Our Program

Sound View’s way of giving back to the community takes shape every year through our Uncommon Art Artist Residence program. This year, we've invited a new group of emerging artists who will live and work throughout the property to be inspired by the North Fork.

We give each artist the creative license to work anywhere they wish—you might spot them drafting a score in the Piano Bar, mixing media right on the beach, or turning our Gathering Studio into a temporary film studio. As part of the residency, each artist is invited to share something with the community (that's you) whether it be a performance, an open working session, or even a display of their work.

Building a Creative Community

As artists, musicians and filmmakers converge at Sound View, a powerful conversation of the creative community ignites. With monthly, open dialogues for North Fork natives, we tap into the energy of community to celebrate inclusion and creativity. Our artist participants will host open working sessions, display key works, and perform, inviting the community into rare opportunities to witness the artist's journey, from inspiration to completion.

February Artists in Residence

She'll be joined by fellow artists Ryan Bock and Kym Fulmer (see more details on each below) for light conversation, no-pressure doodling (we'll have coloring books, but bring some supplies for coloring), and drinks!

No Cover! Please RSVP here.

Kara Hoblin

Featured Artist in Residence

February 10th - 16th

Artist & Curator, Kara Hoblin lives in Greenport, NY and works in various media, including chalk pastel, drawing, and collage. A sense of childlike wonder is apparent through the whimsical narratives of her work. Inspired and drawn to the natural environment she finds comfort in the feeling of the earth beneath her bare feet, icy saltwater on her skin, or crisp air brushing against her face. She continues to share, connect, and inspire others through creation. Working closely with many environmental organizations to raise awareness and build a community around the shared goal of protecting our environment.

She owns & operates a commercial creative company specializing in chalk murals, painted murals, illustration and live art. She is also the founder of the North Fork Art Collective, a community-driven online creative space for working artists to collaborate and grow together.

Ryan Bock

Featured Artist in Residence

February 17th - 23rd

Ryan Bock specializes in painting, drawing, puppetry, animation and experimental film methods. Bock’s practice is rooted in a need for narrative structure. Residing somewhere between mythology and nightmare, Bock depicts mise-en-scène riddled with symbology and allusions both cinematic and painterly. Maintaining a fascination for shape, shade, shadow, structure and optical illusion, Bock deconstructs his subject matter into often barely-recognizable delineations and structurally unsound repetitive patterns. In an attempt to confront the contemporary individual’s relationship to mortality, fear and superstition, Bock depicts correlations between the human figure and its innovations: technology, architecture and religion—both historically and fictitiously. By consistently contrasting historical subjects with those of the present, and using the recurring patterns found to generate predictions about our future—a process he refers to as ‘dusty futurism’—Bock propels his audience to reconsider the routine human experience and discloses the illusions implemented to keep them from questioning.

Kym Fulmer

Featured Artist in Residence

February 19th - 27th

An East Hampton local, Kym Fulmer creates colorful scenes of our local waters and aquatic life through various printing processes. Using techniques ranging from block prints to screen printing, Fulmer utilizes a minimalist approach to bring out the texture of our water and the various creatures beneath.

Fulmer takes influence from the natural landscape and ocean vistas that surround us on the East End, while also taking inspiration from various techniques and movements from art history including children’s book illustration and Japanese printing methods. Fulmer is most excited by the process of making art, and in particular with experimenting with countless different printmaking processes.

Fulmer was born and raised in San Diego. She spent several years in NYC before discovering the east end of Long Island. She holds a BA in Visual Art from UC San Diego and an MFA from Long Island University. She completed an artist residency at Curfew Tower in Cushendall, Northern Ireland. Fulmer works as a studio manager and artist at a small handmade wallcoverings company. She stays connected to the community through teaching. She has taught printmaking and other art mediums at the Guild Hall, the Golden Eagle, Springs School, and the Applied Arts School of Amagansett.
