway, with plans for the site to open in 2018. At that time, the East Hampton Historical Society will work with the Village to create innovative exhibitions and programs to share with the community.
