"Thanksgiving Saturday ArtWalk is born out of the enthusiasm of the season itself," shared Kathy Zeiger. "Many of us celebrate family and friends and we look forward to things to do to bring us together."

Once again, the holiday weekend will offer art lovers the opportunity to take free self-guided art walks, artist-led art tours and attend art events at galleries spanning from Montauk to Southampton, as part of the 4th annual Thanksgiving Saturday Artwalk. On Saturday, November 28th from 1 to 4 p.m., over 20 East End galleries will open their doors for the special seasonal gathering. "Artists and their art have dotted the landscape since the late 19th century -it is only natural as Thanksgiving brings family and friends together - a Hamptons- wide art walk can accomplish this as well," explained Zeiger. "It's festive and art is a mainstay of our economy."

The annual event is the perfect kickoff to the holiday season for the local galleries. "Shopping is a big incentive - black Friday & small business Saturday [as sponsored by American Express]," noted Zeiger. "As the season continues to extend into later autumn months, an opportunity appeared to focus on the small business of owning and operating an art gallery." And, for the first time, Artwalk attendees can join in on the community campaign to raise awareness and help stock East Hampton, Sag Harbor and Southampton food pantries prior to the start of winter by bringing a donation to select galleries. For a list of which galleries are accepting donations, visit www.zeigerarts.com.
