Reductive yet expansive, abstract yet universally real, and with seemingly infinite possibilities, the unique tapestries of 3.25-by-4.25-inch Polaroid prints John Messinger has been making for the past year should, one might think, keep him occupied for many more to come.
An Early Spring
Painters looking for an early spring might enjoy Lois Bender’s art classes at Bridge Gardens in Bridgehampton beginning in March.
Spring Art Journeys: Sketching and Painting Nature from “skyscapes to flowerscapes” will be offered in four sessions, every other Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. beginning March 2. The first class will be Watercolor: Warm-up Skills to learn the basic skills in grid-style exercises. The class will cover washes, brushstroke use, and color blending.
