See you this Thursday at the SummerFest After Dark at the Southampton Art Center?!

This Thursday evening, I have the pleasure of co-hosting the Southhampton Art Center SummerFest After Dark Party alongside Andrew Warren, Makenzie Moon Phelan and Danielle Neftali and I would love for you to join us. But before I tell you about all the fabulous things we have in store (because what I can humbly boast will be the best end to summer you will witness this weekend), I want to tell you a bit about the Southampton Art Center.

For starters, the Greco-Roman style building dates back to 1897, which I think we can all agree is pretty cool. A hub of art and culture in the village of Southampton, the center provides the community with inspiring, inclusive and regionally relevant programming throughout the year, including weekly concerts, workshops and family events.

Curious to know what’s currently showing in the galleries? First there is “Figures Transformed”, with works by Deborah Buck, Hal Buckner and Strong-Cuevas. This exhibition focuses on how these stylistically different artists all use the figure as a central theme in their work. Second, there is “Celebration of Trees”, a multimedia and sensory show. This exhibition invites viewers to reflect on the deep social issues related to deforestation and climate change.

So now you know what you’re supporting… let’s party!

Every fabulous night needs equally fabulous sponsors. Fortunately, Bulgari and Lalique have totally checked that box. Geo Events will transform the space for the evening supported by NY Lounge Decor and PS Balloon. Some of the most delicious names will be serving food, including 21 Seeds, Whispering Angel, a sushi bar from Ichiban Japanese Catering, a gelato and pizza truck from Dolce and Gelato Catering, a donut station from Sundae Donuts, Cotton Candy and Popcorn by Puff Delights, gem-inspired desserts by Rayo Events, caviar by Pearl Street and Baked by Melissa cupcakes.

And if that wasn’t enough, to top it all off, there will be a performance from none other than Kelis. Oh and what better way to get all the boys in the yard? A milkshake surprised by Cardi B’s lashes! Without forgetting that the guests will leave with a gift bag offered by Peter Thomas Roth skincare…

And while yes, this is going to be a fabulous night and yes, you’ll be kicking your ass on Friday if you miss it, the best thing is knowing that your ticket will directly help SAC continue their awesome mission.

We’ll see each other there!
