Okay, you win. An expansive list of weekly art reception openings was requested by readers. Three To See will present Hamptons Art Hub picks for weekend art viewing. Art Round Up will provide an expanded selection of art opening options. Here's the first edition:
KATHRYN MARKEL FINE ARTS - "Water Color" - A solo show by Kim Uchiyama opens with an artist's reception on Sat from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The show remains on view through Jun 24. The strokes in the paintings "...create a rhythm that gives concrete form to nature's music," according to the gallery.
This is the first Hamptons exhibition for Uchiyama, who is based in New York City. The paintings were made in Otranto, Italy and the "intense, harsh light, and rhythmic sway of wind and water" inform the saturated colors, according to an exhibition release.
