Art at Little Estia’s 

Estia’s Little Kitchen in Sag Harbor and the Shed Workspace, which pops up at that restaurant every Tuesday, will open an exhibition of work by Edwina Lucas and Georgia Suter on Sunday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The show will continue through March 20.

Ms. Lucas’s current body of work draws inspiration from the topography and natural light of the East End. She lives and works in Sag Harbor. Ms. Suter’s art examines the ways human beings occupy urban and rural spaces. 

Proceeds from sales will benefit the Estia’s Artist Fund, a new initiative organized by Colin Ambrose, the restaurant’s chef-owner, to offset the cost of materials and supplies for local artists.

On David Salle

“After Michelangelo (2005-2006),” three large-scale paintings by David Salle inspired by the Sistine Chapel, will be the subject of a discussion at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill between Rabbi David Whiman and Terrie Sultan, the museum’s director, Friday at 6 p.m.

The paintings were commissioned by the Italian collector Carlo Bilotti for his museum in the Borghese Gardens in Rome and donated by his widow to the Parrish, where they are now on view in the permanent-collection exhibition “Every Picture Tells a Story.”

Rabbi Whiman teaches a course titled “The Bible as Literature” at the John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor. The conversation with Ms. Sultan will focus on the biblical narratives depicted in the paintings and the artist’s contemporary interpretation. Tickets are $12, free for members and students, and advance reservations are required.
