January GUILD HALL Boots Lamb Education Center 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 5TH ANNUAL FREE WINTER FILM SERIES Sundays 1/13 –3/16 7:00 pm Free Presented in collaboration with the East Hampton Library. Eight screenings of first run, international, award-winning independent films on Sunday nights Sun 1/13 Dreams of Dust Burkina Faso, 2006. 86 min. (French w/ English subtitles) Official Selection 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Mocktar, a Nigerien peasant, comes looking for work in Essakane, a dusty gold mine in Northeast Burkina Faso, Africa, where he hopes to forget the past that haunts him. In Essakane he quickly finds out that the gold rush ended twenty years before, and the inhabitants of this wasteland and strange timelessness manage to exist simply from force of habit. The beautiful Coumba, however, is still courageously struggling to raise her daughter after the death of her family. Mocktar will soon be fighting not only to survive, but also to provide a better future for this mother and her child. "…hypnotic widescreen photography…which is well written and directed… Salgues' screenplay is perfectly crafted…"— Variety Sun 1/20 As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me Germany, 2001. 158 min. (German&Russian w/ English subtitles) Prisoner of war Clemens Forell, a German soldier during WWII, is sentenced to a labor camp in far east Siberia. After four years working in the mines he escapes from the camp (in 1949) and tries to get home to his wife and children. For three years he journeys through Siberia. An odyssey of 14,000 kilometers, set against a backdrop of desolate and inhospitable landscape, beset by danger (from both animals and humans). Constantly battling the worst nature can throw at him, Forell makes his way, step by step towards the longed-for freedom. Sometimes riding on trains, sometimes by boat, mostly on foot, he never knows if his next step will be his last. His prosecutor Kamenev is always right behind him, and more than once it seems that Forell will be captured again. Sun 1/27 Her Name Is Sabine France, 2007. 85 min. (French w/ English subtitles)Winner FIPRESCI Award, Cannes Film Festival. An intelligent, moving and beautiful portrait of Sabine, a 38-year-old autistic woman, filmed by her sister, the famous French actress Sandrine Bonnaire. Through personal footage filmed over a period of 25 years, it is revealed that Sabine's growth and many talents were crushed by improper diagnosis and an inadequate care structure. After a tragic five-year stay in a psychiatric hospital, Sabine finally finds a new lease on life in a home together with other young people living with similar mental and emotional illnesses. This very intimate film also sends an urgent message to a society that still does not know how to properly take care of its citizens with physical and psychological disabilities. "Let's say it out loud; Her Name is Sabine is the most beautiful film that Cannes has given us this year." --FIPRESCI (The International Federation of Film Critics) THE NAKED STAGE Tuesdays 7:30 pm Free The Naked Stage is a working collective of performing artists dedicated to the development of theatre on the East End of Long Island.

Sat 1/19 – Sat 3/29 The Joys of Toys: an Exhibit curated by Bob Skinner Sat 1/19 Opening Reception 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm Free Dr. Skinner, former professor of Fine Arts, at Southampton College, has a local following that comes to see his exhibits on a variety of historic topics. Last year “Art of the Antique Tool” was one of our best-attended shows. Bob will select a variety of 19th-century toys from the museum’s collection and add others from his own considerable antique inventory. On view will be a wide variety of old and not-so-old toys that demonstrate how fashions and values have changed over the years. Games have been popular for millennia, pitting competitive natures against each other in less harmful ways than war. In the 19th century competition was for success in business or world travel. During the Great Depression a new game called Monopoly was invented in which players competed to acquire property or wealth. Other games involved greyhounds, cars, horses, ships and motorcycles racing around the board. Games of learning included puzzles, one of which challenged players to assemble the 48 states into a map of the United States. Building blocks are perhaps the most basic toy a child could have. Stacking them and knocking them over begins at infancy. Blocks with pictures and letters have always been early teaching tools. Later, nesting blocks, Lincoln Logs, Tinkertoys and Erector sets were developed and found in every 20th-century toy box. Dolls, little human stand-ins, are essential to both girls and boys in all cultures, from the most humble tied-up bundles of rags or straw to the most realistic electronic sisters and brothers found today. In this exhibition, dolls from the 19th to the 21st century, including Native American, African-American, Asian, character, storybook and fantasy worlds will be included.

MONTAUK POINT STATE PARK 631-668-5000 Seals on Long Island : During the cooler months, some special visitors from the north come to Long Island starting in mid-November. They return to Northern New England and Canada in May. Seals belonging to the Pinniped family (meaning “feather footed” or “winged”), are true seals which lack external earflaps, have torpedo shaped bodies for fast swimming. They have long, sharp claws to help them dig into the ice while climbing out of the water or onto the beach. Unlike sea lions, their front flippers are short and they are referred to as “earless” seals. Their hind flippers are webbed and pointed backwards to help them swim. They have been recorded swimming over 12 miles per hour and have been spotted swimming 70 miles off of the coast of Long Island. Seals haul out of the water to rest, sleep, and warm up in the sun’s heat. While on land sunning themselves, they are often seen in a “banana” shaped position. The seals we see on Long Island are most often Harbor seals, but there are a few other types, such as harp seals, grey seals, hooded seals, and ringed seals. Numbers have been increasing in past years into the thousands around Long Island due to the changing location of their food sources and the changing temperatures of their watery habitat. Most of the seals that visit Long Island are younger seals. These marine mammals eat a variety of crustaceans, fish and shellfish like mussels, clams, oysters and squid. Mon 1/14 Seal Observation Walk 9:00 am Meet at the Montauk Point concession area. $5/person ($3 for children) plus a $6 vehicle parking fee. Call for reservations and additional information.

The Naked Stage: Works in Progress serves as an incubator and laboratory for actors, writers, directors, dancers, composers, musicians and designers to practice and explore their craft free from the Tues 2/12 SEX by Mae West Lead Artist: Josh Perl Featuring an ensemble cast TBA. In her first starring role on Broadway, written in 1926, West played Margy LaMont in SEX, which had 375 continuous performances but was closed by the police after more than a year when West was tried and convicted for corrupting the morals of youth. Set in a Montreal brothel, the play confronts the issue of women separated by class and attitudes of sexuality. West's character learns the painful lesson that women are not bound in sisterhood simply because they have shared


the betrayal of men. “No mere strutting sexpot, West's capacity for scathing satire comes into full view...Filled with the saucy argot of the New York streets, the play still crackles and cooks.” --Publisher's Weekly. “Mae West was many things: sexual outlaw, wildcat feminist, actress, icon. The publication of these plays proves that she was more complex than her movies suggest. The only thing she did straightforwardly was to insist that her convictions were worth fighting for...She was as close as any woman has ever come to being one of the great American queens...we can look back at Mae West with new eyes, and admire the fun she had with sex and the control she exercised on her image and her career.” -- The Boston Book Review Tues 2/26 THE ODYSSEY By Homer, adapted by Mary Zimmerman Based on a translation by Robert Fitzgerald Lead Artist: Josh Gladstone Featuring an ensemble cast TBA. This dramatic adaptation of Homer's myth begins with a modern young woman who is struggling to understand Robert Fitzgerald's translation of The Odyssey. A classical muse appears, and the young woman becomes the goddess Athena -- a tireless advocate for Odysseus in his struggle to get home. With her trademark irreverent and witty twist on classic works, Zimmerman brings to life the story of Odysseus's ten-year journey, depicting his encounters with characters such as Circe, the Cyclops, Poseidon, Calypso, the Sirens and others. “Resourceful, brainy theater that honors the power of imagination…defines the heart, soul and mission of regional theater.” – NY Times GUILD HALL 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Sun 2/17 Adult Lecture: African American Expressions in the Boots Lamb Education Center 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm - Free Artists lecture on their work and life with Rosa Hanna Scott and members of the Long Island Black Artists Association.

(Romanian w/ English subtitles) Bucharest 1989 – Last year of Ceausescu's dictatorship. Eva, 17, lives with her parents and her 7 yearold brother Lalalilu. One day at school, Eva and her boyfriend accidentally break a bust of Ceausescu. They are forced to confess their crime before a disciplinary committee. Eva is expelled from school and transferred to a reformatory establishment. There she meets Andrei and decides to escape Romania with him. Lalalilu is more and more convinced that Ceausescu is the main reason for Eva's decision to leave, and with his friends from school, he devises a plan to kill the dictator. "…charmingly told first feature… works confidently within a traditional, anecdotal storytelling framework, enlivened by young Dorotheea Petre's luminous perf… Pic joins a spate of fine recent Romanian films which are slowly finding audience as well as critical support." –Variety Wed 2/13 Mother of Mine, Finland, 2005. 111 min. (Finnish & Swedish w/ English subtitles) Finland's Academy Award Submission for Best Foreign Language Film. During World War II, more than 70,000 Finnish children were evacuated to neutral Sweden to avoid the conflict. Mother of Mine, the latest from the awardwinning Klaus Haro (Elina), tackles that painful patch of history in a tale of 9-year-old Eero, a child who increasingly feels abandoned by his biological Finnish mother and yet not attached to his Swedish surrogate mom. When he is returned to Finland, his confusion intensifies. "Finnish (director) Klaus Haro comes up with an emotionally involving tale that could also resonate beyond the region in specialty situations. Pic is Finland's official submission for the Oscars' foreign film category." -- Variety GUILD HALL Moran and Spiga Galleries and Boots Lamb Education Center 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Sat 1/12 – Sun 2/3 16th Annual Student Arts Festival- Part I PreK – 8 Sat 2/16 – Sun 3/9 16th Annual Student Arts Festival- Part II High School Sat 3/1 Reception 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm An Educational outreach exhibition that showcases student art from Montauk through Bridgehampton.

Sat 1/19 – Sat 3/29 The Joys of Toys: an Exhibit curated by Bob Skinner Dr. Skinner, former professor of Fine Arts, at Southampton College, has a local following that comes to see his exhibits on a variety of historic topics. Last year “Art of the Antique Tool” was one of our best-attended shows. Bob will select a variety of 19th-century toys from the museum’s collection and add others from his own considerable antique inventory. On view will be a wide variety of old and not-so-old toys that demonstrate how fashions and values have changed over the years. Games have been popular for millennia, pitting competitive natures against each other in less harmful ways than war. In the 19th century competition was for success in business or world travel. During the Great Depression a new game called Monopoly was invented in which players competed to acquire property or wealth. Other


games involved greyhounds, cars, horses, ships and motorcycles racing around the board. Games of learning included puzzles, one of which challenged players to assemble the 48 states into a map of the United States. Building blocks are perhaps the most basic toy a child could have. Stacking them and knocking them over begins at infancy. Blocks with pictures and letters have always been early teaching tools. Later, nesting blocks, Lincoln Logs, Tinkertoys and Erector sets were developed and found in every 20th-century toy box. Dolls, little human stand-ins, are essential to both girls and boys in all cultures, from the most humble tied-up bundles of rags or straw to the most realistic electronic sisters and brothers found today. In this exhibition, dolls from the 19th to the 21st century, including Native American, African-American, Asian, character, storybook and fantasy worlds will be included.

White 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm Ellen T. White will talk about and sign copies of her new book SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE: Unleash Your Inner Siren and Mesmerize Any Man With Help From the Most Famous and Infamous Women in History. We all know them: the women who light up a room when they enter, and have men hanging on their every word. The secret of these “Sirens” is more than good looks—though that of course helps. It’s more important follow your passions, play up your talents, and learn to live as fearlessly as any of the great seductresses in history. Every woman has got what it takes to be a Siren. The trick is realizing just what kind of Siren you are and working it confidently. Author and long-time Siren Ellen T. White takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride charting the course of seductresses through the ages, and turns their


lives into entertaining lessons for women that are timeless and true. The book divulges the Siren powers of women as wide-ranging as Angelina Jolie, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Cleopatra, Pamela Harriman, Camilla Parker Bowles, Greta Garbo, and Coco Chanel, Susan Sarandon, Catherine the Great, and Queen Elizabeth I. Cheeky histories of these iconic women of SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE are paired with a dazzling array of quizzes, quotes, photos, tongue-in-cheek captions, and tips for the budding Siren. White peers into the lives of worldclass Sirens, and breaks down their methods into “lessons” that the modern Siren can emulate. How did Marilyn Monroe (Sex Kitten) inspire such sexual frenzy. Through frequent touch, the purl of her shoulders, and wardrobe malfunctions that were carefully planned. How did Jennie Churchill (Companion) keep the members of the British Parliament in her thrall? Because she threw herself into their passions and knew the secret of turning lemons into lemonade. “Yet more than being simply irresistible,” White writes, “the seductresses who populate these pages are women of substance—as well as Sirens with whom readers will identify. As women who have gotten much of what they want out of life, they are well worth studying…” Throughout these witty case histories, White tells the tales of her own triumphs and trials, as well as the hilarious Siren stories of her mother, grandmother, cousins, and friends. SIMPLY IRESISTIBLE is the synthesis of a lifetime of observation and research.

