The recently dedicated Hedges-Edwards Barn at Mulford Farm in East Hampton was the perfect place for the East Hampton Historical Society to honor one of its own on Saturday, June 22. Friends and families filled the Barn to capacity to celebrate the publication of “Behind the Privets: Classic Hamptons Houses,” with text by EHHS curator Richard Barons. BookHampton handled book sales for the event.
There will be a public sale of the works of artist Beryl Bernay-Kossovskaya on Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20, from 10 AM to 4 PM at 18 Neck Path in East Hampton. Many of the diverse selection of paintings and photographs by the long-time Springs resident were inspired by her United Nations foreign correspondent assignments. Other works reflect her love of the area’s light and ambience, while some included pen-and-ink sketches of Paris, New York City, and her 1940s fashion designs.
