A Walk Around Amagansett

 The #Coldwatersurferseries show opened at Neoteric Fine Art this weekend. I went to Amagansett to check it out on Saturday afternoon. James Katsipis was at the gallery greeting visitors. I was pleasantly surprised to see him as I knew the previous night's opening must have been a long exciting and exhausting evening. James said that over 400 people attended. The open included live music and a special showing of Katsipis' surf film.
The photographs were mounted on plexiglass. 
I wanted to touch them. 
One of the large pieces would look fantastic over a fireplace in a beach house great room.
In the back gallery there was a grouping of Katsipis' portraiture.

Unique portraits of the Cold Water Surfers.
Not your usual glammed up surf models.
Neoteric is in an old home that used to be an antique shop. Don't let the Antiques sign on the side of the building fool you.
Neoteric - 208 Main Street, Amagansett
#coldwatersuferseries is showing until May 22nd
Such a beautiful day for walking around town.
Amagansett is a great little town.
It has all of the basics.
Plus the summer beach shops.
Love Sylvester & Co.'s front porch.
 Outside Decorum two little pups waited for their "Mum".
 Shhh, there she is untying them...
Crossroads Music is not to be missed.
Amagansett Square shops.
Still a bit cool for sitting outside at Astro's Pizza
"The Talkhouse"
A must do for live music at least once during the summer.
Beth had an infant strapped to her chest and was busy packing up dozens of beautiful peony arrangements for a wedding that afternoon.
Beach chairs and Gas Grills prominently displayed.
  Before leaving town, I noticed a "Museum" sign pointing towards the ocean.  
 The Marine Museum is on Bluff Road just off Atlantic Avenue.
An Open House sign directed me to a building behind the Museum.
 The Community Boat Shop of the East End Classic Boat Society
 The Community Boat Shop is a sunlit space filled with the smell of wood and views over the dunes toward the Atlantic Ocean. It is a beautiful space to learn the art of boat building, restoration and nautical skills. The boat in progress below will be raffled off as a fund raiser for the society.  See their site for previously raffled hand made boats.
 The Society also works to restore old boats. 
"The Tern" below was donated to them and is from the 1920s.
 Atlantic Beach is a just around the corner from the Museum.
 Atlantic Beach Hut

#1 is the Library, #7 is the Marine Museum
