There is something spectral about the abandoned structure parked in the middle of Glenn Horowitz Bookseller in East Hampton. Once erected in the woods in the no-man’s-land between Noyac and Bridgehampton, it was the temporary home of Adam Stennett in a self-created artist’s residency executed commando-style. Now, it is the centerpiece of an exhibition devoted to the work he produced there and the time he spent there called “Survival, Evasion and Escape (The Artist’s Studio).”
Ille Arts in Amagansett will present “Figure and Ground” beginning Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The show will feature figurative work in multiple mediums organized by Vivien Bittencourt and Vincent Katz. The artists include Ms. Bittencourt, Rudy Burckhardt, Juan Gomez, Jan Henle, and Alex Katz.
