The LongHouse Reserve Summer Gala Celebrates  living with art

 

The LongHouse Reserve Summer Gala Celebrates

Living with Art

July 19, 2008


 

 

Guests Will Pay Tribute to Acclaimed Post-Minimalist Artist Martin Puryear and Preservationist H. Peter Stern of the

Storm King Art Center

On Saturday, July 19, 2008 LongHouse Reserve will host a Summer Gala on their 16-acre East Hampton grounds honoring two distinguished contributors to the arts, Post-Minimalist artist Martin Puryear and Storm King Art Center Chairman, President and Co-Founder H. Peter Stern. Martin Puryear will receive the LongHouse Medal of 2008 and H. Peter Stern will receive the first LongHouse Art Leadership Award.

 LongHouse is pleased to highlight Puryear’s work, following The Modern Museum of Art’s (MoMA) recent major exhibition of his sculptures, which chronicled the evolution of the acclaimed artist’s 30-year-to-date career.  Puryear’s work celebrates the Post-Minimalist generation and his unique influences, which range from his interest in Native American history to Scandinavian woodcarving.  Primarily through wood, Puryear exemplifies the beauty of manual skill and traditional building methods.  His fellow honoree, H. Peter Stern, is a true “Renaissance individual,” who has been a great supporter of countless sculptors through the Storm King Art Center in the Hudson Valley, which he co-founded in 1960.  The Center now features an internationally-acclaimed permanent collection of American and European modern sculpture; focused on large abstract welded steel works from the 1960’s to the present. 

 “Both Stern and Puryear share with LongHouse a great dedication to communicate the relationship between art and nature,” said Jack Lenor Larsen, LongHouse Reserve founder and renowned textile designer.  “This year’s Gala celebrates their achievements and applauds their commitment with the LongHouse Medal and Art Leadership Award of 2008.”

 More than 350 guests will attend the always sold-out gala to celebrate and support the LongHouse Reserve tradition of aesthetic beauty in its most natural forms.  This year’s theme will focus on organic beauty, which will translate into art installations without bounds, a feast of earthy American flavors and décor that stems largely from the LongHouse’s own natural resources. Throughout the evening guests will enjoy wines from Kluge Estate and be introduced to Vineyard Estates at Kluge Winery by owners Patricia Kluge and Bill Moses. Benefit committee members who have made the evening possible include:  Edward Albee (Pulitzer Prize Winning American Playwrite), Jan Cowles, Adelaide de Menil, Helen W. Drutt English, Bill T. Jones, Mark and Elizabeth Levine, Dorothy Lichtenstein, David and Renee McKee, Robert Menschel, Stephanie Odegard, Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky, and Robert Wilson.

 A notable new art installation of Wild Horses of Sable Island by Roberto Dutesco will dazzle guests arriving at 6:00 p.m. for cocktails and a chance to wander the LongHouse Reserve’s impressive grounds, which will also feature permanent works executed by such artists as Yoko Ono, Miquel Barceló and Dale Chihuly. During cocktails guests’ interest will be directed to the LongHouse pond where Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company will perform a special dance.

 During dinner Christie’s auctioneer, George McNelly, will entice guests with a live auction featuring many exciting opportunities to experience art, including important works donated by Miguel Barceló, Dale Chihuly, Martin Puryear, Bryan Hunt and Toshiko Takaezu.

 All proceeds from the Summer Gala will support the LongHouse Reserve, whose gallery, arboretum, sculpture gardens, and educational programs, unite art and nature, aesthetics and spirit.  LongHouse strives to build upon its strong belief that the arts are central to living wholly and creatively.

 * Auction items can be viewed online prior to the event, starting in July at: http://www.longhouse.org/summer.ihtml and viewers can bid on certain items prior to the event by e-mailing Joanne Sohn at joanne@longhouse.org.

About LongHouse Reserve

Through its gallery, arboretum, sculpture gardens and programs, LongHouse Reserve brings together art and nature, aesthetics and spirit, with a strong conviction that the arts are central to living wholly and creatively. LongHouse Reserve is a not-for-profit museum that encompasses nearly 16 beautiful acres in East Hampton, New York.  Each year the LongHouse Reserve presents major exhibitions in both the gallery and the gardens. Currently, there are more than 60 sculptures for the gardens including works of glass by Dale Chihuly, ceramics by Takaezu, and bronzes by Barceló, Voulkos, Benglis and de Kooning. Works by Ossorio, Claus Bury, Yoko Ono, Opocensky, and Takashi Soga are also on view, while the installation of a Fly's Eye Dome designed by Buckminster Fuller and a site-specific Sol Lewitt add interesting scale and dimension. Open days for members and the public are 2 to 5 p.m.
