A Talk and New Classes

James Casebere, an American artist whose photographs are on view in the exhibition “Image Building: How Photography Transforms Architecture” at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, will discuss his work with Terrie Sultan, the museum’s director, tomorrow at 6 p.m. as part of the series “Inter-Sections: The Architect in Conversation.”

For the past 30 years, Mr. Casebere has constructed table-sized interiors and exteriors, based on architectural, art historical, and cinematic sources, which he photographs in his studio. For example, a 2017 exhibition at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York City, “Emotional Architecture,” featured scale-model re-creations of designs by Luis Barragan, a Mexican architect.

Tickets are $12, free for students and members, and include museum admission.

To provide a convenient weekend schedule of art classes for adults, the Parrish has announced two new art-making opportunities on Saturdays. Beginning this week, from 1 to 3 p.m., Eric Dever, a Parrish collection artist, will lead an open studio inspired by that collection and the current exhibition on the first Saturday of each month. 

Beginning on June 9, Mary O’Malley will lead Sculpting Nature, a three-session workshop on consecutive Saturdays from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Participants will be shown basic to intermediate slip-casting and mold-making techniques. All skill levels will be welcomed, and materials will be provided. The fee is $190, $155 for members. Registration is at parrishart.org.
