Southampton Arts Center’s current exhibition, “Clearing The Air,” has been a remarkable showing of its mission of community building through the arts. Presenting art as a powerful tool for healing, both for the artist and the observer, complementary programming strengthens the exhibition’s overarching themes.

On Saturday, November 20, curator and artist Jay Davis and artist Jef Scharf will lead programs, including a silk screening workshop and gallery tours.

Scharf is a master printer, designer and drawer with works in the permanent collections of MoMA, the Whitney, the Met, and the New York Public Library. He will host an all-afternoon silk screening workshop from noon to 5 p.m. where participants will design, translate, and print images onto shirts and/or paper. Every person participating will take home two shirts and a print. Participants can learn more and register at

At 3 p.m., Davis, who is also the curator of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s Ambulatory Care Arts Program, will lead a tour of the galleries to learn more about the exhibition, artists and works on display. Participants can register at

Southampton Arts Center is at 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton. For details visit
