Dream Of Roses

The William Ris Gallery in Jamesport welcomes the beauty of spring with the exhibit “Dream of Roses (Rêve De Roses),” a photographic collection of roses by Takashi Matsuzaki. The debut exhibition runs through May 19. There will be an artist talk on Saturday, May 11, from 1 to 3 PM.

Equal parts Tokyoite and New Yorker, Matsuzaki’s roots lie in fashion and he continues to be a sought-after makeup artist. His natural gravitation towards photography eventually led to a concentrated focus on roses, particularly as Matsuzaki has a deep appreciation for and collects perfumes.

Moments/Stories

MM Fine Art in Southampton presents “Moments/Stories,” paintings by Peter Beston. The show runs through May 19. The British-born artist had a long career as a film editor before becoming an artist.
