The Parrish Art Museum will present visual artists discussing their experience of living creatively on the East End at PechaKucha Night Hamptons, Vol. 39, on Friday, June 2, at 6 p.m.

PechaKucha Nights are hosted in over 700 cities globally, and their name originates from the Japanese word for “chit-chat.” Each speaker will show 20 images for 20 seconds in compelling 6-minute and 40-second-long presentations. On June 2, the artists that will be presenting at the Parrish Art Museum, which is the official PechaKucha site for the Hamptons, are: Lautaro Cuttica, Fukoko Harris, Christine Keefe, James McMullan, Isabella Rapp, Ted Thirlby, and Kevin Walz.

Lautaro Cuttica’s work has been included in numerous group and solo shows, international art fairs, and private collections. He has pursued the architectural space in painting, after studying architecture in college.

In shows across the United States, Fukoko Harris’s work has been exhibited in group and two-person shows, while also being featured and reviewed by several publications. In 2018, Harris had her first solo exhibition at Marquee Projects in Bellport, NY.

Christine Keefe is a visual artist whose work includes large oil paintings, photography, printmaking, and more recently, sculpture. Her work has been shown and sold on an international scale.

The creator of over 80 posters for the Lincoln Center Theatre, James McMullan, has made images for magazine covers, books, record covers, U.S. stamps, and murals. His editorial and poster illustrations have been featured by New York Magazine, the Michael Kors Collection, the Hampton Classic Horse Show, and The New York Times Magazine, among others.

For over 23 years, Isabella Rupp has been working with glass and has received numerous awards and honors. This Long Island-based artist has been reviewed by The New York Times and sold out her first solo show in Manhattan.

Ted Thirlby creates works in a variety of mediums, including sculpture on the wall and on the floor, painting, and drawing. From 1978 to the present, he has been shown in group and solo exhibitions in New York and on Eastern Long Island.

Designer and artist Kevin Walz began his career as an emerging artist for several years before “accidentally” becoming an interior designer. He has lectured and taught at the university level, working in both New York and Rome for nearly 20 years.

Tickets are $16 ($5 members, $12 seniors and free for students). The Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway, Water Mill. Advance ticket purchase with preevent registration is recommended
