At Home with Terrie Sultan

“When I was in the Peace Corps in Apia, Western Samoa in 1977, I discovered ‘At Play in the Fields of the Lord’ at the local library and have read it at least five times,” she said. “I also like the Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov, who wrote ‘The Master and Margarita.’”

As for hobbies, Ms. Sultan plays the flute “for fun only,” while Mr. French gardens and is the cook in the family.

“I have a black thumb in both the garden and the kitchen, so I’m very lucky because my husband even loves to shop for groceries,” she said. “In fact, the first thing Christopher did when we moved here was establish his own garden. We have five different kinds of lettuce, radishes, lima beans, green beans, peas, fennel, leeks, broccoli, and some herbs and spices.”

Herself planted—and thriving—on the East End for three months now, Ms. Sultan said she is “probably working harder than she’s ever worked in her life,” but also having a lot of fun “feeling like an ambassador for the Parrish and meeting supportive, welcoming people who are excited about the future of the museum.”

“I’m very motivated to hurry up with the fund-raising effort to get the new building built so we can get back to the real business of art,” she said.

As for her long-term housing goal, she joked that perhaps Herzog & de Meuron could design a dream home for her and Mr. French one day.
