Art With Animal Attraction

Posted on 05 May 2015

Maybe it’s an inherent part of our human nature, but it seems very few people can resist images of very cute animals — or any animal for that reason. And this Saturday, art goers and animal lovers alike will have the opportunity to get an eyeful when the Richard J.

A New Book on East End Wine Goes “Behind The Bottle”

Posted on 05 May 2015

As the deputy editor of Edible East End and digital editor of Edible Long Island, Quogue resident Eileen Duffy has gotten to know a great deal about local food since she began writing about it back in 2003. But if you ask her, she’ll tell you that wine is her real passion. Which is why it’s probably no accident that Ms. Duffy’s new book is all about wine — East End wine, in particular.

Members Exhibition Brings Art & Community Together at Guild Hall

Posted on 29 April 2015

Even for professional artists, the dream of showing in a museum is rarely realized. But for East End locals, the opportunity is within reach. All it takes is a piece of artwork, residency and a membership to Guild Hall in East Hampton.
That’s because the annual “Artists Members Exhibition,” the oldest non-juried museum exhibition on Long Island, is also one of the few non-juried museum shows that is still offered. Better yet, the giant group exhibition at Guild Hall, which features the work of hundreds of East Enders every year, offers a grand prize of a solo show at the museum to the winner. This one-man or one-woman exhibition is offered regardless of whether the Top Honor recipient is a pro or amateur.

Celebrating Steinbeck: Sag Harbor’s Favorite Literary Resident

Posted on 27 April 2015

This weekend, Sag Harbor celebrates John Steinbeck, arguably its most famous resident, with a series of events including a community dog walk inspired by Charley, Steinbeck’s standard poodle and his stalwart traveling companion.

Put on Those Dancing Shoes — the Ailey Dancers are Coming to Town

Posted on 27 April 2015

Back in 2011, Southampton Village commissioned a study to determine the feasibility of creating an arts district. In the end, the firm that put together the study found that while the village was well represented when it came to offerings such as theater, music and the visual arts, what was largely missing was dance. Though she knew nothing about the study at the time, Laura Devinney, a board member of the Southampton Cultural Center (SCC), had noticed the lack of dance too.

The Addams Family Comes to Sag Harbor Tonight

Posted on 23 April 2015

A man wearing a white fur toga and an Einstein-esque wig is stroking something. Earlier, he was a tree, dancing around with branches alongside a flapper, a Native-American woman, a woman resembling Marie Antoinette, and others, all dressed eerily in white. The man is neither Socrates nor Einstein, but is in fact a “Cave Man Ancestor”—or, in reality, Pierson High School student Nick Knab. He is one of the many unnerving, yet strangely comedic, “ancestors” in “The Addams Family,” the latest theatrical production at Pierson High School.
