Have you ever wondered how an artist gets their sculpture into a public square or a painting commissioned for the mass consumption? How are these choices made and who is making them? LTV Studios in association with “The Mannix Show: Shooting the Sh*t With Cultural Folk” will present Episode 1 “The Art World; and Its Many Sides” on Thursday, June 27, at 7:30 p.m. The panel will feature Karyn Mannix, Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Kathryn Markel, Ned Smyth and Steve Miller.

This panel discussion is not just for artists, it’s for the curious mind. Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door and can be purchased by visiting ltveh.org.

Karyn Mannix, a longtime resident of East Hampton, has worked as a curator, critic, columnist, gallerist, and educator, and eventually opened an art school, which is now closed. Previously owning four brick-and-mortar galleries, she has simplified and settled into a career as a private art dealer, representing artists from around the globe.

Christina Mossaides Strassfield is the executive director of the Southampton Arts Center and leads all aspects of the organization including artistic vision and programming, development and fundraising initiatives and cultivating and maintaining the many partnerships and relationships with museum investors and partners. Previously, she was museum director and chief curator of the Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton. Strassfield led the development of major exhibitions with internationally recognized artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Chuck Close, Eric Fischl, David Salle, April Gornik, Cindy Sherman, Dan Flavin, Taryn Simon, Barbara Kruger, and Richard Prince.

Kathryn Markel began her eponymous gallery in 1976 with the belief that contemporary art can be beautiful as well as visually and intellectually rigorous. For more than 45 years, she has helped collectors find the art that speaks to them, and, therefore, exhibits a diverse group of artists united by hard-won craft, compelling intellectual framework, and a love of the art-making process.

Known for his large-scale public artworks Ned Smyth has been showing his work since 1974. He has had international exhibitions in both museums and galleries, including MOMA, The Hirshorn Museum, Venice Biennale, PS1, Holly Solomon Gallery, Rudolph Zwirner Gallery in Cologne, and Gallery Bischofberger in Zurich. Starting in 2004, he began using his collection of found glacial till stones, as sources for monumental photographs, and bronzes. At the moment, he is showing bronzes and large-scale photos, that derive from his collection of found pieces of stones and wood.

Known for his paintings, which combine aspects of art, science, and technology, Steve Miller has been working with art, science and technology since 1980. He has collaborated with the 2003 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Rod MacKinnon, in a project about human protein, worked at Brookhaven National Labs and at CERN in Geneva where he lectured to the Theory Group. For a decade, Miller developed a photographic project about the Amazon. His work has been presented as solo exhibitions in Paris, Bordeaux, Marseille, Hong Kong, Rio, London, Boston, New York City and, most recently, at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C.

Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door and VIP café seating is $65 at ltveh.org. For details, call 631-537-2777. LTV is at 75 Industrial Road in Wainscott.
