As if his big opening reception for Counterpoint: Selections from The Peter Marino Collection at Southampton Arts Center wasn’t news enough on Friday, Hamptons architect and art collector Peter Marino announced that the exhibition was the first public reveal for Peter Marino Art Foundation.

Housed next door to SAC at the long-vacant former Rogers Memorial Library building (at 11 Jobs Lane), Marino’s new space will feature a permanent public exhibition showcasing artworks from his vast collection, along with a rotating schedule of shows featuring local guest artists and collaborators.
