The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will host the 38th iteration of PechaKucha Night Hamptons on Friday at 6 p.m. The popular series invites artists, writers, farmers, chefs, musicians, and other creative people to present rapid-fire summaries of their work in the form of 20 slides, spending no more than 20 seconds on each.
Friday's speakers include Mónica Ramírez-Montagut, the museum's executive director, and an architect; Esperanza Leon, a curator; Doug Block, a photographer and filmmaker; Patricia Pickman Udell, an artist, Denise Gale, a painter, and Victor Miranda, a filmmaker.
Tickets, which include museum admission, are $16, $12 for senior citizens, and free for members and students.
The Watermill Center’s In Process series of free open studios and rehearsals by its resident artists will resume Friday at 5:30 p.m., with presentations of work by Eli Berman and Netta Yerushalmy.
A singer, composer, improviser, and builder of new instruments, Ms. Berman creates electroacoustic music using experimental vocal techniques across a variety of singing traditions, including Yiddish, Appalachian, and Slovak folk music.
Ms. Yerushalmy is a choreographer whose work aims to engage with audiences by imparting the sensation of things as they are perceived, not as they are known, and to challenge how meaning is constructed.
Holiday Tunes, Leone
Valerie diLorenzo, a singer who has been a fixture on the New York cabaret circuit, with appearances in musicals Off Broadway and in regional theaters around the country, will bring her vocal gifts to the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton on Thursday evening at 6:30 for "Auld Lang Syne -- A Holiday Farewell Concert."
Greg Blank, a filmmaker and film historian, will be at the library to talk about Spaghetti Westerns on Monday at 6 p.m. His talk will cover the history and style of the genre, most often associated with the Italian director Sergio Leone, and will include clips from "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly," "Once Upon a Time in the West," and others.
A Christmas Revel
Sarah Conway and the Playful Souls will perform their "Revel in Your Spirits Christmas Show" at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett Friday at 8 p.m. The group, known here for its mix of rock, country, blues, and gospel, will toss a collection of little-known Christmas songs into the mix.
Tickets are $25.
