A Full Moon Vernissage in Southampton – Ooh la la

Submitted by on July 27, 2010 – 4:18 pmNo Comment


This past Saturday, party-goers and art lovers alike converged in Shinnecock Bay for an enchanting Vernissage at the private Southampton home of Peter Felfe. For the third summer in a row, New York artist Annika Connor and her production company, Active Ideas Productions, has collaborated with Mr. Felfe to put together an annual summer art show that doubles as a lavish party celebrating both emerging artists and the summer season.


Each year the theme of the show has been different but the presence of talented artist and an eclectic, international crowd are constants. Guests who spanned the globe and the jet set crowd from Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, Germany, Kenya, Mexico, Sweden, Russia, etc were all in attendance.

This year’s theme: Midnight Moon, delves into the nature of radiance and lunar transience, the evening was be an investigation of abstraction and legend through various media. The exhibition featured some works by artists to be seen in the upcoming Point Suite Art book including Marta Abbott, Annika Connor, Teodor Dumitrescu, Huber.Huber, Nicholas Papadakis, and other invited artists. Piano music by Marina Boldyreva and jazz singing by Catherine Cox completed this talented
display of art interacting in a Summer’s Vernissage.


The evening started out quite literally being lit by the moonlight due to a local power shortage, though eventually the lights came on and the artwork was illuminated for all to enjoy. Curated by Jill Smith, the work hung beautifully on the walls and a sculptural installation piece even illuminated the garden, adding to the magical atmosphere.

Champagne flowed, piano music danced through the air and the everyone left with smiles on their faces. We were left already looking forward to next year’s show.
