Marianne Weil at Ille Arts
“Walking in the Dark,” an exhibition of recent bronze and glass sculpture by Marianne Weil, will open at Ille Arts in Amagansett with a reception Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Ms. Weil’s abstract bronze and glass sculptures are created using the lost-wax casting process. She crafts each sculpture uniquely from the original wax, finishing and patinating the sculptures in her New York studio. Her recent sculpture combines cast and blown formed glass techniques assembled with cast bronze and copper.

The exhibition will run through Dec. 9, and Ms. Weil will discuss her work at the gallery on Nov. 29 at 3:30 p.m.

Maria Lombardi Paintings

The Amagansett Library will open an exhibition of paintings by Marie DiSunno Lombardi with a reception on Sunday at 2 p.m. Ms. Lombardi often combines several mediums, including acrylic, gouache, watercolor, pastels, India ink, and photography in a single painting. As can be expected of a lifelong South Fork resident, her subjects include local seascapes, landscapes, sunsets, beaches, and woodlands. The paintings will remain on view through November.

Group Show at Ashawagh

“Your World’s Perspective,” a group exhibition organized by Hampton Photo Art and Framing, will be on view at Ashawagh Hall in Springs on Saturday from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. and Sunday from 10 to 4. A reception is set for Saturday from 6 to 10:30.

Artists were asked to submit works that reflect their unique perception of their world. The show will include photography, paintings, and works on paper.

Figurative Realism at RJD

“Inside Out: Outside In,” an exhibition of work by 14 artists, will be on view at RJD Gallery in Bridgehampton from Saturday through Dec. 9. A reception will take place Saturday from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

The jurors Elaine Melotti Schmidt and Didi Menendez selected the artists from among 500 submissions. Dr. Schmidt is an art collector and co-founder of the Bennett Prize, which awards $50,000 to a female artist to create a solo exhibition of figurative realist paintings. Ms. Menendez is an art collector and editor-in-chief of PoetsArtists.

The call for entries encouraged artists to create contemporary and figurative representations that map their culture, upbringing, nature, education, and religious beliefs.

Moments of Jewish Life

Temple Adas Israel in Sag Harbor will open an exhibition of work by the late artist Lydie Egosi with a reception tomorrow evening at 5:30. A resident of Sag Harbor since 1964, she opened her studio and an art school on Main Street in 1969.

Egosi worked in many mediums, including gouache, tapestries, silkscreen serigraphs, pencil-pastels, pottery, and acrylic watercolors. What linked her work was its expression of Jewish themes, especially the joyous moments in Jewish life when people interact with ritual.

Shabbat services will follow tomorrow’s reception at 6. The show will run through March.
