Join Parrish Collection artist and fine art photographer Jeremy Dennis, member of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, for an evening-length program featuring a short documentary and conversation about an artist residency he founded and a postcard workshop to draw attention to the sacred land of the Shinnecock Hills.
In the documentary, Mas House, presented as part of the ALL ARTS ongoing initiative The First Twenty, Dennis discusses the building of Mas House & BIPOC Art Studio, an artist retreat and communal art space on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in Southampton. With the studio, Dennis aims to provide a safe space for free creativity and healing for BIPOC artists. The film explores the challenges he and his family met while renovating his grandmothers house and how he hopes the space will serve the community now and in the future.
During the second part of the evening, visitors are invited to participate in a workshop with the artist designing postcards advocating for a building moratorium in Shinnecock Hills. Dennis will share a brief background about Shinnecock Hills and its significance to the Shinnecock Nation, answer any questions, and show how to create postcards. Materials will be provided.