They return to Northern New England and Canada in May. Seals belonging to the Pinniped family (meaning “feather footed” or “winged”), are true seals which lack external earflaps, have torpedo shaped bodies for fast swimming. They have long, sharp claws to help them dig into


the ice while climbing out of the water or onto the beach. Unlike sea lions, their front flippers are short and they are referred to as “earless” seals. Their hind flippers are webbed and pointed backwards to help them swim. They have been recorded swimming over 12 miles per hour and have been spotted swimming 70 miles off of the coast of Long Island. Seals haul out of the water to rest, sleep, and warm up in the sun’s heat. While on land sunning themselves, they are often seen in a “banana” shaped position. The seals we see on Long Island are most often Harbor seals, but there are a few other types, such as harp seals, grey seals, hooded seals, and ringed seals. Numbers have been increasing in past years into the thousands around Long Island due to the changing location of their food sources and the changing temperatures of their watery habitat. Most of the seals that visit Long Island are younger seals. These marine mammals eat a variety of crustaceans, fish and shellfish like mussels, clams, oysters and squid. Seal Observation Walks Dates & Times: February 17th and 18th (11am both days); and 25th (9am); March 4 (noon); 17th (11am); 25th (9 am); April 14th (1pm); 22nd (9am); 28th (1pm). Meet at the Montauk Point concession area. $5/person ($3 for children) plus a $6 vehicle parking fee. Call for reservations and additional information. Join Mike Bottini on a 3 mile (round trip) hike to view seals and learn about their habits, behavior, and population trends in the Long Island region. Dress warm and wear comfortable hiking shoes; we will be outdoors for 2.5 hours. Binoculars recommended but not necessary. Mike will bring a spotting scope that everyone will get a chance to use. This program is sponsored by New York State Parks, and is scheduled to coincide with low tide, when seals are most likely to be basking on the rocks.

In this quickly moving world of technology, children’s museums give families an opportunity to slow down and actively share in their children’s growth. These wonderful places of discovery are designed to provide interactive experiences that foster curiosity in children and create a lifelong love of self-directed learning. Interactive exhibits will be both permanent and rotating. The permanent exhibit will focus on what makes the East End a special place, with an emphasis on the people and living creatures that inhabit it. Themes include agriculture, fishing, world celebrations, and community. In addition to the indoor activities, visitors will be encouraged to explore outdoor exhibits, mazes and gardens. Plans include space for yearround workshops, performances, and special events, as well as a permanent art workshop for children to explore their own creativity.

Put your Wednesday evenings aside for a relaxing and creative workshop in needlepoint. Needlepoint was born to recreate the look of woven tapestries. Sometime during the 16th and 17th centuries, embroidery on canvas, or needlepoint as we know it today, began to develop. Needlepoint was popular during colonial times, where it was used for pictures, upholstery fabric, and fashion accessories. Robert Erdman from What's Your Point in Southampton will be teaching this introductory course to needlepoint. For beginners and those who need a refresher. Robert will cover basics on canvas stitching and introduce you to several basic stitches including: continental, basket weave and a couple of surprise stitches. The Needlepoint Learning kit that you purchase will include everything you need for the class. You supply the enthusiasm! Robert will select and provide the appropriate canvas and fibers after the basics are covered. Your completed project will end up as a beautiful stitched canvas suitable for framing or even a pillow.

Inter-borough Repertory Theater presents "ROOTS OF RAP." The art of putting words to rhythm can be found in many cultures. In China, they call it Qin Songs; the Ashantes of Africa call their version opo verses; in Jamaica, it's called chatting and in Trinidad, it's dubbing or mamaguy. In Western Europe, it is called poetry. But rap is an African-American invention. Just as African-American culture developed its own recognizable musical heritage in jazz music, a new literary style has emerged. Rapping takes the poetic literary style and combines it with an African root, creating this new sound: rap. Don't miss this incredibly talented group as they perform an invigoratingly powerful piece about Black History through rap!


Sun 2/24 Mixed Media Art Workshop - Me & My Dad (or dad-like friend) 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm $10 per person members/$12 non-members Perfect for kids ages 4-11 Meet Dr. Chimp, a passionately innovative primatologist, who has spent the last decade working with neglected and abused chimps whose lives have been transformed in a most unexpected way - through painting, photography and, indeed, even filmaking as a profound form of therapy. In so doing, she has joined the inner circle of a small but bold group of scientists who are expanding the frontiers of interspecies understanding and communication. Through her Chimpanzee Artist Foundation (www.chimpanzeeartistfoundation.com), she is campaigning to build a very special sanctuary for her chimps in East Hampton, NY, where she can explore whether art - more than the complex thicket of words and language - can help form a vital bridge between human and animal species and bring us ever closer to these wondrous, endangered relatives of ours. Her work is not only about saving chimpanzees from unbearable human-created conditions, but also about the possibility of understanding our own humanness through the insight of another intelligent, emotional species who might have much to reveal to us. Audra will teach an exciting art class using a wide array of materials as well as, showing footage of her chimps painting away.

Numerous stints as the uncertain frontman of uncertain bands that never made it out of the basement frustrated him into going it alone. His style was born from the bars and beach parties he's been performing at since college. From pop ballads to blues ditties, hard-driving rock to funked up freestyle jams and with an everevolving cast of talent, the essence of great songwriting shines through whether he's backed up by a band or up there alone just a man and his guitar. Sat 2/2 The Rhythm Kings 10:30 Pm $10 60's Soul, R & B, Motown, Reggae, And R & R Music The Rhythm Kings build their music on a versatile mix of 60’s soul, Motown, reggae and classic rock. Powerful vocals and fluid musicianship fuel their startling versatility as they breathe fresh air into every song they perform. Hints of jam band improvisation and gritty blues grooves mix effortlessly with skin-tight funk, Detroit r’n’b and sweaty Jamaican anthems. A party band with brains and a big heart. Fri 2/8 Signify 10:30 pm $10, Little Head Thinks 10:00 pm $10 Alternative/Rock Band/Cover and originals Sat 2/9 Little Head Thinks 10:30 pm $10 Alternative/Rock Band/Cover and originals Fri 2/15 HAMPTON DAZE PRESENTS THE BROKEN HEARTS BALL $10 Stag/$20 Couple Attire: YES! Matty Liot & The Big Up 8:00 pm The story, so far, is fairly simple, and began not that long ago, really... in Sag Harbor NY; Long waveless periods waiting for surf, passing time by indulging the white Stratocaster that beckoned from the corner of the room, endlessly studying, listening, and then studying some more... the Zeppelin, the Cream, S. R. Vaughn, Hendrix, Dale, roadsigns that all pointed to even deeper places in the past, back to names like Wolf, B.B., Freddie, Robert, Elmore... The voyage of discovery continues, of course, but in the meantime, Matty Liot has already


attracted local attention, sitting in with acts such as The Nancy Atlas Project, The Lone Sharks, Winson Irie, and The Blaggards, becoming a musical fixture at the Stephen Talkhouse in the process. "Matty Liot & The Big Up" puts him squarely at the front of the stage, in the band leader role of a classic rock power trio, supported by the veteran rhythm section of Mick Hargreaves (Buddy Woodward and the Nitro Xpress, The Ghostrockets, The Hangdogs, The Blaggards) on bass, and Chris Mehos (Who's Your Daddy, The Delevantes, The Ghost Rockets, Buddy Woodward & The Nitro Xpress) on drums. Blaggards 10:30 pm The Blaggards bring a no-holds-barred rock and roll attitude to whatever muscial genre they care to tackle... obscure rockabilly tunes, a country song or two, a pop hit from the 1960s, some classic blues, songs from singer/songwriters, or an occasional surf instrumental. Central to their quarter-a-song, roadhouse jukebox rock 'n' roll theme, they shun the worn-out formula of endless classic rock tune retreads and bland interpretations of "the hits.” "The guys put a lot of effort into keeping it fresh and their range is wide and deep. Plus, they have a real identifiable sound, all strong players, and are clearly having a good time up there... here's a band, on the scene, playing the heck out of it, for the sheer joy of doing so, making the crowd dance." - Gene Casey of The Lone Sharks – Sat 2/16 Mama Lee and Friends 8:00 pm $10 Great six piece local band with two female singers. Sat 2/16 Remember September 10:00 pm $ 10 Remember September is an original rock band that is makings its first Long Island appearance at Stephen's. Over the past two years, we have performed almost 175 dates at clubs throughout Connecticut and New York City. We have shared the stage with a variety of legendary acts, including Chicago, Average White Band, Johnny Winter, .38 Special, Steve Vai and several others. Please bring your "musical ear" for our critically-acclaimed original music and your dance shoes because we plan on making our Long Island debut a special one! Fri 2/22 The Surf Dogs 8:00 pm $10, Annie Morgan Band 10:00 pm $10 Annie Morgan has been called the finest soul/R&B singer on Long Island. A long time favorite on the East End music scene, she possesses incredible vocal range and is known for her expressive, high energy performances. Annie does what only the very best singers do, she gives those who come to listen something of herself. She does this openly, honestly and without artifice. As one fan put it, when The Annie Morgan Band takes the stage, the music comes at you like heat lightning, like primitive dancing, like Fourth of July fireworks. The electricity generated snaps, crackles and the place rocks! Sat 2/23 Benefit in Memory of Carl Lindgren 7:00 pm $15, The Lone Sharks 10:30 pm $10 The Sharks play up to 150 gigs a year, and most of them are still out east where a devoted following keeps the band working year round. The Lone Shark CDs, consisting mostly of Gene's self-penned tunes have been a catalyst for newer and better things. "We've learned a lot in putting them out. What to do, and what not to do. We’re still trying to capture our live sound.” Gene plays a battered 1967 Gretsch Anniversary hollow body guitar, and usually wears black attire "because Johnny Cash and Orson Welles did, though I'm not sure they did for the same reason." Shark fans have come to expect the usual on-stage theatrics from Gene: duckwalks, windmills, and show-stopping splits, a la T-Bone Walker and Chuck Berry. "They're not really splits," says Gene. "I can't get low enough. They're more splats." After many years living in Sag Harbor, Gene has recently moved to the wilds of the East End’s North Fork, drawing inspiration from the farms and vineyards that make up this decidedly less hectic area. Fri 2/29 Rubix Cube 10:30 pm $10 FLASHBACK: THE EIGHTIES---a totally awesome time when people were "Workin' For the Weekend" and parachute pant-clad dudes donned their "Sunglasses At Night." It was a wicked cool time when valley girls wore mini-skirts and legwarmers while they "Walked Like An Egyptian." The EIGHTIES . . . when "Video Killed the Radio Star!" FLASHFORWARD: 2007---Six experienced and professional musicians, tired of hearing inferior cover bands murder the music of one of their favorite decades, put together an '80s band, dubbed appropriately enough: RUBIX KUBE. With a strong male AND female lead singer, along with four polished musicians, RUBIX KUBE is able to crank out pop and rock hit songs from the '80s--and perform them EXACTLY LIKE THE ORIGINALS, both musically and vocally, with so much charisma and energy, the crowd will bust more moves than a rubix's cube itself! Like---TOTALLY!

