PechaKucha is sold out. An in person wait list will begin at 5 pm on Friday, September 16.
As the official site for the Hamptons, we join over 700 cities globally in hosting "PechaKucha Nights," named for the sound of "chit-chat" in Japanese. The format is simple: each invited presenter gets 20 slides x 20 seconds per slide to talk about living creatively on the East End. This is a great opportunity to establish new relationships, learn about local resources, and hear from the many artists, writers, musicians, gardeners, farmers, baymen, winemakers, chefs, designers, architects, and other creative professionals of our region.

- James Katsipis is a Montauk Based Aquatic photographer,and there is nowhere he would rather be then swimming off of the Montauk Point Lighthouse with his camera in the Middle of February after a fresh snow storm the night before. Using Montauk and the people in it as his canvas, James shows what real local living is like year round.
- Sara Mejia Kriendler digs into her childhood past in Brussels, where she witnessed the excavation of Roman ruins. Now, the artist’s work transcends time by taking discardable elements of modern times and trapping them with her sculptural stamping technique that engages viewers to reflect on what they might be leaving behind.
- Tim Roepe is a painter who explores the relationship between abstraction, figuration and the vitality of creating with an existential awareness of nature. He adds stones to the paint which—inspired by Pollock—he then throws onto the canvas.
- Lisa Trivell, a certified exercise and Yoga instructor as well as a licensed massage therapist, has taught yoga for fifteen years in New York City and East Hampton in corporations, schools, and through her private practice. In her PechaKucha presentation, Trivell will speak about the connections among art, nature, and healing.
