  •    Upon hearing that a Moran family show is opening in East Hampton, it is difficult not to prepare for disappointment. Despite the rich history the family has in this village and town, it seems that it is always the usual few things that are trotted out — a palette from the library here, some etchings there, a couple of paintings from Guild Hall. There is a decent representation to be had from the typical local vaults, but all items are a little too familiar at this point to be worth taking much notice of.

  •    With the first of the busy weekends of summer behind us, everyone could use a little peace and tranquillity in a well-tended garden. It would be even better to be in someone else’s Eden, where each little weed or withered blossom is not an invitation to get to work.

  • Markus at Ille
        Ille Arts in Amagansett will present Liz Markus, a New York City artist, in “11,” opening on Saturday evening at 6. For those who know the cult classic “This Is Spinal Tap,” the title indeed refers to the number the amplifiers go to. Just as in the movie, the paintings are intended to be “one louder.” There is little subtlety in the confident brush-strokes and saturated colors on unprimed canvases.

  •     Landscape Pleasures: Down the Garden Path, the Parrish Art Museum’s annual two-day horticultural event and fund-raiser, will be held this weekend.

  • New Drawing Room Site
        Emily Goldstein and Victoria Munroe have opened the Drawing Room at a new site at 66 Newtown Lane.
        Their first exhibition, on view through June 25, includes drawings, paintings, sculpture, and photographs by John Alexander, Jennifer Bartlett, Linda Etcoff, Sharon Horvath, Mel Kendrick, Laurie Lambrecht, Donald Sultan, Jane Wilson, and Jack Youngerman.

  • Thomas Moran Celebrated
        A Victorian garden party hosted by the East Hampton Historical Society will kick off the society’s exhibition “Moran: A Family Celebration of Home and Place,” on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. 
        Chilled tea, lavender lemonade, pound cake with rose petals, sugared violets, and even Victorian children’s games will be part of the festivities, which will be in the garden behind Clinton Academy. All are welcome and there is no charge for the exhibition or the garden party.

  •    Erudite and warm, droll but unaffected, Margery and Sheldon Harnick are like many successful couples who call the South Fork their second home. Their faces may not be immediately recognizable to hoi polloi, but they are secure in their accomplishments and here to relax, saving their socializing for theater events in the city.

  • Erica Jong was angry at times on Saturday night when she spoke at BookHampton’s East Hampton store. 

  •    The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons will open its thrift store doors on Saturday night for a preview cocktail party to showcase the work of several prominent New York designers who will transform its inventory of gently used treasures into rooms worthy of a style doyenne.

  •     The Bay Street Theatre’s first play of the summer season is Geraldine Aron’s “My Brilliant Divorce,” starring Polly Draper. This will be the American premiere of the play, which will start in previews on Tuesday and run through June 24.
        The production is directed by Matt McGrath, one of Bay Street’s artistic associates.
