Throughout Thanksgiving weekend, the Parrish Art Museum will open a Pop-Up Shop just inside the lobby, with brand new holiday items for the home, unique accessories, artful tabletop items, the debut of the Parrish Honey, and Gift Memberships (starting at $50.00) to the Museum. The Pop-Up Shop, which will be set up in addition to the full Gift Shop at the Museum, will be open November 29–December 1 during regular gallery hours: Friday from 10am – 8pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am – 5pm. Parrish Members receive a 20% discount on all merchandise at the Museum—a discount that will extend to those who purchase memberships for themselves that day. There is no admission fee for visitors to the Shops.
New holiday items at the Pop-Up Shop include fanciful holiday décor items including elegant white snow globes, unique ornaments; artfully wrapped double wick candles and diffusers in holiday scents including Black Forest, Winter Frost, and Peppermint Bark; beautifully packaged soaps and glass dishes in pine, floral, and sugar plum patterns and scents; glazed bamboo salad bowls; and Parrish Honey – the first production from the Museum’s own hives.
The Museum Shop will continue to offer its full inventory of art books and supplies; jewelry and scarves; games, toys, and puzzles; and more. Admission to the Museum galleries is free for Members, Children, and Students; and $12 for Adults, and visitors can enjoy 12,000 sf of gallery space featuring two new special exhibitions. Artists Choose Artists is a juried exhibition celebrating the dynamic relationships among artists across all generations working on the East End. The work of the seven jurors and the14 artists they selected – in total 12 women and 9 men ranging in age from 33-87 – includes painting, photography, prints, sculpture, and video. What We See, How We See features 125 works in a series of seven special exhibitions that juxtapose image-making approaches of artists working in abstraction, figuration, and photorealism from the late 19th century to the present. The exhibition includes a gallery dedicated to tragic-comic world view of Saul Steinberg who lived and worked on the East End for half a decade.
Parrish Art Museum
Inspired by the natural setting an artistic life of Long Island’s East End, the Parrish Art Museum illuminates the creative process and how art and artists transform our experiences and understanding of the world and how we live in it. The Museum fosters connections among individuals, art, and artists through care and interpretation of the collection, presentation of exhibitions, publications, educational initiatives, programs, and artists-in-residence. The Parrish is a center for cultural engagement, an inspiration and destination for the region, the nation, and the world.
