Surely one of the most anticipated holiday events on the Hamptons social calendar is the annual Parrish Presents. This unique shopping extravaganza offers something for everyone � and every purse. From luxury designer handbags and one-of-a-kind experiences to fabulous thrift shop finds from the major estates of the rich and famous.


Parrish Presents, the Parrish Art Museum�s popular Thanksgiving weekend sale, kicks off with a Preview Cocktail Party for Benefactors, Patrons, Sponsors, and Associates on Friday, November 26, 5 to 8 pm. The General Sale, which is open to the public, will take place Saturday, November 27, from 11 am to 5 pm, and Sunday, November 28, from 11 am to 4 pm. Co-chairs of Parrish Presents are John Bjørnen and
Whitney Fairchild.


Parrish Presents features a Market, Gift Bazaar, and Silent Auction. In addition, a book signing will take place at the preview cocktail party. The Market, which is housed in the Carroll Petrie Center for Education, adjacent to the Museum, consists of new and slightly used items including home furnishings, antiques, jewelry, silver, fine linens, china, fashion accessories, and much more.


Upon entering the Museum, guests will also have the opportunity to view the stunning new exhibition American Still Life: Treasures from the Parrish Art Museum which includes more than forty paintings, sculptures, and works on paper dating from 1871 to the present. American Still Life, the third in a series of exhibitions drawn exclusively from the Museum�s permanent collection, explores the many ways in which generations of American artists have approached the subject of still life painting. The show was organized by Alicia Longwell, Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education. Featured in the show are William Merritt Chase, Jane Freilicher, Fairfield Porter, Robert de Niro, Nell Blaine, Roy Lichtenstein, Joe Zucker, Dan Rizzie, Larry Rivers, Jane Wilson, Sheridan Lord and Donald Sultan.


The exhibition also includes significant works by Barbara Bloom, Warren Brandt, John Button, Nicolai Cikovsky, Michael Combs, George Constant, Peter Dayton, William Glackens, Robert Kulicke, Robert Lazzarini, Li-lan, Sheridan Lord, Henry Muhrman, Casimir Rutkowski, Raphael Soyer, Michelle Stuart, William Aiken Walker and Fred Wilson.


The Gift Bazaar, located in the Museum�s concert hall, will feature a wide range of luxury items from such specialty merchants as Antique Rug Galleria, Artikay Cashmere, The Bruce Murray Collection, LSC Designs Fine & Estate Jewelry, Lynch�s Garden Center, Walker Antiques, and Sacred Sweets.


The Silent Auction will include designer handbags, Broadway packages, fashion show tickets, restaurant gift certificates, and one-of-a-kind trips, to name just of the few offerings. Bidding closes promptly at 3 pm on Sunday, November 28.


One of the most popular highlights is the annual book signing event featuring prominent East End authors. This year�s book signing event will include Duane Hampton (Mark Hampton: An American Decorator) and Alicia Longwell, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education at the Parrish Art Museum (First Impressions: Nineteenth-Century American Master Prints and American Landscapes: Treasures from the Parrish Art Museum). In addition, pre-signed copies of Alexa Hampton: The Language of Interior Design by Alexa Hampton will be available.


The weekend schedule is as follows:

Preview Cocktail Party: Market, Gift Bazaar, Silent Auction, and Book Signing: Open for Benefactors ($1000 per person), Patrons ($500), Sponsors ($250), Associates (Nonmembers $175, Parrish Members $125) Friday, November 26, from 5 to 8 pm.

About the Parrish Art Museum

The Parrish Art Museum is an American art museum located in Southampton, New York. Founded in 1897, the museum celebrates the artistic legacy of Long Island�s East End, one of America�s most vital creative centers. Since the mid 1950s the Museum has grown from a small village art gallery into an important art museum with a collection of more than 2,600 works of art from the nineteenth century to the present. It includes such contemporary painters and sculptors as John Chamberlain, Chuck Close, Eric Fischl, April Gornik, Elizabeth Peyton, as well as such masters as Dan Flavin, Roy Lichtenstein, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, and Willem de Kooning. The Parrish houses among of the world�s most important collections of works by the preeminent American Impressionist William Merritt Chase and by the groundbreaking post-war American realist painter Fairfield Porter. A vital cultural resource serving a diverse audience, the Parrish organizes and presents changing exhibitions and offers a dynamic schedule of creative and engaging public programs including lectures, films, performances, concerts, and studio classes for all ages. On July 19, 2010, the Parrish broke ground on a new building designed by internationally acclaimed architects Herzog & de Meuron. The 34,500-square-foot facility will triple the Museum�s current exhibition space and allow for the simultaneous presentation of loan exhibitions and installations drawn from the permanent collection.
