LongHouse Reserve’s “On Gossamer Wings” benefit will be held on July 18, but the art auction tied to it is already online at the Paddle8 website. This year’s auction features unusual and exceptional works by Ross Bleckner, Kiki Smith, Cindy Sherman, Richard Meier, Christo, Donald Lipski, Takashi Soga, Ross Watts, Jack Youngerman, and many more.
The first thing you notice upon entering “A Walk,” the new exhibition at the Tripoli Gallery in East Hampton, is the white wall-to-wall deep-pile carpeting — not so much how it looks but the way the feet sink into it and the slight resistance it provides — almost an impediment — even as it also soothes.
Orlando Hand Bears’s painting of Ephraim Byram, from 1834, is a life-size portrait of an important figure in Sag Harbor history. Martin Cohen, who once had a gallery on Madison Avenue and shops in Water Mill and Wainscott many years ago, will have it for sale at his booth at Market Art + Design beginning today.
A busy week kicks off at Guild Hall tomorrow with performances by Reserved for Rondee and 2/3 Goat. Both groups incorporate elements of classic rock in their music: the former blending it with contemporary rock to create an indie rock sound, and the latter fusing it with bluegrass and alternative country.
Al Madrigal, who has been the “senior Latino correspondent” for “The Daily Show” since 2011, will bring his unique and fast-paced storytelling to Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Monday at 8 p.m.