We wish to provide a focal point for the encouragement of theatre and all it’s associated arts. The Naked Stage: Works in Progress serves as an incubator and laboratory for actors, writers, directors, dancers, composers, musicians and designers to practice and explore their craft free from the Tues 3/4 MATERNAL INSTINCT By Monica Bauer Lead Artist: Jonathan Wallace Featuring an ensemble cast TBA. A story about motherhood, friends and lovers, sibling rivalry, sexual yearning and a lesbian marriage. Set in present-day Boston at the birthday party of Lillian, an MIT professor whose research about the maternal instincts of mice is about to pay off and make her a major player in the world of biochemistry. Lillian’s sister Emma has a special gift – she will pay for the sperm donor so that Lillian and her spouse Sarah can have a baby; but as a scientist who knows the importance of genetics, Lillian is afraid to take the risk, and her marriage falls into jeopardy. First produced at Boston Playwrights Theater; 3rd PlaceWinner, New Works for Young Women competition. Playwright will be present for audience feedback. Tues 3/11 DANCING AT LUGHNASA by Brian Friel Lead Artist: Peter Fitzgerald Featuring an ensemble cast TBA. Winner of the 1992 Tony Award for Best Play, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Broadway Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. Chosen by Time magazine as one of the ten best plays for 1991, saying it is "The most elegant and rueful memory play since The Glass Menagerie." Widely regarded as Brian Friel's masterpiece, this extraordinary play is the story of five unmarried sisters, one with a young son, eking out their lives in a small village in Ireland in l936. It is the time of the festival of Lughnasa, which celebrates the pagan god of the harvest with drunken revelry and dancing. Their spare existence is interrupted by brief, colorful bursts of music from the radio, their only link to the romance and hope of the world at large. When the sisters finally dance to a wild, pagan Irish tune, they embody the core of the human spirit that cannot be vanquished by time or loss, or fully expressed in language. "…this play does exactly what theater was born to do, carrying both its characters and audience aloft on those waves of distant music and ecstatic release that, in defiance of all language and logic, let us dance and dream just before night must fall." — NY Times. Tues 3/25 WOMEN OF MANHATTAN by John Patrick Shanley Featuring an ensemble cast TBD. Described by the author as "an Upper West Side story," this provocative, brilliantly stylized and often very funny play delves into the lives of three upscale Manhattan female yuppies whose financial success is counterbalanced by their unmet emotional needs. First produced by New York's celebrated Manhattan Theatre Club. John Patrick Shanley is the Pulitzer and Tony Award winning playwright of Doubt and Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonstruck.

About The Academy of the Arts: Because of the abundance of talent on the East End of Long Island, in 1985 the Board of Trustees of Guild Hall initiated a program of awards in recognition of lifetime achievement in the arts. A distinguished jury convened. Members included Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Perry, Joseph F. Cullman 3rd, Peter Jennings, Sidney Gruson, Wilfred Sheed, Elaine Steinbeck, Henry Geldzahler and Sherrye Henry. This group elected Kurt Vonnegut, Willem de Kooning and Alan Alda to receive the first "Medals of Merit" for excellence in the literary, visual and performing arts. In 1986, the Academy of the


Arts was formed, using as its nucleus the original jury and the 1985 awardees. All subsequent award recipients have been selected by ballot by the entire Academy membership. The membership has grown to over 200, a truly incredible assemblage of internationally recognized artists emanating from a relatively small community. Among the lifetime honorees are Ben Bradlee, Alec Baldwin, April Gornik, Stephen Spielberg, Betty Freidan, Billy Joel, Lauren Bacall, Paul Simon, Wendy Wasserstein and many others in the fields of visual arts, literary arts and performing arts.

The year is 1938, India is ruled by the British, and it is around this time that Gandhi has arrived from Africa to begin his struggle with the British, as well as battle the traditions that bind the Hindus. Not yet in her teens, Chuyia is married to a much older and sickly male, who shortly passes away. Chuyia is returned unceremoniously to her parents' house, and from there she is taken to the holy city of Banaras and left in the care of a wide assortment of widows who live at "the widows' house," shunned by the rest of the community. Chuyia does not know that according to Holy Hindu Scriptures she has been destined to live here for the rest of her life. Her feisty presence affects the other residents, forcing each to confront their faith and society's prejudices. Sun 3/9 THE ISLAND, Russia 2006 112 min. (Russian, dubbed in English) Winner of 5 Nika Awards (Russian Oscars) including Best Film. Somewhere in Northern Russia, in a small Russian Orthodox monastery isolated on an island, lives a very unusual man. His fellow-monks are confused by his bizarre conduct. Those who visit the island believe that the man has the power to heal, exorcise demons and foretell the future. However, he considers himself unworthy because of a sin he committed in his youth. The film is a parable, combining the realities of Russian everyday life with monastic ritual and routine. “Pavel Lounguine surprises followers with his less-virile but oddly fascinating 'The Island'…this parable about faith and salvation is addressed to the broad-minded arthouse audience drawn to spiritual themes."—Variety Sun 3/16 VIVA CUBA, Cuba 2005 80 min (Spanish w/ English subtitles) Cuba's Academy Award Submission for Best Foreign Language Film. In a tale akin to Romeo and Juliet, the friendship between two children is threatened by their parents' differences. Malú is from an upper-class family and her single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito, as she thinks his background coarse and commonplace. Jorgito's mother, a poor socialist proud of her family's social standing, places similar restrictions on her son. What neither woman recognizes is the immense strength of the bond between Malú and Jorgito. When the children learn that Malú's mother is planning to leave Cuba, they decide to travel to the other side of the island to find Malú's father and persuade him against signing the forms that would allow it.

This March, the Southampton Cultural Center is pleased to present a concert version of Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along. Merrily We Roll Along is a musical with a book by George Furth and lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim. It is based on the 1934 play of the same name by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. Furth and Sondheim retained the basic structure and overall theme of the play but updated it to encompass the years between 1957 and 1980. Its main protagonist is Franklin Shepard who, in 1980, is a one-time composer of Broadway musicals who has become a highly successful but cynical and jaded film producer who has lost his friends, longtime collaborator Charley Kringas and Mary Flynn, a writer. Like the play, the musical moves backwards in time showing how Frank has become the man he is today.

Sat 3/15 Meet the Author: Tom De Vincentis 5:30 pm –6:30 pm Meet author Tom De Vincentis who will sign copies of his new book “Tails of the City: Confessions of a Manhattan Pet Vet.” Here is a heartwarming collection of stories of the pets of New York City—and the people who love them. Set to publish as a celebration of the important advent of The Humane Society of the United States’ 2008 Spay Day USA, here is a book by an author who knows all animals—not just dogs and cats. The lucky lambs and horses of Yorkshire were tended by James Herriot; the pedigreed cats and pampered pooches of New York City are privileged to be cared for by Tom DeVincentis. A “country” veterinarian in Manhattan for more than 25 years, DeVincentis has tended for many generations of Big Apple pets. His Tails of the City is beautifully designed with ribbon marker and dangler and combines the warm-heartedness of James Herriot with a dash of New York City style to present an engaging portrait and memoir, not just of the animals DeVincentis has treated over the years, but also of their owners, and of the city in which they all live. Readers are introduced to Rowdy, a seventeen-year-old domestic shorthair cat who, under the care of Dr. DeVincentis, lived many more than his allotted nine lives, and to an elderly boxer stray named Champ, rescued by an equally elderly couple who ran a bodega in Spanish Harlem and who rescued more pets than they could name. From the affection shared by lab mix Suzy and her owner, a homeless man named James to the hard-earned trust that formed between Tom DeVincentis and Margot, a dog he took home from the clinic where he worked, DeVincentis describes the cycle of life and love that every pet-owner and his or her charge experience, from the initial meeting to the final parting. Charming illustrations by the award-winning illustrator Bill Charmatz enhance the endearing stores that describe qualities of animals like those we’ve all known and loved. At times poignant, at times laugh-out-loud funny, the tales in this charming book reveal as much about the people who own them as they do about the pets themselves. While the animals and people profiled are true New Yorkers, the connection they share is universal, and one that will resonate with animal lovers everywhere.

ALISON RESTAURANT 95 School Street Bridgehampton 11932 537-7100 info@alisonrestaurant.com MONTAUK POINT STATE PARK 631-668-5000 Seals on Long Island : During the cooler months, some special visitors from the north come to Long Island starting in mid-November. They return to Northern New England and Canada in May. Seals belonging to the Pinniped family (meaning “feather footed” or “winged”), are true seals which lack external earflaps, have torpedo shaped bodies for fast swimming. They have long, sharp claws to help them dig into the ice while climbing out of the water or onto the beach. Unlike sea lions, their front flippers are short and they are referred to as “earless”


seals. Their hind flippers are webbed and pointed backwards to help them swim. They have been recorded swimming over 12 miles per hour and have been spotted swimming 70 miles off of the coast of Long Island. Seals haul out of the water to rest, sleep, and warm up in the sun’s heat. While on land sunning themselves, they are often seen in a “banana” shaped position. The seals we see on Long Island are most often Harbor seals, but there are a few other types, such as harp seals, grey seals, hooded seals, and ringed seals. Numbers have been increasing in past years into the thousands around Long Island due to the changing location of their food sources and the changing temperatures of their watery habitat. Most of the seals that visit Long Island are younger seals. These marine mammals eat a variety of crustaceans, fish and shellfish like mussels, clams, oysters and squid. Seal Observation Walks Dates & Times: March 4 (noon); 17th (11am); 25th (9 am); April 14th (1pm); 22nd (9am); 28th (1pm). Meet at the Montauk Point concession area. $5/person ($3 for children) plus a $6 vehicle parking fee. Call for reservations and additional information. Join Mike Bottini on a 3 mile (round trip) hike to view seals and learn about their habits, behavior, and population trends in the Long Island region. Dress warm and wear comfortable hiking shoes; we will be outdoors for 2.5 hours. Binoculars recommended but not necessary. Mike will bring a spotting scope that everyone will get a chance to use. This program is sponsored by New York State Parks, and is scheduled to coincide with low tide, when seals are most likely to be basking on the rocks.

These wonderful places of discovery are designed to provide interactive experiences that foster curiosity in children and create a lifelong love of self-directed learning. Interactive exhibits will be both permanent and rotating. The permanent exhibit will focus on what makes the East End a special place, with an emphasis on the people and living creatures that inhabit it. Themes include agriculture, fishing, world celebrations, and community. In addition to the indoor activities, visitors will be encouraged to explore outdoor exhibits, mazes and gardens. Plans include space for year-round workshops, performances, and special events, as well as a permanent art workshop for children to explore their own creativity.

Put your Wednesday evenings aside for a relaxing and creative workshop in needlepoint. Needlepoint was born to recreate the look of woven tapestries. Sometime during the 16th and 17th centuries, embroidery on canvas, or needlepoint as we know it today, began to develop. Needlepoint was popular during colonial times, where it was used for pictures, upholstery fabric, and fashion accessories. Robert Erdman from What's Your Point in Southampton will be teaching this introductory course to needlepoint. For beginners and those who need a refresher. Robert will cover basics on canvas stitching and introduce you to several basic stitches including: continental, basket weave and a couple of surprise stitches. The Needlepoint Learning kit that you


purchase will include everything you need for the class. You supply the enthusiasm! Robert will select and provide the appropriate canvas and fibers after the basics are covered. Your completed project will end up as a beautiful stitched canvas suitable for framing or even a pillow.

The evening begins at 6:00 pm with pizza, followed by the reading and finishing with an art project. This pizza pajama night is appropriate for ages 4-8. The book to be read is Chewy Louie by Howie Schneider. When Father brings home a new puppy, it is love at first sight. The family takes good care of its new member but, although he is a very cute puppy, they quickly discover that he is also constantly hungry. No matter how much they feed him, he still wants to chew everything in the house, earning him the nickname Chewy Louie. Louie's destructive behavior is not so bad until he starts eating toys, furniture and even parts of the house. Rest assured that Louie is only going through a growing phase, and he needs time to grow out of it. Children will laugh out loud at the riotous behavior of the rambunctious pup. They may even learn that taking care of a new puppy is a big responsibility and can only be done with a lot of patience and love. 6:00 pm Pizza Is Served 6:30 pm Reading Sat 3/29 Art Workshop: Clay Flower Vases 10:00 am - 11:00 am Members: $20, non-members, $22.

