Opening Reception: New Works

Estia's Little Kitchen x The SHED Workspace

Please join us on Sunday, April 7th, from 3:30 to 5:30PM at Estia's Little Kitchen for a FREE! opening reception that features the work of Margot Carr and Melinda Hackett.

The SHED Workspace is thrilled to help showcase the work of these two female talents. The new exhibit will run from late March until early June. All work is for sale. Proceeds will benefit the Estia's Artist Fund. It's an initiative — spearheaded by Colin Ambrose — to help support local artists, offsetting the cost of materials and supplies through the sale of art at Estia's.

About the Artists:

MARGOT CARR is an oil painter whose works are inspired by the cobalt blue skies and cadmium green lawns of the Eastern End of Long Island. Carr says: "I paint to capture a moment of sunlight upon oceans, lawns, marshes and architecture, leaving areas unfettered, to allow my viewers to complete the details in their minds and react based upon their own visual experiences." When she’s not painting, Carr has focused her career in a variety of creative businesses: as managing director of production companies, web development firms, architectural firms and currently a software technology firm. Carr is a graduate of the University of Vermont with a double major in studio art and art history.

MELINDA HACKETT is a painter who incorporates drawing, sculpture and printmaking into her practice. Hackett’s work has been described as organic, biomorphic ‘pop’. Her work is rich with saturated, jewel tone color and she populates her pictures with systems of invented and borrowed forms derived from the natural world as well as her own internal sources. A graduate of the Parsons MFA program, Hackett’s work is in public and private collections including the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, LI. She lives and works in New York City and Southampton.
