The ninth annual “Love & Passion” art exhibition, typically scheduled around Valentine’s Day, celebrated its opening a week late this year, after a snow storm on Feb. 15 led to its postponement to Saturday. The delay did not deter the South Fork community of artists, artisans, and assorted characters from coming out to celebrate.
The South Fork’s next generation art scene found another outpost at Kathryn Markel’s gallery. Bonac Tonic retook the walls for another winter pop-up exhibition at the Bridgehampton space with the opening of “Phenomena” on Saturday night.
The Hanptons International Film Festival brought not just films but parties, tributes, panels, roundtables, awards, and chats both before and after screenings. Here are jus a few of the many, many moments that made up the film festival this weekend.
