From 7 to 11 p.m. tomorrow, Neoteric Fine Art in Amagansett will present two events. First up is the “Neoteric Symposium,” a show-and-tell of multiple presentations by local people on a variety of topics. Based on the popular PechaKucha format (lately at the Parrish Art Museum), the symposium aims to provide a forum for ideas and introduce the people behind them. A listing of presenters is available on the gallery’s Web site.
