Champagne and Oysters


We’re nearing the completion of the 30th session of our Fellowship Program and are celebrating its support our 100th fellow in residence. Our 2018 Public Art Commission was just installed on the pedestal at the entrance to Silver Eel Cove and we are wrapping up the first of three exhibitions that are part of our 2018 Legacy Exhibition Program.

We’ve a lot to celebrate and we hope you’ll join us!

Fellowship Program: Session (30) Open Studios
Our Session (30) fellows, Brian Booker, Miriam Karraker, Yixuan Pan, Liz McCarthy and Emily Thelander have had a productive six-weeks on the island. Their studios will be open and filled with new works – paintings, sculptures rendered in Fishers Island Clay, collaborative video works featuring island residents. Open Studios celebrates the close of another successful session of our Fellowship Program.

Opening of our 2018 Public Art Commission
We are celebrating the completion and installation of this year’s public art commission, If Portals Could Raise a Ruin, an artwork by Carla Edwards.

Legacy Exhibition Program
Our 2018 Legacy Program is of to a great start. The first show of a series of 3 exhibitions features a 3-channel video entitled Bestial Field Recordings: 2015-2018 by Laura Bernstein (Summer ’16). This work is the culmination of a large scale project that was partially made and shot on Fishers Island.
