Vito Schnabel in N.Y.C.
    Vito Schnabel, who has long ties to the South Fork through his parents, who live in Montauk and Bridgehampton, is presenting a show, “DSM-V,” organized by David Rimanelli at the old post office across from Penn Station in Manhattan.
    The show’s theme is taken from the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which will have a fifth revision released this month. The show is set in a part of the building that housed jail cells and an infirmary. The entire structure is being renovated to become an extension of the train station.
    Participating artists with South Fork connections include David Salle, Dash Snow, Andy Warhol, and Julian Schna­bel, the dealer’s father. The show will be on view through June 4 and is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Chrysalis to Show Davide
    Andrea Davide, a sculptor and aviation archeologist, will show work at Chrysalis Gallery in Southampton beginning Saturday.
    The gallery describes her group of “RoundTimers” as “both sculptural and mechanical: assemblages of finely wrought mechanism, gleaming brass, antique gears, glass, and stone, reflecting time, its passage, and its effects on us through works that resemble timekeepers but are not, since time cannot be captured or kept.”
    Ms. Davide will also show “TimePieces” that incorporate found objects and recovered artifacts, including “Eternity of Fate.” The piece is a result of an invitation to join the Air Force Art Program as an honorary colonel. She participated in an expedition to the Philippine Islands to excavate the crash site of Maj. Thomas McGuire Jr., a decorated World War II combat ace. “Eternity of Fate” incorporates two bullets excavated from the site.

Nature at Dodds and Eder
    The Dodds and Eder landscape store in Sag Harbor is showing “At Home in the Natural World,” work by Plein Air Peconic, which is devoted to painting from nature outside, often using land preserved by the Peconic Land Trust as its subject matter. A number of photographs are also in the exhibition.
    The artists include Casey Chalem Anderson, Susan D’Alessio, Aubrey Grainger, Anita Kusick, Michele Margit, Gordon Matheson, Joanne Rosko, Tom Steele, and Kathryn Szoka. A reception for the show will be held on Saturday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Yektai at Tripoli
    The Tripoli Gallery in Southampton will show “Darius Yektai: On Country Ground” beginning with a reception next Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m.
    Mr. Yektai brings global subject matter to his canvases but flavors them with a South Fork eye. He was born in Southampton and returned to the area 12 years ago as a full-time resident. In his landscapes and figurative works he incorporates various mediums into the traditional oil and canvas and plays with the tension between formalism and illusionism.
    He attended Occidental College and received a bachelor’s degree in art history at the American University in Paris. The show will remain on view through June 20.

Group of Three at Ashawagh
    A show of paintings and sculpture will take over Ashawagh Hall in Springs this weekend. Dennis Lawrence, Michael Cain, and Paul Pavia will show their work.
    Mr. Lawrence is an abstract painter who began as a figurative sculptor in wood and marble but shifted from realistic to abstract. Mr. Cain and Mr. Pavia are sculptors. The show will open Saturday at noon with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. It will remain up on Sunday until 5 p.m.

Massi and Sciulli at Ross
    The Ross School’s seventh-grade class has organized a show of Fulvio Massi and Christine Sciulli’s work for the school’s gallery in East Hampton. It opens tomorrow with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m.
    Jon Mulhern, an instructor at the school, served as an adviser for the students along with Carol Crane and Jennifer Cross. Ms. Sciulli, an installation artist, is artist in residence at the South Fork Natural History Museum. Mr. Massi is an abstract painter.
    The show, which is up through June 12, includes paintings by Mr. Massi as well as artwork the students created, inspired by his work. Students will collaborate with Ms. Sciulli on building an installation that will make use of their own video projections.

Alice Aycock to Speak
    Alice Aycock will give an illustrated talk tomorrow at 6 p.m. in the theater of the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill. The exhibition “Alice Aycock Drawings: Some Stories Are Worth Repeating” is on view at the museum and at the Grey Art Gallery at New York University.
    Ms. Aycock was educated at Douglass College and Hunter College and was part of a group of artists who exhibited at 112 Green Street in the 1970s, others being Gordon Matta-Clark, George Trakas, Jene Highstein, and Richard Nonas.
