Grant Haffner works to perfect the art of keeping busy
Publication: The East Hampton Press & The Southampton Press
by Pat Rogers

Grant Haffner is a busy man. So busy, he had to bypass the Saturday opening of a two-person exhibit featuring his artwork at Sen Spice Lounge in Sag Harbor. In a sense, his crowded schedule isn’t all that unusual, and not completely by choice: the Springs artist’s agenda typifies the struggle of many area artists who juggle employment, financial obligations, making new work, and trying to secure spaces where their art can be seen. Attending art openings to see the work unveiled for the public is a perk that cannot always be enjoyed. Mr. Haffner wears one additional hat. He is one of the movers and shakers of Bonac Tonic—a grass roots art collective that stages group shows. Bonac Tonic exhibitions typically include founding members: Mr. Haffner, Scott Gibbons, Justin Smith and Carly Haffner, his twin sister. The group has a core of seven members.

Art On The East End

The East End has been a vibrant art community since the 1870s, when the Long Island Rail Road made the area easily accessible from New York City. Thomas Moran settled in East Hampton with his family in 1884, and his studio soon became a gathering place for artists and intellectuals. A number of Moran's bucolic landscapes are featured in the exhibition, including A Midsummer Day, East Hampton, Long Island (1903), which captures the lush greenery of the countryside. Childe Hassam (1859-1935), one of America's most prominent Impressionists, was a seasonal resident of the Hamptons from 1919 until his death. One of many artists fascinated by the area's unique quality of light, Hassam used short brushstrokes and a vivid color palette to evoke glimmering and flickering rays of light in his oil painting Little Old Cottage, Egypt Lane, East Hampton.
