It must be interesting to be a fish living right next to a popular restaurant. Millions of oysters, clams, and other shellfish face this dilemma every day since they call the East Hampton Oyster Garden their home. The garden’s shellfish growing areas are located right on the dock and they each house hundreds of thousands of developing clams, oysters, and other species. On the opposite side is the garden’s esteemed restaurant, where the food’s freshness is second to none. The East Hampton Oyster Garden plans to continue its endeavors, and it has also assisted in the development of other shellfish farms across the south shore.
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.
