Eric Brown: In Transit
    Glenn Horowitz Bookseller will present “In Transit,” a solo exhibition of paintings, sculpture, and works on paper by Eric Brown, beginning Saturday through Nov. 4.
    Mr. Brown finds inspiration in the architectural plans of airport structures, runways, bridges, and highways, with their implications of “constant motion, some place in between, coming from, or going to somewhere else.” There are both minimalism and abstraction in his paintings, with a layer of spray paint covering a more gestural oil painting that hints at an industrial landscape.
    An opening reception will be held on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m.

Free Day at Guild Hall
    Guild Hall will participate in Smithsonian Magazine’s national “Museum Day Live!” on Saturday, with free admission all day, joining some 1,400 other participating venues for the eighth year of the event. Visitors will need to download a Museum Day Live! ticket at smithsonianmag.com/museumday/event.
    Current exhibitions on view are “Eric Fischl: Beach Life” and “Strong-Cuevas: Premonitions.”

Process Not Product
    The exhibition this weekend at Ashawagh Hall is “The Workshop Show 2012:  Process Not Product.” The artists include Abby Abrams, Patricia Feiwel, Elise Platt, Gabriele Raacke, Catherine Silver, Joyce Silver, and Rose Zelenetz.
Dennis Leri, the curator, has chosen works by artists who have attended his 3-D Mixed-Media workshop.
    The show will be open from Saturday at noon, with a reception from 4 to 7 p.m., through Sunday at 4 p.m.

Film Fest Posters
    The Peter Marcelle Gallery in Bridgehampton will show 20 years of Hamptons International Film Festival posters beginning on Saturday, with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The show will remain on view through the festival, closing on Oct. 8.
    Among the artists commissioned to design posters for the festival are Donald Baechler, Dan Rizzie, Donald Sultan, Eric Fischl, Barbara Krueger, Julian Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, David Salle, and April Gornik.

Don’t Waste My Time
    The Tripoli Gallery of Contemporary Art in Southampton will present an exhibition of unique prints and 16-millimeter film projections by Tin Ojeda called “Don’t Waste My Time,” beginning on Saturday and running through Oct. 29.
    Mr. Ojeda examines the “arbitrary — and sometimes absurd — anxiety attached to time,” according to the gallery, and the significance of the clock in contemporary culture. He uses it as an object in large-format film and silver gelatin prints and a series of film portraits, in which he captures his subjects over the course of several minutes, revealing more about them than would a single snapshot.
    A reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Photography in Amagansett
    Neoteric Fine Art is presenting “The Inner Lens,” a group show of young photographers through next Thursday. The gallery will hold a reception on Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.
    The show’s focus, according to the gallery, is on how photography may reflect personal experience, an intimate worldview, and “self-voyeurism.” The artists include Mia Berg, Daniel Cabrera, Josh Cohen, Maggie Harrsen, Hailey Kohlus, Kate Petrone, Yaan Pessino, and Ingrid Silva.

Lambrecht in N.Y.C.
    Rick Wester Fine Art in New York City is presenting a survey of photographs by Laurie Lambrecht of Bridgehampton, taken in China in 2009. The works are a continuation of the artist’s examination of nature that began with her “Lake Tree” series taken in Lake Zurich, Switzerland, from 2004 to 2008.
    According to the gallery the latest series, while bold statements in form and color, retains the delicacy of “Lake Trees.” The show will be on view through Nov. 3.
