Oenophiles, rejoice! This year has been another excellent one for the Long Island wine industry. “It was a dream,” said Roman Roth, a partner and winemaker at Wolffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack.
Carone at Washburn
The Washburn Gallery in New York City will present “Nicolas Carone: Paintings From the 1950s” today through Jan. 17, with a reception tonight from 6 to 8.
Although Mr. Carone continued to paint until his death in 2010 at 93, it was during the ’50s that he was a central figure in the New York School. He bought a house in Springs in 1954 and split his time afterward between the city and the South Fork.
The Hamptons International Film Festival announced their annual awards Monday morning at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church.
The festival’s Audience Awards went to Stephen Frears’s “Philomena,” a drama starring Dame Judi Dench, and “Desert Runners,” Jennifer Steinman’s documentary about the 4 Deserts Race Series of 150-mile ultramarathons. Irene Taylor Brodsky’s “One Last Hug (…And a Few Smooches): Three Days at Grief Camp” won the Audience Award for Best Short.
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.
