  •    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.

  • Tuesday is the day when the Amagansett satellite of the East Hampton Food Pantry opens at 3 p.m. for pickups. Originally located at Scoville Hall, its temporary home now is St. Michael’s Lutheran Church, at least until the hall is repaired after a fall fire that destroyed a good part of it.

    A blood drive will be held on Monday from noon to 7:15 p.m. at the American Legion Hall, which is at the corner of Montauk Highway and Abraham’s Path. Anyone needing information can call 324-3842.

  • Hans Vandebovenkamp, who has fulfilled more than 100 commissions for his massive sculptures and had more than 50 one-man shows in different parts of the world, has executed perhaps his largest — living — sculpture to date in Sagaponack, where he and his late wife, Siv Cedering, set about transforming a former horse farm into a sculpture park, replete with chickens and golden pheasants.

  •     The Drawing Room gallery, which was opened by Emily Goldtein and Victoria Munroe in an allée off the north side of Newtown Lane in East Hampton Village in 2004, has moved to a temporary spot farther west on the same street, next to Mecox Gardens and across from Waldbaum’s.
        “We outgrew the space two or three years ago,” said Ms. Munroe recently. Between that and knowing a year ago that they would have to leave their nook, they had been looking around and feel lucky to have found the space at 66 Newtown Lane.

  • An indoor-outdoor house, defined, in part, by Adirondack style and, in part, by what its owners call Thai Art Deco, is hidden a few hundred feet off  Montauk Highway in Amagansett.

        Behind the Bayberry Nursery on a pond surrounded by woodland, the house expresses the creative imaginations of David Seeler, who has owned the nursery since 1970, and his wife, Ngaere Macray, an artist and garden expert.

  •     When Robert Stansel and Tammy Marek of Portland, Ore., saw a rendering of what an architect hoped to build on property on Green Hollow Road in East Hampton, they were intrigued. Three years later, Maziar Behrooz’s Arc House is almost finished. The couple have been living in it since last winter, although they travel back and forth to the West Coast.

  • Which of two neighbors rightfully owns a cat, which one woman believes is her long-lost Ragdoll, a cream-colored breed created in the 1960s, will apparently be resolved in court.
  •     “I bought my car based on what I could fit into it,” Cynthia Knott said recently at her Springs studio, gesturing at her all-terrain vehicle. “That way I can go on the beach and get out of the way of hurricanes.”

  • The seventh annual Authors Night, a book signing and cocktail party on Saturday under a tent on the lawn of the East Hampton Library from 5 to 7:30 p.m., will benefit the library. The reception will be followed at 8 by more than 30 dinner parties in private houses, at each of which will be an author. These have all been sold out, however.

  •     Soldier Ride the Hamptons will be dedicated on Saturday to Lance Cpl. Jordan C. Haerter and will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit that makes financial, medical, and emotional assistance available to United States soldiers wounded overseas.
    Registration will get under way at 7:45 a.m. at the Principis’ Ocean View Farm on Montauk Highway in Amagansett. The dedication and blessing, given by the Rev. Steven E. Howarth of the Amagansett Presbyterian Church, will begin at 8:45, and the riders will set out at 9.
