The Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack will hold a memorial service for Robert Dash, Madoo’s founder, on Sunday at 5 p.m. Several of Mr. Dash’s friends will speak, and Barnsley, his Norwich terrier, will lead visitors around the garden, visiting the “hermit’s hut,” the quincunx gardens, the potager, and the “bridge of the bankrupt painter.”
Mr. Dash was a painter and writer whose artwork is in the collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Yale University Art Gallery, among others. The Beineke Library at Yale acquired his archives of poetry, manuscripts, and letters in 2010.
In honor of Mr. Dash, clams and Bloody Marys will be served — “on us,” according to the conservancy.
