The Art Scene: 09.13.12

Local art news
The photography of Ricardo B. Sanchez can be seen at the Tulla Booth Gallery in Sag Harbor through Oct. 10.

Next for Ille Arts
     Ille Arts, a relatively new gallery just off Amagansett’s Main Street, will open “Raw,” a show of work by four artists, with a reception on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. Taking part in the exhibit are Andrew Guenther, whose paintings, often in almost primary colors or black and white, can evoke either the Abstract Expressionist period or outsider art, and Jose Lerma, whose recent work has been nightmarish pen-and-ink portraits of bewigged faces, some layered with what appears to be cut and restitched fabric, giant heads, and multilayered installations.
    Also showing will be Liz Markus, a painter, and Wendy White, whose large canvases often incorporate text. The show will be up until Oct. 10.

“Wet” at OutEast
    James Katsipis, a Montauk born-and-bred photographer, and Luiza de Moraes Campos, a Los Angeles-based photographer who spent her early childhood in her parents’ native Brazil, will show their work in “Wet” at Montauk’s OutEast Gallery and Goods on Tuthill Road from Saturday through early October. The pairing has Mr. Katsipis’s work, which includes landscapes, underwater images, and carefully staged black-and-white work with models, contrasting with Ms. de Moraes Campos’s intimate and often erotic portraits.
    Mr. Katsipis began studying photography in high school and continued in college. He makes his living in commercial photography and has shot several television pilots. His film “True Terrace” was screened at a Surfrider Foundation event in East Hampton in August.
    As a girl, Ms. de Moraes Campos moved with her family from Rio de Janeiro to California. She studied at San Diego State University, majoring in English literature before deciding to take up the camera. Her work expresses her interest in female sexuality, her Brazilian heritage, and dreams, according to a release from the gallery.
    An opening party will be on Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m.

Community Art Show
    The Community Arts Project will present photographic work in “This and That,” which begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday at the Springs Presbyterian Church on Old Stone Highway. The photographers include Bruce Milne, Sadie Klughers, Rosa Hanna Scott, David Wilt, and Brad Loewen. Marilyn DeCarlo-Ames will show her Polaroid transfer prints.
    A reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday. Hours are noon to 8 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Juried in Southampton

Five at Ashawagh
    A group show will be on view Saturday through Monday at Ashawagh Hall in Springs, with work in a range of mediums by Chick Bills, Marcie Honerkamp, Dennis Lawrence, and Christine Liderbauch.
    Ms. Liderbauch, who has previously exhibited pencil drawings at Ashawagh Hall, will show new sculptural assemblies of plastic automobile parts. Mr. Bills, who lives with Ms. Liderbauch in a house with adjoining studios in Northwest, East Hampton, will hang digitally manipulated images. Ms. Honerkamp’s mosaics will be on view, and Mr. Lawrence will show paintings.
    A reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m.

An end-of-summer reception will be held there tomorrow from 6 to 8 p.m. A tasting of local food and wine has been promised, and a donation of $10 has been suggested.
