The Southampton Center opened its fall
art exhibit, CHAS ADDAMS: Family and Friends during the Southampton
Village SeptemberFest festivities on Saturday.

“When we opened the doors of Southampton Center as a new arts venue in July, this is just the kind of quality show and community response we envisioned," Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have had nearly 1,000 visitors to CHAS ADDAMS on its first day.”
Kevin Miserocchi, the executive director of the Tee and
Charles Addams Foundation, spoke at the cocktail reception opening.
The exhibit runs through Nov. 3. It is open on Fridays through Sundays from 12 to 5 p.m.Future events this fall include a Halloween Party and Haunted House opening Oct. 26.
