In celebration of Women’s History Month, join us March 23rd @ 6PM for a screening of the documentary Gray Matters about architect and designer Eileen Gray, followed by a brief panel discussion featuring local architects. Making a reputation with her traditional lacquer work in the first decade of the 20th century, she became a critically acclaimed and sought after designer and decorator in the next before reinventing herself as an architect, a field in which she labored largely in obscurity. Apart from the accolades that greeted her first building persistently and perversely credited to her mentor–her pioneering work was done quietly, privately and to her own specifications.  But she lived long enough (98) to be re-discovered and acclaimed. Today, with her work commanding extraordinary prices and attention, her legacy, like its creator, remains elusive, contested and compelling.

Reflection panel led by AIA Peconic President Lori K. Beppu, AIA who will be joined by AIA architect members Pamela J. Glazer, AIA and Viola G. Rouhani, AIA.

Co-presented by Southampton Arts Center and AIA Peconic, a chapter of The American Institute of Architects. Proudly sponsored by Pella. Licensed architects are eligible for two learning units for attending this program.



Join Southampton Arts Center and Hamptons Jazz Fest on March 25as we present Will Bernard Quartet for an evening of jazz! The concert will begin at 7 PM.

Guitarist Will Bernard, a Berkeley, CA native and Brooklyn NY transplant studied guitar and piano from an early age with Dave Creamer, Art Lande and Julian White later developing an interest in classical music composition. He received a degree in music from UC Berkeley where he studied with Andrew Imbrie and others.

He began playing and recording on an international level as a member of Peter Apfelbaum’s Hieroglyphics Ensemble, who made their recorded debut with Don Cherry on “Multikulti” (A&M 1989). Since then, Bernard has participated in a host of boundary stretching groups, ranging from jazz, hip-hop and world music to experimental music, with many stops in between. In the 90’s Bernard recorded and performed with many projects under the direction of acclaimed producer Lee Townsend and worked with groups ranging from the Hindustani-influenced Jai Uttal to the political hip-hop group the Coup. The most commercially successful of these projects was the group T.J. Kirk (with Charlie Hunter) whose sophomore album “If Four Was One” on Warner bros. was nominated for a Grammy in 1997. Will made further inroads with the Stanton Moore trio which toured extensively and made three albums on Telarc and a Hal Leonard drum instructional video and book.


Mary Lambert, a filmmaker notorious for her groundbreaking work in music videos and one of the most prolific female horror directors of the past 30 years, was born in Arkansas and was drawn to art and creativity from an early age wanting to be a painter. She didn’t grow up around artists but was influenced by the culture of storytelling in the South. The ideas of fractured narratives, non-linearity, and multiple interpretations are a familiar presence in her work. Her outrageous imagery and nonlinear storytelling became her trademarks. The visual landscapes that were naturally hallucinogenic and dreamy landscapes can also be felt in her painting work as well. 

Mary Lambert is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design where she studied fine art. At RISD she learned a there that being an artist was not limited to being a painter, it was a state of mind, a creative lifestyle that you chose and that anything you did could be art. As an artist, you could influence other people and have a voice in the world.

While living in Los Angeles and working on the fringes of the film industry in editing and animation, making special effects for washing machine commercials, she made a music video for their band The Tom Tom Club which they showed to Jeff Ayeroff of Warner Bros. Records. Lambert’s follow-up with Jeff earned her a ticket to New York to meet their hot new up-and-coming artist, Madonna. Lambert shot her first music video for Borderline, and the rest is history.

Mary didn’t set out to brand herself as a horror director. Her first feature was cult classic Siesta (1987), which received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best First Feature after its release. Lambert perhaps is best known for directing Stephen King’s first adaptation of his own work, Pet Sematary, the huge box office success of which inspired a sequel, Pet Sematary II, three years later. Now a prolific television director, and the first woman to direct a Syfy Channel original movie, Lambert has consistently tapped into her own interior mindscape to manifest deeply emotional genre fables. 

Mary is an Assistant Arts Professor at Tisch School of the Arts, Undergraduate Department of Film and Television where she has served as the Area Head of Acting and Directing. She teaches a range of production and craft classes at NYU including Advanced Production Workshop, Narrative Workshop, Sight and Sound Filmmaking, Sight and Sound Studio, and Directing the Camera. She has also taught film and directing classes at AFI, USC, and Chapman University.
