  •     The Hampton Library in Bridgehampton has initiated a community outreach program that will offer free screenings of films from prior Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festivals on the third Wednesday of the month. The first offering, scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m., will be “Patriocracy.” Directed by Brian Malone, the 2012 film explores the extreme polarization in America, which, it posits, prevents the country from tackling its most serious problems.

  •     Classical piano, opera, and folk are the musical offerings this week at the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton. On Sunday at 3 p.m., Misuzu Tanaka, a prizewinning concert pianist, will perform a program of works from the height of the Romantic period to the early 20th century, including Chopin’s Scherzo No. 4 in E major, Op. 54, Bartok’s Scherzo no. 4 in E major, and Schumann’s Sonata No. 3 in F minor, Op. 14, originally titled “Concerto sans Orchestre.” A reception for the artist will follow.

  •     Tilman Hecker, a resident artist at the Watermill Center, will present “Midnight,” a work in progress for video, light, and three performers, Saturday at 8 p.m. Though the project is inspired by Mozart’s musical scores, his music is not part of the event. Instead, the artists will visualize Mozart’s music through four elements: video, lighting, and the movement of two performers, which correspond to piano, voice, winds, and strings in Mozart’s compositions.

  •     Audience participation would be inadvisable during “God of Carnage,” Yasmina Reza’s play about the gradual descent into vituperation and recrimination of two sets of parents discussing an altercation between their children. The play will conclude the 2013-2014 season of the Hampton Theatre Company at the Quogue Community Hall with a run from May 22 through June 8.

  •     A free staged reading of Bertolt Brecht’s 1939 play “A Life of Galileo” will be held at the Montauk Library on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Directed by Josh Gladstone, artistic director of the John Drew Theater, the reading will take advantage of a new translation that makes the play’s dialogue relevant to contemporary issues of humanism versus fundamentalism.

  •     The fifth annual Montauk Music Festival will begin today with an opening party at Gurney’s Inn and continue through the weekend.

        The event offers some 100 artists playing at every possible venue in Montauk. A full list and schedule of the performers is available on the festival website, themontaukmusicfestival.com. Almost every style of music, with the exception of classical, can be heard: alternative, rock, folk, pop, Americana, reggae, blues, jazz, bluegrass, flamenco, rap, hip-hop, country, and metal.

  • The Artist in Wartime
        So how many former art school deans do you know who were present when the Allies stormed the beaches at Normandy? Here’s one in your backyard: Alex Russo, once of the Corcoran College of Art and Design in the nation’s capital, still professor emeritus at Hood College in Frederick, Md., and on Saturday alighting at Guild Hall to read from his new book, “Combat Artist: A Journal of Love and War.”

  • Puppets in Montauk

    A prince, a princess, a chipmunk, and missing jewels each play a role in the Montauk Library’s original puppet show, “Lost Jewels and Tree Nuts,” which will be presented on Saturday. The show, created over the course of several sessions at the library, runs from 3 to 4 p.m. and is open to all comers.

     

    For Mom?

  • The National Association of Letter Carriers will hold its annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive on Saturday, and “participation couldn’t be easier,” the president of the association said on its website.

    Postal patrons have been asked to do their part by placing bags of nonperishable food by their mailboxes before their letter carriers’ scheduled pickup time on Saturday. The bags will be collected and delivered to food distribution charities. This is the 22nd year for the food drive, and letter carriers across the country are taking part.
