Kanovitz Films at Parrish

Two short films by Lana Jokel on the life and work of the late American Photorealist painter Howard Kanovitz will be shown tomorrow at 6 p.m. at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill.

Presented in collaboration with the Hamptons Take 2 Film Festival in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibition, “From Lens to Eye to Hand: Photorealism 1969 to Today,” the screening will be followed by a conversation with Ms. Jokel, a longtime friend of the artist, Rainer Gross, who worked with Kanovitz from 1971 to 1974, and the artist’s widow, Carolyn Oldenbusch Kanovitz. Terrie Sultan, the museum’s director, will moderate.

“Camera and Mirror-Painting Through the Lens: Howard Kanovitz” provides a look at the artist during the period when his work evolved from Abstract Expressionism to Photorealism. “Hamptons Drive-In,” featuring archi­val footage of the Hamptons, documents the making of Kanovitz’s iconic painting by the same name.

Tickets are $20, free for members and students.


Jonathan Glynn Pastels

“Pastels,” a solo show of work by Jonathan Nash Glynn of Sag Harbor, will be on view at Arthur T. Kalaher Fine Art in Southampton from tomorrow through Dec. 2, with a reception set for Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Mr. Glynn moves freely among mediums, having produced substantial bodies of ceramics, paintings, works on paper, and sculpture that range from pure abstraction to expressive figuration, often combining disparate visual elements.

Twenty-five percent of proceeds from exhibition sales will benefit Wings Over Haiti, a nonprofit Mr. Glynn founded to help build schools in Haiti. The art in this exhibition was inspired by his experience in Haiti and with Caribbean art.


New at Sara Nightingale

An exhibition of new and recent works by Perry Burns, Cara Enteles, and Anne Raymond will open at the Sara Nightingale Gallery in Sag Harbor with a reception Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m. and remain on view through Dec. 31. A percentage of proceeds from works sold over the holiday weekend will benefit East Hampton Meals on Wheels, as will contributions to a raffle of a floral bouquet donated by Lilee Fell Flowers.

Mr. Burns’s paintings merge the traditions of Islamic pattern and Abstract Expressionism, with a focus on color, shape, line, mark, and texture. Ms. Enteles’s nature paintings on aluminum and acrylic panels combine silkscreen printing and oil painting with other techniques. In her large abstract oils on canvas and works on paper, Ms. Raymond is inspired by sky, water, and motion.
