  • January is a surprising month on the South Fork. While the crowds die down and the only bluster is the wind (and snow), there are often quiet but significant efforts to draw full-time residents and weekenders away from their hearths and out onto the scene again.
  • “I like the idea of asking the viewer to think, but only for the process of thinking, rather than a specific idea,” he said. “I want my paintings to elicit that.”
  • Now in its 12th year, the Tripoli Gallery “Thanksgiving Collective” has become a holiday season institution on the South Fork.
  • The stated aim of the Parrish Art Museum’s recurrent “Artists Choose Artists” exhibitions is to spark a visual dialogue between discrete triads of artists who work and live on the East End. Yet there is often a more comprehensive conversation that spreads between the walls and throughout the galleries, giving us a series of snapshots of current regional artistic practice and influences.
  • In this time of Instagram’s palm-sized square images, it is hard to imagine walking through the cavern of Grand Central Station and looking up to see a 60-foot-wide panoramic transparency of India’s Taj Mahal, astronauts in space, a field of Oregon wheat, Machu Picchu in Peru, a seaplane on Lake Placid, or skiers landing by plane near the Matterhorn in Switzerland.

  • The story of Scott Hamilton Kennedy and John McCaffrey is a tale of connections and coincidences, all born of two Wainscott households, one on each side of a line that separates the Georgica Association from the rest of the hamlet.
  • It is clear early on in the Guild Hall exhibition “Connie Fox and William King: An Artist Couple” that there is fun to be had there. A sense of play and the absurd is introduced from the very beginning both by the artists and the exhibition’s curator, Gail Levin.
