Skating on Thin Ice … and Other Fond Memories

Posted on 19 December 2013

By Annette Hinkle I’ll start by saying I’ve never been a great ice skater — but I’ve always been an enthusiastic one.

We’re Thinking of You

Posted on 19 December 2013

Posted on 12 December 2013

The art of Reynold Ruffins is unmistakable. An illustrator by trade, a painter by passion, Ruffins was the artist behind the often quirky and always iconic imagery used in literature and posters advertising events for the now defunct organization CONPOSH (Coalition of Neighborhoods for the Preservation of Sag Harbor). This month, 20 or so of Ruffins colorful illustrations are on view in an exhibition at the John Jermain Memorial Library on West Water Street in Sag Harbor.

The author reads from her latest work, “Watchwork, A Tale in Time” at Canio’s Books this Friday with proceeds from book sales benefiting Peconic Habitat for Humanity.