Have you ever tried mead? Maybe you tried mead while visiting Europe or at a medieval festival? Have you been told that mead was like beer, a beer with honey or even a wine with honey? Mead has some similarities to these beverages, but it is so much more it deserves its own category. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of honey as its primary sugar source and is often referred to as honey wine. Being made from honey, one would naturally expect it to be very sweet and although it usually is, it can actually range from dry to very sweet. Mead is usually still, though it can be made sparkling and can range from a mild low alcoholic content up to very high. Mead is arguably the oldest alcoholic beverage on the planet with some evidence dating it back approximately 10,000 years. Due to many different cultural and financial reasons, mead has fallen out of favor over the many years and now we call it the 'oldest alcoholic beverage no one has ever heard of.' A far cry from its hey day when it was referred to as the 'Nectar of the Gods.' Mead can be produced in many variations including a plain honey wine (traditional - honey only), flavored with fruit (melomel), spices (metheglin), vegetables, or any combination of ingredients limited only by the imagination of the wine maker and the resources he has at hand.

Annie does what only the very best singers do, she gives those who come to listen something of herself. She does this openly, honestly and without artifice. As one fan put it, when The Annie Morgan Band takes the stage, the music comes at you like heat lightning, like primitive dancing, like Fourth of July fireworks. The electricity generated snaps, crackles and the place rocks! Fri 3/21 The Bossa Nova Beatnicks 8:00 pm $10 Describing themselves as one of the most unique and original bands in New York BNB certainly live up to that description. Bandleader Tom Gould's songs often have an indefinable quality, bouncing from pop to jazz to world rhythms - sometimes within a single song. Constantly re-inventing themselves, the Bossa Nova Beatniks are a very dynamic live act as well. Expect a wide range of emotions and rhythms to flood


from the stage. SAM ASH website Fri 3/21 Blaggards 10:30 pm $10 The Blaggards bring a no-holds-barred rock and roll attitude to whatever muscial genre they care to tackle... obscure rockabilly tunes, a country song or two, a pop hit from the 1960s, some classic blues, songs from singer/songwriters, or an occasional surf instrumental. Central to their quarter-a-song, roadhouse jukebox rock 'n' roll theme, they shun the worn-out formula of endless classic rock tune retreads and bland interpretations of "the hits.” "The guys put a lot of effort into keeping it fresh and their range is wide and deep. Plus, they have a real identifiable sound, all strong players, and are clearly having a good time up there... here's a band, on the scene, playing the heck out of it, for the sheer joy of doing so, making the crowd dance." - Gene Casey of The Lone Sharks – Sat 3/22 Blue Collar Band 8:00 pm $10 Classic & Original Rock & Roll Sat 3/22 The Lone Sharks 10:30 pm $10 The Sharks play up to 150 gigs a year, and most of them are still out east where a devoted following keeps the band working year round. The Lone Shark CDs, consisting mostly of Gene's self-penned tunes have been a catalyst for newer and better things. "We've learned a lot in putting them out. What to do, and what not to do. We’re still trying to capture our live sound.” Gene plays a battered 1967 Gretsch Anniversary hollow body guitar, and usually wears black attire "because Johnny Cash and Orson Welles did, though I'm not sure they did for the same reason." Shark fans have come to expect the usual on-stage theatrics from Gene: duckwalks, windmills, and show-stopping splits, a la T-Bone Walker and Chuck Berry. "They're not really splits," says Gene. "I can't get low enough. They're more splats." After many years living in Sag Harbor, Gene has recently moved to the wilds of the East End’s North Fork, drawing inspiration from the farms and vineyards that make up this decidedly less hectic area. Fri 3/28 The Subdudes 8pm $65/$50 A great mix of Soul, New Orleans R& B, Gospel, Rock and Roll and Country that only could be pulled off by a southern band like this unique stew of harmony, groove, and roots that is the Subdudes. http://www.subdudes.com/ Fri 3/28 Last Resort 10:30 pm $ 10 Here we are ... a new sound.. a new feel .. a new voice ... WE ARE LAST RESORT! Started in November 2007 - Last Resort is quickly becoming a talked about band. Come see LAST RESORT! LAST RESORT is a new musical Collaboration between Suzanne Sanborn, Shawn Richards (Formerly of Zins Hazard and Fathom), Sean Daly and Jimmy Petrone (formerly of Unfinished). This amazing quartet is bringing music to a new level. LAST RESORT is an enthusiastic cocktail of original Rock and Pop with a splash of cleverly crafted Covers. Be a part of history in the making and see last resort! Sat 3/29 Nancy Atlas Acoustic 8:00 pm $10 The lead singer and founder of the Nancy Atlas Project belts out here tunes ACOUSTICLY. Sat 3/29 The Creamsicles 10:30 pm $10 Throw Parliament Funkadelic, Led Zepplin, Prince, James Brown, and Queen in a blender, freeze, and take a bite, and you'd have the New York based band THE CREAMSICLES. From Burning Man, to The New York City Marathon, to the National Theater of Japan, THE CREAMSICLES have toured and performed extensively. Made up of John Sully (songwriter/guitar/vocals), Craig Gottlieb (bass), and Marcello Pantano (drums), THE CREAMSICLES not only make great Rock music, but bring a level of polish, showmanship, and full-on "get your groove on" style to their performances that is in short supply on the indie circuit currently.

April GUILD HALL 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 The Naked Stage – Staged Play Readings in The Boots Lamb Education Center at Guild Hall 7:30 pm The Naked Stage is a working collective of performing artists dedicated to the development of theatre on the East End of Long Island. The members of The Naked Stage believe in the possibilities generated by the collaboration of devoted people. We wish to provide a focal point for the encouragement of theatre and all it’s associated arts. The Naked Stage: Works in Progress serves as an incubator and laboratory for actors, writers, directors, dancers, composers, musicians and designers to practice and explore their craft free from the constraints of production schedules, budgets, criticism and public performance. Tues 4/8 CLOSER by Patrick Marber Featuring Johanna Howard, Siri Howard, Max Roll, and an ensemble cast TBA. Winner of the 1998 Olivier Award for Best Play and the 1999 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Foreign Play. Joanna Howard, a native of Westhampton Beach, played Juliet in the


JDT’s 2001 production of Romeo & Juliet, and is now pursuing her acting career in New York City. She most recently appeared with Wallace Shawn in the Drew’s staged reading of Mamet’s Oleanna. Only four characters appear in Closer, two women and two men. Alice is a young lost soul, a self-described waif who works as a stripper. One-time would-be writer Dan writes obituaries. Anna is a photographer. Larry is a dermatologist. Closer follows their relationships over an extended period, leaping ahead months and even years in almost each of the twelve scenes to the next decisive meeting or confrontation. "CLOSER is a sad, savvy, often funny play that casts a steely, unblinking gaze at the world of relationships and lets you come to your own conclusions…CLOSER does not merely hold your attention; it burrows into you." —NY Magazine."…a brilliant and bracingly adult new play from London…bruising and beautiful, shatteringly funny and devastatingly sad. The play's dialogue has a raw emotionality rarely heard in art or life. It cuts like broken glass…full of bitter, intelligent, unvarnished truth." —Variety. "A powerful, darkly funny play about the cosmic collision between the sun of love and the comet of desire." —Newsweek Magazine. "In its cutting contemporary picture of sexual desire and emotional failure, CLOSER is a brilliantly unusual virtual reality that rings true. The best new play on Broadway." —NY Observer. Tues 4/22 FIT TO BE TIED by Nicky Silver Featuring Patrick Christiano, Stephanie Brussell and an ensemble cast TBD. Fit To Be Tied, a clever little gem by acclaimed playwright Nicky Silver, is a quirky four character comedy about the power of love. The story, a mother/son conflict, concerns Nessa (Stephanie Brussell) and Arloc (Patrick Christiano). The play begins 30 years after the death of Nessa's wealthy husband, who left all his money to Arloc, now a desperately lonely recluse. Nessa, a "flamboyant, fast-talking, heavy drinking, promiscuous woman," is in a loveless marriage with an allowance from Arloc that is never enough. The story takes off when Arloc kidnaps Boyd, an Angel in the Radio City Christmas show, but when Nessa (having left her husband) arrives at his door, the zany tale of love and redemption kicks into high gear with many surprises along the way. First produced in New York by Playwrights Horizons in October 1996, The NY Post said, "Silver strikes gold when he’s being funny. Here he is very funny indeed and the more outrageous he becomes, the funnier he gets." Patrick Christiano is a New York based actor, writer, producer and a member of the Drama Desk. He is the Theater Critic for Dan's Papers (Gordin & Christiano) and recently published the website www.theaterlife.com. He last appeared on stage in New York as Felix in The Owl and The Pussycat at the Abingdon Theater. He and Ms Brussell met when they played mother and son in Bury the Dead at Guild Hall.

Light refreshments served. Free Admission Sun 4/6 – Sun 6/22 Paper Transformed—Origami Based on an 800-year-old tradition of paper folding, modern origami has grown into a highly sophisticated international art form. Paper Transformed—Origami brings together nearly one hundred works by some of the world’s leading contemporary origami artists and demonstrates the diversity of technique and wide range of interpretation possible in origami today. For at least 400 years, the Japanese have been folding paper for pleasure. Creasing a thousand cranes out of white paper (the only type originally available) was thought to bring good luck. Before 1900, there were rarely more than thirty folds in origami patterns; now there may be hundreds—yet only one piece of paper may be used and it cannot be cut or glued. Nothing is added and nothing taken away. Although the advent of computer technology has expanded the ways in which patterns can be created today, this is still the essence of origami. This exhibition will afford visitors an opportunity not only to admire a breathtaking expanse of large- and small-scale works but also to create their own. Renowned origami expert Florence Temko has produced several unique folding patterns for visitors to use in the galleries. Paper Transformed—Origami has been organized by Mingei International Museum, San Diego, California, and will be exhibited for the first time on the East Coast at the Parrish. Sat 4/5 Champagne preview 5:00 pm Parrish Premier members will enjoy a personal tour of the exhibition and champagne reception with Dr. Robert J. Lang, one of the world’s leading masters of the art of Origami. (Parrish Contributor Members and higher) Sat 4/5 Members’ Only Opening and Reception 6:00 pm Join Dr. Robert J. Lang for a fascinating lecture and demonstration. His repertoire includes some of the most complex origami designs ever created. Lang’s work combines aspects of the Western school of mathematical origami design with the Eastern emphasis upon line and form


to yield models that are at once distinctive, elegant, and challenging to fold. A reception will follow. Open to All Parrish Members, reservations are required. Call 631-283-2118, ext. 49, email membership@parrishart.org or visit parrishart.org for more details. Art After School After School Art workshops are exhibition based and designed for children to have the opportunity to tour the galleries, learn about the works of art on view, and create their own artwork.

Starring Fatoumata Coulibaly, Maimouna Helene Diarra. In Jula and French with English subtitles. 124 minutes. Throughout his career Ousmane Sembene has explored the hardships facing African women and their capacity for resilience and heroism. The subject of Moolaadé is female circumcision, and the film’s title refers to a protective spirit invoked by a woman (Collé) on behalf of six young girls seeking sanctuary from the “purification” rite. The village elders are angered by Collé’s action but at the same time they must respect the tradition of moolaadé, which only she can revoke. According to The New York Times, “Moolaade is certainly a potent and timely polemic against a custom that many Africans are turning against, but its dramatic richness comes from the generous, patient precision with which Mr. Sembene observes that social order in all its complex, sometimes contradictory aspects.” Sun 4/13 The Art Barn Take Two: The Westhampton Collection of Jerome and Ellen Stern 2:00 pm The Art Club is re-visiting the unconventional display area built by Jerome and Ellen Stern to house their extensive art collection. Located on a 16-acre Westhampton estate, which is home to many extraordinary site-specific art installations, the 7,500 square foot Art Barn is devoted solely to the couple’s collection of contemporary sculpture and photography.

Kadosh takes place in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish enclave of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem and tells the story of two sisters -- Rivka, who has been married for ten years but is childless, and Malka, who is in love with a singer and resists family pressure to marry a religious zealot. The father of Rivka’s husband, a rabbi, believes a woman’s only purpose is to bring children into the world and is urging his son to divorce Rivka and marry a younger woman. Kadosh is a searing portrait of a community that crushes the spirit of its citizens -- especially its women – with strict laws and traditions. Sat 4/19 Saori Weaving Demonstration 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Free with Museum admission Founded by Misao Jo (born in Osaka, Japan in 1913) in 1970, Saori is a contemporary hand weaving technique that utilizes a unique loom that is light, foldable and simple to manage.

