While the founding families of Shelter Island — the Sylvesters, the Havenses, the Nicolls — are well-known cornerstones of the island’s history, the slaves and Native Americans who built and inhabited the island are not as widely recognized. “Race and Ethnicity on Shelter Island: 1652-2000,” a new exhibition at the Shelter Island Historical Society, celebrates their role in the island’s history.
Workshops at the Parrish
The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill is offering two new workshops for artists of all skill levels during March. Linda Capello, an artist from Sag Harbor whose work focuses on the figure, will teach life drawing in a four-session series beginning Wednesday from 3 to 5 p.m. and concluding March 26. Participants will draw male and female models through gesture sketches and longer observation. The cost is $120 for four classes, $95 for Parrish members.
