Tali Jaffe Minor: Can you paint a picture for us of the Sag Harbor you first encountered 30 years ago?
In Sag Harbor, April Gornik Helps to Uplift Her Hamptons Community
In 2018, the artist couple April Gornik and Eric Fischl purchased a white clapboard church in Sag Harbor, the Hamptons town in which they’ve lived for over 30 years. They spent the ensuing years renovating the space—now simply known as The Church—and in 2021, it opened to the public as a nonprofit community arts center. Dedicating her time and resources to cultivating a space for community is perfectly in sync with Gornik’s values, and for this special edition, she spoke to Cultured about what she cherishes within the town she calls home.
