Art on Fire – Chihuly in the Hamptons
Please join us for our ‘cool’ fund-raising party benefitting WMODA in Remsenburg, NY on Sunday, August 5. Enjoy a stunning exhibition of glass by Dale Chihuly, who is renowned for his breathtaking installations. Chihuly fans in New York can now enjoy his art in a more intimate setting at the private residence of Arthur Wiener, the founder of WMODA.
Arthur Wiener is being honored as the “Collector of the Year” at the inaugural Hamptons Jewelry & Objets d’Art show by fellow art collector and philanthropist Rick Friedman. Louise Irvine, curator and director of WMODA, will fire your imagination as she introduces Arthur Wiener and the Chihuly exhibit in a setting of summer sunshine and wonderful water views.
The Wiener Collection also includes contemporary ceramic art from the Ardmore studio in South Africa and their whimsical safari of animal sculptures is one of the most popular attractions at the WMODA museum. The distinctive Ardmore imagery has been adapted for fabrics, wallpapers, and fashions by Hermès making it one of the most innovative international design brands in recent years.
This extraordinary collection of Fired Arts is exhibited alongside nature’s art – murals featuring fossil fish and plants formed over 50 million years ago in Wyoming. Fossils are another of Mr. Wiener’s collecting passions.
“I want to share my love for the fired arts and leave a legacy to educate and inspire future generations about the importance of art in our lives and culture” Arthur Wiener.
