  • This year, LongHouse’s arts committee has made some bold and dramatic selections well suited for the unique environment.
  • The story of Scott Hamilton Kennedy and John McCaffrey is a tale of connections and coincidences, all born of two Wainscott households, one on each side of a line that separates the Georgica Association from the rest of the hamlet.
  • It is clear early on in the Guild Hall exhibition “Connie Fox and William King: An Artist Couple” that there is fun to be had there. A sense of play and the absurd is introduced from the very beginning both by the artists and the exhibition’s curator, Gail Levin.
  • From time to time, it is worth considering the world outside our own little bubble. Fairfield Porter, an artist with whom South Fork visual art enthusiasts are well acquainted, is such an example.
  • True crime stories continue to fascinate the American public, whether in podcasts like “Serial” and “In the Dark” or on television, where shows such as “Unsolved Mysteries” are staples. This week the focus is on Long Island, with the release of two series that take the Long Island Serial Killer case as a launching point.
  • Dilapidated buildings on urban streets, flora overtaking abandoned gas pumps on a country lane, the evanescence of a hazy Venice sunset. At Ashawagh Hall, the eyes moved from theme to theme and from subject to subject, witness to how another set of eyes saw the world and committed it to paper and canvas.
  • Exactly one week before Halloween, two artists decided to offer their own trick and treats at a small beachfront cottage in Bridgehampton destined to face the wrecking ball.
  • Since opening this spring, Art Space 98, at the upper end of Newtown Lane in East Hampton, has presented an eclectic group of artists. The owners, Rosemarie Schiller and Tho­mas Buhler, began by showing their own work, then followed with Camille Perrottet’s photography, video, and installation work and Michael Oruch’s geometric abstractions.
  • The three-person show at Amagansett’s Ille Arts Gallery has a unifying theme in landscape painting, but the path each artist follows in addressing it diverges wildly.
  • An examination of the work of Connie Fox and William King will lead a slate of new exhibitions opening at Guild Hall on Sunday with a special reception from 3 to 5 p.m. Serving as guest curator for “Connie Fox and William King: An Artist Couple” is Gail Levin, a professor of art history at the City University of New York, author of many books and monographs on artists, and a contributor to The East Hampton Star. She is also the author of the exhibition catalog essay and will interview Ms. Fox preceding the reception at 2 p.m.
