John Capello is a sculptor and mural artist from Brooklyn who has lived and worked in Sag Harbor for the past 28 years.

Ellen K. Pikitch, Ph.D. is an award-winning scientist, conservationist, and communicator who is transforming the way the ocean is regarded and managed.

Randall Rosenthal has designed, fabricated, and installed architectural sculptures found in public spaces, houses of worship, and architecturally significant private homes. Rosenthal’s work is currently on view at the Parrish in the exhibition, From Lens to Eye to Hand: Photorealism 1969 to Today.

Drew Shiflett is a visual artist who has lived and worked full-time in New York City since 1979, and part-time in East Hampton since 2004. She is known for her layered, collaged paper and fabric constructions, which are a synthesis of drawing, relief, and sculpture.
