The Golden Eagle, a local institution that has long provided fine-art supplies, children’s art supplies and toys, fun and unusual gifts, and year-round art instruction for adults and children, will close its doors on Sept. 30.
Elizabeth Dow, an artist and designer who is director of the Applied Arts School for the Arts in Amagansett, will take occupancy on Oct. 1. The Golden Eagle’s owners, Nancy and Tom Rowan, are seeking a new location for the store, which they have run at 14 Gingerbread Lane in East Hampton since 2001.
In a grove of cedars in the woods of Springs, Marcia Previti and Peter Gumpel have taken architecture into an unexpected, although appropriate, realm: the outdoors.
The couple, who are architects, have lived in a “raised ranch, split-level, postmodern bungalow” (in their words) for 22 years. In the course of those two-plus decades, they have taken the art and science of constructing buildings and, one could say, turned it inside out, creating a series of outdoor “rooms” filled with surprise.
