  • Last week’s announcement of the Academy Award nominations for 2015 films included a number with connections to the South Fork.
  • Don’t you just love permanent-collection shows? Even institutions as large as the Metropolitan Museum of Art never get to show all of their holdings at one time. Sometimes there are good reasons objects are not on display, but many times it just has to do with whether they fit a chosen theme or time period.
  • At a time when Iowa is dominating the headlines because of its imminent caucuses to help select the next president, the sobering differences between the mores and beliefs of middle America and those of the coastal elites could not be clearer.
  • This year’s Winter Salon at the Drawing Room gallery in East Hampton once again defies expectation and reminds us that installing an art exhibition is an art in itself. The directors’ great eyes for artists and visual relationships add up to a memorable visual experience — a collective POW!
  • Artwork by Peter Spacek, Jeff Muhs, Charles Waller, David Geiser, Anna Jurinich, Caren Sturmer, Michael Cardicino, and Rossa Cole will be featured in Mark Seidenfeld’s exhibition “America on Fire: A Politically Incorrect Show,” at The White Room Gallery.
  • There is a good deal of excitement at the Bay Street Theater in advance of its 25th season, so much so that Scott Schwartz, the artistic director, has already announced two of its upcoming summer productions just on the cusp of 2016.
  • For several years Daniel Jones has been photographing the East End. Based in Southold, he has captured the North Fork waterways as well as Cooper's Beach and Flying Point in Southampton.
  • With so much going on in the various galleries of Guild Hall’s museum right now, a permanent-collection show might seem like an afterthought. And yet “A Sense of Place,” the museum’s thematic exploration of its own vaults, takes up the largest space and is the most extensive.
  • You begin to see them everywhere this time of year, trees and shrubs bundled in burlap as if they are presents. During the holiday season, they almost look normal, as if nature was saving its gifts for a later time. “Don’t open me until March 31,” the wrappings seem to admonish.
  • After opening a second location for his Southampton-based Tripoli Gallery this year in East Hampton, Tripoli Patterson might have been expected to do a larger than usual version of his annual “Thanksgiving Collective.” But few could have foreseen just how large that vision would become.
