WATER MILL, NY.- The Parrish Art Museum continues Live from the Studio, a new series of free live-stream art workshops, with morning classes on upcoming Wednesdays at 11am featuring two artists whose work is in the Museum’s collection. On April 15, painter Eric Dever will lead a workshop on Methods and Materials of Painting; on April 22, photographer and textile artist Laurie Lambrecht will explore photo-weaving to connect in the time of separation. The classes are open to all participants, adults and families, at any skill level.

"Our first live-stream workshop, with Barbara Thomas, attracted more than 70 enthusiastic participants and many shared their work with us on Instagram,” said Cara Conklin-Wingfield, Parrish Education Director. “Our teaching artists are generously volunteering their time to bring art to the Parrish community, and the response we’ve gotten speaks to the importance of art for all of us now.”

In Methods and Materials of Painting: A Household Cornucopia on April 15, Dever will lead a hands-on studio exploration of painting that embraces unexpected materials and techniques. The workshop includes a brief survey of upcycled painting implements and media that artists adopted during periods of hardship and deprivation due to economic conditions and war. These discoveries led to exciting work that became hallmarks of Modernism—such as Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. A variety of materials is encouraged in Dever’s class, including any kind of paint and implements, and a palette ranging from paper plates to baking sheets. Artists in the Parrish collection referenced for the workshop include Perle Fine, Lee Krasner, Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, and Dan Christensen. More information and materials list can be found at

Laurie Lambrecht was featured last fall as a Parrish Road Show artist, presenting Limn to Limb—a site-specific installation of photography, printmaking, weaving, and knitting at the Madoo Conservancy in Bridgehampton. On April 22, she will lead a photo-weaving workshop from her Bridgehampton studio. The project is designed to connect people through photography by weaving together images exchanged electronically. Materials needed include photographs printed on 8 1/2 x 11 paper, ruler, scissors, and clear tape. For the photographs, Lambrecht suggests that participants have one of their own and one from a friend they can’t be together with at this time.

During the classes, participants are invited to follow along with the artists’ instruction, while interacting through a live chat. For more information on both workshops, and for materials list, visit for more information or to register.)

A Los Angeleno by birth, Eric Dever moved to New York City in 1986. He studied painting, semiotics and critical theory at NYU (MA '88), and in 1989, came to the East End of Long Island to exhibit, and later, to live. Yoga practice and Sanskrit chant became a parallel practice to his painting. Dever worked exclusively with white and black paint for 5 years. The methods and materials of painting itself had been his subject. In 2011, he introduced a new color into the work—red, uncovering a limitless succession of red tints, shades and tones, opening a new path to a larger and more complex body of work which involves, in an exciting sense, mixing proportions of light, energy and matter.

Laurie Lambrecht is an internationally known artist and photographer who studied at Marymount College, the University of Colorado, and the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester. Working for Roy Lichtenstein in the early ‘90s, she produced a remarkable collection of photographs of the artist and his studio. Lambrecht documented the community and ambience that has unfolded over more than a decade at Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center. This project, which started in the mid-1990s, encompasses photographs of dance and music rehearsals, Wilson’s extraordinary chair collection, and his own site-specific sculpture surrounding the Center’s landscape and architecture. During the 1990s Lambrecht worked on a series of portraits of noted artists of the East End. A lifelong Bridgehampton resident, she divides her time between New York City and the East End.
