Greetings Friends, 

Winter is almost over. 

It has been 53 years since The Barge started. Times were simpler — it was not yet The Hamptons. The structure was relatively new. Today, time is quicker, The Hamptons are The Hamptons and SPRING and then SUMMER will be here before you know it.  

Winter Barge

Please click through the site for updates; On the DONATE page, you’ll see photos of the building during this winter and the Barge Upper Deck reconstruction. The GALLERY has an exhibit of Mabel D’Amico’s miniature boxes and click the HOUSE for a D’Amico House / Lazy Point winter tour.

Despite the severity of wind, snow and cold, we have hopefully been inspired by the winter of 2014, both the natural and man-made elements. City life provides us with endless sources of stimulation; museums, galleries, concerts and lots of food for thought (and comsumption). Our more rural areas were rich with visual displays of winter and of its wonderland. Don’t let the cold months go without notice. It’s a time to reflect and cultivate ideas, plans and directions for the season ahead. Soon our thoughts will begin to bud and spring to warmer weather; a migration to get our creativity back in action. Until then…
