Welcome to EEA’s Annual Elizabeth Richard Memorial Members’ Show 2022!

Dan’s Reimagined Inspiration: 
There are few visuals more iconic to the East End of Long Island than a cover of Dan’s Papers. In 1987, after decades of being a traditional newsprint, Dan Rattiner made a bold move. “I thought it might really help the artists of the Hamptons if I put a glossy wrap around the paper and published the artwork of some of our fine painters as a frontispiece to the publication. It would be unique, something nobody had ever done before. Would people still pick up the paper?” recalls Dan in a 2011 story. Despite naysayers, including artists themselves, Dan stuck to his vision and has showcased thousands of artists. This Members’ Show is a nod to Dan’s creativity and resolve as well as to those who have graced the cover of Dan’s Papers over the years.

All works in this exhibition are by EEA Members. Each reimagination is inspired by artwork from a past cover, and the show includes a vast array of mediums, most of which differ from the medium of the inspiration piece. The gallery website includes the exhibition piece along with its inspiration.
