Hamptons Hot Picks: June 10 & 11


Mary Mattingly’s “WetLand”–a modified houseboat which demonstrates easy-to-do sustainability projects (solar power, rain water collection and purification, vegetable gardening, upcycling, etc.) and the impact of the individual on the environment–has finally arrived in Sag Harbor! Super cool! Visit the vessel Friday through Monday, June 10 through the 23 from noon to 5 p.m. The water-specific installation is on view in connection with the Parrish Art Museum‘s “Radical Seafaring” exhibit. WetLand is  WetLand describes the impact each individual can have on the environment. The vessel is being brought to the East End in conjunction with the exhibition, Radical Seafaring, and will be located on Long Wharf in Sag Harbor. And don’t forget–the Parrish’s annual “Landscape Pleasures” tour kicks off tomorrow, in tribute to Jack deLashmet, whom left us far too early.

Before moving off the tours subject, I wanted to share the link to my photo story on Hamptons Art Hub about this past weekend’s Southampton Historical Museum “Insider View” house tour, which was outstanding as always.



I’m super excited to catch a better glimpse of “The Underpants” tonight at Guild Hall in East Hampton. I was fortunate enough to view a rehearsal tease last week for my preview feature in the Sag Harbor Express. Now I’m going to see the full monty, so to speak.

The Southampton Cultural Center is hosting Classical Collaborations tonight, Friday, June 10, at 7 p.m. Chamber Music Workshop artist-faculty join the exceptional young artist participants to perform movements of chamber music masterworks, and Maestro Patrick Romano conducts The Perlman Music Program Chorus. A “Meet the Artists” reception will follow the performance. Tomorrow night, the “Winner’s Circle” exhibit opens with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m.
Feel like living forever and learning to fly high? You’re in luck! The Ross School is staging “Fame” tonight and tomorrow, June 10 and 11.


Lastly, for now, The Watermill Center has a whole weekend of activities planned, starting with a guided tour on Saturday, June 11 at 1 p.m., followed by the exhibition opening of Inga Maren Otto Fellow G.T. Pellizzi‘s Constellation in Red, Yellow and Blue, a monumental installation of light sculptures created for The Watermill Center. The day concludes at 4 p.m. with the  BOTCH ensemble, which will present its work oyster in an open rehearsal. On Sunday, June 12, it’s the final installment of the Watermill Center’s spring International Brunch Series with current resident artists Joe Diebes, Mary Mattingly, Rashaun Mitchell, G.T. Pellizzi, and Silas Riener. Prepared by Watermill’s Chef-in-Residence Eva Schmidt, the menu is inspired by the local food culture of Long Island’s East End. Space is limited and reservations are required. Following brunch, at 3 p.m., dance artists Silas Riener and Rashaun Mitchellwill present their piece Tesseract in an open rehearsal.
