When you first put your feet in the sand it’s warm. A sensation like no other, the warmth travels up your body. All while you look out on to an ocean curling forward of colors that are sparkling bottle green, deep viridian with pearly white foam exploding at the edge.
It smells good without any defined smell. Breath in deep and at the bottom of the breath it feels clean almost like menthol. When you breath out, just a feeling of well being.
Enjoy the view,
I’m participating in a panel discussion July 11 on Plein Air Painting and Land Conservation, please come.
Connecting Art and Conservation – a Panel Presentation
Market Art + Design, Fairview Farm, Horsemill La, Bridgehampton
3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Peconic Land Trust, in partnership with Market Art + Design, is hosting an afternoon conversation on the “en plein air” style of art, made famous beginning with the Shinnecock Hills Summer School of Art in 1891 by artist William Merritt Chase.
Capturing the landscapes that have been both protected and those that are no longer here but live on through their works, the artists of Plein Air Peconic continue a longstanding tradition that was born on the East End.
The panel-style discussion will focus on the artists’ inspiration, the role land conservation has played in protecting the heritage landscapes, and the work of the Trust to save views that we all know and love.
Moderated by Hamptons Art Hub Publisher & Executive Editor Pat Rogers, panel will include John v.H. Halsey, President of the Trust, Founding Plein Air Peconic members Gordon Matheson, Casey Chalem Anderson, Kathryn Szoka, and special invited guests.
Call the Trust ( 631-283-3195) to RSVP and for a FREE pass to Market Art + Design for Saturday, July 11 – including access to the panel presentation!
