  • The East End Hospice will be a beneficiary of a weekend-long sale and exhibition of paintings by Lewis Zacks at Ashawagh Hall in Springs.
  • Thursday mornings at The Star are a time to regroup. The prior week’s news and features have been neatly filed, edited, printed, and bundled. The slate is clean.

  • Amy Goldman will present and sign copies of her “Heirloom Harvest” book of daguerrotypes at Marders in Bridgehampton on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. Artisanal pizza made with organic vegetables and ingredients will be served.

  • The Southampton Cultural Center's “Material Matters” is the latest exhibition that culls an unusual and thoughtful assemblage of artists and genres.
  • According to John Gruen, there are not many photographs of his wife, Jane Wilson, and Jane Freilicher together. As the unofficial documentarian of the East End faction of the New York School, he would know. But he has also testified in his autobiography to their friendship and artistic kinship, often painting together in the early years of their South Fork residency.
