Friday and Saturday were the days to celebrate locally the generosity and dedication of the folks from A Walk on Water, AWOW, as they headed to the East End from Venice, CA, for the fifth annual AWOW Montauk surf therapy doubleheader event. Besides fundraising, cocktails, and silent auctions at Children’s Museum of the East End and the Montauk Beach House, the real stuff happened at Ditch Plains Beach on Friday and Saturday, September 6 and 7, as special needs children and their families enjoyed the rewards and therapeutic effects of surfing and surf therapy, guided by AWOW’s trained instructors.
The Halsey McKay Gallery in East Hampton presents Hilary Pecis’s third solo show and Matthew Kirk’s first. Both exhibitions run through October 5. The gallery is now open Friday through Monday, 11 AM to 6 PM.
