On April 27, LongHouse Reserve founder and artistic director Jack Lenor Larsen, executive director Matko Tomicic, and the LongHouse board invited the community to celebrate the new season with their “Rites of Spring” season opening. As always, several new installations, including “The Longhouse 6” by Will Ryman, “Grand Temptation” by Wendell Castle, and “Dango” by Jun Kaneko decorated the ever-changing landscape.
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.
