#friendswithboats examines just some of the symbolism inherent in boats, without necessarily depicting them literally. Boats are sources of leisure and commerce, battle and escape, departure and arrival, adventure and boredom. They conjure transit and movement that is sometimes hopeful, sometimes terrifying. Their history is steeped in migration, exploration, hunting, competition, pirating and human trafficking, as well as ordinary transportation. Boats may be packed with people trying to find a better life or contain a lone survivor in a life raft.

#friendswithboats is partly about waiting for someone to come to the rescue. It underscores the interdependency of humans who are connected and simultaneously separated by the oceans, bays and rivers around us.

A percentage of proceeds from art sales will be donated to Breakwater Yacht Club’s Youth Sailing Scholarship Program. Breakwater Yacht Club offers accessibility to the sport of sailing for people of all ages, income levels and experience. Breakwater Yacht Club is a non profit organization based in Sag Harbor, NY. http://breakwateryc.org/  Please consider joining BYC or participating in the 35th Annual Sag Harbor Cup Regatta on Saturday, June 3rd. https://www.sagharborcup.org/ Your #friendswithboats are welcome as well.

The exhibition will run through July 6. For more information and images, and prices inquire to: sara@saranightingale.com.
