The snow may have called off last week's opening reception of the show "Dealer's Choice" at Kathryn Markel Gallery last weekend, but it didn't stop some, like April Gornik, from popping in on Jan. 4 to see what Arlene Bujese was up to in the space on Main Street in Bridgehampton.
Ms. Bujese said on Friday in the gallery that she met Ms. Markel at an opening last summer and she offered her the space during the month of January. She said she welcomed the opportunity to bring some of her own pieces from a stable of artists she has represented for many years and a few new ones from younger generations into a new space for an informal, salon-style presentation.
While parting with many of these gems might be difficult for her, she said she wouldn't mind using the proceeds to purchase new pieces from the same artists. Two bronze sculptures by Arline Wingate will be sold to benefit East End Hospice at 100 percent of their price. "It was something Arline would have appreciated," Ms. Bujese said. For those interested in the sculptures, they will also be on the Hospice's website if they do not sell in the gallery.
The reception will take place this Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m. The show will be open Saturdays and Sundays through Feb. 2. A review will run in next week's paper.
