Nick Weber in Manhattan

“Night Turns,” an exhibition of paintings by Nick Weber of Amagansett, is on view at Harper’s Apartment, the New York City outpost of Harper’s Books of East Hampton, through Saturday. The show includes night landscapes, which a press release describes as “juggernauts of shade, reflection, and shared memory,” as well as nudes, portraits, and porn “rendered with detailed finesse.”

At 51 East 74th Street, Harper’s Apartment will be open today through Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.

Women Artists Speak

“Women Artists: Reshaping the Conversation,” a series of panel discussions organized by Toni Ross last summer at the LongHouse Reserve, was so popular that it will return this spring with three sessions at Nick and Toni’s restaurant in East Hampton beginning on Sunday morning at 11, when the speakers will be Ellen Phelan and Agathe Snow, artists, and Amei Wallach, an art critic and filmmaker.

Subsequent programs will take place at the restaurant on May 20 and June 3, and the series will continue at the LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton in August. The events are free, but reservations are required and can be made by calling 212-271-4283 or emailing
