East End Scenes

“Farms, Water, and East End Scenes,” a show of work by Aubrey Grainger, a plein-air painter from Sagaponack, is on view at the Quogue Library’s art gallery through Jan. 29. A reception will be held on Jan. 14 from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

Ms. Grainger is a former member of Plein Air Peconic, a group of artists who paint the farmland of the East End in connection with the Peconic Land Trust. Two years ago she launched “Thirty Squared,” a challenge to artists to paint 30 paintings in 30 days. The challenge was met in 2015 and 2016, with the results shown at the Water Mill Museum.
