“Canvas & Cuisine” is the Parrish Art Museum’s premier and inaugural Memorial Day event, fusing art, culture, and gastronomy. Chef Angie Mar, renowned for her innovative culinary creations at Le B., crafted an exclusive menu inspired by her signature definition of “Americana,” exploring the rich tapestry of cultures that define contemporary American cuisine.

This year’s dinner featured an all-female team, reflecting the Museum’s commitment to diversity and women. Chef Angie Mar led the culinary journey, while wine experts Vanessa Conlin from Sotheby’s and Joey Wölffer from Wölffer Estate Vineyard presented a private collection of wines, promising an extra layer of sophistication to the evening.

The décor and table setting were designed by Arthur Golabek of East Hampton.
