June 3, 6 pm - 7 pm

TICKETS  LIVESTREAM

Meet the many creatives who call the East End their home at our high-energy PechaKucha Nights. Artists, writers, musicians, gardeners, farmers, baymen, winemakers, chefs, designers, and architects present their work and passions in just under 7 minutes as they use a simple format of 20 images x 20 seconds per image.

As the official site for the Hamptons, the Parrish joins over 700 cities globally in hosting PechaKucha Nights, named for the sound of “chit-chat” in Japanese. This is a great opportunity to establish new relationships, learn about local resources, and hear from your neighbors.

 

John Melillo, Eastport

John Melillo grew up on the east end of Long Island and is an avid fisherman. He is a disabled Vietnam Veteran who finds solace through contemporary realistic oil painting of his heritage. His art is geared to detail and storytelling through realistic presentation, enabling the viewer to create their own narrative. Melillo started his career by taking numerous classes at the Art League of LI, Suffolk County Community College, the School of Visual Arts, NY Academy of Art and the Metropolitan Museum. He has business certificates from Christies and Sotheby’s and has been featured in many articles & TV appearances.

 

Camille Perrottet, East Hampton

Camille Perrottet is a multi-disciplinary artist, working in photography, mural, painting, video and installation. Born in France and raised in Paris, Perrottet moved to New York City in 1979 and has been based in East Hampton since 1993. Perrottet’s work has been influenced by the geographic locations she lived in, the artistic communities she was in relationship with, new art mediums she experimented with, and the socio-political issues of the time, surrounding the themes of women, sexuality, and politics.

 

Brianna L. Hernández, Southampton

Brianna L. Hernández is a Chicana artist, curator, educator, and death doula guided by socially engaged practices. In developing as an artist and creative professional Hernández credits her late mother, Sylvia D. Hernández, as her most significant mentor and inspiration for the creativity, resilience, and compassion she demonstrated throughout her life. Her ongoing artwork focuses on the experience of providing end-of-life care, grieving processes, and mourning rituals based on her lived experiences, cultural research, and collaborations with others in the field.

 

Denise Silva-Dennis, Shinnecock

Denise Silva Dennis, 1960, whose Indigenous name is WeeTahMoe, is a member of the Shinnecock Nation, Southampton, NY and Hassanamisco Nation, Grafton, Massachusetts. Silva-Dennis is a multi-disciplinary artist, a social justice activist, a public speaker, and a retired Southampton Elementary School Art Teacher. WeeTahMoe is also an accomplished beadwork craftswoman. The traditional Eastern Woodland style of beadwork was handed down to her from the elder women of the Shinnecock and Hassanamisco Nipmuc Nation, whose work includes traditional jewelry, beaded walking sticks, beaded pouches and beaded cradleboards.

 

Ted Nemeth

Ted Nemeth, currently enthralled with the challenges of his 5th professional career: a gypsy with a camera, previously worked on Wall Street for several years, as well as two technology start-ups. Moving beyond those endeavors, Nemeth worked with developmentally disabled adults for several years, and became a renowned leather craftsman with celebrity clients and private projects around the world for 11 years before picking up a camera. As a third-generation filmmaker, Nemeth started his production company, Currently Filming Optimism, travelling the world creating videos for artists and charities to help drive awareness & donations.

 

Sarah Alford

Sarah Alford is a writer, photographer and software designer. Her work has appeared in East, The East Hampton Star and the Sag Harbor Express magazine. Alford’s interest in horticulture extends to the animal world, and she revels in using photography to capture easily unseen moments in nature. Alford is especially inspired by the microcosms of native host trees and plants which have a unique relationship with the creatures they support.   

 

Mark Seidenfeld

Mark Seidenfeld lives and works in Bridgehampton, New York. Seidenfeld was academically trained as a lawyer. He represented many galleries around the world and hovered around art until 1992 when Elisa Breton, the widow of Andre Breton, convinced him to start painting. Once begun, that activity unleashed a volcano of creativity. Seidenfeld’s artistic mission is to create and cultivate his own unique visual language. Using an intuitive mind guided by the inspiration emotions, he aims to take artistic journeys into the unknown in the process of making artworks. Both his photography and painting have won awards and have been subject to articles in various art publications as well as exhibitions and representation in New York galleries.
