  • As they had with their studio and living space in Manhattan’s Chelsea, G. Phillip Smith and Douglas Thompson were planning to start from scratch when they built a house for themselves on the East End. The partners, who met at the Columbia School of Architecture, spent two years looking for a suitable lot, where they could exercise their Modernist sensibility in a tranquil setting.

  •    The restoration of the only extant 19th-century bathhouse in East Hampton Village, one of several outbuildings on the Thomas Moran property on Main Street overlooking Town Pond and the first to be restored, has been completed.

  •    Members of the Wednesday Group, plein-air painters, don’t take up a lot of room when they set up their canvases, which they do at least once or twice a week for six months a year, depending on the weather, at any number of spots, some near the water and some not.

  •    Toby Haynes is a representational artist whose work ranges from portraits of animals to portraits of people and to seascapes and plein-air landscapes. A man who divides his time between East Hampton and Launceston, Cornwall — where he has lived since 1978 with sheep and cows grazing outside his window and, for 17 years, without electricity — it is not surprising that he is inspired by nature and by the light in both places, which are surrounded by water.

  • It was a roundabout route that would set one New Yorker down in the hamlet she came to love.
  •     Once the small group at the Amagansett Citizens Advisory Committee’s meeting on Monday evening had dispensed with minutes and reports from the committee’s zoning and planning board liaisons, summer 2012 seemed uppermost in everyone’s minds.

         East of the Bridgehampton School, between the Montauk Highway and fields farmed by the McCoy family, the property also has a barn and several outbuildings, including a guest house.

  •     The Pamela Williams gallery on Main Street in Amagansett will close its doors at the end of the month.
        Ms. Williams, who opened the gallery on Feb. 12, 2005, after being a director at Lizan Tops in East Hampton for 10 years, until it closed, was followed by many artists to her new space.

  • John Iversen, a jeweler and goldsmith, balks at being called an artist, but it’s impossible to look at the cuff-like bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and brooches he has made over the last 30 years and not see them as wearable sculptures. Apparently the curators of the Drawing Room agree, as they are showing his elegantly wrought jewelry and works on paper in the same gallery that has shown the artists Jennifer Bartlett, Robert Harms, and Costantino Nivola, among others.
