Nature Times Two
“East/West,” an exhibition of work by Annie Sessler and John Todaro, will be on view at Ashawagh Hall in Springs Saturday and Sunday. The title of the show reflects Ms. Sessler’s use of the Japanese craft tradition of Gyotaku, fish printing, and Mr. Todaro’s travels to the American West. Nature is subject and inspiration for both artists.
In recognition of National Public Gardens Day on Friday, Bridge Gardens in Bridgehampton, the LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, and the Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack will offer a day of free one-hour guided tours. Space for this program is limited, and reservations, which can be made by calling 283-3195, are required.
