  • This year, LongHouse’s arts committee has made some bold and dramatic selections well suited for the unique environment.
  • 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.
  • Paintings by Peter Lipman-Wulf, currently on view at the Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor, beckon from the sidewalk in a pleasant way. Two of his watercolors on paper, casually tacked on boards, have been placed on easels in the storefront windows. The presentation is charmingly reminiscent of street art vendors in Paris along the Seine.
  • “Unlocking the Cage,” which won this year’s Zelda Penzel Giving Voice to the Voiceless award at the Hamptons International Film Festival, is a film about a lawyer’s quest to give certain human rights to animals.
  • Given everywhere that Aaron Eckhart has lived, it is surprising his visit this week to the Hamptons International Film Festival will be the first time he has been on the South Fork.
  • Sharing duties, if perhaps not careers and personal outlooks, the actor Alec Baldwin and Randy Mastro, a high-profile litigator, reflect on their first year as Hamptons International Film Festival co-chairmen.
  • Columbus Day weekend on the South Fork has come to mean much more than changing leaves and pumpkin picking. It is also a long weekend of film, lots and lots of film. The Hamptons International Film Festival will begin next Thursday, and by the time it ends on Oct. 10 it will have screened 126 films — features and shorts, narrative and documentary.
  • As early adopters of the Slow Food movement, East End foodies may find the WLIW21 Metrofocus feature on the movement and its adherents old news. Yet to many around the region, the coverage of the East End’s farmers, chefs, and schoolyard gardens may prove edifying.
  • The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture has included images and objects with a Sag Harbor provenance in its first permanent collection installation.
