This weekend at the Remsenburg Academy, East End Arts will celebrate the long-awaited arrival of summer with an invitational art show featuring five artists from the East End.

Leo Revi of East Hampton, a self-described painter of light, captures the effects of sunlight in his paintings, drawing inspiration from impressionist painters such as Claude Monet and Winslow Homer.

Also using the area’s unique light quality, Riverhead’s Michael McLaughlin, a research analyst by trade, turned to photography when he found the East End and felt compelled to capture its natural beauty.

Sag Harbor’s Linda Capello, a figurative painter, will also show her work, which focuses on the body’s natural movement.

“What I am drawn to—what I draw—is the lyrical, sensual form; the body as icon of power and grace. I try to capture the body in that split second as movement stops—the turn of the head, flex of the arm, movement for the sake of movement, line for the sake of line,” Ms. Capello said.

A sculptor and mixed media artist out of East Quogue, Jonathan Pearlman transforms everyday objects into a new, imaginative form in his sculptures, with the goal that the viewer will discover the intrinsic beauty in the mundane.

Lucille Berril Paulsen of Water Mill will share her figurative paintings, which aim to create visual personality and capture “the attitude behind the face,” she said in a statement.

Here Comes the Sun will open on Friday, May 16 and run through Sunday, June 1. An artists’ reception is Friday, May 23 from 5 to 7 p.m.

East End Arts in Riverhead is hosting a free workshop for artists, “Every Artist Insured: Navigating Healthcare Reform,” at the East End Arts Carriage House on Monday, March 17 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Hoping to provide unbiased counseling on healthcare reform, the workshop will include a question and answer session as well as individual consultations. It is aimed to help artists of all disciplines understand the Affordable Care Act, what it means to them and what options are available for artists.

Questions that will be addressed include: What are the new options? How much will it cost? Am I eligible for a subsidy? Who is eligible for Medicaid? How do I apply? What is the new SHOP Exchange for small businesses? I’m a freelancer – how will this affect me? What are the penalties if I don’t have insurance?
