On Saturday July 24, 2010, we attended Midnight Moon: A Summer Vernissage, Southampton, NY, which showcased works of art from some of the forty emerging artists who are featured in Point Suite, a soon-to-be released book of contemporary art. Point Suite is a brilliant project that is led by Annika Connor, who is also a featured artist in the book, and who is the founder of Active Ideas Productions. Active Ideas Productions is an innovative corporation whose mission is to serve the artistic community by facilitating the presence of emerging artists and educating the public about their work.

Here is our attempt to paint you a picture of how the evening went:

Beautiful sunshine with the temperature being just right gave the event a head start. Of course, the location was perfect; lovely home on a beach cliff with the perfect view. Magical and amazing works of art transformed an already beautiful home into a museum of art. And, to our surprise, the moon came out early, as if to be in full compliance with the theme of light and the Midnight Moon concept.

Guests, art lovers, came ready to see the presentation and to study and critique the different flavors of art that were on display. Some made their observations from afar, while others enjoyed close-ups. Cocktails and finger foods kept everyone cool and comfortable and soon laughter and chatter filled the air.

Then pianist Marina Boldyreva soothed our souls with a few delightful treats before being joined by singer Cate Cox, who sang beautifully. It was a truly great collaboration; a very talented a brilliant pianist and an amazing singer. The party of art continued well into the evening. And in a way it never ended.

Midnight Moon was co-curated by Jill Smith and Active Ideas Productions, and hosted by Peter Felfe.
