  • If the name Geoffrey Drummond is not familiar, it should be. For years, the East Hampton-based producer and director has provided armchair epicureans the vicarious thrill of watching others perform miraculous feats in the kitchen.
  • Remember 1975? Those alive that year would have witnessed the fall of Saigon, two assassination attempts on President Gerald R. Ford, the conviction and sentencing of three key Nixon administration officials due to Watergate, and the premiere of “Saturday Night Live.”
  • With as thoroughly examined a career as Chuck Close has had, it doesn’t seem possible that a new wrinkle could be found to probe his output and process. And yet, in any comprehensive way, the most obvious elements — the photographs essential to his process since he first moved to New York in the late 1960s — have been, for the most part, neglected.

  • Robert Harms makes paintings you want to inhale, lie beside, wallow in. In a little cottage on Little Fresh Pond in Southampton, he bides the time, season by season, absorbing his surroundings through eyes that transmute the air and landscape into a distillation of time and place.

  • Those who love looking at other people’s gardens are in for a treat this weekend. The South Fork is celebrating National Public Gardens Day tomorrow, while on Saturday the Garden Conservancy will hold one of its Open Days, when the public can stroll through five private gardens.
  • The Alexander Gray gallery in Chelsea has a mini-retrospective on view of Joan Semmel, a summer resident of East Hampton since 1971, which takes up two floors and covers five decades.
  • Over the years, the painterly products of Chuck Close’s photographs have transcended the art world to become part of popular culture, while the source material has been mostly held back from consideration.
  • There are few places in East Hampton Town that have updated their look without sacrificing their history. Old Stone Highway is one of those places, with careful renovations and restorations of classic Springs buildings and gardens aplenty.
  • So you might like opera, but don’t want the time commitment and are confused by the plot? Then Divaria’s “La Traviata‚” to be presented at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Saturday night, might be for you.
