On the Hunt for Artistic Expressions

LongHouse Reserve is hosting Art Foray, an ongoing art scavenger hunt that culminates on October 31. Artists have hidden their work around the 16-acre sculpture garden (in trees, shrubs, and other spots) to be found, photographed, and tagged by participants. Lucky players will get to keep the art they’ve discovered.

All the participating artists are based on the East End, including Brianne Ashe, Scott Bluedorn, Rossa Cole, Conrad DeKwiatkowski, Fitzhugh Karol, Laurie Lambrecht, Mica Marder, Alexander Perez and Almond Zigmund.

The art presented in the scavenger hunt encompasses a wide array of materials like polymer clay, plant material, acrylic on wood, green crystal glass, crema marble, and much more.

To play along, go to LongHouse Reserve, 133 Hands Creek Road, East Hampton, and pick up a free game guide. The guide identifies all the hidden art and provides photographic clues to its general location. Once a piece is found, take a picture of it and tag the artist’s name and #longhouseartforay on Instagram or Facebook. This automatically enters you for a chance to win the art you’ve discovered. But don’t take or move the art once you’ve found it. If you don’t use social media, take a picture of the work and send an email to info@longhouse.org with contact details. You’ll be entered into the drawing.

The Art Foray at LongHouse Reserve comes to a close on Saturday, October 31, at 4 p.m. At 4:30 p.m., eligible winners will be drawn randomly from a hat and notified.

Art Foray at LongHouse is curated and produced by Scott Bluedorn. For more information, visit longhouse.org.
