Local art fans will have a chance to survey the Hamptons gallery scene in a big way over Thanksgiving weekend this year. On Saturday, November 28, from 1–5 p.m., more than 25 galleries from Montauk to Southampton will be open and available for ArtWalk Hamptons’ fourth annual Thanksgiving Art Walk, so plan accordingly.
The free, self-guided gallery tour is now a tradition, but 2015 is the first year the event will also benefit and raise awareness for area food pantries and help stock their shelves with food donations before the difficult winter months.
As art lovers drive from village to hamlet, and gallery to gallery in each, participating venues will encourage visitors to send checks or drop off nonperishable food items in donation boxes to support East Hampton Food Pantry (easthamptonfoodpantry.org) and their Amagansett Satellite, Sag Harbor Community Food Pantry (sagharborfoodpantry.com), and Human Resources of the Hamptons Food Pantry (hrhamptons.org).
