On Sunday, April 2, at 4 p.m., Montauk Library will host “Then and Now,” a presentation about the Long Island Rail Road station area where the Montauk Artists’ Association’s (MAA) Depot Gallery is located. It will also be an occasion to discuss and celebrate the history of the MAA in honor of its 25th anniversary. An exhibition of members’ artwork will be on display in the Montauk Library’s Gosman Community Room Starting April 1.

Tom Carroll, a member of the Montauk Artists’ Association will be the event’s main speaker with other board and committee members taking part as well including: Rosa Hanna Scott, Donna Corvi, John Papaleo, Jim Levison, Teresa Lawler, Chris Lucore and Jane Bimson.

The Montauk Artists’ Association began in an effort to broaden the already existing art talent in Montauk and to bring to all artists, both professional and amateur, an avenue by which they could enjoy group art activities, receive art instruction and show their work. Originally, classes were offered in the evening, twice a year. Attendance was excellent and the students who attended these programs became the original members of the MAA.

In 1998, the association acquired the Long Island Rail Road’s Montauk station. The Depot Art Gallery and Art School are in this building. The gallery features 10-day shows with groups of members from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day. The Montauk Artists’ Association is an inclusive organization and welcomes all who are interested in the arts. Receptions are held the first Saturday of every show and everyone is welcome to attend.

The Depot Art Gallery at the Montauk LIRR station is at the junction of Edgemere and Flamingo Roads in Montauk. Montauk Library is at 871 Montauk Highway. To register for the upcoming talk, visit montauklibrary.org or call 631-668-3377.
