"We are so grateful to Barbara for approaching us with this idea a few months ago," expressed Loretta K. Davis, Executive Director at The Retreat. "The work is incredible and it provides such a positive and uplifting feeling when you walk in our door."

Inspired by her participation in East End Arts' JumpstART program, Barbara Maslen, a Sag Harbor-based artist, recently created and painted an art installation that will be featured at The Retreat's office in East Hampton.

Consisting of hand painted wooden squares, the piece features imagery painted with colorful, bold pictures, inspired by the East End's gorgeous landscapes and farmland. Maslen also took inspiration from The Retreat's philosophy of bringing hope and rebirth to the lives of the people they touch.

"Through my Project: ART4ALL2C, my mission is to bring big, bright, original art to otherwise neglected spaces to energize the space, engage the viewer and bring beauty and joy to people going about their everyday lives," shared Maslen.

The artist's large-scale custom murals are hand painted on site. Her mural commissions include both residential and commercial hospitality and healthcare installations like East Main Street in Riverhead, Peconic Bay Medical Center, the two Riverhead branches of Suffolk County National Bank, The East End Pediatrics in East Hampton and the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
