  • For all the rich cultural diversity the East End offers, dance has always lagged behind the visual arts, music, and theater. On Tuesday, though, East Hampton audiences will get a rare chance to see a show devoted to tap-dancing.

  • Admit it, we all desperately need some spring in our lives, and a smidgen of meaning wouldn’t hurt either. Sara Nightingale felt the same way, and she has mounted a show that brings together the pretty colors of spring in artwork that also has something to say.

  • Given Robert Dash’s diverse range of interests and talents — he was an artist, writer, horticulturalist, and creator of the Madoo Conservancy gardens at his Sagaponack property — it can be hard to get your arms around the man and his legacy. Extolling one aspect without the others is a poor strategy that could lead to only a third of the story. The Parrish Art Museum understands this and is taking its responsibility seriously in examining his distinctive contributions to the landscape and cultural life of the South Fork.

  • Christopher Byrne knew the significance of the house he purchased on Alewife Brook Road way before he thought about living in it.

  • It might seem as though the new Parrish Art Museum exhibition, “Perspectives‚” was a last-minute, thrown-together thing, but its spontaneity is intentional and considered.

    According to the museum, the short lead time worked well with these shows, which are responses to recent events or acquisitions. Each is a very focused presentation, including only objects related to one subject or theme.

  • If you want fresh vegetables, grown with organic methods, and like the idea of being as close to the farming of them as possible, the C.S.A. model may be for you and sign-ups are starting now.
  • The cleaning of “Alchemy,” one of Jackson Pollock’s earliest poured paintings, has revealed a new depth of color and contributed further evidence that his working methods included using a structural plan as a way to ground his poured compositions.
  • Johannes Brahms will be celebrated by the Choral Society of the Hamptons on March 22 in an early evening concert at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church.

    “Brahms in Love” should remind its audience why the composer’s funeral cortege attracted thousands of mourners on the streets of Vienna in 1897. The program will include an arrangement of his well-known “Lullaby,” as well as “Lovesong Waltzes” for chorus and four-hand piano, four songs for women’s chorus, horns, and harp, and four love songs for men’s chorus.

  • Typically, when one orders a daiquiri or a mojito, it is not preceded by a call brand the way a Grey Goose martini or a Jack and coke is. With the advent of premium small-batch rums over the past few years, however, that should change.

  • A show of work by Jane Freilicher will be presented this week by the Tibor de Nagy Gallery at the Art Dealers Association of America’s "Art Show" fair in New York City.

    Ms. Freilicher, who died last year, was not only a “painterly realist‚” in the words of her gallery, but an inspiration for several poets of the era, including Frank O’Hara and John Ashbery, who were also her friends. She was known for the still lifes that she often placed near her windows, showing the view outside her Water Mill studio.
