Film: Gray Matters-Film & Panel 
Thursday March 23 @ 6PM

In celebration of Women’s History Month, enjoy a screening of the documentary Gray Matters about architect and designer Eileen Gray, followed by a brief panel discussion featuring local architects.  

Gray Matters explores the long, fascinating life and complicated career of architect and designer Eileen Gray, whose uncompromising vision defined and defied the practice of modernism in decoration, design and architecture. 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 laboured largely in obscurity.

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.

Margaret Garrett is an American artist and dancer whose abstract paintings and videos explore movement, shape, rhythm, and the unfolding of contrapuntal patterns. She is fascinated by patterns—rhythm, movement, line, and the interplay of shapes. Garrett’s approach to painting is strongly influenced by her early training in dance. After dancing again she began filming herself using clips from that footage to create choreographed, collaged videos and prints. It began as a quest to find new shapes for her paintings, but quickly evolved into a rediscovery of her first love, dance, and a way to incorporate that into her art. In making self-portrait pieces she is following in a tradition of women artists who have used photography and video to explore their identity and claim control over their image. As she records herself dancing she is pushing back against the societal norm of invisibility. Garrett’s series 19, is a multi-disciplinary series which works celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment – woman’s right to vote.  As a longtime admirer of Martha Graham, Garrett was immediately captivated by the idea of working with these poses to make work in celebration of the 19th amendment. 


“In creating these pieces, I felt like I was working with a very potent alphabet,

an intimate language about dance, women and power”. 

Garrett’s paintings, prints, and videos have been exhibited in galleries and museums across the United States including Danese/Corey, the Flag Art Foundation, Birnam Wood, and the Parrish Art Museum and Guild Hall Museum. Her work has also been included in the Armory Show, Art on Paper, Dallas Art Fair, and the Baltimore Museum Contemporary Print Fair. She has been awarded residencies at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts and in Assisi, Italy, and has collaborated on two projects with Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas. Garrett’s work is held in numerous private and corporate collections in the United States and Europe. Museum collections include the Parrish Art Museum and Guild Hall Museum. She currently lives and maintains a studio on Shelter Island.



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.
