  • Silas Marder, who has been a critical part of the Marders Landscaping mini-empire in Bridgehampton, is stepping away from the family business, including his Silas Marder Gallery there, to pursue his own creative interests, including an expansion of his line of outdoor furniture.
  • It’s hard not be charmed by Dan Rizzie and Peter Marcelle’s “Whale of a Show” at the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum.
  • A painted mural on the side of the building by Jen Stark needed town approval, code enforcement department said.
  • The day before the holiday weekend began, the Eric Firestone Gallery looked like the last moments of a child’s birthday party. Still-unwrapped presents — paintings and sculptures just out of their crates — sat about, waiting to be hung upon the walls or set on the floor.
  • The Animal Rescue Fund Thrift and Treasure Shop will hold its annual Designer Showhouse and Sale, now an institution, this weekend, likely bringing relief to many who may have expected it to be held at what had been its traditional scheduling on Memorial Day weekend.
  • Down a long, narrow driveway running past the historic Thomas Halsey Homestead in Southampton, Leslie and George Biddle’s weekend and summer retreat is a rambling Victorian full of quirky and fanciful details in its many rooms, porches, and spaces.
  • If the name Geoffrey Drummond is not familiar, it should be. For years, the East Hampton-based producer and director has provided armchair epicureans the vicarious thrill of watching others perform miraculous feats in the kitchen.
  • Remember 1975? Those alive that year would have witnessed the fall of Saigon, two assassination attempts on President Gerald R. Ford, the conviction and sentencing of three key Nixon administration officials due to Watergate, and the premiere of “Saturday Night Live.”

And yet, in any comprehensive way, the most obvious elements — the photographs essential to his process since he first moved to New York in the late 1960s — have been, for the most part, neglected.

  • Robert Harms makes paintings you want to inhale, lie beside, wallow in. In a little cottage on Little Fresh Pond in Southampton, he bides the time, season by season, absorbing his surroundings through eyes that transmute the air and landscape into a distillation of time and place.
