  • Sabina Streeter’s studio sits on Madison Street in Sag Harbor just across from Il Cappucino. It is a good perch to witness the mid-August street scene that was passing by during a recent interview, as well as the village’s ever-changing landscape over the 15 or so years she has lived and worked there.

  • The gallerist Larry Gagosian has a long-running lawsuit against him brought by Ronald Perelman, a former friend and client.
  • While some of us were basking in the sun or sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic to get to the next much-hyped event, Enoc Perez was hard at work in his East Hampton studio on the pieces presented in “Summer Job” at Harper’s Books in East Hampton.
        The frothy riff touches on social media, appropriation, modern art, and, if you’re feeling academic in these lazy dog days, Lacanian notions and related theories of the subject and object of the gaze in art.

  • Late summer on the South Fork can sometimes seem like a mostly deflated balloon: paunchy, flaccid, and spent. A sense of scraping bottom often takes hold, and any new endeavor, show, or exhibition is met with suspicion or derision, often borne of the same contagious exhaustion.

  • The Box Art Auction benefit for East End Hospice will present a preview of the cigar box creations of area artists beloved locally and internationally on Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. at Hoie Hall of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in East Hampton Village. The boxes will remain on view next Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The auction itself will be held Sept. 6 at the Ross School.

  • If you can’t get enough Shakespeare and haven’t had enough of Propero so far this summer, “The Tempest” is being offered twice this weekend by the Bay Street Theater, although not at its home base. On Saturday, a free outdoor reading will take place at Mashashimuet Park in Sag Harbor. On Sunday, the actors will meet guests and present another reading of the play on Shelter Island. Both performances start at 7.

  • “Last Days in Vietnam,” the third film in the Hamptons International Film Festival’s SummerDocs series, will be screened on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Guild Hall.

    This final film from Rory Kennedy, whose intimate biography of her mother in the film “Ethel” was screened in the SummerDocs series two years ago.

    Alec Baldwin will host the event and lead a discussion with Ms. Kennedy and Stuart Herrington, one of the subjects of the film.

  • For more than a half century, a group of writers and artists have met in East Hampton to duke it out for supremacy on a softball diamond. Some of the most vaunted names in American arts and letters have participated, making it an almost sacred ritual in some circles.
