  •    Sometimes a play needs a grand vision. Sometimes it needs a minimal touch. But sometimes, it needs both. Josh Perl and Peter-Tolin Baker have brought both to bear on a late Tennessee Williams play “In the Bar of a Toyko Hotel,” which opens next Thursday in Bridgehampton.

  • Groovy in Springs
        Music and art will merge at Ashawagh Hall this weekend with the second annual presentation of “Art Groove,” an exhibition of work by 14 artists paired with music with a dance beat, including Motown, disco, and hip-hop styles.

  • New at the Monkey
        The Crazy Monkey Gallery in Amagansett will feature work by three members of its artists cooperative — Barbara Bilotta, Lance Corey, and Wilhelmina Howe — beginning tomorrow.

  • New Work at Vered
        “Ray Caesar: Selected Works” will open at the Vered Gallery in East Hampton tomorrow. The exhibition features the artist’s work in Maya, a three-dimensional modeling software used for digital animation effects in film and games.

  • Body on View at Ashawagh
        “Body of Work VII” will revisit the figurative work of several members of this group of artists, including Rosalind Brenner, Linda Capello, Michael Cardacino, Cynthia Loewen, Anthony Lombardo, Bob Markell, Frank Sofo, and Margaret Weissbach. In addition, four other artists have been invited to exhibit with the group for the first time — Janet Culbertson, Tina Folks, Douglas Reina, and Frederick Paxton Werner.
