Promised Land Remembered

The exhibition, a version of which was exhibited at The Art Barge earlier this year, consists of early tempera on paper paintings by Mabel D’Amico dating ca. 1939 to 1940s, accompanied by a brief historical narrative about Promised Land, illustrated with selected period photographs reproduced from various local, public collections, including Mabel’s own found in the D’Amico Archive.

Altogether, the paintings, photographs, and historical research recall and relay the overall historically significant activity of this former fishing port and menhaden processing plant located off Cranberry Hole Road in Amagansett. Promised Land Remembered depicts the presence and impact of Promised Land in the socio-economic history of Amagansett; and in drawing Mabel and Victor D’Amico to this area, Promised Land exerted specific influence on the cultural and artistic history of the East End.
