Posted on 11 May 2015

When Bruce Jenner appeared on 20/20 to talk about his transition from male to female, he transformed an issue that had largely been considered a joke into a serious discussion. For many, gender fluidity and transgenderism is seen as the last frontier in the pursuit of equal rights in this country — and for Sag Harbor photographer Lindsay Morris, it’s an issue whose time has come. Her new book, “You Are You,” documents a camp where gender-nonconforming children are allowed and encouraged to be themselves.

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.

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.
