  • New Shows at Vered
        Vered Gallery in East Hampton has two shows on view in January. The gallery will continue the “Landscape/ Seascape” theme with works by Robert Dash, Wolf Kahn, Thomas Hart Benton, Balcomb Greene, Thomas Moran, and Milton Avery, among others. Mr. Kahn’s “Mammoth Vista,” a massive autumnal water view from 1992, is the centerpiece of that exhibit.

  • Those who like their Shakespeare productions out in the cool summer night air will be heartened to hear that a new festival is taking root through the Hamptons Independent Theatre Festival, more familiarly known as HITFest.

  • Ashawagh’s Illuminators
        “East End Illuminations,” a group show at Ashawagh Hall in Springs, curated by Cynthia Sobel, will feature landscapes, abstract watercolors, prints, mixed-media works, and photographs.

  •     It may have been a hay barn at one time, but Tracy and David Gavant and their daughters call it the “happy house.” The Amagansett building, just off Main Street, dates to the early 19th century, but with expansion and some updating, it feels quirky, but modern.

  •     Elizabeth Taylor’s diamonds weren’t the only items attracting interest at New York City auction houses last week. On Dec. 13, many well-heeled city and East End art aficionados gathered on the top floor of Sotheby’s Upper East Side auction house to view a small but strong collection of Jackson Pollock works rarely seen outside of the houses of the private collectors who own them.

  •      It was November in Northwest Woods and Walter Weissman’s front lawn was blanketed in crunchy tobacco-colored leaves. The cottage on Atlantic Street, which he shares with Eunice Golden, a painter, gives her the bright and airy studio space she needs and him his own space to work on his photography as well as a basement to work on his sculpture of constructed and deconstructed objects.

  • Frank Wimberley And East End Artists

        Beginning today, Spanierman Modern is showing both new work by Frank Wimberley and “Artists of the East End II,” which highlights works created from the mid-20th century to the present.
        Mr. Wimberley’s paintings are thick impastos of palette-applied, high-keyed colorful acrylic paint. Sometimes monochromatic and sometimes with sections or stripes, they all have a dynamic feel and a rich depth to them.

  • Its glossy, heavy stock and appealing, even sexy, Hollywood set-worthy pictures may have some mistaking the Main Street Historic District Guide for a more commercial endeavor.

  • New Show at Firestone
        Beginning Saturday, the Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton will present “Vincent Longo: Selected Works, 1960s and 1970.” Mr. Longo is a painter and printmaker who has been making art for almost six decades.

        The exhibit will include early paintings and works on paper influenced by Wassily Kandinsky and Abstract Expressionism and grid works inspired by Piet Mondrian.

  •     The photographs in the Spanierman catalogue say it all. There she is with Hans Hofmann in his Provincetown, Mass., studio, then with Willem de Kooning in Springs, in a photo shoot with Ad Reinhardt, arm in arm with Lee Krasner, or standing confidently with her hand on her hip on an East Hampton beach with some of the greatest artists of the period in a 1962 Hans Namuth photograph.
