“Camille Perrottet: Oceans en Péril”

"Camille Perrottet: Oceans en Péril" opens on June 24 and remains on view through July 18, 2016. Hours are 2 to 6 p.m., Friday - Monday. An Opening Reception takes place on June 25 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Camille Perrottet is an East Hampton artist who is known for expressing herself in various visual media: photography, painting, collage, installation and video. Her work always has an experimental bent and offers a message as nuanced as it is provocative. Whether the imagery is abstract or realist, its meaning subtle or overt, she infuses her work with a dreaminess and sharp wit without diluting its sharp questioning and healthy defiance of authority.

Born in France, Camille worked as a freelance photographer in Paris in the 1970’s and arrived in New York City in 1979. She honed her style of art advocacy in the mid-1980s, painting community murals in New York City with Artmakers Inc. Ever since, she has continued championing women’s rights and freedom of expression; more recently she has become an environmental activist, raising awareness of ocean pollution, a cause that hits close to home in the East End of Long Island. Perrottet’s present show, Oceans en Péril, is dedicated to this cause.
