  • Modernism at Vered
        Vered Gallery in East Hampton is currently recognizing the centenary of American Modernism with a show featuring the work of some of its earliest practioners. “Celebrating 100 Years of American Modernism 1913-2013” will be on view through Sept. 12.    

  •     Given space constraints, I will not be able to list every artist with work on view in the Springs Invitational at Ashawagh Hall and “Amagansett Art: Across the Years” at the Jackson Carriage House on Main Street in Amagansett. Even with several duplicates, it is sufficient to say that the talent contained in East Hampton Town alone is certainly a marvel to behold.

  •     Tomorrow, Guild Hall will hold its Summer Gala in conjunction with the opening of the Chuck Close exhibition at the museum. A cocktail party at the show will be followed by drinks, dinner, and dancing at the Bridgehampton estate of Louise and Leonard Riggio. A live art auction will also be part of the festivities.
        Tickets begin at $500 for the exhibition preview and cocktails, and $1,200 for the entire evening and can be purchased through Guild Hall’s special events department.

  •    Sometimes it can be hard to tell when a project or company has reached a tipping point. So often things can appear on the brink of a breakthrough and then fall just short of the last leap.

  •    Art was in the trees and in the air and everywhere at Devil’s Heaven, the 20th anniversary benefit at the Watermill Center on Saturday night, which raised $1.85 million for the center’s programs. Guests included Lady Gaga, Winona Ryder, Alan Cumming, and Marina Abramovic. Some of the many installations and performances will be recreated on Aug. 11, when the center will be open to the public for its free Discover Watermill day from 3 to 6 p.m. 
       

  • Hanging Art to Dry
        Guild Hall’s annual Clothesline Art Sale happens on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The annual event, which dates from 1946, features the work of nearly 400 artists and always attracts mobs of interested browsers and beginning collectors.
        Prices range from $50 to $2,000, with all proceeds split evenly between the artist and Guild Hall. The event is free.
