Facing the Portrait at Ross
The Ross School gallery in East Hampton will exhibit contemporary portrait paintings in a show opening tomorrow with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m.
“Face Off” will feature the work of Sydney Albertini, Jack Ceglic, John Hardy, Christa Maiwald, and Christina Schlesinger. The show was organized by students in Jennifer Cross’s museum studies class — Julian Fava, Rebecca Hamilton, Jeheli Odidi, Hongjie Zhu, and Sun Zhehai.
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.
