  •    Overcoming years of planning and fund-raising hurdles, and despite recent storm-related issues, including a loss of power, that forced cancellation of its preview events, the new Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will open its doors to the public on Saturday.

  • Birds and Other Creatures
        Glenn Horowitz Bookseller will present “Billy Sullivan: Bird Drawings” and “Lucy Winton: Creatures,” beginning on Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.
        At the same time, the rare-book dealer will showcase its publication of “BIRDS,” a limited-edition book with Mr. Sullivan’s drawings and an essay by the author Margaret Atwood, a highly regarded birder and conservationist.

  •    One thing I learned about Larry Rivers in speaking to some of the people who knew him best throughout his life a few years ago is that the musician, artist, and bon vivant simply loved people. Be they friends and ever-evolving family, fellow artists, or a parade of girlfriends and wives, he never let a relationship go if he could help it.

  • Facing the Portrait at Ross
        The Ross School gallery in East Hampton will exhibit contemporary portrait paintings in a show opening tomorrow with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m.
        “Face Off” will feature the work of Sydney Albertini, Jack Ceglic, John Hardy, Christa Maiwald, and Christina Schlesinger. The show was organized by students in Jennifer Cross’s museum studies class — Julian Fava, Rebecca Hamilton, Jeheli Odidi, Hongjie Zhu, and Sun Zhehai.

  • Guild Hall will revisit the much praised and beloved photography of Fritz Leddy on Saturday with the opening of “Fritz Leddy, Part 2,” a new selection from the more than 2,000 negatives the former East Hampton Village police chief left behind
  •    “Inherit the Wind,” a play based on the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial and written in the 1950s in reaction to McCarthyism, has vital resonance for our own era, particularly on the eve of a national election. The tight and well-acted production by Michael Disher for Center Stage at the Southampton Cultural Center is well worth seeing, not only as a diversion but for its underlying message.

  • Retreat Art Benefit
        A juried art exhibition benefiting the Retreat will open at the Richard Demato Fine Arts gallery in Sag Harbor on Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. On view will be the work of 25 finalists chosen by Christina Strassfield and Kathryn Markel from more than 300 entries.

  •    The museum at Guild Hall is offering a bit of something for everyone this season with the opening of four shows in its various galleries.

  • His Gramercy Park apartment comes complete with a northern exposure to the Empire State Building, but it’s not a view Richard Rutkowski enjoys often.
        Whether in Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, Paris, Scotland, Japan, or even the house he inherited from his father in Water Mill, he has racked up a lion’s share of frequent-flier miles. As a director and cinematographer, husband, and father, the East Hampton native has had a vagabond existence for the past several years.

  • Living the Abstract Life

        “Life in the Abstract,” a group show featuring work by Bob Bachler, Dru Frederick, Barbara Groot, John Haubrich, and Fulvio Massi, will open on Saturday afternoon at Ashawagh Hall in Springs. A reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m.
