The Watermill Center hosts its next Artists’ Table Dinner featuring artist Robert Nava and Chef Cali Faulkner on Friday, July 15, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Robert Nava (b. 1985, East Chicago, Indiana) received art degrees from Indiana University and Yale University. His practice centers on large-scale paintings and works on paper that portray whimsical creatures, rendered through gestural markings. Nava is a recipient of the 2022 Inga Maren Otto Fellowship at The Watermill Center.
Cali Faulkner attended culinary school in New York City and began her career in the kitchens of Eleven Madison Park and The Modern. She moved to France, first to Provence, and then to Paris where she worked at Restaurant Verjus. It was there she learned to value and highlight quality and simplicity in her cooking. Upon her return to the U.S., she spent time at Crown Shy and Oxalis. In 2021 she moved to Amagansett to get a bit of sun and embark on Third Falcon, her first independent culinary venture. Third Falcon is a celebration of Faulkner’s personality, experiences, and tastes on the tables of the East end.
Tickets for the Artists’ Table Dinner are $250 to $500 at watermillcenter.org. The Watermill Center is at 39 Watermill Towd Road, Water Mill.
