Mixed media artist Ben Moon and the renowned artist William Quigley, known as “The Pleasurists,” have joined forces and are collaborating to bring the Hamptons their second annual soiree, “Mash – Up Society,” taking place in the midst of ArtHamptons weekend. The opening night party will take place on Friday July 11th at Quigley’s studio on Schenck’s Alley, Skrapper Studios. This exhibit will be a beautiful composition of sights and sounds, and will showcase the art of William Quigley and Ben Moon.The exhibit will showcase Moon’s new work in his BEFORE/AFTER painting series, as well as his mystical musical visual wonderland, “ROKLYFE” featuring performances by DJ Monikkr, and RockStarlet Bella Saona, “Bella and The Beast”, who Quigley found through his collaborations working with the band Dispatch. Additionally, the work of local fledgling painter Alex George McCue will be debuted at the exhibit.
From July 11th through July 19th, a portion of sales from SkrapperStyle Tshirts, Ben Moon merchandise, Quigley prints and Casamigos Cocktails will be donated to Soldier Ride, a Wounded Warriors event in Amagansett on July 19th which aims to use cycling and the bonds of service to overcome physical, mental, or emotional wounds. Moon has also been selected to paint the exterior of a 1985 Rolls Royce “Silver Spur” with his signature black and white designs, which will debut at the opening night party. The car, owned by New York Collector Frank Marzano, has been prepped with a special temporary paint known as “plastic dip.” This car will be auctioned at the end of the summer, with 100% of proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors charity.
