A painting by Gifford Beal helps open the new space of Bernard Goldberg Fine Arts in East Hampton.

Goldberg on the Move
Bernard Goldberg Fine Arts is reopening for the season Friday at a new location, 58 Park Place in East Hampton. Each week will feature a new exhibition of American Modernist paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts from 1900 to 1950. 

Among the artists to be featured throughout the summer are Alice Beard, Gifford Beal, John Marin, Guy Pene Du Bois, Childe Hassam, Louis Tiffany, and Samuel Yellin.

A reception will take place on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Rudolph Serra at Borghi
"Curling, Swirling Contours in Space," Rudolph Serra's upcoming exhibition at the Mark Borghi Gallery in Sag Harbor, consists of elegant, white sculptural forms made from carved surfboard foam and finished with water-based fiberglass.

The show, which also includes gestural drawings on paper, will be on view from Friday through July 14, with a reception set for Saturday from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

New From Hauser & Wirth
In 2018 in Somerset, England, the Hauser & Wirth gallery launched a new initiative, Make Hauser & Wirth, to present contemporary handcrafted design by leading artist-makers from around the world. The first presentation in the United States of Make Hauser & Wirth will open on Saturday at 50 Hampton Road in Southampton.

The works in the inaugural exhibition, "Of Making and Material," are informed by each artist's understanding of and response to his or her chosen material, from wood, ceramics, and metal to glass and concrete. 

The show will run through Sept. 10.  

Energy at Pace
"Calor Universal," an exhibition of works that examine themes of transcendence and transmutation across different mediums and styles, will open Saturday at the Pace Gallery in East Hampton and continue through July 17. The show explores the concept of "calor," which is understood, according to the gallery, as a vehicle for transforming material states.

The works are united by an energy that takes shape in landscapes, bodies, subjectivities, archetypes, and symbols. The participating artists are Marina Perez Simão, Bárbara Sánchez-Kane, Sonia Gomes, Heitor dos Prazeres, and Rosana Paulino.

Grids and Houses
An exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Jennifer Bartlett will open Friday at the Drawing Room in East Hampton and run through Aug. 8.

The show includes three examples from the early 1970s of her paintings on slick white metal surfaces, fabricated and silkscreened with gridded lines. Also on view are works from her "Homan-ji" series from the mid-'90s, which depend on an underlying structure of a light gray grid.

The gallery will also show five works that capture her signature motif, the house, whose elements she reduces to squares, triangles, and trapezoids.

Water, Water
"Holy Water," an exhibition of work by more than 20 contemporary artists from around the world, will open at Eric Firestone Gallery's Garage, 62 Newtown Lane in East Hampton, with a reception Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. It will continue through July 24.

The artists were invited to create works responding to the theme of water. Fishing and surfing, baptism and migration, ordinary marine life and fantastical sea gods and monsters are among the subjects.

Robert Harms at Madoo
Eleven paintings made by Robert Harms over the past two years will be on view in the summer studio at the Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack from Friday through Aug. 7.

Mr. Harms, whose studio overlooks Little Fresh Pond in Southampton, has been painting on the East End for more than 40 years, capturing the setting's subtle shifts in light and atmospheric effects. 

Streetscapes and Flowers
Solo shows of work by Deborah Brown and Max Jansons are on view at Harper's Gallery in East Hampton through July 20.

In "Haunted House," Ms. Brown depicts residential blocks in her Brooklyn neighborhood, rendered in colors and textures that transform the everyday into dramatic scenes. 

Fanciful flowers, stars, and bright moons populate the paintings in Mr. Jansons's "Paradise" exhibition. The forms hover between abstraction and representation, in what the gallery calls "a visual symphony in patterns."

Seagrass Meadows
"Earth Laughs in Flowers," an exhibition of Nedret Andre's paintings inspired by ocean life within seagrass habitats, opens Thursday at the Sara Nightingale Gallery in Sag Harbor and continues through July 13.

Today at 5 p.m., a conversation in the gallery between Ms. Andre and Bradley James Peterson, a professor of marine science at Stony Brook University's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, will address seagrass meadows, from both scientific and artistic perspectives.

Nature in Amagansett
"Earth/Sea/Sky," a group exhibition whose theme is conveyed by its title, will open at Grain Surfboards in Amagansett tomorrow with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. and continue through July 17.

Participating artists include Bobby Alan, Scott Bluedorn, Jen Charon, Idoline Duke, Giancarlo Feleppa, Aileen Florell, Erica Lynn Huberty, Joanlee Montefusco, Jane Parkes, Dalton Portella, Sally Richardson, Cindy Roe, Robert Rustmann, Richard Silver, Peter Spacek, Jay Sylvester, and Aaron Warkov.
    
For the Animals

ArtSprings Studio in Springs will open its second exhibition, "A Plea for the Animals," on Saturday. Each artist explores human relations to animals through print, drawing, painting, sculpture, weaving, and sound.

The show, which will continue through July 31, features work by Scott Bluedorn, Emily Brown, Idoline Duke, Candace Hill-Montgomery, Christa Maiwald, Russell Munson, James Elliott Shelton, Max Siebel, and Barbara Thomas. 

The studio is open by private appointment only. Visits can be arranged by emailing [email protected].

Egbert at Tripoli    
The Tripoli Gallery in Wainscott will open "Sky Years," an exhibition of paintings by Sally Egbert, with a reception on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. The simplified forms and horizontal bands of her paintings are conjured from landscapes in Italy, the Caribbean, and the East End.

Random papers from her studio, cut-up canvas shapes, and studio rags with markings find their way into Ms. Egbert's paintings, embellishing them with depths of form.

The exhibition will continue through Aug. 1.

Summer Heat
"Some Like It Hot," the summer show of work by members of the Artists Alliance of East Hampton, will be on view at Ashawagh Hall in Springs from Friday through Tuesday, with a reception set for Saturday from 4 to 6 p.m.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday through Monday; 10 to 4 on Tuesday.

Street Art and More
"Welcome Back!", a group exhibition of street art paintings, photography, and sculpture, will open at Roman Fine Art in East Hampton Friday and remain on view through Aug. 29.

The show includes original works and limited editions by Banksy, Jean-Michael Basquiat, Brainwash, Shepard Fairey, Ralph Gibson, Keith Haring, Invader, KAWS, Robert Longo, Ciara Rafferty, Russell Young, and others. 

A reception will be held on Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Two Shows at Markel
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in Bridgehampton will open two exhibitions Friday with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m.

New paintings by Sara Macculloch, on view in the downstairs gallery, have a sense of immediacy, capturing the essence of a place and her emotional connection to it.

Upstairs, "Reclamation," a group exhibition, was inspired in part by the war in Ukraine and the idea of reclaiming something lost, stolen, or forgotten. It includes work by Philippe Cheng, Jeremy Dennis, and Kevin Teare, among others. A portion of proceeds will benefit Direct Relief. 

The shows will run through July 25.

High Fashion and Nature
Photographs by Greg Lotus, whose work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Italian Vogue, GQ, and W Magazine, among others, are now on view at the White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton through July 24.

While the artist's celebrity portfolio is extensive, nature is a recurrent motif in his photography, which often mixes high fashion with rural or wild surroundings and exotic animals. 

A reception will be held on July 16 from 5 to 7 p.m.
