COMMUNITY At Project MOST Gallery


Artwork by Evan Sebastian Lagache.

By Jessica Mackin

Project MOST Galler y in East Hampton presents “COMMUNITY,” an exhibition of new works by Nathan Slate Joseph, Anne Elisabeth Kiær, Evan Sebastian Lagache, HUSH, Martine Langatta, and Nicole Nadeau, on view through September 28. The show is curated by Julie Keyes and Pamela Willoughby. The public is invited to join for opening night, which includes a meet the artists reception, and special guests throughout the coming weeks. The show opens on Saturday with a reception from 5 to 7 PM. Guests will be able to meet the artists Nathan Slate Joseph and Evan Sebastian Lagache. Lagache, an American abstract expressionist artist, is a half-French, native New Yorker by way of Florida. Lagache comes from complicated lineage, but on his father’s side, he is the grandson of famed French conductor Michel Plasson. On his mother’s side, he’s the son of supermodel Debbie Dickinson and the nephew of Janice Dickinson. Nathan Slate Joseph, from New York City and Sagaponack, explores the painterly possibilities of steel in a body of work that fuses visceral sculpture with a nuanced palette of inorganic pigments. Joseph began to experiment with cast-off metal in the 1970s. His best-known works consist of squares of galvanized steel -- cut from industrial scraps -- which he coats in vibrant, saturated hues and then treats in acid. Joseph will be previewing his short film in the space starting at 4 PM on Saturday. The gallery space, next door to Mary’s Marvelous, has been evolving

all summer. Throughout the season the children’s exhibit that tells the Project MOST story was integrated with an exhibit of world-renowned artists that worked with the Project MOST children all summer, making art. In COMMUNITY, the space turns itself over to professional artists. The show brings together an eclectic group bound by a theme of social harmony and balance. Hush, from London, is an artist shaped by his lifestyle. Drawing on the elements of popular culture that shaped his past, he channels his history into visual art. His pieces are pastiches of youth culture, with elements graffiti, hip-hop, punk, rave, and minimalist design all existing with a single canvas. His compositions are nearly overwhelming, but the beautiful girls that recur in his works provide calm, stopping the images from descending into chaos. Artist Nicole Nadeau, from New York City, is known for working with materials that are often overlooked and taken for granted. As a fourth generation craftsman, trained in industrial design, her work blends manufactured and natural materials to create uncanny installations and sculptures. “I am making my latest work in a way that is joyfully incorporating flat color and multi-dimensional structure into sculptural paintings that have humor and a sense of real tactile surface that plays with light and shadows,” said New York City and Montauk based artist Martine Langatta. Her interests in creating her work build on the traditions of abstract expressionism and minimalism while

paying homage, yet playfully carving a path of her own. Artist Anne Elisabeth Kiær, from Norway and New York City, strives to get colors, lines, and forms to balance each other and give the viewer a visual harmony. “I love seeing a hint of a color beneath another,” said Kiær. “Covering up and exposing can go on through indefinite layers.” The show will also include three weekends of Artist Talks. On Sunday, there will be an Artist Talk brunch from noon to 4 PM with

photographer Tara Israel, presenting “The Baymen of L.I. & Hank Williams III.” Edwina Von Gal and a special surprise guest will be at the gallery on September 17, from 4 to 6 PM. Nadeau and Langatta with special guests will be there on September 24 and 25. A portion of the proceeds from COMMUNITY will be donated to Project MOST, an organization serving the East Hampton community, that raises funds for the Springs Seedlings and Project MOST After School programs.

ARIES (3/20 - 4/20) Circumstances you thought were secure may become confusing this week. It might be time to evaluate any negative behaviors or habits with the desire of letting them go. Would not be a bad idea to schedule a physical or a dentist visit. TAURUS (4/20 - 5/21) Questioning the direction your life is headed to? Some of you will have the opportunity to join new groups or organizations. Others will consider making a serious love commitment or even adding a new member to the family.

This will make you see your world in a whole new way and you may find that you like it. Take time to pamper yourself if you start to feel frazzled. SCORPIO (10/22 - 11/22) Your desire to escape from the usual friends and associates may surface this week.

CAPRICORN (12/21 - 1/20) Going back to school to pick up that degree or even to take a class that teaches you a new skill will do you a world of wonders. You will meet likeminded people while fulfilling a long held dream. There is also the lure of a long distance trip.

CANCER (6/22 - 7/22) You may hear from or about an old friend, which sets you off on a trip down memory lane. Busy activity around the neighborhood and within the family may make it hard to stick to a strict routine. Go with the flow. Fix any problem with your car.

AQUARIUS (1/20 - 2/19) It’s a good time to get your important papers in order and clear out those old magazines, etc. Lots of activity around children and extended family can keep you hopping. You might hear some juicy gossip about a friend or colleague.

LEO (7/22 - 8/22) You will be looking at money and finances in a new way. Where can you be more efficient? Is there some way to turn that hobby or talent into extra cash? Getting the children off to school, or communication with older children will take up your time.

PISCES (2/19 - 3/20) Partnerships and contracts of all types will be under your scrutiny this week. You want to make changes around what doesn’t make you happy.
