East Hampton's Rental Gallery is here to add a bit of mischief and delight to our summer and year.
At first glance, “Alarms and Excursions,” running now through June 11 at the Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue, seems a light romp about the tribulations of contemporary life. Its playwright, Michael Frayn, also wrote “Noises Off,” the hugely successful comedy of manners from the early 1980s. Like its predecessor, “Alarms and Excursions” has...
Sotheby’s S/2, a gallery with exhibitions of art that are not up for auction, is showing the work of Alfonso Ossorio through June 9.
“Out of the Question: Reviving the Lost Art of Provocative Conversation” will return to the Southampton Arts Center on June 8 at 7:30 p.m. with “The Business of Art: Passion or Profit?”
The Montauk Library will be a virtual concert hall during the coming week, with three music programs, each with a different point of view. On Saturday evening at 7:30, Alexander Wu and the Serendip Piano Trio will present “A JFK Centennial, Return to Camelot: Music From the Kennedy White House Concerts, 1961-1963.” The program will include...

An opening reception with music by Job Potter and Friends will take place Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. The Nature Conservancy is launching its summer season with “Sacred Balance,” an art exhibition organized by Beth...
In 1973, after 30 successful years in the financial industry, Henry Buhl brought a new camera to his cousin’s wedding. The bride and groom preferred his photographs to the ones taken by the professional photographer they had hired, and a second career was born. He began to receive commissions to photograph art and fashion events for society...
The official start of summer might be June 21, but on the East End it comes early — this Saturday, to be exact, when the first of the summer’s benefit events, the ARF Designer Show House, kicks off three months of fund-raisers that support a wide range of charities and cultural institutions.
Fund-raising momentum is building for the purchase of the Sag Harbor Cinema property. Last week, boldface names such as Billy Joel, Martin Scorsese, and Harvey Weinstein were revealed to have joined the campaign. This week, Andy Cohen, who has a house on Noyac Bay, announced his support as well.
With a fresh outlook and a new lineup chock-full of luminaries, the Fridays at Five series of author talks at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton will have a new look and feel this year.
It might seem odd that Ruth Appelhof is currently in Rome, assembling a book proposal on the American artist Lee Krasner. But most everything about the project embraces the improbable and the serendipitous.
Scott Schwartz speaks in superlatives — “greatest,” “magnificent,” “world-class,” “thrilling,” “unparalleled,” and that is just in one sentence. Well, not really, but it is tempting to go “over the top” after spending an hour with his infectious enthusiasm.
The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will present tomorrow at 6 p.m. a performance by Hopefully Forgiven, whose musical styles, ranging from bluegrass to rock, are familiar to East End music fans.
