Guild Hall: Education Corridor Artist, Aubrey Roemer / Nov 16 – Feb 25


2018 Guild Hall Education Corridor Artist

AUBREY ROEMER

The 2018 Guild Hall Education Corridor Artist Aubrey Roemer’s mural project Blue it! will be on view from November 16 – February 25. Roemer is a textile artist and muralist who has created public installations all over the world using figurative images printed and painted on textiles. Roemer has a long history on the Eastern End of Long Island, often exposing environmental or social issues. She completed a portrait project in 2014, Levithian, during which she painted hundreds of portraits of local Montauk, New York fisherman on fabric, exhibiting them in four different locations in Montauk.

Roemer’s mural project Blue It! will draw attention to the health of the intricate waterways surrounding the East End. This three-part project begins with a public beach clean-up in partnership with The Surfrider Foundation. The clean-up will take place at Main Beach in East Hampton on October 20 from 11am-1pm. Materials collected on the beach will be used to expose silhouette imagery onto recycled fabric in the rich blue cyanotype process. The printed fabric created at the beach will contribute to a larger collection of cyanotypes created by Roemer and used in a 30-foot mural in the Guild Hall Education Corridor. Altogether these blue images will amass themselves like the sea, which upon closer examination, will reveal the human-created waste that pollutes it.

GUILD HALL, East Hampton
Guild Hall, one of the first multidisciplinary centers in the country to combine a museum, theater, and education space under one roof, was established in 1931 as a gathering place for community where an appreciation for the arts would serve to encourage greater civic participation. For nearly nine decades, Guild Hall has embraced this open-minded vision and provided a welcoming environment for the public to engage with art exhibitions, performances, and educational offerings. Art and artists have long been the engine of Guild Hall’s activities and the institution continues to find innovative ways to support creativity in everyone.
