  • At an intimate party, money was raised for abused children and Katie Beers discussed her ordeal.
  • Last Thursday night, a storm brewed in Bridgehampton and threatened to spread east across the towns into the peaceful Village of East Hampton. This being late July, everything about the previous sentence is spurious. The weather was calm and East Hampton, peaceful? In July?

    Still, there is no denying that “The Tempest,” that old play by William Shakespeare, will take over East Hampton, specifically Mulford Farm, from Wednesday to Aug. 24.

  • The Hamptons International Film Festival will present two more films before the end of the summer, Rory Kennedy’s “The Last Days in Vietnam” and “The Overnighters” from Jesse Moss.

  • The East Hampton club won several blue ribbons across many categories, including floral design, horticulture, and photography.
  • Richmond Burton likes to paint big, unless he wants to paint small. He uses oil paints applied so thinly they appear matte, sometimes translucent, and a lot more like acrylic. He is a trained architect who prefers mark-making in a two-dimensional form, and he really likes color, but sometimes he does not. His work over the past two decades has shown a dance across the spectrum of rigid systems of grids and complete abandonment of that structure for more organic abstraction.

  • If there were any remaining questions as to whether the South Fork could support three art fairs, their continued return over the past few years should quell them.

    Those looking for an absorbing beach read with substance will enjoy Gabrielle Selz’s memoir, “Unstill Life.” It is the story of Peter Selz and Thalia Cheronis Selz and their two daughters, Tanya and Gabrielle, who writes about art for The Huffington Post.

  • “Villa Diodati,” a film of a chamber opera by Bank Street Films and produced by Gabriel Nussbaum, will be previewed at the Montauk Library on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

    The plot revolves around the fateful summer of 1816, when Mary Shelley penned “Frankenstein” while staying in Geneva at the Villa Diodati with Percy Shelley and Lord Byron. An American couple on a Swiss train find themselves thrown into the past and into the lakefront villa on a dreary summer day when Mary Shelley is creating her monster.
