Handmade for Neoteric
Neoteric Fine Art in Amagansett will open “Handmade” on Saturday. The show, which runs through Dec. 20, will be a holiday-themed exhibit of handmade artisan crafts and small works by local artists. The show emphasizes the personal human touch, according to Scott Bluedorn, the gallery director. Items will include jewelry, furniture, surfboards, home goods, designer objects, toys, trinkets, clothes, and other things small and large.
Absence of the Body
The Halsey Mckay Gallery in East Hampton will present “Habeas Corpus” beginning Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition will take the legal writ, which prevents unlawful detention, in its most literal sense — to produce the body. For the purposes of this show, however, it will subvert this right by removing the figure from these works.
Susan and Stanley Reifer will open their Bridgehampton garden on Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm. through the Garden Conservency.

The garden is at 5 Paumanok Road, Bridgehampton and admission is $5.

Thursday night was the night to be in Bridgehampton. Long lines of cars snaked through the back roads and front roads around the Bridgehampton Museum and Nova's Ark where two annual art fairs have taken up residence for the next few days.
It was the opening night for both ArtHamptons and Art Market Hamptons and even those with black cards, VIP passes, or other bells and whistles on their forms of entry had a tough time negotiating parking.
Inside, however, all was lively and fun, as these photos of the Art Market Hamptons fair by Morgan McGivern demonstrate.
