Moran Studio Restoration Tours

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!

EXHIBITIONS

Boat Hulls: Photography series by Michele Dragonetti
East Hampton Town Marine Museum

Boat Hulls: Photography series by Michele Dragonetti

July-September 24

Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Sunday, noon - 5 p.m. 

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. 

Groups by appointment in advance.
Admission: $4 adults / $3 those over 65 / $2 students
