Group Show at Halsey Mckay

“Her Wherever,” an exhibition organized by Sara VanDerBeek and Sara Greenberger Rafferty, will open at Halsey Mckay in East Hampton with a reception Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m. and continue through Nov. 13.

Artists represented are Michelle Abeles, Becca Albee, Rachel Foullon, Anya Kielar, Annabeth Marks, Howardena Pindell, Julie Pochron, Eileen Quinlan, Ms. Rafferty, and Ms. VanDerBeek.

In a statement, the curators said the show “will include work which reflects the space where the image meets domestic and soft-edged labor, and process is politic. . . . In the works, process translates into a processing of information, feelings, and materials.”


Pinajian Works on Paper

The Lawrence Gallery in East Hampton will show “Arthur Pinajian: Works on Paper” from today through Oct. 26. A reception will take place Saturday evening 6:30 to 9. While the exhibition will focus on works on paper, particularly midcentury abstraction, it will also include oils and abstracted landscapes.

Pinajian was a colleague and friend of many of the New York School artists, including de Kooning and Gorky, but he was reclusive and put little effort into promoting or showing his art. After his death in 1999, five decades of artwork were found in a Bellport cottage he shared with his sister, whom he had implored to dispose of it. However, a cousin rescued the work of the artist, who was completely unknown during his lifetime.


Women Painting Women

The fourth iteration of “Women Painting Women: Our Collective Conscience,” a juried show of work by 17 women, will open Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at RJD Gallery in Sag Harbor. The show, which will continue through Nov. 20, will include work by 14 of the gallery’s female artists.

“Nine East End Realists,” an exhibition organized by Eileen Dawn Skretch, an East End landscape painter, will be on view from Saturday through Monday at Ashawagh Hall in Springs. A reception will be held Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.

The show will include paintings from landscapes to still lifes by Emma Ballou, Aubrey Grainger, Ann Lombardo, Keith Mantell, Lucille Berrill Paulsen, Leo Revi, Joanne Rosko, Ms. Skretch, and Pamela Thomson. The gallery will be open Sunday and Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 11 to 8.


Michelle Stuart in London

London’s Parafin Gallery will present the work of Michelle Stuart, an internationally recognized artist for five decades, at Frieze Masters, which will be on view at Regent’s Park from today through Sunday. The exhibition will feature work from the 1970s and early 1980s with a focus on drawing, sculpture, place, and memory. Ms. Stuart lives and works in Amagansett and New York City.


Salon at Drawing Room

The Drawing Room in East Hampton will present “Autumn Salon,” featuring works by 11 artists, from tomorrow through Nov. 28. The exhibition will include painting, sculpture, prints, works on paper, and photography.

The paintings of Vincent Longo, Antonio Asis, and Christopher French are linked by an engagement with geometry. Both Jack Youngerman and Mel Kendrick have developed rich vocabularies of essential forms and structure, as evident in works on paper and sculpture.

Sue Heatley’s prints celebrate patterns and rhythm, while Ms. Bartlett’s silkscreen integrates textile design, still life, and abstraction. Raja Ram Sharma works in the tradition of Indian miniature painting, while Kathryn Lynch’s paintings capture the scenic panoramas seen from her house on Shelter Island.

Adam Bartos will exhibit photographs taken in 1981 at an ornate Victorian-era villa in Gujarat, India. Terra-cotta bas-reliefs from 1962 by Costantino Nivola depict the beach at Louse Point in Springs.


Art and Music Lounge in Sag

The Monika Olko Gallery in Sag Harbor will be the site of an Art and Music Lounge from today through Monday, from noon to 10 p.m. daily, in celebration of the Hamptons International Film Festival. 

Natalie Kates, a New York City curator, has organized the exhibition “The Art of the Narrative,” featuring the work of eight visual artists, while Kris Gruen has set up performances by four musical groups. The idea behind the lounge is that it will be a hub for festivalgoers to relax between screenings while surrounded by art and music.
