Scott Bluedorn Solo
A show of drawings, paintings, collages, assemblages, and design objects by the East Hampton artist Scott Bluedorn will open at Clinton Academy in East Hampton with a reception on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. and continue through Dec. 13. Those wishing to attend the opening have been asked to R.S.V.P. to [email protected].

Mr. Bluedorn's work focuses on aspects of the natural world "through the lens of human disruption and psychological projection," according to the artist. 

The venue will be open Fridays through Sundays from noon to 5:30 p.m. 

Forty by Paton Miller
"Around the World in 40 paintings," an exhibition of recent work by Paton Miller, will be at the Oscar Molina Gallery in Southampton from Friday through Jan. 9. A reception will be held Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m., and a talk by the artist will happen on Nov. 27 at 2 p.m.

World travel, self-knowledge, identity, and a sense of place inform Mr. Miller's work, which explores materials and process through figure and landscape. Two large oil and epoxy paintings in the show feature a familiar motif: a man in a boat, but situated among a variety of drawn and painted objects that complicate any straightforward narrative or inhabitable space.

Benefit at Keyes Art
How to Draw a Lion is a program founded by the American artist John Platt to provide art classes for children in sub-Saharan Africa, raise money for their education with shows around the world, and create awareness about child welfare and conservation in the region. 

Keyes Art in Sag Harbor will hold a reception and fund-raiser for the organization on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. The evening will feature a silent auction of original paintings by young artists in the program.
