The 15th iteration of "Love and Passion: Decadence of Distortion," a group exhibition organized by Karyn Mannix, will pop up at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in Bridgehampton on Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5. A reception will take place on Saturday from 5 to 8.

At Harper’s Apartment

“What You Do When You Don’t Go Outside,” a solo show of paintings by Brad Phillips, is on view at Harper’s Apartment, the Manhattan outpost of Harper’s Books of East Hampton, through April 24.

Mr. Phillips is a Canadian artist and writer whose work engages themes of eroticism, depression, and mortality. His paintings, which range stylistically from photorealist to text-based and conceptual, often refer to his daily life. 

Harper’s Apartment is at 51 East 74 Street, Apt. 2X, and open Thursday through Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. or by appointment.

A Correction

Because of an editing error, an article last week, “The Story Behind a Portrait,” misstated one of the people who visited the Wallace Gallery in 1998. It was Bouvier Beale Jr. and his wife, not his aunt.
