  • It has been 16 years since supporters of East End Hospice first asked regional artists to create unique works of art from small, unadorned boxes that could be put up for auction to benefit the organization.
  • The Hamptons International Film Festival’s 2016 Summerdocs series will conclude on Aug. 27 at Guild Hall with a 7 p.m. screening of “A Perfect Candidate,” a 1996 documentary by R.J. Cutler and David Van Taylor about the 1994 Virginia senatorial race between Oliver North, above, and Charles Robb.
  • With Labor Day weekend just around the corner, patrons are flocking to Guild Hall for an innovative series of end-of-summer performances. Only a handful of tickets remain for “New York City Ballet On and Off Stage,” an intimate look at the ballet company hosted by Jared Angle, a principal dancer, tomorrow at 8 p.m. The evening will include commentary by Mr. Angle as well as excerpts from the company’s repertory performed by him and fellow dancers. Tickets are priced from $45 to $100, $43 to $95 for members.
  • The Montauk Artists’ Association will hold its 22nd annual juried fine art show on the Montauk Green tomorrow from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Christopher Engel, an artist and teacher who incorporates Jungian philosophy and techniques in his arts workshops, will open at the Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor, today through Sept. 1 at . A reception will be held Saturday afternoon from 4 to 5:30.
  • Minimal Art does not have the strong connection to the East End that landscape painting, Abstract Expressionism, or Pop do. And, with the exception of Dan Flavin, Minimalism does not characterize the production of artists who have lived and worked here since the mid-1970s. It might, therefore, come as a surprise that “Aspects of Minimalism: Selections From East End Collections” will open at Guild Hall in East Hampton on Saturday with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. and continue through Oct. 10.
  • Dan Welden, Gerry Giliberti, and Lois Youmans will show work created from alternative photographic techniques at the Alex Ferrone Gallery in Cutchogue. The show “Photo-Technic II,” will run from Saturday through Sept. 25, with a reception set for Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. A solo show of collages and accordion books by Eugene Brodsky will be on view from tomorrow through Sept. 15 at Studio 11 in the Red Horse Plaza in East Hampton. A reception will be held Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.
  • Comedy, R&B, hospitality, presidential politics, New Orleans party music, and Sith Lords will all touch down at Guild Hall in East Hampton this week, starting tomorrow at 9 p.m. when Jay Pharoah will perform his first comedy show on an East End stage.
  • The work of Hans Hokanson, the Swedish-born sculptor who lived in East Hampton from 1961 until his death in 1997, is in many notable public and private collections, but a massive work that would be at home in a museum or a sculpture park such as the Storm King Art Center, where his other work is represented, has remained out of view in a secluded East Hampton house for 45 years.
  • John Jonas Gruen, a writer, critic of several arts, composer, and photographer who for more than five decades chronicled this country’s loftiest cultural circles, died on July 19 in his apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
  • Jamie Patricof was disappointed he could not be in East Hampton for the opening of the film “Captain Fantastic” last Friday. Not because he hadn’t seen it; with Lynette Howell Taylor, he co-produced the film and had in fact seen it countless times. However, having spent summers and weekends here for much of his life, he fondly remembers the theater before it was a multiplex.
