Art events and happenings across the East End

Gallery Events




Robert Lohman’s “November” at Southampton’s MM Fine Art.

Parrish Road Show

The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill has selected Bridgehampton artist Laurie Lambrecht, who works in photography and fiber, as one of two participants in the 2019 Parrish Road Show, the eighth annual iteration of the museum’s creative off-site exhibition series featuring temporary projects by East End artists that connect creativity to everyday life. Lambrecht’s site-specific installation “Limn to Limb” will be on view October 5 through November 3 at the Madoo Conservancy — the Sagaponack home and studio of the late artist, gardener, and writer Robert Dash.

Lambrecht will respond to Madoo’s trees, shrubs, and structures, as well as Dash’s colors through photography, printmaking, weaving, and knitting.

“My intention is to celebrate the garden of Bob Dash — a place that continues to inspire and reflect his creativity,” Lambrecht said.

The exhibition kicks off with a cocktail reception Saturday, October 5, from 3 to 5 PM, that is free and open to the public, and provides visitors the opportunity to meet the artist and explore installations across the grounds. There will also be a talk with Lambrecht and Candace Hill Montgomery Friday, November 1, at 6 PM at the Parrish Art Museum.
