After presenting its Memorial Day Show virtually, Southampton Artists Association (SAA) will return to the Levitas Center for the Arts at Southampton Cultural Center to host its annual Labor Day Art Exhibit. The yearly exhibition will be held from Wednesday, September 2 through Sunday, September 13.

"At this time, we are very grateful to be able to have a live exhibit, our last show was virtual only. And while we did have some sales, the spark from seeing the art and meeting the artists in person was missing," reflected SAA board member Paul Dempsey. "While we still can not have an opening reception, we look forward to opening the doors to the community, which has supported us over the years."

The 2020 iteration will encompass works from approximately 40 local East End artists, with mediums ranging from oils to acrylics to mixed media to sculptures to photography. Featured artists will include Ian Carson, Lance Corey, Jody Cukier, Paul Dempsey, Dave Johns, Dom Lamontanaro, Gerry Giliberti, Donna Howard, Danielle Leef, Ann Legere, Katherine Liepe Levinson, Marie Lombardi, Jean Mahoney, Henry Mangels, Pat McGrath, Dee McMeekan, Katherine Milliken, Pamela Morrison, Linda Nemeth, Eleanor O'Sullivan, Sophie Sejourne Neva Setlow, James Slezak and Pamela Thomson. 

In addition to the Memorial Day Show and Labor Day Art Exhibit, SAA, which is comprised of professional and amateur artists, also presents a winter show in February/March, and fall show in November, as well as a collective members show at the Town Hall in Southampton during December and January. SAA also helms the beloved Art in the Park held at Agawam Park in Southampton in July.
