  •     This year’s Hamptons Designer Showhouse to benefit Southampton Hospital seemed to eschew some of the dourness of recent years in exchange for some blithe hopefulness that a rising tide on the South Fork will raise all the boats in the harbor, whatever their size.

  •     Bryan Hunt’s exhibit at Guild Hall is a study in contradictions and the subtleties of form, even when the sculptures top out at 12 feet tall and 600 pounds. The last chance to see the show is this weekend, and it would be a pity to miss the sculptures, which have come into being in his studios in East Hampton and New York City and are regularly shown nationally, but not as frequently here.

  • Kuntz in London
        Doug Kuntz, a photographer whose work has appeared many times in The Star, has photos on view in London through Oct. 2 in an exhibit called “H2O.”
        Mr. Kuntz’s images will be included with that of Ekkehard Altenburger, Crispin Chetwynd, Keith Collins, Richard Elliott, Stephen Farthing, David Ferry, Derek Jarman, Robin Jenkins, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, Shoko Maeda, Oborn & Reekie, Tim O’Riley, Emily Rubner, and Donald Smith.

  •     The 2011 Great Chefs Dinner to benefit Hayground School, now in its seventh year, will be held on Sunday with its usual roster of marquee chefs from near and far — plus the designer and television personality Isaac Mizrahi, who joins as a surprise guest cook.
        This year, the art auction that accompanies the culinary action is drawing as much buzz as the tastings and wine pairings.

  • For those paying attention, this summer will bring not one, but two new rock festivals to the South Fork.
  • By the end of 2009, it seemed all print media companies were on the verge of collapse. Bankruptcies and layoffs were the common headlines generated by activities happening in the very newsrooms reporting them
  •     Anyone who happened to be going through Bridgehampton recently may have noticed a bit of hoopla and some giant tents taking up prominent landscape — those of ArtHamptons two weeks ago and ArtMRKT Hamptons last weekend.

  • Studio Tour Weekend   
    The Artists Alliance of East Hampton will hold its 26th annual studio tour Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. South Fork artists from Ted Asnis to Athos Zacharias and 30 more in between will participate. A preview exhibit, allowing “tourists” to check the work of artists whose studios they may want to visit, will be held at Ashawagh Hall in Springs tomorrow from 5 to 8 p.m.

  • The Hamptons Institute will return to Guild Hall in its second iteration beginning tomorrow with “The Producers,” a panel discussion focused on the changing and differing roles of theater producers in the high-stakes real estate of Broadway.
  • Tommy Mottola has entered the East Hampton art community with a space on Main Street called Gallery Valentine and both guns blazing.
