Much Ado About Madoo 2017


We’re celebrating our 50th year in Sagaponack! In 1967 Robert Dash moved to our little corner of Sagapoanck that he had purchased the year before and named it Madoo. Join us as we unveil an exhibition of Dash’s paintings depicting Sagaponack homesteads in our newly restored Summer Studio. The gardens will be looking their best and we’ll have over two dozen distinctive vendors.
