The work of four East End artists — Laura Fayer, Anna Lise Jensen, Paton Miller and Zelie Rellim — is on view in “Personal Infra-Structure” an exhibition currently running at Southampton Cultural Center. The show, which opened in early April, ends with a closing event — a DIY banquet – this Saturday, April 27, from 5 to 9 p.m.

This exhibition explores various kinds of both literal and imaginary infrastructures through the lenses of four artists who crossed paths in Southampton. The show came about through Anna Lise Jensen’s talks with North Fork architect Glynis Berry, on Berry’s community work on wastewater in Suffolk County. The artist integrated text from two interviews with Berry (in 2012 and 2024) with her photographs.

Laura Fayer’s work reveals the relationship between early memories and inspiration by juxtaposing her paintings with photographs of her early years of living in Japan and her father’s photos as a soldier in South Korea during the Cold War.

Paton Miller constructs paintings that are equally based on actual sites he visited and his imagination, and his paintings on bee-box frames are from the garden he shares with his beekeeper wife.

Zelie Rellim’s work consists of sewing together scraps discarded by both family and strangers, and her recycling of materials results in maps of the overlooked and possibilities.

At the exhibition’s closing DIY banquet on Saturday, April 27, all are welcome to bring their own food and drinks to SCC, as well as objects and stories to share with fellow participants. Southampton Cultural Center is at 25 Pond Lane in Southampton. For details, visit scc-arts.org.
