Do you have an eye for art? Would you be able to tell if a piece was created by David Salle, Liza Minnelli, Scott Hewett, Linda Capello, Paton Miller, William Raynor, or a student from Springs School? If you think so, take a chance during the Springs Mystery Art Sale, where the majority of 5"x7" artwork will be sold for $20. Each piece, which is either made by a Springs student, artist, or celebrity, will be signed on the back and sold anonymously. The exhibit will also feature an auction wall, where select artwork will be sold to the highest bidder.

"It's an opportunity to see if you can tell which art belongs to the hot shots and which are done by the kids," noted Tana Lee Alves, who is one of the artists featured in the Springs Mystery Art Sale.

The Springs Mystery Art Sale will be on view at Ashawagh Hall starting Wednesday, April 29th through Friday, May 1st from 4 to 7 p.m., and Saturday, May 2nd from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. A Closing Reception with live music, a live auction, and lite bites will take place on Saturday, May 2nd from 3 to 5 p.m. All purchased artwork must be picked up on Sunday, May 3rd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Proceeds from the exhibition will support the Visiting Artists Program and other art initiatives at Springs School.

Ashawagh Hall is located at 780 Springs Fireplace Road in East Hampton. For more information, visit www.springsmysteryartsale.com.

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.
