Two on the Rise

    “We were intrigued by the collaboration between two artists with distinct styles, one almost disturbingly energetic, and the other . . . calming for all its now almost classical allusions to the AbEx tradition,” said Leonard Davenport, a partner in the gallery.
    The exhibit is on view through Dec. 30.

AbEx Meets Digital
    Beginning on Saturday, Andrew Hart Adler and Carolyn Beegan will show their collaborative work at the Arthur T. Kalaher Fine Art gallery on Job’s Lane in Southampton. Their work joins oil painting and digital photography.
    Mr. Adler, an Abstract Expressionist painter, worked with Willem de Kooning in the 1970s. Ms. Beegan is an oil painter but a specialist in digital imaging as well. Together their work becomes a hybrid that balances elements of each.
    A reception will be held on Saturday from 4 to 8 p.m.

Death Talk in Bridge
    A gallery talk on the exhibit “In Memory of: An Exhibition on Death & Mourning in Victorian America” will be given on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Bridgehampton Historical Society’s Corwith House.
    The exhibit and the talk by Julie Greene, the curator, focus on the effect that Queen Victoria’s extended period of mourning in the late-19th century had on this side of the Atlantic. According to the historical society, the queen’s popularity among her subjects and Americans led to a “cult of mourning” that continued even after her death.
    Ms. Greene’s talk will explore the customs and practices surrounding death and mourning during those years. The exhibit will remain open through February. Another talk will be given on Dec. 30 at 5 p.m.
