EXHIBITIONS ON VIEW
2020 STUDENT EXHIBITION
March 7, 2020–April 19, 2020
The annual Student Exhibition, a 60-year tradition at the Parrish, features the work of more than 1,000 young artists from schools on Eastern Long Island. Working with their art teachers and through art clubs, the students demonstrate creativity, enthusiasm, and technical skill in diverse media, ranging from painting to sculpture, drawing and photography.
What We See, How We See
Each year, the Museum creates a new exhibition that contextualizes works and amplifies themes by important artists drawn from the Parrish’s permanent collection of more than 3,000 works. This year’s seven-gallery installation, What We See, How We See, features paintings and works on paper by a wide range of artists, including a major gift from the Saul Steinberg Foundation that encompasses the varied projects, such as wallpaper and fabric, by this prolific artist who lived and worked in Springs for some 50 years; boldly colored paintings and prints by Tom Slaughter (1955–2014); American Landscapes from the 19th and early 20th centuries, highlights from the Parrish’s renowned holdings; and Circles, Squares, and Squiggles, works that encourage viewers to take a closer look by artist Josef Albers, Dan Christensen, and Jack Youngerman, among many others.
MAYA LIN: BAY, POND, & HARBOR (LONG ISLAND TRIPTYCH)
On Long Island, you’re surrounded by water on both sides; you’ve got the bay coming up separating the North and the South Forks. I am extremely interested in the water’s edge, and thinking about sea level and understanding how transmutable and temporal that boundary between land and sea actually is.
