Chase Edwards Contemporary Gallery in Bridgehampton has joined forces with the Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer Foundation to raise funds for The Edie Windsor Healthcare Center at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

On Sunday, June 20, from noon to 3 p.m., the gallery will host Judith Kasen-Windsor (Edie Windsor’s widow) in a pride event to showcase “Shoulders of Giants,” a solo exhibition by Rachel Wilkins. The show is curated by Mago and this multimedia body of work, featuring Edie Windsor, pays homage to the change makers and unsung heroes whose tireless efforts helped to bring about social and political progress for LGBTQ people.

The guest speaker at the event will be Attorney General of New York Letitia James. Special guests include Suffolk County Attorney General TJ Hatter and his wife Isha Hatter, Chief Administrative Officer for Stony Brook Southampton Hospital Bob Chaloner and New York State Assembly member Rebecca Seawright.

The Edie Windsor Healthcare Center in Hampton Bays is a new facility providing comprehensive medical and mental healthcare for the LGBTQ+ community, including those with HIV/AIDS and transgender health and care management.

Chase Edwards Contemporary Gallery is at 2462 Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton. For more information about the event, visit chaseedwardsgallery.com.
