Much attention is turned toward the East End museum scene and its recent unveiling of slates of exhibitions. The new shows at The Parrish and Guild Hall are all winners. That said, the East End gallery scene shouldn't be ignored. Following are three solo shows that make up this week's picks of exhibitions worth seeing on the East End.
"Solo Show by Dalton Portella" at Outeast Gallery
Dalton Portella has outdone himself this time with three new series of work. The Storm Series are mixed media works portraying Portella's perfect storms. Fictionalized and dramatic, they are beautiful to behold and frightening to contemplate. Drama is subdued in the "Whale" and "Shark" series with each capturing the sublime beauty of these sea creatures.
"Solo Show by Dalton Portella" is on view through Nov. 29, 2014. Outeast Gallery is located at 65 Tuthill Road, Montauk, NY 11954. www.outeastmontauk.blogspot.com.

The show presents recent abstract works inspired by the natural worlds found in the Hamptons and her native Ireland. Her inspirations translate into art that channels the subtle play of light and energy through mark making and color. Don't miss it.

"A Recent Series" by Andrew Masino at Gallery Crossing
The solo show of abstract art by Andrew Masino reflects Masino's re-engagement with painting since 2011. Inspired by his continuing reaction to the September 11 terrorist attacks, the art is colorful and graphically intriguing with hints of the architectural carnage that inspired them. Most of the works make use of vibrant color, contrasting the dark circumstances where Masino's inspiration found new life. The exhibition continues through Nov. 10, 2014.
Gallery Crossing is located at 2745 Peconic Lane, Peconic, NY 11958. www.gallerycrossing.com.
