  • There are at least two men named Andre Ethier of note: One is a baseball player and the other is a musician and artist. At the same time, Harper Levine now has two exhibition spaces bearing his name and curatorial vision, the Newtown Lane space he has occupied for many years and a new New York City space he has dubbed Harper’s Apartment.
  • Four screenwriters will come to East Hampton on Friday, April 8, to participate in the Hamptons International Film Festival’s Screenwriters Lab, the festival announced this week.
  • In an early workshop of a limited-run summer production, Kate Mueth offered a peek at “Andromeda,” her latest project with the Neo-Political Cowgirls.
  • It is possible to feel sorry for the artists who are on view at Ille Arts for the gallery’s inaugural exhibition at 171 Main Street in Amagansett. Sara DeLuca’s new quarters are perched a little higher from street level, and the floor-to-ceiling windows that span the south-facing wall provide a panoramic view both inside and out. The gallery almost steals the show.
  • There are two recent trends of note to East End art aficionados who split their time in varying percentages between here and New York City. One is the expansion of some East Hampton gallery spaces into Manhattan; the other is the rediscovery of some native female artists long relegated to the sidelines of mainstream art history.
  • If the complaint that there are not enough meaty roles in the theater for women sounds familiar, it may be because more women are doing something about it, even if they have to take matters into their own hands. Two actresses felt so strongly about appearing in “This Wide Night,” a play by the British playwright Chloe Moss, that they decided to produce it as well, and it will be staged at Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater beginning next Thursday.
  • Ruth Appelhof was surprised with her own Guild Hall Lifetime Achievement Award on Tuesday night at the Rainbow Room in New York City.
  • For the past few months, Guild Hall has displayed an array of photographic portraits in the intimate space of its Wasserstein Gallery. The set of 15 predominantly black-and-white prints, the work of Walter Weissman, befit the room, and the room enhances them.
  • With a freshly minted M.F.A. from the State University at New Paltz, Christian Little, a Southampton native, is already attracting attention for the coldly suggestive paintings in his “Exhibitionists” series on view now at Sara Nightingale’s gallery in Water Mill.
  • Arlene Bujese has had a long association with East End artists through several galleries and independent projects. This history has made her partnership with the Southampton Cultural Center successful for all concerned.
