Pale of feature and hair and slender of form, Scott Bluedorn does not look like a ringleader or potent cultural force, but then looks can be deceiving. On a recent winter evening, he passed around a plastic container with the fruits of one of his latest projects — worm farming — as he projected slides describing its ideal conditions.
Time Has Come Again
Guild Hall is now accepting entries for its annual Artist Members Exhibition, to be held from April 27 through June 1.
This year’s awards judge is Elisabeth Sussman, the curator of photography at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Ms. Sussman was also a curator of the museum’s biennial exhibitions in 1993 and 2012.
Filmmakers participating in the Stony Brook Southampton’s summer shorts 20-day intensive production workshop were given a warm welcome on Monday with an opening discussion with Todd Haynes, the director of “Far from Heaven,” “Velvet Goldmine,” “I’m Not There,” “Mildred Pierce,” “Safe,” and many other original and provocative films.
A documentary about an early pioneer of ecologically friendly architecture will be shown Monday at the Southampton Arts Center at 6 p.m. AIA Peconic will present “The Vision of Paolo Soleri: Prophet in the Desert,” which has been selected for a number of film festivals this year from Boston to Sedona and even New Zealand.
Beginning Wednesday at 10 a.m., Paddle 8 will hold an auction of Robert Wilson’s own artwork as well as his personal collection of chairs.
Mr. Wilson told ARTINFO that his collection was being culled because he no longer had room to keep it all after moving out of his Tribeca loft. “Selling them, however, is like letting your children go,” he said. But he sees it as an opportunity for more people to enjoy them in a way he no longer can.
Those looking for a lovely spring stroll through some of the most exclusive private gardens in Southampton Village had a treat on Sunday during the garden tour portion of the Parrish Art Museum’s Landscape Pleasures weekend.
On Saturday, guests heard talks by Chip Callaway, Martin Filler, and Arne Maynard.
