Abstraction at Drawing Room

“Rhythms of Abstraction,” work by Gustavo Bonevardi, Sue Heatley, Hector Leonardi, Vincent Longo, and Aya Miyatake, will open on Saturday at the Drawing Room in East Hampton and remain on view through March 22.

The show will include new paintings on panel by Mr. Bonevardi, mixed-media works on paper by Ms. Heatley, layered acrylic compositions by Mr. Leonardi, and precise geometric paintings by Mr. Longo. Ms. Miyatake will be represented by alabaster sculptures. Each body of work reflects a distinct approach to abstraction.

Blues in Bridgehampton

The White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton will show “Winter Blues,” artworks linked by the color blue, from Saturday through March 1. A reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.

The show will include work by Kat O’Neill, a photographer and mixed-media artist; Seek One, whose work is inspired by pop culture and graffiti; photographs of water by Lynn Savarese; extended-exposure photographs by Keith Ramsdell; paintings by Martha McAleer that are built up with acrylic and plaster, and aerial photographs by Dinesh Boaz.

Geiser at Springs Store

David Geiser has installed 11 artworks of various sizes and materials at the Springs General Store. On view through the end of the month, the show includes a number of what the Springs artist calls “nuggets,” or deep box-like pieces, several of which feature reishi or lingzhi mushrooms, which are used in traditional Chinese medicine.

Mr. Geiser’s diverse body of work ranges from his underground comics of the 1960s and ’70s to paintings, parchments and shields, and works on paper. Many of his textured works are built up from layers of shellac, pitch, tar, rope, and scrap wood.

 Sharing Art and Dreams

“Walls of Dreams II,” work by members of the Artists Alliance of East Hampton, will be on view at Ashawagh Hall in Springs from Saturday through Monday, with a reception set for Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m. In recognition of Martin Luther King’s Birthday, the alliance has invited members of the community to share their dreams and sample hot chocolate and other treats on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The exhibition will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 6 and Monday from 10 to 4.
