  • Fall Showing of the Alliance
        The Artists Alliance of East Hampton will present its fall art exhibit beginning tomorrow at Ashawagh Hall in Springs. The exhibit of work by 46 of its members will continue through Sunday.
        A reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.
    New Art at Demato
        The Richard Demato Gallery in Sag Harbor will open a new show of work by Kyla Zoe Rafert on Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.

  • Chase and Ebert Show
        The Halsey Mckay Gallery in East Hampton will show an installation of new work by Louisa Chase and Sally Egbert beginning Saturday. According to the gallery, the exhibit of paintings and works on paper will display “lyrical, bold, and intuitive works that operate more as natural and corporeal extrapolations rather than traditional abstract expressions.”

  • As with others who have chosen the East End as an artistic retreat, Rafael Ferrer, 78, who lives in Greenport, made his way here in a circuitous route, one that reflected his own journey in making art.
        Beginning on Saturday, Guild Hall will present “Contrabando,” an exhibit that started out as an abridged version of a much larger show at El Museo del Barrio in New York last year and ended up being something else entirely.

  • Guild Hall will open three art shows this weekend with a reception on Saturday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. — exhibits of work by Drew Shiflett and Rafael Ferrer (see related story) and a permanent-collection show.
  • Hudson in New York
        The work of Judith Hudson, a part-time Amagansett resident, is now on view at Salomon Contemporary in West Chelsea. The show is called “Judith Hudson: Playboy Advisor” and includes works on paper from “Sex Advice Drawings.” This is a series that takes sex column dialogue and motifs and parodies them for maximum visual effect.

  • The Sixth Annual East End Black Film Festival, organized by the African-American Museum of the East End, will be presented tonight and tomorrow night at the Southampton Cultural Center and at the Parrish Art Musuem on Saturday from 12:30 to 9 p.m.
  •     Bring two artists together, both sculptural and structural in their approaches, and unleash them on an unusual and open space, giving them few limitations except that their materials must be locally sourced and no more than $40 in cost. It’s an interesting recipe and one that could have resulted in bedlam or, worse, boredom.

  • Focus on Materials
        The Southampton Cultural Center’s fall exhibit, which opens today, will turn a spotlight on materials in the work of several artists, whether they have created those materials or repurposed them for their art.

  • The poet and widow of the painter Fairfield Porter died on Oct. 10 at the age of 99 in Hampton Bays
  •     Matthew Broderick and even his interviewer, Alec Baldwin, revealed much about themselves and their careers in a freewheeling discussion on Saturday at Guild Hall that included some surprises and surprisingly candid insights on hits, flops, directors, and Marlon Brando. The talk was part of the Hamptons International Film Festival Conversations series.
