Five at Ashawagh

Denise Corley, Tom Fitzgibbon, Douglas Mulaire, Susan Taylor, and Steven Wright will display their paintings, works on paper, and constructions at Ashawagh Hall in Springs this weekend.

Ms. Corley works in painting, mixed media, and sculpture. Mr. Fitzgibbon tends toward constructions and multimedia. Mr. Mulaire’s work examines the interplay of color and light, and Ms. Taylor, an oil painter, is concerned with color and its movement and energy.

The show will be open Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m. and will close at 5 p.m. both days. A reception will be held Saturday evening from 5 to 8.


Show and Tell

Erica-Lynn Huberty will display an installation of her artwork and read from her Sag Harbor-based novella, “Watchwork: A Tale in Time,” tonight at 6 in the Malia Mills pop-up gallery space in East Hampton.

Ms. Huberty recently installed art at an abandoned Bridgehampton house that was destined for the wrecking ball. These works, which will be displayed in the gallery, are a reflection on an earlier era’s more modest buildings and lifestyle.

The artist is the author of  “Dog Boy and Other Harrowing Tales,” a 2011 book considered for two fiction prizes. She has also written for The New York Times and The Washington Post, among other publications.

The evening will benefit the Nature Conservancy and Habitat for Humanity, with a portion of the sale of books and artwork going to both nonprofits.


Next at Folioeast

The latest edition of folioeast’s Winter Salon series will also be presented at Malia Mills, opening with a reception on Saturday. 

Coco Meyers has chosen four artists who work in a variety of mediums: Francine Fleischer, who will show new photographs; Saskia Fried­rich’s new work, made up of small abstract panels; an abstract installation piece by Jeremy Grosvenor, and Mark Webber’s new free-standing and wall sculpture.

The show will remain on view through March 12.


Bovenkamp in Dallas

Who says cowboys don’t love sculpture? Hans Van de Bovenkamp of Sagaponack will show his work at the Samuel Lynne Galleries in Dallas beginning Saturday through April 3. A reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.

The exhibition is called “Through Time” and spans 30 years of the artist’s production of biomorphic and undulating forms, often reminiscent of sea life.


Tibor de Nagy

Works by John Ashbery, Rudy Burckhardt, and Larry Rivers, three artists with long associations with the South Fork, are included in a group show at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in Manhattan. The exhibition, which pairs older artists with a younger group, will remain on view through March 25.
