  • 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. Yet millions did, courtesy of an advertising campaign by Kodak.
  • Two years in the making, the East End Special Players will bring a new production to Sag Harbor on Saturday called “Trouble in Jamaica.”
  • Last summer, Yuka Silvera found herself seated next to Tony Walton in a theater in Dexter, Mich., watching “My Fair Lady.” It was opening night. “Every time Eliza came out,” she said, “he would poke me.”
  • Looking at the happy, bright-colored paintings of Guy Yanai, an Israeli artist who has taken over the first floor of Harper’s Books in East Hampton through mid-December, a viewer might be tempted to decide they were a cross-pollinated canvas offspring of the visions of Jennifer Bartlett, Richard Die­benkorn, and David Hockney.
  • 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.
  • From time to time, it is worth considering the world outside our own little bubble. Fairfield Porter, an artist with whom South Fork visual art enthusiasts are well acquainted, is such an example.
  • True crime stories continue to fascinate the American public, whether in podcasts like “Serial” and “In the Dark” or on television, where shows such as “Unsolved Mysteries” are staples. This week the focus is on Long Island, with the release of two series that take the Long Island Serial Killer case as a launching point.
