Handmade for Neoteric
Neoteric Fine Art in Amagansett will open “Handmade” on Saturday. The show, which runs through Dec. 20, will be a holiday-themed exhibit of handmade artisan crafts and small works by local artists. The show emphasizes the personal human touch, according to Scott Bluedorn, the gallery director. Items will include jewelry, furniture, surfboards, home goods, designer objects, toys, trinkets, clothes, and other things small and large.
Absence of the Body
The Halsey Mckay Gallery in East Hampton will present “Habeas Corpus” beginning Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition will take the legal writ, which prevents unlawful detention, in its most literal sense — to produce the body. For the purposes of this show, however, it will subvert this right by removing the figure from these works.
