Earth Day Weekend Celebration
East Hampton - NY
eARThHAMPTONS, the brainchild of artist Anahi DeCanio, creative director of ArtyZen Studios, will be an Earth Day ART & DESIGN WeekendCelebration at historic Ashawagh Hall. The exhibit will showcase works from Josh Hadar- Dan Welden - Jim Gemake, Christine D'Addario, Lori Horowitz, Geralyne Lewandowski, Michele Dragonetti, Mary Milne, Idoline Duke and Anahi DeCanio. ZCI Woodworks will be exhibiting beautiful benches and tables made from reclaimed lumber.
Edwina von Gal, will be presenting The PRFCT Landscape at 11 am on Sunday April 24th. Principal of her eponymous landscape design firm since 1984, Edwina has created landscapes with a focus on simplicity and sustainability for private and public clients around the world. A light lunch will be served courtesy of The Terry Thompson Team at Douglas Elliman.
Much sought after Naula will be showing custom made furniture. One of the pieces on exhibit, is a specially made ottoman called the Time Capsule. Naula created with a core of reclaimed magazines to replace the wood structure that would otherwise be needed to build this type of furniture. The foundation for this idea is that many years from now, when magazines, paper publications, etc. are a thing of the past, this capsule project has recorded a moment in time from our generation for a future generation to one day discover.
Activities are planned throughout both days with local purveyors of the best natural products from the East End. Meet award winning artists and artisans along with the best of local earth friendly vendors such as Hamptons Handpoured and upcycled vintage treasures from Garagiste Chic. Perfect Earth Project is planning additional activities on the Ashawagh lawn. Music will be provided by Job Potter.
In addition to outdoor vendors and Earth Day related activities, Toni Germie Architecture and Design Representative of Benjamin Moore will be making a presentation on the Power of Color - Creating Healthy Living Environments. Interior designers in attendance can earn a Continuing Education Unit for this lecture which will also be of interest to the general public. Master printmaker Dan Welden will be making a presentation of eco-friendly non hazardous print making techniques.
Spring is a wonderful time of year to visit the area. Gardens and fields will be flourishing but the shops and restaurants will be easier to navigate before the Summer crowds arrive. This is a great weekend to feed your creative soul and enjoy the East End. Ashawagh Hall is just a few miles from the center of town and the famous home of artists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner.
