Summer exhibits start the season off on a high note.
"Embrace" by Shawn Heinrichs at the Southampton Arts Center

The State of Water
At the Southampton Arts Center, a photographic series of a submerged model posing with balletic elegance next to marine animals creates a kind of sublime underwater choreography. The images comprise Light on Shadow, Shawn Heinrichs’ ode to marine life threatened with extinction due to unprecedented levels of oceanic pollution. The photographer and conservationist—he co-created Racing Extinction, one of the most watched environmental documentaries of all time—founded the Blue Sphere Foundation to bring attention to the world’s oceans through art and activism. Scientists warn that 50 percent of all species could be extinct within 100 years; thought-provoking art might just be the most emotionally impactful way to inspire us to save life under the sea. “Art acts as a powerful reminder of the precariousness of their existence,” Heinrichs says. May 25-July 16, 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton
