On Saturday afternoon, at LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, a standing-room-only crowd attended this year’s last in Toni Ross’s series of panel discussions, called “Women Artists: Reshaping the Conversation.” Art expert Barbara Toll moderated a lively discussion among artists Alice Hope, Sheila Pepe, Brie Ruais, and Kennedy Yanko. Topics included creative techniques and visions, gender identity, and discrimination.
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.
