Artists' Talk and Brunch at Janet Lehr Sunday

Paintings by Christopher Deeton in a 2014 installation

A brunch and a talk with artists whose work is on view at the Janet Lehr Fine Art gallery in East Hampton will take place on Sunday. 

Christopher Deeton and Haim Mizrahi, who have a show of their abstract paintings at the gallery through June 27, will take part in a panel discussion with Marion Wolberg Weiss, an art and film critic who has led programs for the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, and Raphael Rubinstein, a poet and critic, whose work has appeared in Bomb magazine, among others. Mr. Rubinstein will moderate the conversation about the present state of abstract art.

The brunch, for which R.S.V.P.s with the gallery have been asked, will be served at 11:30 a.m.; the talk will begin at about 12:30 p.m. Seats can be reserved by email, at

Mr. Deeton's paintings have been described as ominous, with totemic, often black-on-white shapes dominating symmetrical compositions. He lives and paints in New York City.

Exuberant colors are found in Mr. Mizhahi's work, whose densely packed abstractions recall those of Jackson Pollock. He lives in East Hampton, having emigrated from Israel in 1983.

The gallery is at 68 Park Place in East Hampton Village, behind BookHampton.
