  • Every year, South Fork artists garner new and increased attention at the various fairs and events that make up Miami’s Art Basel week. Whether in the grand booths of the Miami Beach Convention Center, in a funky satellite in Wynwood or North Beach, in a family museum in an old warehouse, in a pool cabana, or even in a hotel room, exhibitors from around the corner or around the world bring international exposure to our regional faves and allow us to see how they measure up to the giants of the current and historical marketplace.
  • ArtSolar will hold a reception and exhibition of work by nine East End artists on Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m. at 12 Koala Lane in East Hampton. Take a Thanksgiving ArtWalk on Saturday afternoon from 1 to 5. Twenty-five galleries from Southampton to Montauk will participate in the self-guided tour, and many will accept donations of food and/or money for local food pantries.
  • P­leasant Lane in East Hampton Village is an unassuming cul-de-sac off Newtown Lane between Mary’s Marvelous and the Suffolk County National Bank. Not the kind of street where you’d expect to find an alchemist at work in a studio hidden by dense privet, transforming molten beeswax, resin, and pigment into thickly painted surfaces from which she excavates an expansive range of swirling, mutating forms.
  • Artists and musicians are invited to bring their work down to the Woodbine Collection in Montauk on Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. The artwork will hang until Dec. 5. The Peter Marcelle Project in Southampton will open “Susan Ecker: Players, Places” with a reception on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m.
  • The Springs Community Theater Company will present “The Wizard of Oz” in seven performances at Guild Hall over the next two weekends, starting tomorrow at 7 p.m. The production will feature the music and lyrics created for the original MGM motion picture by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg and the book by John Kane, adapted in 1987 for the Royal Shakespeare Company in London.
  • The circus came to the Watermill Center on Saturday. There were acrobatics, juggling, and feats of strength and balance, all of which left the audience awestruck. But because Sweden’s Cirkus Cirkor is a contemporary circus with roots in experimental dance, theater, film, music, and visual art, the group’s open rehearsal of a work in progress was a mesmerizing, haunting, and entertaining evening quite unlike the circus most of us grew up with.
  • Anne Seelbach will teach private watercolor classes at the Victor and Mabel D’Amico house in Lazy Point, Amagansett, starting Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon. The Sara Nightingale Gallery in Water Mill will open concurrent solo exhibitions of work by Cara Enteles and Stephanie Brody-Lederman with a reception on Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.
  • On Saturday afternoon at 3, at Guild Hall, Christina Strassfield will interview Elizabeth Strong-Cuevas on the occasion of the publication by Abrams Books of “Strong-Cuevas Sculpture: Premonitions in Retrospect.” The Peter Marcelle Gallery in Southampton will show the work of Jim Gemake beginning Saturday, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.
