The Salon

This season’s underwriters of The Salon are Jonathan and Lizzie Tisch.
The Salon is one of the highlights of the summer season at Jewish Center of the Hamptons. Each week, influential and noteworthy speakers from around the country will join us for a casual and informative forum. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage with the speakers as they share personal anecdotes from their lives.

The Salon: Terrie Sultan & Ross Bleckner
The Nexus of Art and Emotion
Terrie Sultan is an art historian and the director of the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill. She has organized more than 40 exhibitions in her career, including Chantal Akerman: Moving through Time and Space, and Jessica Stockholder: Kissing the Wall, and Chuck Close Prints: Process and Collaboration. Artist, Ross Bleckner, is easily one of the most acclaimed painters of his generation. Perhaps best known for his paintings dealing with loss and memory, Bleckner notably tackled the emotional toll brought by the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. His work can be found in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others.
