The skies took a break from watering the plants just in time for the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons’ annual Garden Fair Preview Party on Friday, May 17. VIP early birds were more than happy to pay a premium to have first choice of the huge selection of plants, both indoors and out. The honoree for the event was Charles Savage, one of HAH’s biggest supporters.
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.
