  •     It wasn’t necessary to go to the jammed opening-night festivities at ArtHamptons and artMRKT Hamptons to grasp that the fairs may have finally “arrived,” despite the continued lack of attention from A-list galleries and dealers.

  •     Although absent from the Main Street scene of Southampton Village for some time, Stephan Keszler is back at the old power plant on North Sea Road, where he presented the street artist Banksy in 2011.
        Back then, the property was extremely raw and reminiscent of the untouched gallery spaces in old warehouses and facilities in Manhattan’s West Chelsea. It has been cleaned up a lot as the new Keszler Annex, but the interior retains the industrial feel that made it an ideal backdrop for the gritty and controversial wall pieces of Banksy.

  • Two New on View
    At Halsey Mckay
        Halsey Mckay Gallery in East Hampton is showing “Mornings, Sentimental, Wonder & Acoustic Shadows,” works by Patrick Brennan, and “Two Wholes” by Brie Ruais through July 31.

  • A Guild Hall exhibition is a snapshot of what has occupied the self-effacing artist most recently. Almost all of the paintings were completed in 2012 and 2013, some practically drying on the walls.
  • ArtHamptons and artMRKT opened on Thursday night to crowds happy to take in the art in the various gallery booths and other related performances and activities.
  •     Mid-July has become art fair season on the South Fork, with three fairs running in rapid succession, two this weekend in Bridgehampton and another beginning July 25 in Southampton.
        Both ArtHamptons and artMRKT Hamptons will open their doors tonight with previews and cocktail parties for their own exhibitors, sponsors, media partners, honorees, events, and beneficiaries.

  • More Aycock, Now
    In East Hampton

        The “Alice Aycock: New Works on Paper” exhibition will open on Saturday at the Drawing Room in East Hampton.
        Ms. Aycock came of age as an artist between the Modernist and Post-Modernist eras in the 1970s. She is known for her large-scale installations, public art projects, and outdoor sculptures. As the gallery notes, she is a conceptualist at heart and her drawings are driven by language, memory, fiction, and scientific and philosophical extremes.

  • “DNA & Dust”
        QF Gallery in East Hampton will present “DNA & Dust,” work by Heather Dewey-Hagborg and Paul Hazelton, beginning Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.

  • Essentially a retrospective in paper and maquettes, a major show of work by Alice Aycock is on view at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill and New York City though July 13.
  • Anne Chaisson has been director of the Hamptons International Film Festival since November, but she has been associated with the organization for more than a decade.
