Mission Statement:
Guild Hall is an arts, entertainment, and education center for the community. Its primary focus is to inform, inspire, and enrich our diverse audiences by presenting programs of the highest quality in the visual and performing arts, to collaborate with artists of eastern Long Island, to foster the artistic spirit and to provide a meeting place for all.

In 1931, Mrs. Lorenzo E. Woodhouse dedicated Guild Hall as a cultural center for the community. Each year, more than 40,000 visitors take advantage of the hundreds of events offered by our three departments.

The John Drew Theater stage provides dramatic, comedic and musical entertainment, as well as films, lectures, literary series, and staged readings, all featuring prominent artists and writers with ties to the community.

The Guild Hall Museum features world-class art exhibitions of internationally renowned visual artists and emerging regional artists. The Museum also encourages local talent with community art exhibitions. One of the directives of the Museum is to collect, preserve and present the works of accomplished East End artists. We have a significant permanent collection and archive approximately 2,100 works of art.

Our Education program is devoted to serving the needs of the community and the local schools by integrating arts education into those programs that lend themselves to creative learning. We conduct master classes, studio workshops and outreach in the East Hampton School District.

While Guild Hall is proud of our heritage, we remain committed to shaping a future that nurtures creativity and inspires innovation.

Interesting performances are offered thought the year however their Air-Conditioning System, if you can call it that is marginal at best. The ushers who are at the doors prior to the events act more like BOUNCERS for a rowdy bar. Definitely NOT befitting the Hamptons Life Style

The 80th members show at Guild Hall, a wide selection of paintings show you should see and enjoy for yourself. My favorite was a house on stilts,

Extra tickets were at the box office, but the director asked that they not be sold to about ten people waiting. However, she generously invited us to sit in an overflow room and watch the proceedings on a screen. The room was comfortable and the air was mold free. Perhaps the decision to keep the unclaimed tickets stemmed from the people sparring to get these tickets, or maybe to hold the unclaimed tickets for late comers. It all worked out. Smart guests on stage, both well versed in constitutional law. The topic was Trump and the constitution, moderated by the intelligent host, Alec Baldwin. I like discussions about our constitution, especially legal scholars. Staff were pleasant. Definitely want to return.
