Along with a number of parties and events last weekend, Guild Hall's annual summer gala took place in East Hampton on Friday, starting at the museum and continuing with cocktails and dinner served at Mulford Farm. The evening marked the opening of Leo Villareal's new exhibition and Renee Cox's ongoing show in the newly renovated galleries. Ken Wyse was the evening's honoree.

Over in Southampton, the tents were up once more on Wickapogue Road across from Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. It was a signal on Saturday night that the annual summer party was in progress. The theme, A Night at the Colony Hotel, allowed Palm Beach snowbirds a chance to reconnect with their winter address and a popular pink landmark there. The evening's honorees were Audrey and Martin Gruss, John Paulson, Megan and Ken Wright, and Jay Lieberman.
