The Children's Museum of the East End (CMEE) in Bridgehampton will showcase a collection of work from sixteen East End artists during Mostly Fish, an exhibition curated by Kimberly Goff of the Elaine Benson Gallery.

"One of my goals with curating shows at CMEE is to introduce an audience who might otherwise be unfamiliar with the incredible museum right in their own backyard," Goff explained. "For many who joined us during the Thirty Squared @ the Children's Museum artists' reception, it was their first visit."

The show will debut on Friday, July 7, with an opening reception taking place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., and remain on view through Tuesday, August 1.

"With another amazing collection of art and artists lined up for Mostly Fish, I hope to raise the profile of the Museum even further," Goff shared.

This exhibition will celebrate the aquatic life found in the homes, bays and oceans on the East End. Some of the artists featured in this show are Scott Bluedorn, Rossa Cole, Kimberly Goff, Edward Joseph, Ann Lombardo, Dave Nadal, Stephen Mannino, Lynn Matsuoka, Connie Oshrin, Leo Revi, John Rist, Cindy Pease Roe, Gary Schatmeyer, Barbara Thomas, Pamela Thomson, and Maureen Travers.

"We're delighted to have another opportunity to showcase the work of so many talented local artists. This exhibit in particular is perfectly aligned with our mission to build strong connections within the East End community by providing playful experiences," added Steve Long, the Museum's President. "And, since the theme of this year's Family Fair Fundraiser is Animals: From A to Z, we couldn't ask for a better fit. Kimberly must have been reading my mind."

The Children's Museum of the East End opened in 2005 and welcomes over 70,000 visitors annually. The Museum offers interactive, hand on exhibits and their mission is "to spark imagination and foster learning for children of all backgrounds and abilities and to build strong connections within the East End community by providing playful experiences."

Admission to the Museum is $12 for children and adults.

The Children's Museum of the East End is located at 376 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike in Bridgehampton. For more information, call 631-537-8250 or visit www.cmee.org.
