Southampton, NY – Tripoli Gallery is pleased to present the 11th Annual Thanksgiving Collective. For the first time, the exhibition will be split between three locations: Tripoli Gallery Southampton, Tripoli Gallery East Hampton, and the Southampton Arts Center. Curated by Tripoli Patterson, the exhibition will include works by Ross Bleckner, Stefan Bondell, Bruce High Quality Foundation, Michael Chiarello, Matthew Clark, Dan Colen, Scott Covert, Quentin Curry, Anh Duong, Sabra Moon Elliot, Eric Freeman, Saskia Friedrich, Félix Bonilla Gerena, Michael Halsband, Robert Harms, Mary Heilmann, Judith Hudson, Yung Jake, Benjamin Keating, Mike Kelley, Harmony Korine, Brendan Lynch, Dylan Lynch, John Messinger, Lola Montes, Enis Sefersah, Nathalie Shepherd, Bruce M. Sherman, Lucien Smith, Bosco Sodi, Keith Sonnier, Gordon Stevenson, Billy Sullivan, Nick Weber, and Darius Yektai.
The Thanksgiving Collective began in 2005 as a seasonal show, and has continued each year since as a platform both for introducing new artists to the East End community and showing artists who have been previously highlighted in the gallery’s group and solo exhibitions. Its success led to the founding of Tripoli Gallery in Southampton in 2009, and East Hampton in 2015, where artwork is now presented year-round.
For the 11th Annual Thanksgiving Collective, Patterson has selected a variety of innovative artists whose work embodies the current trends in contemporary art. By hosting the annual exhibition in multiple locations this year, Patterson hopes to display their work to an even larger community, augmenting the already existing and vibrant art scene on the East End. “Supporting and celebrating our artistic community is central to Southampton Arts Center’s vision,” says Michele Thompson, Director of SAC. “We are honored to work with Trip Patterson and his team to make this expansive exhibition possible.”
Tripoli Gallery Southampton, founded in 2009 as The Tripoli Gallery of Contemporary Art, has been serving as a dynamic platform for artistic dialogue between local and international artists and the East End community since its inception. In April 2015, Tripoli Gallery East Hampton was opened, bridging the Hamptons east and west, and continuing to feature the stimulating blend of emerging and established artists its Southampton sister gallery has become known for.
