Executive chef Jason Weiner’s Bridgehampton restaurant Almond will hold its first Artists & Writers Night of the season on Tuesday, October 13, with artist Tucker Marder serving as host.
Marder, born on the East End, is a Carnegie Mellon graduate student in the Contextual Practice MFA program. Marder’s work has been exhibited at the National Aviary, The Phipps Botanical Garden and under water. He was chosen by Robert Wilson to exhibit his work at the Parrish Art Museum in the show Artists Choose Artists. Marder is also the founder of the Folly Tree Arboretum in Springs, a collection of rare and unusual trees intent on showcasing nature’s sense of humor. It had its first public installation—a conifer petting zoo and puppet theater—at the Hayground School in August of 2014. Most recently, Marder’s piece “Stampede!” premiered as part of the Parrish Road Show. It featured more than 200 live crested Indian runner ducks and three large abstract shape puppets.
Weiner will serve a family style three-course menu.
The dinner begins at 7 p.m. The cost is $45 and includes a glass of local wine or craft beer, tax and gratuity. Reservations are required. Almond is located at 1 Ocean Road, Bridgehampton. Call 631-537-5665 or visit almondrestaurant.com for more information.
