The first thing you notice upon entering “A Walk,” the new exhibition at the Tripoli Gallery in East Hampton, is the white wall-to-wall deep-pile carpeting — not so much how it looks but the way the feet sink into it and the slight resistance it provides — almost an impediment — even as it also soothes.
Orlando Hand Bears’s painting of Ephraim Byram, from 1834, is a life-size portrait of an important figure in Sag Harbor history. Martin Cohen, who once had a gallery on Madison Avenue and shops in Water Mill and Wainscott many years ago, will have it for sale at his booth at Market Art + Design beginning today.
A busy week kicks off at Guild Hall tomorrow with performances by Reserved for Rondee and 2/3 Goat. Both groups incorporate elements of classic rock in their music: the former blending it with contemporary rock to create an indie rock sound, and the latter fusing it with bluegrass and alternative country.
Ian Spencer Bell, a dancer, choreographer, and poet, will perform a short program of new works, including “Holler,” which premiered in March at the Poetry Foundation in Chicago, on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Ille Arts in Amagansett.
