The Parrish Art Museum will feature speakers from varied fields giving rapid-fire presentations about living creatively on the East End at Vol. 19 of PechaKucha Night Hamptons. In this iteration of PechaKucha, on Friday, March 17 at 6pm, each participant will show 20 slides for 20 seconds in a compelling 6-minute and 40-second long presentations.

“The wealth of creativity in the East End community is just amazing,” said Corinne Erni, Curator of Special Projects. “The Parrish has presented PechaKucha nights four times a year for several years now, and we keep discovering more talent.”
Liliana Casabal is the Argentine-born founder of the high-end women’s clothing line, Morgane Le Fay, Founded in 1982 and rooted in SoHo, it maintains its influence from the artists and creative thinkers there whose ideas permeated its cobble-stoned streets and haunting gallery spaces. The company expanded to stores on the Upper East Side, as well as Santa Monica and Malibu.
Jennifer Cross is an artist, educator, and curator who has shown her work both in New York City and on the East End. She currently serves as Dean of Visual Art at Ross School, where she helped develop the Integrated Arts Curriculum and establish the Ross Gallery.
The work of painter Eric Dever is part of significant public collections, including Grey Art Gallery at New York University, Guild Hall, and the Parrish Art Museum. His paintings are currently on view at the U.S. Embassy in Hong Kong. Dever will discuss the concepts light, energy, and matter.
