The Parrish Art Museum features speakers giving rapid-fire presentations about living creatively on the East End at PechaKucha Night Hamptons, Vol. 23. At this iteration of PechaKucha, on Friday, March 16 at 6pm, speakers will show 20 slides for 20 seconds in compelling 6-minute and 40-second long presentations. The roster includesfashion executive Annette Azan, land conservationist Josh Halsey, arborist Matthew Hartline, sculptor Robert Hooke, photographer Tanya Malott, artists Anne Raymond, Barbara Thomas, and Nina Yankowitz.

“Spring season has officially arrived at the Parrish with a burst of creativity at our next PechaKucha, the East End’s prime talent show,” said Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects. 

After more than two decades as a fashion executive involved with branding, production, and retail, Annette Azan moved into the fields of interior designer and styling six years ago. Through a keen eye for texture and color, combined with an instinctive knowledge of balancing elements, she has been designing dynamic spaces for her clients.

Josh Halsey, born and raised in rural Southampton, is dedicated to exploring community, its connection to agriculture, and the world beneath our feet. Halsey engages his surroundings and draws insight from his experiences to conserve land on the East End. 

Matthew Hartline is a Certified Arborist specializing in the pruning of woody plants. For more than 15 years, he was worked with Bill Miller & Associates, providing care for trees, shrubs, hedges and ornamental vines that grow in the extraordinary gardens on Long Island’s South Fork. 

Robert Hooke is a sculptor in stone and bronze who has exhibited in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and South Africa. His work emphasizes stance, the body position assumed by instinct or purpose, while adhering to the famous quote of Miles Davis: “Creativity is not the notes you put in, but the notes you leave out.”

Tanya Malott, a full time Sag Harbor resident and lifelong photographer, has been capturing images of life from her perspective for over three decades. Her  professional career has include fashion photography, wedding and family portraits around the world, and more recently the travels of Nobel Laureate Malala and others who use their messages and images to create change in the world.

Anne Raymond is a painter and printmaker whose large abstract canvases and monotypes hang in museums as well as private and corporate collections nationwide. The East End has been her home and muse for almost 30 years.

Barbara Thomas, who first came to the East End in the 1960s, has been painting in the area since the early 1980s. She has built a wide following as a plein air landscape painter, as well as garden, landscape, and house portraitist. Thomas teaches painting at the Parrish Art Museum and in New York City. 

Artist Nina Yankowitz has worked with technology to highlight and challenge socio-political content since 1967, when she first exhibited her earliest draped, pleated, and sound imbued painting, Oh Say Can You See, which disputed feminist and civil rights ethical injustices. As a “citizen scientist” for over a decade, Yankowitz infuses interactive technology into her environmental video projection installations to allow viewers to respond to options about climate change conditions.
