The PechaKucha Night Hamptons series continues at the Parrish Art Museum on Friday, March 16 with its twenty-third iteration. Presenting will be a fashion executive, land conservationist, arborist, sculptor, photographer, and three artists. Japanese for "the sound of conversation," PechaKucha is an activity that has gained popularity worldwide. Participants present 20 slides for 20 seconds each, as a means of communicating their work, mission, and/or message. This culminates in a 6 minute and 40-second window for the individual to effectively share something about which they are passionate.

PechaKucha was adopted by the museum in 2011, which has tailored the presentations to address the experience of living on the East End. Previously presenting have been horticulturists, photographers, journalists, conservationists, and artists of many backgrounds.

"Spring season has officially arrived at the Parrish with a burst of creativity at our next PechaKucha, the East End's prime talent show," said Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects.

Annette Azan has worked in the fashion and design industry for over two decades - having only recently delved into the field of interior design just six years ago. John Halsey, born and raised in Southampton, has followed in the footsteps of his predecessors as a farmer. Additionally, he has taken great interest in land conservation and has explored ways in which community and agriculture are connected.

Arborist Matthew Hartline works with Bill Miller & Associates, specializing in the care of trees, shrubs, vines, and hedges on Long Island's South Fork. Robert Hooke is a sculptor who works with marble, soapstone, alabaster, and bronze. His work, which has exhibited on multiple continents, captures both animal and human forms.

Tanya Malott, a self-described "champion of bold women," has been photographing her life on the East End (and around the world) for the last three decades. Professionally, she has shot fashion, wedding, and family portraits. Most recently, she traveled with and photographed fellow bold woman and Pakistani activist, Malala Yousafzai.

Painter and printmaker Anne Raymond creates large, abstract pieces on canvas and monotype. While she has exhibited nationally, she works and draws her inspiration from living on the East End. Landscape painter Barbara Thomas moved to the East End in the sixties and has been painting the area since the eighties. She teaches painting at Parrish and in New York City.

Lastly is visual artist Nina Yankowitz, who works with technology to communicate socio-political and scientific messages, the latter regarding the impact of climate change. She uses sound and projections, among other devices, to fuse art and technology into a coherent, expressive, and powerful message.

The event begins at 6 p.m. and is free for members, children and students. For others, there is a $12 fee for tickets. Advance registration is required for PechaKucha Nights and can be made online.

The Parrish Art Museum's mission is to "foster connections among individuals, art, and artists through care and interpretation of the collection, the presentation of exhibitions, publications, educational initiatives, programs, and artists-in-residence."

Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, please visit parrishart.org.
