Seascapes and water are popular themes this week in gallery shows hosting events in The Hamptons and the North Fork. Interested? Look to solo shows by Kurt Giehl in East Hampton and Isabelle Haran-Leonardi in Greenport. If art with an edge is preferred, head to The Montauk Beach House to see how self-portraits transform into performative work. Local art makes a strong appearance this weekend at both Ashawagh Hall and Romany Kramoris Gallery.
