  • This year, LongHouse’s arts committee has made some bold and dramatic selections well suited for the unique environment.
  • For the past decade, it’s seemed that Mary Heilmann was bent on world domination. A career survey show that started in her native California in 2007 and made stops in Houston and Columbus, Ohio, before concluding at Manhattan’s New Museum in 2009, ignited a critical and popular response that led to several solo shows in New York, Holland, and all over Germany, and a regular presence at the most respected international art fairs.
  • Sandra Bernhard, always provocative and topical, is bringing her latest mix of comedy, rock ’n’ roll, cabaret, and a little burlesque to Guild Hall on Friday, July 8.
  • Jack Lenor Larsen has channeled 25 years of creative energy into the house, sculpture, gardens, and overall landscape of the LongHouse Reserve, his residence and public preserve in East Hampton.
  • Koichiro Kurita has a way with rocks, with trees, with ponds, indeed with nature in all its forms in straightforward photography, and, more recently, with collage. His insanely textural and captivating images are on view at Ille Arts in Amagansett with Takeshi Shikama’s photographs from his “Urban Forests” and “Garden of Memory” series.
  • Although there are some outliers, it is striking how many pieces in “TERRITORY: Abstraction on the East End Today” have such a strong linear and geometric approach. Whether by accident or design, the show makes a strong case for a local aesthetic that favors such a style of abstraction.
  • Bridgehampton, Sagaponack, and Wainscott will be the focus of this year’s Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons garden tour, to be held on Saturday. Celebrating its 30th year, the tour will include five private gardens of note.
  • For a few short weeks, the galleries at Guild Hall will bring East Africa to East Hampton through the local and international photography and collage work of Peter Beard.

  • Toni Ross’s sculptures sometimes seem like they are everywhere, and often it is because they are. With regular shows here and in New York, a recent show in Paris, and a coming installation at Marders in Bridgehampton in conjunction with the Parrish Road Show in August, she is currently showing at the Drawing Room in East Hampton.
