New York Foundation For The Arts Host A Tour Of Three East End Artist Studios

Everyone loves getting an inside peak at the creative process, and on Friday, August 2, New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) hosts a private tour of three East End artist studios followed by lunch in Bridgehampton.

Led by Terrie Sultan, director of the Parrish Art Museum, the group will visit the studios of artists Eric Freeman, Steve Miller, and John Torreano, with transportation provided.

Mr. Freeman’s monumental, monochromatic oil paintings are rendered in an abstract vocabulary that evokes optical illusions of landscapes. His paintings reference the legacy of Color Field Painting, an art movement hailing—like himself—from New York.

Mr. Miller, a NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow in Painting '04, is a multimedia artist who investigates the ways in which art, design, and scientific technology intersect in contemporary culture. His work spans the disciplines of painting, photography, and sculpture, and has played a critical role in pioneering the Sci-Art movement.

Mr. Torreano, a NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow in Painting ‘91, discovered the lure of the East End after moving to New York City in 1968. In 1969 he was invited to the Edward F. Albee Foundation in Montauk, and since then has maintained a connection to the East End. He is known for using gems and other unusual materials to make “cosmologies” that challenge such modernist dogma as Essentialism, with theory and imagery related to astronomy.

The tour will conclude with lunch at a private residence in Bridgehampton with the artists. It’s hosted by NYFA leadership council members Carol Ross and Marjorie Silverman and board member J. Whitney Stevens and is open to the public, with advance RSVP required. Tickets are $375 at nyfa.org. Proceeds benefit NYFA’s programs for artists throughout Long Island and New York State.
