GATHERING GROUNDS: THE CHURCH
When strolling Madison Street in Sag Harbor, stop and appraise its once-shuttered Methodist church with fresh eyes. Under the vision of owners and artists, Eric Fischl and April Goralnick, along with Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership, who oversaw its top-to-bottom restoration, the historic structure has been reconceived as a creative mecca. With an artist residency program, ample exhibition space and a public garden, The Church is designed as a holistic center devoted to continuing the village’s proud legacy as a makers’ community. Kicking off the season is “Road Rage,” a show devoted to disparate artists’ interpretations of the automobile—with much more in store.
