The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill currently has 73 works of contemporary Photorealist painters on view in its exhibit, From Lens to Eye to Hand: Phootrealism 1969 to Today. Included is the work of Israeli Photorealist painter, Yigal Ozeri, who is the subject of filmmaker Vincent Zambrano's latest documentary, Yigal Ozeri: The Chameleon.

The film will be screened at the Museum on Friday, December 1 at 6 p.m. and will be followed by an artist's talk with Zambrano and Ozeria. The 102 minutes documentary, which contains brief moments of nudity, was produced in 2016 and is described as a "rags to riches story" of Ozeri and his creative process. It depicts his changing techniques, ideas, genres, and features archival footage of the artist in his earlier days. Also included are interviews with those closest to Ozeri.

"The film and the conversation will add another layer to the understanding of Yigal Ozeri's life and work: his unique sense of fantasy, imagination, and ethereality," said Corinne Erni, Curator of Special Projects at the museum.

Ozeri is an artist with a global reach. His work is included in the permanent collections at The Whitney Museum of American Art, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the Albertina in Vienna (to name just a few). He also has solo exhibits in Bologna, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, France, and Munich.

The director and producer, Vincent Zambrano, is a native of Ecuador who was raised in New York City. As a multimedia artist and filmmaker, he explores politics, religion, and culture. His other works include Shadowboxing, The Moment I Died, and The Heart of a Broken Tale, which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006.

The Photorealism exhibit opened in early August in 2017 and will soon be closing on January 21, 2018. Admission to this event is $20 for non-members and $5 for members, children, and students.

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."

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