Shortly after moving to East Hampton, Carol began a series of paintings depicting dogs on the beach; just dogs, no people. These paintings were inspired by the canine social scene at local beaches and depicted the dogs pretty much as they are or as she envisioned they aspire to be: playing, swimming, socializing and sunning themselves. The Dog Lover's Guide to the Good Life attempts to make the readers aware of the most interesting, unusual, fun activities and places for people and their dogs. It is an “eye opener” to the types of venues that exist and how to find these venues where you live or travel.

Kirtan (chanting) is a part of the path of Devotional Yoga. When we see the beauty of our own being we are seeing the beauty of the Being that is the One of which we are all a part. And when we turn towards that One, Love is the natural reaction of the heart. Satsang is where people gather together, to remember, to turn within and find their own inner path to the One. When we gather together to sing like this we are helping each other find our own paths. We all must travel this path by ourselves because each of us is our own path. All these paths wander on in their own way, but in truth we are all traveling together and until the last of us arrives we will all keep traveling. So let's sing! There will be chairs, as well as floor seating. For floor seating please bring a meditation cushion, pillow and/or blanket.

ALISON RESTAURANT 95 School Street Bridgehampton 11932 537-7100 Info@Alisonrestaurant.Com MONTAUK POINT STATE PARK 631-668-5000 Seals on Long Island : During the cooler months, some special visitors from the north come to Long Island starting in mid-November. They return to Northern New England and Canada in May. Seals belonging to the Pinniped family (meaning “feather footed” or “winged”), are true seals which lack external earflaps, have torpedo shaped bodies for fast swimming. They have long, sharp claws to help them dig into the ice while climbing out of the water or onto the beach. Unlike sea lions, their front flippers are short and they are referred to as “earless” seals. Their hind flippers are webbed and pointed backwards to help them swim. They have been recorded swimming over 12 miles per hour and have been spotted swimming 70 miles off of the coast of Long Island. Seals haul out of the water to rest, sleep, and warm up in the sun’s heat. While on land sunning themselves, they are often seen in a “banana” shaped position. The seals we see on Long Island are most often Harbor seals, but there are a few other types, such as harp seals, grey seals, hooded seals, and ringed seals. Numbers have been increasing in past years into the thousands around Long Island due to the changing location of their food sources and the changing temperatures of their watery habitat. Most of the seals that visit Long Island are younger seals. These marine mammals eat a variety of crustaceans, fish and shellfish like mussels, clams, oysters and squid. Seal Observation Walks Dates & Times: April 14th (1pm); 22nd (9am); 28th (1pm). Meet at the Montauk Point concession area. $5/person ($3 for children) plus a $6 vehicle parking fee. Call for reservations and


additional information. Join Mike Bottini on a 3 mile (round trip) hike to view seals and learn about their habits, behavior, and population trends in the Long Island region. Dress warm and wear comfortable hiking shoes; we will be outdoors for 2.5 hours. Binoculars recommended but not necessary. Mike will bring a spotting scope that everyone will get a chance to use. This program is sponsored by New York State Parks, and is scheduled to coincide with low tide, when seals are most likely to be basking on the rocks. MONTAUK POINT LIGHTHOUSE 324-8144 Montauk Pt. Lighthouse open weekends 10:30am SOUTH FORK NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM 377 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton 537-9735 Reservations are required for all events.

Fees include admission to the museum on the day of the program. Sat 4/5 The Diamondback Terrapin- Past and Current Threats to Its Survival 11:00 am Program Leader: Russell Burke, PhD. The Diamondback Terrapin lives year-round in the bays and estuaries of Long Island. It is named for the diamond patterns on its shell. Prized for its meat, from the mid-1800s until the early twentieth century this turtle was harvested in huge numbers to make soup. By the mid-1930s terrapins had become so rare in the Long Island-New York City region that naturalists thought the species was locally extinct. Fortunately, since that time, terrapin populations in many areas have slowly and steadily recovered. This recovery is now threatened by a number of new pressures. Russell Burke has for many years studied the Diamondback Terrapin population of the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, a unit of Gateway National Recreation Area, one of the most important urban wildlife refuges in the United States. In this talk he will introduce you to the fascinating Diamondback, discuss past and current threats to its survival, and tell you about the research he is doing to better understand the population of these reptiles. Sun 4/13 The Buzz About Insects 9:30 am – 10:30 am for Children ages 3-5, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm for Children ages 6-9 Program Leader: Lindsey Rohrbach, SoFo Nature Educator. Did you know that there are many more kinds of insects on earth than any other kind of living creature? In this program with Lindsey, children will put together an insect - using Play-doh, pipe cleaners, and egg cartons - while they learn that insects are animals with exoskeletons, six pairs of legs, and three body parts. There will be an extra $5 fee for materials. Sat 4/19 Birding by Ear 9:00 am in Sag Harbor For Children and Adults Walk Leader: Crystal Possehl, SoFo Nature Educator. When it is once again warm enough outside to open windows, many people look forward to hearing the songs of birds. Often the feathered composer is not visible, but it is still possible to identify the mystery bird by its song. Join Crystal on this family nature walk to learn how to identify some of our more common birds by their songs and calls, and be sure to bring binoculars so you can catch a glimpse of the birds you hear. Sun 4/27 Cavity-Nesting Birds of Long Island 9:00 am in Sag Harbor. Adult Program Program Leader: Joe Giunta. Many birds use holes in trees for nesting. The size of the hole in the tree determines what bird is likely to nest there. Join Joe, SoFo’s engaging birding enthusiast, on this walk as he searches for the many cavity-nesting birds we have on the South Fork, including woodpeckers, nuthatches, titmice, chickadees and bluebirds. *Children over the age of 12 may attend.

Sat 4/12 Randy Kaplan "Guitarist Randy Kaplan knows something about kids -- to the toddlers of Park Slope, Brooklyn, he's as recognizable as Elmo from his coffee house morning shows and pre-K gigs. But as his first record for children shows, he's also an excellent musician and songwriter... combining refreshingly straightforward takes on traditional folk songs." -M.J. Wilson / WORDPRESS.com "With a bunch of groupies under the age of five... Kaplan, who released five CDs for grown ups before putting out his first kids' album, is continuing to celebrate with performances that all of his fans can enjoy. Five Cent Piece, a mix of Kaplan's own original work as well as covers of Mom and Dad's favorites, will have ears of all ages perking up. Parents will appreciate classic Stones with "You Can't Always Get What You Want," while their offspring may lean more towards songs about city apartment inhabitants - namely mosquitoes and roaches. The lyrics are silly "they're tryin' on your underwear, checkin' out your grocery list, reading your copy of Metamorphosis" - and parents will laugh too, getting the joke that's years over their kids' heads." -Sophie Friedman / TIME OUT NEW YORK KIDS Sat 4/19 Vegetables Destiny Sat 4/26 Galapagos George PK-5 and families, 45 + minutes, Tabletop rod puppets. This show was inspired by the true story of "Lonesome George," a giant tortoise who was discovered in 1971 on an island in the Galapagos where his species was believed to have become extinct. This show features the incredible music of composer, Eric Weinberg, who blends music styles as varied as the wildlife of this magical archipelago! Sixteen rod puppets of sea lions, lizards, blue-footed birds and a growing tortoise cavort on an island stage while the audience sees George's story unfold. George is just a hatchling when the show starts, but he sure does get big! This show is an excellent vehicle for learning about man's impact on the environment for audiences of all ages. This show was funded in part by a grant from the Puppeteers of America Endowment Fund.

Have you ever heard of mead? Have you ever tried mead? Maybe you tried mead while visiting Europe or at a medieval festival? Have you been told that mead was like beer, a beer with honey or even a wine with honey? Mead has some similarities to these beverages, but it is so much more it deserves its own category. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of honey as its primary sugar source and is often referred to as honey wine. Being made from honey, one would naturally expect it to be very sweet and although it usually is, it can actually range from dry to very sweet. Mead is usually still, though it can be made sparkling and can range from a mild low alcoholic content up to very high. Mead is arguably the oldest alcoholic beverage on the planet with some evidence dating it back approximately 10,000 years. Due to many different cultural and financial reasons, mead has fallen out of favor over the many years and now we call it the 'oldest alcoholic beverage no one has ever heard of.' A far cry from its hey day when it was referred to as the 'Nectar of the Gods.' Mead can be produced in many variations including a plain honey wine (traditional - honey only), flavored with fruit (melomel), spices (metheglin), vegetables, or any combination of ingredients limited only by the imagination of the wine maker and the resources he has at hand.

Fri 4/11 Blaggards 10:00 pm $10 The Blaggards bring a no-holds-barred rock and roll attitude to whatever muscial genre they care to tackle... obscure rockabilly tunes, a country song or two, a pop hit from the 1960s, some classic blues, songs from singer/songwriters, or an occasional surf instrumental. Central to their quarter-a-song, roadhouse jukebox rock 'n' roll theme, they shun the worn-out formula of endless classic rock tune retreads and bland interpretations of "the hits.” "The guys put a lot of effort into keeping it fresh and their range is wide and deep. Plus, they have a real identifiable sound, all strong players, and are clearly having a good time up there... here's a band, on the scene, playing the heck out of it, for the sheer joy of doing so, making the crowd dance." - Gene Casey of The Lone Sharks – Sat 4/12 Second Shift 8:00 pm $10 Classic Rock Covers Sat 4/12 The Realm 10:30 pm $10 The Realm is a local original rock/surfrock band with hints of Police style reggae.

Tues 5/6 ARCADIA by Tom Stoppard Featuring an ensemble cast TBA. Winner of the 1995 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play and the 1994 Olivier Award. This play moves back and forth between 1809 and the present at the elegant estate owned by the Coverly family. The 1809 scenes reveal a household in transition. As the Arcadian landscape is being transformed into picturesque Gothic gardens, complete with a hermitage, thirteen year old Lady Thomasina and her tutor delve into intellectual and romantic issues. Present day scenes depict the Coverly descendants and two competing scholars who are researching a possible scandal at the estate in 1809 involving Lord Byron. This brilliant play moves smoothly between the centuries and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between classical and romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex - the attraction that Newton left out - on our life orbits. "Pure entertainment for the heart, mind, soul The best Broadway play for many, many a season. It is a work shot through with fun, passion and, yes, genius." - NY Post "Stoppard's richest, most ravishing comedy to date; a play of wit, intellect, language, brio and ... emotion. It's like a dream of levitation: you're instantaneously aloft, soaring, banking, doing loop the loops.... The playwright is a daredevil pilot who's steady at the controls." - NY Times "Full of complex ideas and pleasures one expects from this master of dramatic composition." - Time Out. Tues 5/20 Staged Reading of a Farce TBA A Farce to be announced Presented by Spindletop Productions Featuring Jonathan Peters, Jon De Sane and an ensemble cast TBA. Jonathan Peters and Jon De Sane, the actors who delivered the successful farce Don’t Dress For Dinner by Marc Camoletti for Spindletop Productions at the John Drew Theater in 2002, reunite to explore the possibility of another zany production for East End audiences.

Free Admission Sun 4/6 – Sun 6/22 Paper Transformed—Origami Based on an 800-year-old tradition of paper folding, modern origami has grown into a highly sophisticated international art form. Paper Transformed—Origami brings together nearly one hundred works by some of the world’s leading contemporary origami artists and demonstrates the diversity of technique and wide range of interpretation possible in origami today. For at least 400 years, the Japanese have been folding paper for pleasure. Creasing a thousand cranes out of white paper (the only type originally available) was thought to bring good luck. Before 1900, there were rarely more than thirty folds in origami patterns; now there may be hundreds—yet only one piece of paper may be used and it cannot be cut or glued. Nothing is added and nothing taken away.


