New at Halsey Mckay
The Halsey Mckay gallery in East Hampton will open a show of paintings by two artists, Ann Pibal and Nathlie Provosty, and a solo exhibition of paintings by Steven Cox on Saturday.
Both Ms. Pibal and Ms. Provosty, who have homes in Brooklyn, use line, form, and sumptuously worked surfaces to create distinct visual languages.
Filmed in Bellport over a period of 18 days for $700,000, "The Maid's Room" has the look of an expensive Hollywood production. “We did everything we could to make a local film, but not a small film,” says Michael Walker, its director.
