On August 18, people came from all over the Hamptons and the North Fork to participate in the 9th annual Artists of Shelter Island (ArtSI) Open Studio Tour. Fourteen local painters, sculptors, potters, mixed media artists, and one woman who creates “works that show surprise,” opened their in-home studios to tour participants — sometimes serving watermelon and other snacks, always eager to talk about their lives and works.
The Reporter interviewed three artists about their respective mediums, messages, and relationships to Shelter Island.
