DISPATCH - NOV 2, 2012 (3:23 p.m.)
HAMPTONS & RIVERHEAD, NY
The gas shortage--combined with trying conditions from Hurricane Sandy--has some rethinking their weekend plans for art. Cancelling but rescheduling are "Small Works / Big Views" at Ashawagh Hall in Springs, NY and the opening reception for "Anna Jurinich" at Peter Marcelle Gallery in Bridgehampton, NY. Late last night, the Parrish Art Museum announced on its website that Open House events for the new museum would not take place.
The "Small Works / Big Views" benefit exhibition has been postponed until 2013. Jurinich's solo show opened as planned but the artist reception has been postponed to Saturday, Nov 10, from 6 to 8 p.m. The Parrish's VIP Open House events were rescheduled to next weekend.
Reasons ranged from the gas shortage--preventing people from driving to galleries--to lingering difficulties from Hurricane Sandy, said artists and gallery owners.
Keeping their Opening Receptions as planned are The Ross Gallery and The Drawing Room. Both are located in East Hampton, NY.
The Ross Gallery's opening for "Face Off: Contemporary Portraits" takes place today (Friday) from 4 to 6 p.m.
The Drawing Room will hold its opening tomorrow (Saturday) from 5 to 7 p.m. for simultaneous solo shows for Diane Mayo and Sharon Horvath. Both artists are expected to be in attendance.
Also expected to be open tomorrow is Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton. There are four exhibitions currently on view in the museum. On view are “Abstraction: Selections from the Guild Hall Museum Permanent Collection,” a solo show by 2010 Guild Hall Artists Members Exhibition Winner Frank Wimberley," Columbia Records album covers art directed by John Berg and “Fritz Leddy, Part II.”
As planned, tomorrow Guild Hall will screen National Theatre Live: TIMON OF ATHENS at 8 p.m. Approximate Running Time is three hours with one 20-minute intermission. Tickets are $18 or $16 for Guild Hall members.
Also expected to be open tomorrow is the Suffolk County Historical Museum in Riverhead, NY. They are currently presenting “Courier & Ives: Printmakers to the American People." The show features over 100 hand-colored lithographs from a private Long Island collection. The museum recommended calling first before making the trip. They anticipate being open but lack of gas may keep staffers away.
