LongHouse Reserve

 


 

The LongHouse Reserve Summer Benefit Gala Celebrates Southeast Asian Culture and Art

Guests Will Honor American Weaver Carol Cassidy,
 Founder of Lao Textiles

July 18, 2009

 

 
 
 

LongHouse Reserve will host its annual Summer Gala on its 16-acre East Hampton grounds on Saturday, July 18, 2009, honoring internationally-acclaimed silk weaver Carol Cassidy.  More than 350 guests will gather to celebrate “ASIAN LAUGHTER,” a tribute to the joy that Southeast Asian art and culture bring to the world.  Patrons will sample unique culinary delights from Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, while enjoying music performed on traditional Asian instruments.  They also will have the opportunity to view LongHouse’s exquisite grounds and silently bid on art from renowned artists such as Willem de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein and Dale Chihuly.

 

Food will underscore the theme, as patrons gather under an Asian pavilion, designed by renowned outdoor furniture company GANDIA BLASCO, to experience Taste Caterers’ creative Asian fare. Laurent-Perrier Champagne will provide Brut L.P., a crisp, fresh and elegant Champagne, reflecting the fundamental essence of Laurent-Perrier Champagne. Suntory ZEN green tea liqueur and Bacardi spirits will delight the guests, who are encouraged to wear colorful dress, including silks, batik, and ikat.  Vibrant lanterns and banners will celebrate the richness of cultures committed to the spirituality and meaning in art.  

Summer Gala proceeds will support the LongHouse Reserve’s mission to exemplify living with art in all forms – a mission Jack Lenor Larsen, one of the world’s foremost advocates of traditional and contemporary crafts, began in 1991.  Through its arboretum, sculpture gardens, and educational programs, LongHouse unites art and nature, aesthetics and spirit.  It remains strongly committed to a belief that the arts are central to living wholly and creatively.

About Carol Cassidy

Carol Cassidy, who began her career as a United Nations weaving advisor, is today internationally recognized for her commitment to aiding people of developing nations.  Although she has lived and worked with rural artisans in many parts of the world, she has most-notably worked with the people of Vientiane, Laos.  She is credited with reviving the ancient craft of silk weaving in a place challenged by social unrest, economic hardship and war.  Founding Lao Textiles in 1990 and turning the first profit in 1995, Cassidy has restored local pride in weaving and, in doing so, earned recognition for a small, remote land.

 

More recently, she has traveled to Cambodia to lead a weaving workshop established to train amputees who are victims of the thousands of land mines that continue to plague the once war-torn land.  Cassidy has given many physically challenged Cambodians long-term, gainful employment through her project, “Weaves of Cambodia,” making the beautifully colored silks produced particularly meaningful. 

 

Cassidy is an artist and a humanitarian.  Her unique silks -- and her commitment to teaching the art form to others -- brighten the world.

 

About LongHouse Reserve:

Through its gallery, arboretum, sculpture gardens and programs, LongHouse Reserve brings together art and nature, aesthetics and spirit, with a strong conviction that the arts are central to living wholly and creatively. LongHouse Reserve is a not-for-profit museum that encompasses nearly 16 beautiful acres in East Hampton, New York.  Each year the LongHouse Reserve presents major exhibitions in both the pavilion and the gardens. Currently, there are more than 60 sculptures for the gardens including works of glass by Dale Chihuly, ceramics by Takaezu, and bronzes by Barcelo, Voulkos, Benglis and de Kooning. Works by Ossorio, Claus Bury, Yoko Ono, Opocensky, and Takashi Soga are also on view, while the installation of a Fly's Eye Dome designed by Buckminster Fuller and a site-specific Sol Lewitt add interesting scale and dimension.

 

LongHouse Reserve is open to members and to the public from
 2 to 5 p.m.

Wednesdays and Saturdays, from April 25 through October 10 (Columbus Day Weekend)

New Extended Hours: July and August Wednesday through Saturday