Although the advent of computer technology has expanded the ways in which patterns can be created today, this is still the essence of origami. This exhibition will afford visitors an opportunity not only to admire a breathtaking expanse of large- and small-scale works but also to create their own. Renowned origami expert Florence Temko has produced several unique folding patterns for visitors to use in the galleries. Paper Transformed—Origami has been organized by Mingei International Museum, San Diego, California, and will be exhibited for the first time on the East Coast at the Parrish. Art After School After School Art workshops are exhibition based and designed for children to have the opportunity to tour the galleries, learn about the works of art on view, and create their own artwork. Artist and educator Wendy Gottlieb leads the workshops and develops projects that include pottery, painting, and drawing. After School Art is free of charge. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Please call 631-283-2118, ext. 30 to register.

Starring Lothaire Bluteau, Aden Young, Sandrine Holt, August Schellenberg. In English. 101 minutes. Founded in the sixteenth century, the Jesuits were an order of Catholic priests loyally devoted to the Pope and firm in their mission to teach and convert those who had no knowledge of Christianity. In Black Robe, Jesuit missionary Father Laforgue sets out to save the souls of the Huron and Algonquin Indians in the hostile and perilous wilderness of 17th century New France. The missionary finds himself increasingly alienated by Indians’ culture and troubled by his own spiritual crisis. Black Robe won six Canadian Genies, including Best Picture, Best Direction and Best Adapted Screenplay. Sat 5/3 Adult Origami Workshop 10:00 am – 1:00 pm $50 Parrish Members / $65 Non-Members The workshop will include a brief history of origami and its current development as an art form as well as instruction in folding techniques, reading basic diagrams and the creation of models and ideas.

Instructor MaryAnn Scheblein-Dawson has conducted workshops throughout the metropolitan area, most recently as part of the New York Botanical Garden’s Kiku exhibition. Fri 5/9 Film: The Apostle (1997) 7:00 pm $5 Parrish Members/$7 Non-Members Directed by Robert Duvall. Starring Robert Duvall, Farrah Fawcett, Billy Bob Thornton. In English. 134 minutes. Oscar-winning actor Robert Duvall plays Texas preacher Euliss "Sonny" Dewey, who reacts to his wife’s infidelity by brutally beating her lover. He leaves town, changes his name, and relocates to rural Louisiana, where he resumes preaching as “The Apostle E.F.” and helps revive an old church. Duvall used real gospel preachers and extras carefully selected from parishes of the Deep South, and the film treats its characters with nuance and complexity. The San Francisco Chronicle called the film “a warm, multifaceted study of a man who’s part snake-oil salesman, part loving father, part servant of God and part womanizing hothead.” Robert Duvall received one of his six Best Actor nominations for his portrayal of “Sonny” Dewey. Fri 5/16 Film: The Secret Life of Words (2005) 7:00 pm $5 Parrish Members/$7 Non-Members Directed by Isabel Coixet. Starring Sarah Polley, Tim Robbins, Julie Christie. In English. 115 minutes. Hannah, a taciturn nurse who has survived the war in Yugoslavia, works in a factory in Britain. When her supervisor insists she take a vacation, she travels to Northern Ireland, where she winds up taking a job as a nurse on an oil rig. There she tends Josef, a heroic burn victim. While it captures the claustrophobic atmosphere of life on an oil rig, the film focuses on the developing relationship between the timid, hearing-impaired Hannah and the critically injured Josef, and the mysteries of Hannah’s background that are only gradually revealed. Fri 5/16 Identity and Survival: Films on Religion and Immigration 7:00 pm Free Our spring film series focuses on two provocative themes – religion and immigration – as explored in recent films by directors from Senegal, Israel, Iran, Afghanistan, Spain, Australia, Ireland and the United States.

Turnbull, who holds degrees in cinema studies from City College and Harvard and has taught film at colleges in the U.S. and abroad.

Told from the point of view of 11-year-old Christy, the film portrays New York as a challenge and an adventure.

Produced and directed by Vanessa Gould. Running time approximately 60 minutes. The filmmaker will be present to introduce the film and answer questions from the audience.

SAG HARBOR WHALING & HISTORICAL MUSEUM 200 Main St. Sag Harbor 725-0770 Thurs 5/15 Museum reopens for Public Tours Sat 5/24 Summer Exhibit opens: Oil! Whales, Wells... What Next? OIL! We travel the globe in search of this natural resource and wonder if something can be found to take its place? Finding enough oil to sustain the nation’s energy needs is one of our greatest challenges. This exhibition is about oil – no, not only the oil we burn today, but also the whale oil and other illuminants that we burned a century ago – which show how market pressures, foreign interests, and the scarcity of raw materials can lead to innovation and problem-solving. This exhibition is about the oil we use for lighting and other energy needs in contemporary life. Since the 1700s, we’ve become less dependent on natural daylight to illuminate our work, our homes and leisure activities. But prior to the modern electrical age, every means of producing artificial light depended upon a substance that could be burned to produce a flame. All illuminants came from animal, vegetable or mineral sources: whales or hogs; olives or canola; and coal gas or early petroleum distillates, such as kerosene. Along the way, our quest for oil laid the ground work for powerful global markets and industries. With the invention of the internal combustion engine in the late 19th century and its rapid assimilation for transportation in the 20th, the petroleum market rose to dominance in our total energy demand. Facing a similar crisis to what the whaling industry faced more than one hundred fifty years ago, the petroleum industry is now experiencing its own set of challenges— with economic, environmental and geopolitical concerns weighing heavily on consumers’ minds. The question is: What new energy source, or combination of sources, will fulfill the future energy needs of our planet? As we exhaust our natural resources – first the whales and then petroleum – we look to renewable energy sources as the solution.

Join SoFo and Frank Quevedo of the Town Hatchery staff to see how the Town raises ten million seed shellfish --- hard clams, oysters, and bay scallops --- for the purpose of restocking public shellfish beds in Town and surrounding State waters, beds that were devastated in the mid-1980s by the region-wide series of smothering algae blooms (brown tide). On this tour of the hatchery, housed in one of the last remaining structures from the World War II Naval Torpedo Range in Montauk, you will have an opportunity to understand shellfish breeding and spawning, see the larval stages and early juvenile rearing of millions of these animals, plus the food production systems that allow them to grow. This visit is a prelude to a summertime flatbottom boat ride to the inlet of Napeague Harbor to see where and how the Town “grows-out” these clams, scallops, and oysters for later seeding.

CUSTER INSTITUTE Main Bayview Road, Southold 765-2626 Every Saturday from Sunset ‘til midnight, weather permitting, Custer staff will be on hand to assist you in observing the night sky using Custer's telescopes, and to answer your questions about astronomy and the organization itself. The Darkest Skies of any Observatory on Long Island! Sat 5/10 Probing The Night Sky With The World's Most Powerful Microscope 8:00 pm Suggested Donation: $10 Members; $13 Non-Members; $5 Students.


Can the forces of nature be unified? What is the nature of dark matter? These are the questions that physicists from around the world will explore when the world's largest and most powerful microscope – the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European particle physics laboratory CERN in Switzerland – begins colliding protons later this year. It will provide an unprecedented look at the universe under conditions where our current understanding breaks down and new phenomena might be observed, and the exciting connections between physics at microscopic and astronomical scales will be explored at the LHC in the coming years. Speaker: Dr. George Redlinger is a staff physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory, where he is a member of the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. When he is not thinking about supersymmetry and dark matter, he works on making the paradigm shift from classical to jazz piano. Wed 5/21 Branding, Marketing & Advertising Your NONPROFIT 7:00-9:00 pm Suggested donation: $25 Members; $35 Non-Members. In this troubled economy, funding is difficult to obtain. Effectively positioning your organization, enhancing its image and promoting its efforts are essential. This seminar will cover issues that should be of active concern to every nonprofit: branding, marketing and advertising. Make sure that your cause is known and that your nonprofit will attract public and foundation dollars. Whether you're just starting out or have been around for years, you will undoubtedly learn something that will enhance your organization and be of benefit to its survival. The instructors (Dr. Raymond Knab, Liz Irwin, and Audrey Watson Wigley) have over 90 years of collective experience in nonprofit management, fundraising, marketing and graphic art design. If you would like to purchase the CD containing materials covered in the seminar and more, the cost is $7.50 additional. Refreshments provided. Pre-registration by May 16th required: please email CusterDonna@yahoo.com. Sat 5/31 Seminar: How To Do An Astronomy Project 3:00-6:30 pm Participating in science fairs is important for a number of reasons. The process of selecting and conducting a project increases appreciation for and understanding of scientific methodology and provides greater insight into the discipline under study. Participation can also enhance a student's resume and lead to scholarships: winning local fairs leads to regional ones, then national and international competitions such as the Intel ISEF (which will distribute $4 million in awards and scholarships in 2008). The potential rewards are great so it's important for all involved to prepare for the competition. This seminar is intended for teachers and students (and helpful parents). A team of presenters will cover all aspects of doing an astronomy project: from selecting a topic and finding resources to carrying out the research and writing up the presentation. Feel free to bring your ideas for discussion and development. Participants are welcome to remain (no additional charge) for Dr. Helio Takai's presentation, "Demonstrations in Physics (or Life Outside the Box)" at 8PM (see below). Afterward, there will be a tour of the observatory's facilities and observing through powerful telescopes (weather permitting). Presenters include members of Custer's Research Committee (Peter Guastella, Science Research Teacher at Manhasset High School and Vice President of the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair; Dr. Jeffrey Owen Katz, Custer Observatory Director; Steve Orlando, Chemistry Teacher at BOCES; schedule permitting: Dr. Chiaki Yanagisawa, Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, SUNY Stony Brook) and David Cohn, Director of the Educational Projects Network. Refreshments provided. Participants will include winners of 2008 LISEF awards. Suggested donation: $20 Adults, $10 Students, and free to all students (grades 9-11) who register to present their projects at Custer's Astronomy Science Fair on October 4, 2008. Reservations suggested. To register for Custer's fair or reserve seats at the seminar, contact CusterDonna@yahoo.com or call 631-765-2626. Sat 5/31 Demonstrations In Physics (Or Life Outside The Box) 8:00-9:00 Suggested donation: $10 Members; $13 Non-Members; $5 Students. Physics is a basic science that is the foundation for many other areas of knowledge. It is simple and elegant, yet it is often considered one of the most difficult subjects in high school. Through a series of live demonstrations, Dr. Helio Takai will make it easier to understand physics from classical to modern, a span of over five centuries of knowledge. Demonstrations will involve light, sound, gravity, electricity, magnetism, semiconductors, Brownian motion and particle physics; each demo will describe a phenomenon and how it is of relevance to daily life. This presentation is for all ages. Presenter: Dr. Helio Takai is a physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory and is a member of Custer's Research Committee.

Have you ever tried mead? Maybe you tried mead while visiting Europe or at a medieval festival? Have you been told that mead was like beer, a beer with honey or even a wine with honey? Mead has some similarities to these beverages, but it is so much more it deserves its own category. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of honey as its primary sugar source and is often referred to as honey wine. Being made from honey, one would naturally expect it to be very sweet and although it usually is, it can actually range from dry to very sweet. Mead is usually still, though it can be made sparkling and can range from a mild low alcoholic content up to very high. Mead is arguably the oldest alcoholic beverage on the planet with some evidence dating it back approximately 10,000 years. Due to many different cultural and financial reasons, mead has fallen out of favor over the many years and now we call it the 'oldest alcoholic beverage no one has ever heard of.' A far cry from its hey day when it was referred to as the 'Nectar of the Gods.' Mead can be produced in many variations including a plain honey wine (traditional - honey only), flavored with fruit (melomel), spices (metheglin), vegetables, or any combination of ingredients limited only by the imagination of the wine maker and the resources he has at hand.

