Through the Mud There is Clear Water, 2021

Acrylic & Oil Sticks on Canvas - 56in x 58in 

Superposition Gallery's 4 Year Anniversary is on the horizon and it’s taking place at #EastvilleMuseum in Sag Harbor! In 2021 I went to Sag Harbor for the first time and learned so much about the Black & Indigenous communities and history of this part of the Hamptons. WOW the history is strong! It was a day full of joy and sharing of communal knowledge.

Over the past year, Superposition artists have been asked to respond visually to the curatorial theme of RESILIENCE:

noun

1. the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.

2. the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.

RESILIENCE will take place at 139 Hampton St., Sag Harbor, NY 11963 with an opening reception on Monday, July 4th and a panel discussion and walking tour of the historical grounds of Black & Indigenous enclaves of the Hamptons on Tuesday, July 5th. Closing festivities will take place the week of September 30, 2022. For more information regarding how to support this initiative and the works available please contact Storm Ascher at storm@superpositiongallery.com

Thank you so much to Eastville Heritage and Eastville Historical Society for opening up your museum to our community so that we can continue legacy and longevity through art in this historic neighborhood, and be a part of your archival mission. Executive Director Dr. Georgette Grier-Key has worked tirelessly to spread the truth and overlooked history of Sag Harbor. We can’t wait to raise funds to help the museum hire archival researchers and build the bridge to a budding contemporary collection. Special thanks to our sponsors Phillip Auction House for supporting all of our efforts!
