2020 Annual Art Show & Sale on the Village Green CANCELLED
The Art Show & Sale, held annually since 1975, is an integral part of the Quogue community’s summer schedule, showcasing the work of 25 local artists. It is also the Society’s largest fundraiser.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Art Show & Sale will not be held, as planned, on Saturday, August 8, 10am to 4pm, on the Village Green.
CELEBRATE ART! Benefit Talk (Via ZOOM) & (At-Home) Cocktail Reception Friday, August 7, 5:30 p.m.
Make a drink, get comfortable, and join us for a look at the art market during COVID-19 and beyond with art historian, dealer, and collector Frances Beatty of Adler Beatty. Adler Beatty is a Fine Art dealership and advisory firm dedicated to guiding both new and experienced collectors through the increasingly complex art market. All proceeds will go directly to funding the Society’s education, collections care, and historic preservation programs. Look for your online invitation in early July.

In 2019, American abstract painter Brian Rutenberg took party goers on a tour behind the studio door (photo left) — from the salt marshes in South Carolina’s low country to New York City — exploring the making of an artist, his joy of the process, and his love of art history. His recent memoir is Clear Seeing Place.
