PechaKucha Night Hamptons Returning To Parrish Art Museum

Olivia Braat

Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill is set to host yet another one of their super popular, often sold-out PechaKucha Night Hamptons, a series that features a number of Hamptons natives and residents presenting on what it means to be an artist on the East End. On Friday, March 17th at 6 p.m., participants will share a roughly 7 minute-long presentation of 20 slides explaining his or her individual art/creative media. Fashion designer/Morgane Le Fay founder Liliana Casabal; artist/educator/curator Jennifer Cross; painter Eric Dever; artist/educator Patricia Maurides; winemaker Miguel Martin; horticulturist Tony Piazza; Madoo Conservancy Executive Director/author Alejandro Saralegui; and Shinnecock Nation member Shane Weeks are among a few of the artists to present during the evening.

Liliana Casabal, an Argentine-born designer, created Morgane Le Fay in 1982. The line was first planted in SoHo, but has found its way to the Upper East Side, Santa Monica and Malibu.

Jennifer Cross is an artist, educator and curator, currently serving as Dean of Visual Art at Ross School. Her work is known not only to the East End, but has reached New York City as well.

Painter Eric Dever is both domestically and internationally acclaimed. His work is on display in a number of galleries in New York City, as well as at the U.S. Embassy in Hong Kong.

Miguel Martin, General Manager and Winemaker at the Palmer Vineyards, brings his background of being a Córdoba, Spain native to his passion of wine. His travels throughout the world's wine meccas has enriched his knowledge of the art.

Patricia Maurides of Sag Harbor is a visual artist and educator, working in a number of fields at Carnegie Mellon University.

Founder of Piazza Horticultural, Tony Piazza, is part of the Longhouse Garden Committee and the Parrish Landscape Committee, and will present on the art of landscape, specifically throughout the Hamptons.

"The wealth of creativity in the East End community is just amazing," said Corinne Erni, Curator of Special Projects. For those unacquainted with the program, PechaKucha is not new to the museum: "The Parrish has presented PechaKucha nights four times a year for several years now, and we keep discovering more talent" adds Ms. Erni.

Admission is free for members, children and students ($12 otherwise).

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