The Watermill Center’s “Light + Air” on Saturday, December 16, is a new experience that celebrates the connection between TWC’s international artists-in-residence, members and the global community. The evening will feature workshops, performance, a private art sale and the first-ever dinner event in The Residence. Designed by Roger Ferris and opened in 2020, The Residence is home to The Watermill Center’s year-round artists-in-residence and is typically closed to the public.
“Light + Air” is open to all ages from 3 to 6 p.m. and will feature a movement workshop with Ogemdi Ude, a painting workshop inspired by the works of James Ulmer, a private art sale featuring works by Robert Wilson and past artists-in-residence, among other special objects, in time for the holiday season. The event will also feature a performance, DJ and refreshments including hot coco and wine around a bonfire.
Dinner in The Residence beginning at 6:30 p.m. is for age 21+ and will feature Chef Jason Weiner from Almond Restaurant. Space is limited.
Ticket holders will be treated to a special gift from The Watermill Center — a complimentary 2024 Annual Membership. “Light + Air” coincides with the relaunch of The Watermill Center’s exclusive membership program, which grants members special access to private events and artists-in-residence throughout the year. First introduced in 2015, it will now feature access to members-only events, exhibitions, curated creative content and more.
The Watermill Center is at 39 Water Mill Towd Road in Water Mill. For more information, visit watermillcenter.org or call 631-726-4628.
