"I can't think of a more perfect assembly for this intimate conversation about the life and work of Robert Dash," said Alicia Longwell, who first met the artist in the 1980s.

On Saturday, April 11th at 11 a.m., a distinguished panel from the art world will explore the painting, writings, and gardening concept of the late Robert Dash during Robert Dash: Theme and Variations—A Roundtable Discussion. The lecture will feature friends of Dash, including noted poet Douglas Crase; Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator, Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Anne Raver, New York Times garden writer; and Longwell, who serves as the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art, and Education at the Parrish.

Robert Dash was born in 1934 in New York City. He took an interest in Abstract Expressionists as a student of ethnology and literature at the University of New Mexico, and after graduating, Dash moved to New York, where he worked as an editor and art critic, and, with no official training, took up painting. Dash purchased a home in Sagaponack in 1967, where he painted, created his unique personal garden, and also wrote poetry and a bimonthly column, "Notes from Madoo," for an East Hampton weekly newspaper.

"The world Bob created at Madoo is a living tribute to his gifts as artist, poet, writer, and gardener and I look forward to hearing from this splendid gathering of his friends," noted Longwell.

Along with the discussion, the Parrish Art Museum is honoring the work of Dash with "Robert Dash: Theme and Variations." The exhibition features the final series of eleven paintings created by Dash in Sagaponack, as well as eight works on paper that explore a single image of Sagg Main Street.

Admission to Robert Dash: Theme and Variations—A Roundtable Discussion is $10, and free for members, children, and students.

Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, call 631-283-2118 or visit parrishart.org.
