AUGUST 29 - SEPTEMBER 14
Opening Reception: Friday, August 29th 6:00 - 8:00pm
Sabina Streeter brings the storied era of the Sag Harbor whaling history to life in her show "Captains, Mates, and Widows" on view at the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum, August 29 through September 14, 2014.
Sabina Streeter's portraits in charcoal and mixed media feature the mid-19th Century whaling captains who reigned as the financial, political and cultural leaders of most of the eastern seaboard in their day. Along with Nantucket and New Bedford, Sag Harbor was one of the three capitals of the whaling industry during the peak years between 1829 and 1847.
Summer is almost over and we're going out like a whale! Join us at the Museum for a family friendly night of celebration and good fun!
Cromer's will be providing their famous fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, salads, and dessert all night long with music by DJ Carlos Lama! There will also be Driftwood Ale from Montauk Brewing Co. and wine from Water Street Wines & Spirits.
Let's eat, drink and dance in the shadow of the gorgeous Benjamin Huntting house!
Proceeds from tickets sales go directly to the Museum's capital campaign for restoration.
This walking tour will relive some of the maritime history of Sag Harbor and its colorful whaling captains and crew. The focus of the tour will be the stately homes of some of Sag Harbor's most successful whaling captains in advance of the Whaling Museum's captains house tour in September.