June GUILD HALL 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Fri 6/6 – Sat 6/14 Guild Hall presents MUDasMAN productions: the prophecy of Isaiah 6/6 8pm, 6/7 8pm, 6/8 3pm, 6/13 8pm, 6/14 Two Shows! 3pm and 8pm @ the Boots Lamb Education Center $10 / $8 members The prophecy of isaiah is a new sociopolitical performance piece that pulls material straight from the headlines and onto the stage. In the tradition of such artists as Moises Kauffman and the Tectonic Theatre Project, the prophecy of isaiah begins with quotes and documentation from the world around us, and weaves it into high drama with an inspiring message about the need for change. We are invited to consider with fresh ears the words of politicians, news people, religious leaders, military officials, radio personalities, writers and finally Jesus in order to emphasize the rift between the world prophets plead for and the one we live in now. The piece is mediated by its writer and director, Isaac Klein, an East Hampton native who adapted the play from a manuscript written by his father Art Klein. the prophecy of isaiah had its world premiere in Catskill, NY in April, 2007 where Mr. Klein Sr. now lives. The piece was revived as part of the launch of Mr. Klein Jr.’s theatre company, MUDasMAN, at the Times Square Arts Center in November of 2007. MUDasMAN productions is a group of multi-disciplinary theatre artists whose mission is to create new and exciting work in the New York area. In November of 2007, MUDasMAN launched their company with a festival of four groundbreaking new works at the Times Square Arts Center in New York City: dreamscape, a movement-based exploration of the unconscious world; the prophecy of isaiah, a performance piece about the rift between modern Christianity and the words of Christ; Lacy Hoodoo, an absurdist take on a Russian news article; and Appalling Revelations: The Trials of Niles Kindly, a satirical take on the works of Charles Dickens. The members of MUDasMAN strive to continually reinvigorate their collaborative process, in order to create work that is inquisitive, innovative and communal. MUDasMAN is currently developing three new plays by Michael Daniel Anderson; a new installment of Appalling Revelations: The Trials of Niles Kindly; and a new musical by Bridget Regan, Ashley Robinson and Jerzy Gwiazdowski.

Fri 6/20 Christine Ebersole & Billy Stritch Perform at Guild Hall’s Season Opener to Benefit The John Drew Theater 7:00 pm @ East Hampton Point in East Hampton, 7:00 pm Cocktail Reception, 8:00 pm Dinner. 9:00 pm Stritch & Ebersole Sizzle! Limited Seating Ticket prices: $500 Guild Hall kicks off its 2008 Summer Season. Following dinner and cocktails at East Hampton Point in East Hampton, Broadway’s Tony award winning Christine Ebersole (Grey Gardens) and jazz pianist-singer Billy Stritch will perform an exciting evening of jazz, theater and pop songs, which USA Today calls "Show Stopping!" The evening will benefit the renovation of Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater. Seating is limited. "I can't think of a more potent combination of sophistication and talented musicians than Christine Ebersole and Billy Stritch." - Hal Prince, American theatrical producer and director. Guild Hall’s renovation is almost complete! However, the closure of the theater this summer will provide another opportunity to move the John Drew Theater out into the community. We will be offering programming at diverse new locations, tailoring performances to the distinctive atmosphere of each of our venues. For more information, please contact the Guild Hall’s Development Office 631 324-0806 or check the website www.guildhall.org Sat 6/21 – Sun 7/27 Guild Hall Exhibition Inspired by the Light: Landscapes by East End Masters Sat 6/21 Reception 5:30 pm -7:00 pm An exhibition featuring three of the most renowned Landscape painters of our time who are all East End residents: Jane Wilson, Jane Freilicher, and April Gornik. The unifying feature being the landscape and the noted Light of East End which has inspired countless artists from the 19th century to the present. Jane Frieliche's realism has been called gestural realism because she tries to capture the movement of the moment to create a sensual experience for the viewer. Many of her subjects are fields and waterscenes from her Long Island summer home at Watermill, but she is also challenged by the irregular geometry of New York City architecture. April Gornik's landscape paintings are large, but not as vast as the limitless vistas she offers to the imagination. Most depict soaring trees, vast horizons, and serene reflections on bodies of water in vague, unnamed places. In most works she has erased all evidence of the hand of man. Gornik works to create an art not only of visual appeal, but one which engages the mind as well. Regarded as among the deans of American landscape painting, Jane Wilson grew up in an Iowa farming community where changing weather conditions were much noted and discussed. Given this background, Wilson developed a strong attachment to the ephemeral qualities of changing weather and also gained a profound appreciation of nature as an event. While her work has evolved over the years from austere to lush and light filled landscapes, her paintings continue to celebrate times of day, the seasons and the weather. Sun 6/22 Poet Philip Schultz reads from new book “Failure” 4:00 Pm Free in the Boots Lamb Education Center


Poet Philip Schultz will read from his new collection Failure, a meditation on dreams and desires. From a driven immigrant father to an old poet, Philip Schultz gives voice to failures in poems that are direct and wry. He evokes other lives, too — family, beaches, dogs, the pleasures of marriage, New York City in the 1970s, "when nobody got up before noon, wore a suit/or joined anything" — and a mind struggling with revolutions both interior and exterior. Born and raised in Rochester, New York, Philip Schultz is the author of five collections of poetry, most recently Living in the Past. He has received awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Academy of American Poets. He is the author of five collections of poetry, including the National Book Award nominee Like Wings. A recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, he is also the founder of the Writers Studio in New York. He lives in East Hampton, New York. "Philip Schultz is a hell of a poet, one of the very best of his generation, full of slashing language, good rhythms, surprises, and the power to leave you meditating in the cave of his poems." — Norman Mailer GUILD HALL Moran and Spiga Galleries and Boots Lamb Education Center 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Museum Hours Thurs – Sat 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Sun 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm Sat 5/10 – 6/7 70th Annual Artist Members Exhibition (Last Names A-L) Guild Hall’s 70th Artist Members Show is the oldest non-juried exhibition remaining on Long Island.

Award recipients will be announced during the opening reception. The two top Honors winners will each be awarded a solo exhibition at Guild Hall which will be given within a timely fashion according to the needs of the Museum.

Free Admission Sun 4/6 – Sun 6/22 Paper Transformed—Origami Based on an 800-year-old tradition of paper folding, modern origami has grown into a highly sophisticated international art form. Paper Transformed—Origami brings together nearly one hundred works by some of the world’s leading contemporary origami artists and demonstrates the diversity of technique and wide range of interpretation possible in origami today. For at least 400 years, the Japanese have been folding paper for pleasure. Creasing a thousand cranes out of white paper (the only type originally available) was thought to bring good luck. Before 1900, there were rarely more than thirty folds in origami patterns; now there may be hundreds—yet only one piece of paper may be used and it cannot be cut or glued. Nothing is added and nothing taken away. Although the advent of computer technology has expanded the ways in which patterns can be created today, this is still the essence of origami. This exhibition will afford visitors an opportunity not only to admire a breathtaking expanse of large- and small-scale works but also to create their own. Renowned origami expert Florence Temko has produced several unique folding patterns for visitors to use in the galleries. Paper Transformed—Origami has been organized by Mingei International Museum, San Diego, California, and will be exhibited for the first time on the East Coast at the Parrish. Fri 6/6 Film: Hotel Rwanda (2005) $5 Parrish Members|$7 Non-Members Directed by Terry George. Starring Don Cheadle, Nick Nolte, Sophie Okonedo. In English. 122 minutes. Both Cheadle and Okonedo received Oscar nominations for their powerful portrayals of a hotel manager and his wife in strife-torn Rwanda. Paul is a Hutu. His wife Tatiana is a Tutsi.

When the country descends into anarchy and slaughter, Paul at first hides his wife and family in the hotel, then more Tutsis, until the hotel becomes a sanctuary for more than 1000 people.

This event is a must for every gardener and garden lover. Stephanie Copeland, President of The Mount – Estate & Gardens, will transport you to the Lenox, Massachusetts home of Pulitzer-prize winning author, Edith Wharton. An authority on European landscape design, Wharton envisioned her gardens as a series of outdoor rooms and architectural compositions juxtaposed with the surrounding natural landscape. Recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation with the National Preservation Honor Award, The Mount has undergone significant restoration in recent years. To date, under Copeland’s leadership, over $3 million has been invested in the preservation and restoration of The Mount’s gardens and grounds. Wendy Goodman, Interior Design Editor of New York magazine brings us to the West Coast to the home of American artist and design legend Tony Duquette. Known for his over-the-top style in interiors, jewelry, costume, and set design, Duquette was honored as the first American artist with a solo exhibition at the Louvre Museum in Paris. With his wife, Elizabeth, Duquette transformed his 150 acre ranch in the Malibu Mountains into a living work of art. The Duquettes integrated a series of architectural components inspired by their extensive international travels into the landscape creating a panorama of whimsy which paralleled Duquette’s many artistic pursuits. Finally, Peter J. Hatch, Director of Gardens and Grounds at Monticello will take us inside the gardens of Thomas Jefferson’s venerable estate. Inheriting the property from his father, Jefferson began building Monticello at the age of twenty-six and improved upon and maintained the property as his primary residence until his death at age eighty-three. A dedicated gardener, Jefferson’s estate contained nearly 500 different types of fruits and vegetables, countless varieties of flowers, and a grove of carefully selected trees.

SOUTHAMPTON HISTORICAL MUSEUMS AND RESEARCH CENTER Rogers Mansion 17 Meeting House Lane (631) 283-2494 Fri 6/6 “Our Southampton: Family Stories And Food Traditions” 11:00 am – 1:00 pm Free Book signing and tasting with Jackie Scerbinski and Nina Kennedy in celebration of the publication of their book, “Our Southampton: Family Stories and Food Traditions.” Ms. Scerbinski, a professor at the City University of New York, and trustee of the Southampton Historical Mu-seum, and Ms. Kennedy, a former New York City advertising executive and graphic designer who now uses her skills in Southampton , are both village residents. They embarked on their collaboration with the idea of collecting traditional local recipes but were so captivated by the memories the recipes evoked that the empha-sis evolved and the book became a compendium of wonderful personal stories (with recipes)of a not-so-long-ago but simpler Southampton. The authors interviewed more than 75 longtime residents, whose memories had much in common—the friendliness and closeness of family and neighbors, the lure of crullers from Crutchley’s and dinner at John Duck’s. “We were amazed, often moved almost to tears and always entertained by the stories,” say the au-thors. “Our Southampton” is priced at $14.95 and can be purchased at the Southampton Historical Museum gift shop as well as at area bookstores.

Sat 6/14 – Sat 8/30 Sporting Life in the Hamptons: The Lillywhite Family Collection Tuesdays through Saturdays 11:00 am - 4:00 pm $4 adults, free for members and children 17 and under History of Sports Exhibit Opens the Hamptons Summer Season: This exhibit will not only represent those early sporting interests in the Hamptons but will also show for the first time a unique Family legacy collection. From The Lillywhite Family Museum, located in Florida, the exhibit includes sports memorabilia, sporting goods, books, photographs and other ephemera associated with the Lillywhite family of sportsmen and sports business entrepreneurs of the Victorian and gilded Ages of England, Bermuda and the United States. In 1894, the members of The Meadow Club, in Southampton, New York, invited Harry Lillywhite to manage the grounds and installation of their lawn Tennis courts. He had previously installed lawn courts in Saratoga Springs and Bayshore, New York as well at the Lawrence Canoe Club in Massachusetts. Harry, his son William and daughter Charlotte, decided that Southampton and its summer colony represented a good opportunity to establish a sporting goods business that would cater to out-of-doors sporting enthusiasts. So, in 1895, Harry Lillywhite & Son was established on Job’s Lane, providing a large array of tennis, golf, croquet and other sports equipment as well as selling, renting and repairing bicycles. The Southampton store was in business for 106 years, under 4 generations of Lillywhite’s and is now the location of Stevenson’s Toys. Harry immigrated permanently to the US in 1886 where he had previously lived from 1856 to 1859 in New York working as a professional cricketer. He was born in 1838 in Brighton, Sussex, England and was the son of Frederick William Lillywhite (the famous nonpareil cricketer and professional at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London). Frederick William had established a cricketing and sports outfitters from his home in London in 1844. After his death in 1854, four of his sons (John, James, Sr., Frederick and Harry) and his nephew James, Jr., continued his sporting interests and enterprises in one form or another. Frederick continued to publish cricket scores, biographies, books and sport prints. John, besides continuing his illustrious cricketing career, opened a cricket and sports


equipment business on Euston Square, London. Upon John’s passing, James, Jr. joined the firm. James, Sr. became the cricket coach at Cheltenham College in Gloucestershire, England, and also established a sports outfitter there as well as London. Near the turn of the century, all of these enterprises coalesced and resulted in the famous Lillywhites Ltd. sports store located on Piccadilly Circus, London and Harry Lillywhite & Sons, Southampton. Sat 6/14 Opening Reception 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm Free Sat 6/21 Curator’s Talk 2:00 pm Free Jack Lillywhite, director of The Lillywhite Family Museum, will talk about the development of sporting culture in the Hamptons and his grandfather’s well-known sporting goods store located on Job’s Lane for 110 years. Sat 6/14 – Sat 8/30 “Lighthouse Paintings by Ellen d’ Pazzi” Tuesdays through Saturdays 11:00 am - 4:00 pm $4 adults, free for members and children 17 and under The Countess de’ Pazzi has a long history in Southampton - she has been painting, writing poetry and recording the lives and work of East End artists for most of her 94 years. During the 1960s she organized an artist cooperative in Southampton that promotes artists to this day. She has shown her paintings and read her poems in cultural centers, museums and galleries on Long Island. Her latest biography, “David Burliuk: His Long Island and His World” (Writers Ink Press, 2007) was featured at an exhibit of that artist’s work at Stony Brook U. in 2008. She has donated her collection of papers (1964-2002) and 111 video recordings of interviews with East End artists seen on a local cable program to the Smithsonian.

