  • “Rome”
    Robert Hughes
    Knopf, $35

  •    When one thinks of garden and landscape photography, it is often of color-saturated vistas and floral abundance. But when Leslie Rose Close gave a talk on Sunday afternoon about the history of garden photography, it was some time before the first color slide appeared, and the effect was jarring.

  •    Purists may sniff at giving up an entire museum show to a single private collector and — in the Parrish Art Museum’s case — putting art on the wall that is from an entirely different region of the country. Yet there is an argument to be made for the “EST-3: Southern California in New York-Los Angeles Art from the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection” exhibition, and the museum and its curator have made it well.

  • New Work at Vered
        “Ray Caesar: Selected Works” will open at the Vered Gallery in East Hampton tomorrow. The exhibition features the artist’s work in Maya, a three-dimensional modeling software used for digital animation effects in film and games.

  • New Amagansett Gallery

  • Body on View at Ashawagh
        “Body of Work VII” will revisit the figurative work of several members of this group of artists, including Rosalind Brenner, Linda Capello, Michael Cardacino, Cynthia Loewen, Anthony Lombardo, Bob Markell, Frank Sofo, and Margaret Weissbach. In addition, four other artists have been invited to exhibit with the group for the first time — Janet Culbertson, Tina Folks, Douglas Reina, and Frederick Paxton Werner.

  •    We all should write a thank you note to Robert Wilson for locating his grand experiment in arts sponsorship on the South Fork.

  • With the buzz factor on the new Cindy Sherman retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art already at full decibels, aptly descriptive words such as malleable, prescient, and chameleon-like are already sounding like clichés.

  • New Parrish Film Program
        The Parrish Art Museum will present East End Stories on Screen, a periodic film program drawing upon rare home movies, newsreels, documentaries, and interviews with East End artists, tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. Andrea Grover, curator of programs, has organized the series as a companion to the Museum’s East End Stories Web site (artists.parrishart.org), which contains information on more than 600 artists who have lived and worked in the area since the mid-1800s.

  •     The Choral Society of the Hamptons will explore three centuries of music in its spring concert on March 18 at 5 p.m. at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church. Jesse Mark Peckham will conduct and three soprano soloists will participate.
