Jules Feiffer Revisits His Long Lost Youth in “Kill My Mother”

Posted on 16 March 2015

You’d think that with an Academy Award, a Pulitzer Prize, two Obies and a Guild Hall Lifetime Achievement Award under his belt (the latter occurring just last week), cartoonist/playwright/screenwriter/filmmaker Jules Feiffer wouldn’t be afraid to try anything. But you’d be wrong. Up until last summer, Mr. Feiffer, who just turned 86, had never tackled the noir style comic, that genre of crime literature where tough talking detectives hook up with sassy dames who aren’t quite on the level and together, they solve murders in bleak, black and white setting. It’s a genre Mr. Feiffer has loved since he was a child.

Joe Zucker: In Consideration of the Spider

Posted on 16 March 2015

In 1992, artist Joe Zucker traveled to Steamboat Springs, Colorado where he worked with Riverhouse Editions to create a series of prints based on his exploration of the spider.

Race Relations, Then and Now, Explored in “Clybourne Park”

Posted on 09 March 2015

There have been numerous stories making headlines in recent weeks that offer dramatic evidence of just how far this country has come in terms of race since the 1960s. But in the past year, there have been many more news stories that paint quite a different picture — one that offers a stark reminder of just how far we still have to go. This weekend, Hampton Theatre Company opens “Clybourne Park,” Bruce Norris’s 2010 Pulitzer Prize winning play about white flight and gentrification in a Chicago neighborhood. The play examines the state of race relations in America both then and now — and it couldn’t be more timely.

Spring Training: Extending the Reach (and the Season) for Artists & Writers….

Posted on 09 March 2015

Every August, a group of enthusiastic, if eclectic, softball players gather at Herrick Park in East Hampton for the annual Artists & Writers Celebrity Softball Game. The game started in 1948 with the likes of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning (whose affiliation was obvious) facing off against authors like James Jones and Willie Morris. This year’s Artists & Writers game (the 67th) takes place on Saturday, August 15 in East Hampton. That’s still months away, which is why Artists & Writers has opened the season early with “Spring Training,” an exhibition on view now at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts Gallery in Bridgehampton that highlights the considerable off-field talents of many of the players — well, half of them at least.

Rogers Mansion: 375 Years of Family Living

Posted on 03 March 2015

In recent months as Southampton Town was gearing up to celebrate its 375th anniversary, Emma Ballou, curator at the Southampton Historical Museum, was busy conferring with museum director Tom Edmonds about what sort of exhibition they should create at the Rogers Mansion to tie into the event.
