We Show

This is what we do. We show.

We are exhibiting again in this year's Guild Hall Artist Members Exhibition. The artists donate 50% of sale proceeds to the museum. All of the artists are members of the museum. Guild Hall has been a fixture in the artistic life of the community for generations. While reading East Hampton Star archives I discovered the article describing the first member's show which includes information on some of the works and the artists that created them. Anne Cooper Boyd had a painting of a Wind Mill at Water Mill in that first Guild Hall Show. It is an honor and a pleasure to be part of this history.

THE EAST HAMPTON STAR. 
THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 15, 1938 
Guild Hall Holds First Annual Members Art Show 
The first annual Guild Hall Mem­bers’ exhibition opened with a reception and tea for more than three hundred at which the sixty-nine ar­tists represented were guests of honor. Hostesses for the tea were Mrs. Lorenzo E. Woodhouse, through whose generosity East Hampton’s community art center was built seven years ago; Mrs. Dudley Rob­erts, Mrs. William J. Whittemore, Mrs. Francis Newton, and Miss Ruth B. Moran, daughter of the late Thomas Moran, N. A., for whom one of the Guild Hall art galleries named. The Art Committee, headed by Henry Theodore Leggett of the Union League Club, New York, and East Hampton, received the guests. All three art galleries, and the foyer, were used for the exhibits, which represented four media: oil, water color, etching, and sculpture...... The artists join to­gether to form a pleasing and har­monious exhibition, in friendly fashion; some of them are widely known, with high artistic reputation of long standing; others are beginners.  VIA East Hampton Star here
