  • Christopher French will have an exhibition of his new work at the Drawing Room in East Hampton. In his new work, symmetry has given way to pointed shafts of refracted color that surge across the canvas from distinct vortices like beams of colored light. The show will open tomorrow and remain on view through Oct. 3. The Southampton Artists Association’s annual Labor Day show is on view through Sept. 11 at the Southampton Cultural Center. A reception will take place Saturday from 4 to 6 p.m.
  • The one-acre wooded lot overlooking Hog Creek in Springs where Peter Gamby and Julie Small-Gamby live feels secluded from its neighbors. It was an old spec house, Mr. Gamby said during a recent visit, and it wasn’t very expensive. When they bought it, in 1987, “the structure was in terrible shape, the creek was covered with ice, I couldn’t even tell how big the creek was, but Peter said, ‘Location, location,’ ” Ms. Small-Gamby recalled. The couple quickly fixed it up. The house has west-facing windows that overlook the creek, and they eventually added a separate studio for Ms. Small-Gamby, an artist who has been exhibiting her work for more than 30 years and whose resumé includes the Parrish Art Museum’s 2011 “Artists Choose Artists” exhibition and Guild Hall’s “East End 10.” About 13 or 14 years ago, they decided to enlarge the house and began talking to different architects. They would stop, then start again, never quite pulling the trigger until two and a half years ago. “I knew
  • Some artists discover their medium and stick with it. Throughout most of her career, Carol Ross has shifted artistic gears with apparent ease between wood reliefs, metal sculpture, drawing, and painting. “I’m an artist who changes a lot,” she said during a recent conversation in Guild Hall’s sculpture garden, where her large aluminum pieces can be seen through Oct. 1. A selection of her wood reliefs is also on view in Guild Hall’s Wasserstein Family Gallery.
  • When Jill Musnicki says “I’m very much into nature,” it’s no wonder. A fourth-generation East Ender whose ancestors were Bridgehampton and Sagaponack farmers, the local terrain was her birthright. For the past five years, that legacy has informed her artwork.
  • See the mysterious paintings of Jennifer Cross at the Peter Marcelle Project in Southampton. Haunting interiors and landscapes, inhabited not by people but by dreamlike objects and images suggest narratives and pique the imagination. A reception is set for Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. An exhibition of painting and sculpture by Jeff Muhs will open today at Monika Olko Gallery in Sag Harbor and continue through Sept. 13. A reception will be held Saturday evening from 6 to 8.
  • It has been 16 years since supporters of East End Hospice first asked regional artists to create unique works of art from small, unadorned boxes that could be put up for auction to benefit the organization.
  • The Hamptons International Film Festival’s 2016 Summerdocs series will conclude on Aug. 27 at Guild Hall with a 7 p.m. screening of “A Perfect Candidate,” a 1996 documentary by R.J. Cutler and David Van Taylor about the 1994 Virginia senatorial race between Oliver North, above, and Charles Robb.
  • With Labor Day weekend just around the corner, patrons are flocking to Guild Hall for an innovative series of end-of-summer performances. Only a handful of tickets remain for “New York City Ballet On and Off Stage,” an intimate look at the ballet company hosted by Jared Angle, a principal dancer, tomorrow at 8 p.m. The evening will include commentary by Mr. Angle as well as excerpts from the company’s repertory performed by him and fellow dancers. Tickets are priced from $45 to $100, $43 to $95 for members.
  • The Montauk Artists’ Association will hold its 22nd annual juried fine art show on the Montauk Green tomorrow from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Christopher Engel, an artist and teacher who incorporates Jungian philosophy and techniques in his arts workshops, will open at the Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor, today through Sept. 1 at . A reception will be held Saturday afternoon from 4 to 5:30.
  • Minimal Art does not have the strong connection to the East End that landscape painting, Abstract Expressionism, or Pop do. And, with the exception of Dan Flavin, Minimalism does not characterize the production of artists who have lived and worked here since the mid-1970s. It might, therefore, come as a surprise that “Aspects of Minimalism: Selections From East End Collections” will open at Guild Hall in East Hampton on Saturday with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. and continue through Oct. 10.
