  • Works by John Ashbery, Rudy Burckhardt, and Larry Rivers, three artists with long associations with the South Fork, are included in a group show at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in Manhattan. Erica-Lynn Huberty will display an installation of her artwork and read from her Sag Harbor-based novella, “Watchwork: A Tale in Time,” tonight at 6 in the Malia Mills pop-up gallery space in East Hampton.
  • Playing a psychiatrist in David Mamet's new play, “The Penitent,” Chris Bauer must wrestle with religion, the press, and the legal system as well as "the athletic technical demands" of the play.
  • The Grenning Gallery’s artists on view in “Expanding Tradition: The Journey of the African-American Artist“ paint portraits, landscapes, and still lifes, but through a personal lens that reproduces a world similar to but more diverse than the traditional artistic mainstream.
  • “Barney’s Wall,” a film in the making for several years, celebrates Barney Rosset’s creativity and his fierce devotion to First Amendment rights. Although the film is still a few steps short of completion, a rough cut was shown last month in Manhattan at the Century Association.
  • Helen Charash, a part-time East Hampton resident, is featured in a new documentary "Eva Hesse," about the life and art of her sister. It will be screened at the Southampton Arts Center tomorrow.
  • Jenno Topping’s commitment to mentor and support women in film has led to one of her most noteworthy and lauded achievements to date: helping to bring “Hidden Figures” to the screen.
  • “Visionaries,” the new Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum exhibition, which opened on Saturday, celebrates the avant-garde instincts and connoisseurship of the people who shaped the museum’s collection. Although it contains precious few American artists, that hasn’t stopped its curators from celebrating one American painting in particular, Jackson Pollock’s “Al­chemy.”
  • A recent symposium in Manhattan brought together scholars from around the country and across the Atlantic to study “Abstract Expressionism: Works on Paper.” One of the more interesting and revealing presentations came from Helen Harrison, the director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in Springs, which was a co-presenter of the program with the Clyfford Still Museum and Stony Brook University.
  • Libraries used to be repositories of books and collections that were held close, in some cases available only to preapproved researchers by appointment. The East Hampton Library is embracing a more contemporary model, wherein its collection is accessible to researchers in their homes and offices.
  • Two decades ago, Neil LaBute emerged on the scene with “In the Company of Men,” a movie taken from his earlier play, with a plot featuring the callous seduction of a deaf woman. The film received a number of awards and distinctions, and it launched him as an enfant terrible who went out of his way to say the heretofore unsayable.
