  • Frank Wimberley And East End Artists

        Beginning today, Spanierman Modern is showing both new work by Frank Wimberley and “Artists of the East End II,” which highlights works created from the mid-20th century to the present.
        Mr. Wimberley’s paintings are thick impastos of palette-applied, high-keyed colorful acrylic paint. Sometimes monochromatic and sometimes with sections or stripes, they all have a dynamic feel and a rich depth to them.

  • Its glossy, heavy stock and appealing, even sexy, Hollywood set-worthy pictures may have some mistaking the Main Street Historic District Guide for a more commercial endeavor.

  • New Show at Firestone
        Beginning Saturday, the Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton will present “Vincent Longo: Selected Works, 1960s and 1970.” Mr. Longo is a painter and printmaker who has been making art for almost six decades.

        The exhibit will include early paintings and works on paper influenced by Wassily Kandinsky and Abstract Expressionism and grid works inspired by Piet Mondrian.

  •     The photographs in the Spanierman catalogue say it all. There she is with Hans Hofmann in his Provincetown, Mass., studio, then with Willem de Kooning in Springs, in a photo shoot with Ad Reinhardt, arm in arm with Lee Krasner, or standing confidently with her hand on her hip on an East Hampton beach with some of the greatest artists of the period in a 1962 Hans Namuth photograph.

  •     Cynthia Daniels has a voice meant for radio. Low in timbre, rich and melodic, it soothes the ears like warm buttered rum. Her radio shows, “MonkMusic Radio” and “On the Air at Crossroads,” showcase East End musicians playing and talking about their music.
        Tomorrow, those musicians will join her and her co-host Bonnie Grice at Guild Hall at a fund-raising event for it and WPPB 88.3FM, the Southampton public radio station that broadcasts her shows.

  • Holiday Show
        The Romany Kramoris Gallery has a holiday exhibit on view that includes the work of Shey Wolvek, Isabel Pavao, Jude Amsel, Christopher Engel, George Wazenegger, Laura Rozenberg, and Maria Orlova. It focuses on small works of art, and there will be special pricing on artists of the week. The show is up through Jan. 8 at the Sag Harbor gallery.

    “Painter of Long Island”

  •     Japan has an early start in commemorating next year’s centennial of Jackson Pollock’s birth. Its Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art in Nagoya has opened an exhibit of some 60 of his works.

  •     Beginning tomorrow at 4 p.m., East Enders will have an opportunity to experience a classic story in a bygone way when Peconic Public Broadcasting at 88.3 FM presents a radio play of “A Christmas Carol,” produced and performed by members of the community.

  •     The Studio Playhouse’s latest production is “Four,” a group of four one-act plays written by Long Island playwrights. It will be performed from next Thursday through Dec. 3 at LTV’s Studio 3 in Wainscott.
        The community group, which was formed earlier this year in collaboration with LTV, performed “Destry Rides Again” in June. This time they have plays by Frank Tangredi, Michelle Murphy, and Hortense Carpentier.

  • Two on the Rise
        Davenport and Shapiro Fine Arts in East Hampton will show the work of two artists, Eddie Rehm and Emanuel Buckyar, beginning tomorrow with a reception on Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. Long Island painters, they are fresh to the scene but rising in reputation.
