"Radical Seafaring," a new exhibition with a focus on off-shore art, opened last weekend at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill.

A private reception on Saturday was followed with a brunch reception for members on Sunday.  

Other special events tied to the exhibition include the docking of "WetLand," a modified houseboat designed by Mary Mattingly at Long Wharf in Sag Harbor. Demonstrations of the boat's custom systems of solar power, rain collection, gray water, and upcycling will take place in June, with hours to be announced.

On May 21, the Tideland Sessions will consist of an all-day series of talks and performances with a focus on environmental stewardship and the regional landscape lasting from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A reading of "Men's Lives," a play by Joe Pintauro based on the book by Peter Mattiessen about the East End fishing community, will be presented on June 17 at 6 p.m. Emma Walton Hamilton and Steve Hamilton will direct the reading.
