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.”
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.
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.
This weekend promises to be hot and humid, with some stormy weather in the forecast, too. But you don't have to sit inside because there's something for everyone happening in every corner of town. Have a look:
So much is happening this weekend, and it seems it's all happening in Amagansett. The hamlet is hosting several events, including a Junior Lifeguard Tournament at Indian Wells, and the Amagansett Presbyterian Church Summer Fair.
