The fantastic weather and delicious food from local vendors like Scotto’s and Oakland’s brought out thousands of people from all over to the San Gennaro Festival in Hampton Bays over the weekend. Being chauffeured by their grandma were little Michael and Giuseppe Morrone in their Italian flap caps. Besides good food and family fun, there was live music, the Ferris wheel, and even a tiny house from Cassone.
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.
