“We’re thrilled to present another exciting group of creatives at PechaKucha, the East End’s prime talent show,” said Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects. 

Valley Bak is an artist and Registered Nurse whose work examines the relationship between meditation, the creative process, and medicine. Bak’s experience of working with patients on the threshold of life and death and her own confrontation with mortality as a cancer survivor bring a unique perspective and depth to her work.

A participant in the Museum’s Artists Choose Artists exhibition, Jackie Black is a photographer, framer, artist, activist, coconut enthusiast, and bicycle fanatic. Black, who lives on Shelter Island with her spouse and two canine companions, will present On Photography: Sontag, Konmari, and Me.

Jeremy Brandrick is a 1/12th scale miniaturist, producing unique hand crafted doll houses and furniture. Mixing his love for architecture and interiors and obsession for labor intensive and tricky work, he creates museum quality pieces in his studios in Springs and Manhattan.

Painter Rainer Gross, originally from Cologne, Germany, lived in the East Village for over 40 years. He recently moved his studio to Cutchogue on the North Fork, and his home to Greenport.

Dinah Maxwell Smith, who studied painting at the Academie Julian in Paris, has been widely exhibited in and around New York City including the Parrish Art Museum, and the Slater Art Museum in Norwich, Connecticut.

Fine art aerial photographer Russell Munson flies his own plane out of East Hampton airport for his work. His photographs are represented in private, corporate, and museum collections including the Parrish Art Museum.

Joan Ranieri-Certain is a graphic designer who became a Usui Reiki Master Teacher. Combining her creative, visual art and the art of energy, she created Certain Reiki, a way to rest, recover, and reconnect.
