Don’t let the summer fly by, take advantage of The Art Barge this August. Join us for new workshops, a sunset concert with Music for Montauk, and our end of the summer exhibition ‘Return to Ashawagh Hall’.

We are excited to annouce our new exhibition ‘Return to Ashawagh Hall’. Ashawagh Hall in Springs, New York was the orginal home to Victor D’Amico’s art classes on the east end. Now 57 years later we are going back to honor the 80th anniversary of Victor D’Amico founding the Education department at The Museum of Modern Art in 1937. Victor’s philosophies and ideologies were informed by his pervasive belief that the arts are a bridge to educational and emotional growth. This is an open call to all Barge Artists and Faculty to submit one piece of artwork. The proceeds will benefit our programs and maintenance here at The Art Barge. We look forward to your support and participation.

Join us for the opening reception on August 26th from 5:00 – 7:00pm. The exhibition will be open from August 24th-August 28th.

50% of the proceeds from the exhibition will be directed to Art Barge programming and maintenance. Submissions are limited to one per artist and must be no larger than 36” X 36” square. Arists of all ages are welcome working in any mediums.

To submit a piece please send your artwork details (name, title, cost) to programs@theartbarge.org with the attn: Return to Ashawagh Hall by Friday, August 18th. Submission agreement forms will be signed at drop off.
