SPECIAL EVENT THIS WEEKEND! Saturday, October 24, 1 - 4 pm; Sunday, October 25, 12 - 3 pm. Please join us in Hampton's Orangery for a unique art show featuring the Hampton-inspired, plein-air artworks of Paul Moscatt and other local artists. Mr. Moscatt, known for his portrait and figure painting, brings the same enthusiasm and energy to his work with landscapes. In the paintings above and below, he has taken advantage of the imposing architecture to highlight the grandeur of the Hampton Mansion against the brilliant summer sky. Mr. Moscatt’s painting group had the opportunity to paint at Hampton NHS this year. With the imposing Ridgely mansion, the ancient catalpa trees, statuary and gardens, this extraordinary park provides each artist with material for his or her unique artistic sensibility. Please join us as we celebrate their talent.
