East End Collected2

 East End Collected2, a multi-artist show curated by artist Paton Miller opened at the Southampton Arts Center this weekend.
The Southampton Arts Center has a beautiful light filled gallery.
Ball and Chain by Charles Waller
mixed media
Charles Waller's Ball and Chain caught my gaze from across the gallery. Upon closer inspection, the ball of the ball and chain is a wedding dress. Waller has done a wedding dress inspired mixed media series that you can check out called the Bridal Suite here.
East End Collected is a showcase of works collected by local residents from the artistic community that they support.

The outer walls of the Grosvenor Atterbury designed Art Center are studded with framed frescos of Madonna and Child. What are their histories? Where they collected by Samuel Parrish, or are they souvenirs of European tours donated by local families when they became passe`. I think of my own mother as a walk past the many icons.
Wishing a blessing for all mothers, especially this weekend.
