"Unfinished Business"

August 7 - October 16, 2016

"Unfinished Business: Paintings from the 1970s and 1980s by Ross Bleckner, Eric Fischl, and David Salle" explores the distinct styles, philosophies and convictions of the three painters. The exhibition presents 23 large-scale canvases and 17 works on paper, outlining the development of each painter’s formal vocabulary while suggesting deep connections between and among the works of all three which stretches back to the early 1970s, according to the museum.

Bleckner, Fischl and Salle met in the early 1970s at the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles with all three moving to New York City in the 1980s, each establishing careers as influential painters despite the persistent call that painting was dead. Ross Bleckner, Eric Fischl and David Salle discovered, in both materials and conventions, a medium rife with possibilities and one particularly appealing for artists interested in doing something original, and ambitious, with its history.
"Unfinished Business" explores their separate journeys while providing a continuum of painting through three contemporary artists with ties to The Hamptons. The show opens on August 7 and continues through October 16, 2016. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition. The Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Hwy, Water Mill, NY 11976. www.parrishart.org.

Parrish Road Show

The Parrish Road Show offers the opportunity for invited artists to make site-specific work at locations outside of the Parrish's brick and mortar location. Launched in 2012 while the museum was in transition from its former Southampton home on Jobs Lane to its new digs in Water Mill, the Parrish Road Show has proved to be a popular exhibition series with the added layer of placing museum programming amid the East End of Long Island community.

The Parrish Road Show is designed to connect creativity to everyday life by presenting exhibitions and programs across the East End. Invited artists typically pull deep within the Hamptons art community and also reveal artists who are actively making work on Eastern Long Island. The 2016 edition features installations by Bastienne Schmidt and Toni Ross.

"Bastienne Schmidt: Archeology of Time"

August 7 to 24, 2016

Bastienne Schmidt is interested in the documentation and creation of artifacts that carry the patina of memory, history, and time. For her installation at the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum, Bastienne Schmidt combed the Whaling Museum's collection for functional objects with lattices or grids – such as nets, strings, and hardtack – and reinterpreted them through translucent paper works that incorporate threads, fabric and natural elements.

The Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum is located at 200 Main Street, Sag Harbor, New York, 11963. An Opening Reception takes place on Sunday, August 7, 2016 from 5 to 7 p.m. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by clicking here.

"Toni Ross: Permanent Transcience"

August 20 to September 5, 2016

Toni Ross is intrigued by the intersection of diverse objects and materials, especially those that defy logic. For her Parrish Road Show at Marder's in Bridgehampton, Toni Ross takes her work to a scale not previously seen. Ross's installation is a juxtaposition of materials where sculpted straw bales intersect and envelop three massive boulders, creating an interplay of opposites.

Marder's is located at 120 Snake Hollow Road, Bridgehampton, NY 11932. An Opening Reception takes place on Saturday, August 20, 2016 from 5 to 7 p.m. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by clicking here. A Meet the Artist event takes place on Sunday, August 21, 2016 at 11 a.m. Space is limited. For reservations, click here.
