In Process @ the Watermill Center, which provides an opportunity for interaction between the center’s resident artists and the public through open rehearsals, studio visits, and artist talks, will feature presentations by three current residents on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. A tour of the center’s facilities and grounds will be offered between 1 and 2.

Ville Andersson, who lives in Helsinki, Finland, works in different mediums and styles. His series include photographs, drawings, paintings, installations, and texts that engage contemporary issues as well as the history of art. Among his recent projects are stamps for the Finnish postal service, tableware for the design company Arabia, and set and costume design for the play “Lungs.”

When Saskia Friedrich moved to New York City from Germany as a teenager, she immersed herself in the study of dance, acting, and the music and club scene, and she attended the School of Visual Arts. Now based in Sagaponack, she works with solid colored fabric she cuts and arranges in abstract compositions. In 2015 she created two large-scale pieces using fabric and other materials that were installed at the Art Barge on Napeague as part of the Parrish Art Museum’s Road Show exhibition.

Lauren DiGiulio is an art historian and dramaturge whose scholarship focuses on contemporary dance and performance. A doctoral candidate in visual and cultural studies at the University of Rochester, she was associate artistic producer of “The Sundance Kid Is Beautiful With Christopher Knowles,” which was presented at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania as part of a retrospective of Knowles’s work, and she contributed program notes for the 2012-2015 tour of Robert Wilson and Philip Glass’s “Einstein on the Beach.”

Reservations for In Process and for the Watermill Center tour are free but required and can be made at the center’s website.
