“The 725 Group Art Exhibition” Opening Reception
September 21, 6 p.m.
Sag Harbor maintains a rich artistic history, and the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum intends to honor that with the revival of a cherished exhibition. The “725” moniker alludes to the annual community art show, created by artist Lucia Haile and late owners of the former Goat Alley Gallery Elinor and Robert McDade, that was open to all artists with a 725 Sag Harbor telephone exchange before the gallery’s closing.
The insightful, new exhibition, curated by Michael A. Butler, showcases the Sag Harbor artists of today, who work in all manner of media and disciplines and portray a wide range of subject matter in diverse styles. The exhibition, the last of the 2018 season, runs through October 31.
