Art shows with receptions this weekend unveil group shows working in photography, mixed media and sculpture across the East End.

Add to the mix a film screening and book reading and the gallery scene is a full one. All events take place through July 14, 2019.
Meanwhile, Kathryn Markel Fine Arts opens a new show in its Bridgehampton gallery on Friday.
