In celebration of the closing of the East End Collected2 showcase, Southampton Arts Center will present a performance from The Nancy Atlas Project on Saturday, June 11th.
East End Collected2 is a multi-artist show that was curated by artist Paton Miller. It showcases works collected by local residents from the artistic community that they support.
The exhibit reflects Miller’s vision of the East End as “an ideal environment for artists to create work.” Miller commemorates the area’s community of artists, and celebrates the collectors who have supported them and the Southampton Arts Center. He also marks the Center as a home where the local arts scene can continue to flourish.
Atlas has been described as “the missing link between Lucinda Williams and Sheryl Crow.” Nancy and her band of Journeymen have been dominating the East End music scene for many years now. Some of the artists Atlas has opened for include Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Toots and the Maytals, Jimmy Buffet, Crosby, Stills, Nash and many more.
East End Collected2 contributing artists include Monica Banks, Walter Channing, Eugene Cuttica, Peter Dayton, Angela Errico, Toinette Gay, Melinda Hackett, Glen Hansen, Gary Hatmann, Michael Jurick, Henry Koehler, Bill Komoskim Karyn Mannix, Fluvio Masi, Monica Mason, Hildy Mazy, Jon Mulhern, Miles Partington, Vincent Pepi, Dalton Portella, Will Ryan, Scott Santangelo, Mark Seidenfelt, David Slater, Ned Smyth, Dennis Snyder, Adam Straus, Mary Stubelek, Barbara Thomas, Hans Van De Bovenkamp, Charles Waller, Mark Webber, Nico Yektai and Almond Zigmund.
This will be the Nancy Atlas Project’s second year performing in tribute to the East End Collected2 Exhibition. Admission to the concert, which begins at 7:30 p.m., is $15.
