4.  Artist Talk at Guild Hall

Guild Hall is hosting a talk with exhibiting artist Joyce Kubat on Saturday, November 16, 2019, at 2 p.m. Kubat is the Top Honors recipient of the 79th Artist Members Exhibition.

"Joyce Kubat: My People," curated by Casey Dalene, presents a body of work that the artist has been developing since 2002. These deeply psychological figurative works are created by applying pastels to damp paper, creating a liquid soft skin with deep velvet pigments, to fluid pink inks that have the extraordinary transparency of flesh.These materials have led her to convey an emotionally raw narrative of human anatomy.

Admission is free but click here to reserve. Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY 11937.
