Over Memorial Day Weekend, you may have noticed a selection of artfully crafted plates in a handful of storefront window displays.
If you did, you were among the first to see them, and it could have been your last — as they will be auctioned off during The Retreat’s “All Against Abuse” gala on Saturday, June 9, at The Muses, located at 111 Saint Andrews Road in Southampton.
The participating artists include April Gornik, Barbara Maslen, Barry Kreiswirth and Lisa Allen, Dan Rizzie, Jack Youngerman, Jill Musnicki, Justin Greenwald, Miles Jaffe, Peter Dayton, Toni Ross, Dan Welden, and Lynn Savarese.
To catch one more glimpse before the gala, stop by J. McLaughlin in Southampton, RJD Gallery in Bridgehampton, Elie Tahari in East Hampton, Tulla Booth Gallery in Sag Harbor, and The Retreat Boutique in the Bridgehampton Commons, or attend the gala, which starts at 6:30 p.m. and honors Joy Behar and Robin Hommel-Tenenbaum, featuring Leslie Morgan Steiner.
Tickets are $500 and $275 for juniors under age 35. For more information, please visit retreatgala.org.
