Ille Returns to Line
    After a midwinter absence, Ille Arts in Amagansett will present “Working the Line,” an exhibition devoted to the role of line in composition and style, beginning Saturday with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m.
    Five artists are participating, with two, Denise Gale and Christa Maiwald, serving as curators. Joining them are Michael Chandler, Janet Goleas, and Claire Watson. All of the female artists live on the South Fork. Mr. Chandler is from New York City. The title of the show comes from a restaurant kitchen term, but also applies to the connection between all of the works. The show will remain on view through April 11.

The show will open on Saturday with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. and feature life drawing with Dori Elliot. The art will extend to the food and drink, with creative takes on both by Faunette Arnold. Julian Pascual will perform music. The show will remain on view through March 23.
