Saturday will be a busy day at the Eastville Community Historical Society in Sag Harbor, where an artist's reception kicks off a new exhibit in the early afternoon and the annual fish fry cookout will take place later in the day.

"The Age of Allure," a solo show of portraits by Sabina Streeter, will open with a reception beginning at noon.

Ms. Streeter, who lives in Sag Harbor, was invited by Georgette Grier-Key, the society's director, to create a series of portraits of 19th-century Black and Native American residents of the Eastville community. The images are based on tintypes found beneath the floorboards of the former studio of the photographer W.G. Howard.

Her art reclaims "what we most have in common and cherish [and] the beauty of the arts and all it provides to our well-being," Eastville said in an announcement.

The Eastville Community Historical Society will also hold its annual fish fry cookout on Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m. at its Heritage House on Hampton Street. Attendees must wear masks and observe social distancing protocols; takeout will be available. The cost is $25. Tickets can be purchased at
