INSIGHT SUNDAYS ARE BACK IN 2023
WITH ARTIST ALMOND ZIGMUND
SUNDAY, JANUARY 29TH | 10:30 AM
The Church Members: FREE, Advance Ticket Required
Sag Harbor — Join us for the first Insight Sunday of 2023 with renowned artist Almond Zigmund! Zigmund kicks off the Spring season of our popular series that provides an in-depth look at the process, techniques, and concepts of art, straight from the maker’s point of view. Insight Sundays will now be held the last Sunday of each month and are free to members. Also new for this year, we are pleased to hold advance viewings of the artist’s work. Drop by the Church to preview two new works by Zigmund, which will be on view from January 6th through the 29th. Enjoy your Sunday morning on January 29th with the vibrant and colorful works and the artist’s talk.
Originally from Brooklyn, Zigmund received a BFA from Parsons School of Design in New York and Paris and an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she studied art theory and criticism with the MacArthur Award-winning critic Dave Hickey. Zigmund makes large-scale site-responsive installations, discrete sculptures, works on paper, and paintings. Combining crisp geometry, vivid color, and intricate patterns, Zigmund’s sculptures and installations often suggest walls, barricades, enclosures, and other aspects of the built environment. The architectonic works engage the eye and the body at once, offering generous amounts of visual stimulation while also inducing visceral reactions to the virtual and actual spaces.
Insight Sundays are the ultimate behind-the-scenes sneak peek into an artist’s mind. Join us for a fantastic opportunity to hear Almond Zigmund focus on her two works, see them through her eyes, and explore how it relates to her career and process.
New York artist Almond Zigmund works to intensify the perception of the viewer in unexpected ways, juxtaposing form, color, pattern, texture, and architectural design in striking contrasts. She received a BFA from Parsons School of Design, in New York and Paris and an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she studied under award winning critic Dave Hickey. Zigmund’s work has been widely exhibited and is held in public and private collections, including The New Museum, The Parrish Art Museum, The Marjorie Barrack Museum, Sprint/Nextel Collection, and the Pizzuti Collection. She has completed 2 public commissions for the NYC Dept of Transportation, and large-scale murals at the The Whitman Walker Health Center in Washington DC, Guild Hall in East Hampton, NY, the University of Laverne in Los Angeles and at One Financial Plaza as part of the Brookfield Arts program. She most recently completed a commission for a public sculpture with the US State Department Art in Embassies Program in Paraguay. Photo by Jamie Lopez
The Church was established in 2019 by artists Eric Fischl and April Gornik. Housed in a deconsecrated 19th-century church, its doors were opened in April 2021. Our mission is to foster creativity and to honor the living history of Sag Harbor as a maker village. The East End represents an exceptional artistic legacy, spanning the practices of indigenous art of several centuries ago, Abstract Expressionists of the mid-20th Century, and the many celebrated writers, makers, musicians, and visual artists of the recent past and current moment. Core programming includes visual art exhibitions, concerts and events, educational programming, workshops, lectures, and an artist’s residency.
