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.
While it might have been a more somber scene with the recent passage of Philip Clark Haffner, the father of two of the Bonac Tonic founding members Grant and Carly Haffner, the art was still exuberant. A 1974 portrait of Haffner by Lori Weiss was on view in the gallery as a memorial and celebration of his life.
In addition to works by the Haffners, other artists on view include Arrex, Maeve D’Arcy, Christine Lidrbauch, and Scott Gibbons. A boisterous scene included wives, sisters, children, and Baxter the dog. The show will be on view on weekends through March 8.
