A busy holiday weekend at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will feature a new documentary film on windsurfing, docent-led guided tours, and two new exhibitions from its permanent collection, in addition to family events detailed elsewhere in today's paper.
Jace Panebianco's "Broken Molds," which has been billed as the origin story of windsurfing, begins in 1960s California where Hoyle Schweitzer and his friends Tom Morey, Hobie Alter, and Grubby Clark were surfers who didn't care much about anything else, but would all go on to make products that would change the world.
The film follows the sport's development over generations and the Schweitzer family's efforts to promote it worldwide. The filmmakers had access to never-before-seen material from the family's archive and dramatic footage shot with Red Digital Cinema cameras.
The soundtrack features music by Blondie, Flock of Seagulls, and Guns N' Roses. Tickets to Friday's 6 p.m. screening are $15, $5 for members, students, senior citizens, and children.
The new collection exhibitions are "Pictures Within Pictures," which presents paintings that contain images of other works of art, and "Recent Acquisitions," which features a sculpture by Rachel Feinstein and works by artists who have participated in the museum's Road Show and Platform projects.
Other temporary exhibitions on view are "Virginia Jaramillo: The Harmony Between Line and Space," "John Torreano: Painting Outer Space/Inner Space, 1989 to Present," and "when the hurly burly's done," nine videographs by peter campus.
Parrish docents will lead a guided tour of the exhibitions on Saturday from 2 to 3 p.m.
Indoor events at the museum require all attendees to show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within 72 hours.
