Watermill Brunch
The Artists' Table brunch series will return to the Watermill Center on Saturday from noon to 2:30. The series showcases resident artists with a meal made by a rotating roster of regional chefs. Saturday will feature a presentation by Matthew Leifheit, a 2023 artist in residence, and a locally sourced meal created by Colin Ambrose, the chef and owner of Estia's Little Kitchen in Sag Harbor.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, sourcing products from local farmers and fishermen who are Mr. Ambrose's friends. Spurred by his interest in cooking and gardening, in 1992 he became a member of Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, Long Island's first community supported agriculture venture, and he has developed a garden behind the restaurant.

Mr. Leifheit will show excerpts from a new video and sound installation titled "The Gay Chorus." Drawn from the collections of L.G.B.T.Q. community centers across the country, the project is an expanding archive that preserves deteriorating VHS recordings of gay men's chorus performances between 1985 and 1995.

Tickets are $125.

The event will include a conversation between Ms. Bryant and Ms. Golden, drinks, small bites, and a silent auction.

Tickets start at $50.

The class will feature a tasting of six wines from unique terroirs from around the world. Wines will be paired with bites provided by the Cookery in East Hampton.

Tickets are $45 and nonrefundable. Ticket buyers unable to attend have been asked to notify the shop so it can offer the spot to someone else.
