The Sag Harbor Historical Society is starting up its Fridays on the Porch series — informal open house events at the Annie Cooper Boyd House with refreshments and speakers. On Friday, July 12, Rebecca Radin will talk about the influence of William Merritt Chase’s Shinnecock Hills Summer School of Art on the painting of Annie Cooper Boyd.
Ms. Radin, a former professor of philosophy at the University of Michigan, ran an art gallery in the first Borders bookstore. The event goes from 5 to 6 p.m. Donations would be appreciated.
