On May 16, Nicole Delma, founder of the Hamptons International Film Festival’s “Air, Land, and Sea” program, welcomed local environmental experts, and others who care about the future of our Earth, to Gabby Karan De Felice’s Tutto il Giorno for an elegant dinner and a private screening of “The Serengeti Rules,” directed by Nicolas Brown. A panel discussion led by environmental activists Mike Bottini and Edwina von Gal followed.
The photography series “Life at Sea” by Matt Raynor will be on view from Friday, August 16, through Monday, August 19, at the Southampton Cultural Center. A reception will be held on Friday, August 16, from 6 to 9 PM. Raynor’s evocative photos captured during his time as a commercial fisherman exude the raw power and simultaneous peace of the natural world. On April 18, Raynor suffered a spinal cord injury that has left him with permanent paralysis from the upper chest down. Faced with this new challenge, Raynor hopes to continue to share his artistic vision with the world while finding new ways to make art. For more info, visit www.matthewraynor.com.