Have you ever tried mead? Maybe you tried mead while visiting Europe or at a medieval festival? Have you been told that mead was like beer, a beer with honey or even a wine with honey? Mead has some similarities to these beverages, but it is so much more it deserves its own category. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of honey as its primary sugar source and is often referred to as honey wine. Being made from honey, one would naturally expect it to be very sweet and although it usually is, it can actually range from dry to very sweet. Mead is usually still, though it can be made sparkling and can range from a mild low alcoholic content up to very high. Mead is arguably the oldest alcoholic beverage on the planet with some evidence dating it back approximately 10,000 years. Due to many different cultural and financial reasons, mead has fallen out of favor over the many years and now we call it the 'oldest alcoholic beverage no one has ever heard of.' A far cry from its hey day when it was referred to as the 'Nectar of the Gods.' Mead can be produced in many variations including a plain honey wine (traditional - honey only), flavored with fruit (melomel), spices (metheglin), vegetables, or any combination of ingredients limited only by the imagination of the wine maker and the resources he has at hand.

Thurs 7/3 – Thurs 8/21 The John Drew Theater Playwrights' $200 per section July 7/3, 7/17, 7/31 8/14 (Section A) and 7/10, 7/24, 8/7 and 8/21 (Section B) Workshop Ages: Adults 18+ The JDT Playwrights' Workshop will uncover the hidden writing talent that lives out here in the Hamptons. Our first meeting will lay out the ground rules of giving and receiving constructive feedback. Participants will have the opportunity to hear their scene or monologue in each session and will receive individual feedback from the group. In-depth, hands-on, and practical, the emphasis will be maintaining the writer’s essential vision. The goal of the workshop is to spark the playwrights to engage deeply with their work and be supplied a fresh perspective. Any dialogue that can be performed can be workshopped, as long as it was written by a workshop member. What is so exciting about the workshop process is that everyone is actively participating in the creative process. A feedback loop of creative activity is unleashed so all writers can achieve their maximum potential. Selected finished work will be eligible for special readings within The Naked Stage reading series.The workshops will be led by Joshua Perl, founder and executive director of The Naked Stage. The Naked Stage has been bringing quality theatrical events to the East End for over seven years. An award-winning graduate of the MFA Creative Writing program at Southampton College, Josh brings a lifetime's worth of experience as a writer, actor, director, dancer and professor to lead this exciting new venture. Each section will meet every other Thursday from 6:15 to 9:00 in the Boot Lamb Education Center at Guild Hall.

Kurt Weill: Sing Me No Love Songs starring Melissa Errico and George Dvorsky 7:30 pm at the Bridgehampton Community House Hosted by Lee Davis. Produced by Patricia Watt. Kurt Weill was a German composer, and an American citizen from 1943. He was a pupil of Humperdinck, Busoni and Jarnach in Berlin; their teaching informed his early music, including the choral Recordare and the Concerto for violin and wind, the latter also influenced by Stravinsky. But the deeper influence of Stravinsky, coupled with an increased consciousness of music as a social force, led Weill to a rediscovery in the mid-l920s of tonal and vernacular elements, notably from jazz, in his cantata Der neue Orpheus and one-act stage piece Royal Palace, written between two collaborations with the expressionist playwright Georg Kaiser. His next collaborator was Brecht, with whom he worked on The Threepenny Opera, The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahogany and Happy End, all of which use the corrupted, enfeebled diatonicism of commercial music as a weapon of social criticism, though paradoxically they have become the epitome of the pre-war culture they sought to despise. In 1933 he left Germany for Paris, where he worked with Brecht again on the sung ballet The Seven Deadly Sins. Then in 1935 he moved to the USA, where he cut loose from the European art-music tradition and devoted himself wholeheartedly to composing for the Broadway stage, intentionally subordinating aesthetic criteria to pragmatic and populist ones. Melissa Errico has starred on Broadway in My Fair Lady, High Society, Amour and Dracula. She has been in plays by Wilde, Shaw and Wally Shawn off-Broadway, and appeared in television and film. She makes regular concert appearances in New York, made her debut album, Blue Like That, for Manhattan Records/EMI, and developed a strong relationship with her musical idol, the 4-time Oscar-winner, jazz musician, composer and conductor Michel Legrand. Her second studio recording, Another Life, was produced by the legendary Phil Ramone in 2005. She is married to Patrick McEnroe, tennis player, commentator and US Davis Cup team captain. George Dvorsky has appeared on Broadway in The Producers, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Passion, Cinderella, Brigadoon, Marilyn: An American Fable, and The Best Little Whorehouse. He has made numerous Off-Brodway appearances, and performed in regional theater all over the country. George has performed at Carnegie Hall and The Kennedy Center. MOVIES AT GUILD HALL 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Tues 7/1 Smiles of a Summer Night 7:30 pm $5 non-members $3 members The Boots Lamb Education Center, Guild Hall Directed by Ingmar Bergman. 1955, 108 minutes. Swedish w/ English subtitles After fifteen films of mostly local acclaim, the 1956 prize-winning comedy Smiles of a Summer Night at last ushered in an international audience for director Ingmar Bergman. Set in turn-of-the-century Sweden, four women and four men attempt to juggle the laws of attraction amidst their daily bourgeois life. When a weekend in the country brings them all face to face, the women ally to force the men's hands in their matters of the heart, exposing their pretentions and insecurities along the way. Chock full of flirtatious propositions and sharp-witted wisdom delivered by such legends of the Swedish screen as Gunnar Björnstrand, Eva Dahlbeck, Harriet Andersson, and Ulla Jacobsson, Smiles of a Summer Night is one of film history's great tragicomedies, a bittersweet view of the transience of human carnality. Tues 7/8 Viridiana 7:30 $5 Non-members/$3 Members The Boots Lamb Education Center, Guild Hall Directed by Luis Buñuel 1961, 90min. Spanish w/ English subtitles Banned in Spain and denounced by the Vatican, Luis Buñuel’s irreverent vision of life as a beggar’s banquet is regarded by many as his masterpiece. In it, novice nun Viridiana does her utmost to maintain her Catholic principles, but her lecherous uncle and a motley


assemblage of paupers force her to confront the limits of her idealism. Winner of the Palme d’or at the 1961 Cannes Film Festival, Viridiana is as audacious today as ever. Tues 7/15 Shoot the Piano Player $5 Non-members/$3 Members The Boots Lamb Education Center, Guild Hall Directed by François Truffaut 1960, 81min. French w/ English subtitles François Truffaut is drunk on the possibilities of cinema in this, his most playful film. Part thriller, part comedy, part tragedy, Shoot the Piano Player relates the adventures of mild-mannered piano player Charlie (Charles Aznavour, in a triumph of hangdog deadpan) as he stumbles into the criminal underworld and a whirlwind love affair. Loaded with gags, guns, clowns, and thugs, this razor-sharp homage to the American gangster film is pure nouvelle vague. Tues 7/22 Woman in the Dunes $5 Non-members/$3 Members The Boots Lamb Education Center, Guild Hall Directed by Hiroshi Teshigahara 1964, 147min. Japanese w/ English subtitles One of the sixties' great international art-house sensations, Woman in the Dunes was for many the grand unveiling of the surreal, idiosyncratic worldview of Hiroshi Teshigahara. Eija Okada plays an amateur entomologist who has left Tokyo to study an unclassified species of beetle that resides in a remote, vast desert; when he misses his bus back to civilization, he is persuaded to spend the night in the home of a young widow (Kiyoko Kishida) who lives in a hut at the bottom of a sand dune. What results is one of cinema’s most bristling, unnerving, and palpably erotic battles of the sexes, as well as a nightmarish depiction of everyday Sisyphean struggle, for which Teshigahara received an Academy Award nomination for best director. GUILD HALL Moran and Spiga Galleries and Boots Lamb Education Center 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Museum Hours Thurs – Sat 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Sun 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm Sat 6/21 – Sun 7/27 Guild Hall Exhibition Inspired by the Light: Landscapes by East End Masters An exhibition featuring three of the most renowned Landscape painters of our time who are all East End residents: Jane Wilson, Jane Freilicher, and April Gornik. The unifying feature being the landscape and the noted Light of East End which has inspired countless artists from the 19th century to the present. Jane Frieliche's realism has been called gestural realism because she tries to capture the movement of the moment to create a sensual experience for the viewer. Many of her subjects are fields and waterscenes from her Long Island summer home at Watermill, but she is also challenged by the irregular geometry of New York City architecture. April Gornik's landscape paintings are large, but not as vast as the limitless vistas she offers to the imagination. Most depict soaring trees, vast horizons, and serene reflections on bodies of water in vague, unnamed places. In most works she has erased all evidence of the hand of man. Gornik works to create an art not only of visual appeal, but one which engages the mind as well. Regarded as among the deans of American landscape painting, Jane Wilson grew up in an Iowa farming community where changing weather conditions were much noted and discussed. Given this background, Wilson developed a strong attachment to the ephemeral qualities of changing weather and also gained a profound appreciation of nature as an event. While her work has evolved over the years from austere to lush and light filled landscapes, her paintings continue to celebrate times of day, the seasons and the weather.

Rain date: Tuesday, July 29, 4 pm Tues 7/29 Film Screening: Michael Schindhelm's 'Bird’s Nest-Herzog & de Meuron' 5:00 – 7:00 pm Free Attend a screening at the Parrish Art Museum of Schindhelm’s new film, ‘Bird’s Nest-Herzog & de Meuron’ on the building of the Olympic Stadium in Beijing.Filmmaker Michael Shindhelm will be on hand to introduce the documentary and to discuss his experience recording the construction of this stunning and monumental Olympic Stadium, designed by internationally renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron. The firm’s other projects include the expansion of the Tate Modern in London, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the de Young Museum in San Francisco and the design concept for the new Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill. Christoph Schaub and Michael Schindhelm’s documentary looks at how Chinese culture influenced the construction of the Olympic stadium as well as the work of the architects. This straightforward look at the specific architectural form and the struggle to achieve it gives viewers an insider’s look at Chinese society, culture and everyday life. The National Stadium is situated on a gentle rise in the center of the Olympic complex to the north of Beijing. Herzog & de Meuron’s most important principle throughout has been to develop an architecture that will continue to be functional following the Games in 2008, to create a new kind of urban site that will attract and generate public life in that part of Beijing. Significantly, the Chinese themselves nicknamed the stadium “Bird‘s Nest” in the very early stages of the project, assimilating it as their own, before it had even left the drawing board. From the distance, the stadium looks like a gigantic collective shape, like a vessel whose undulating rim echoes the rising and falling ramps for spectators inside the stadium. From this distant perspective, one can clearly distinguish not only the rounded shape of the building but also the grid of the load-bearing structure, which encases the building, but also appears to penetrate it. What is seen from afar as a geometrically clear-cut and rational overall configuration of lines, evaporates the closer one comes, finally separating into huge separate components that look like a chaotic thicket of supports, beams and stairs, almost like an artificial forest. Wed 7/30 Performing Arts Series: Geist Visual Comedian 2:00 pm $10 non-members Outlandish visual comedy will transform the stage into a whirlwind of energy as Geist combines his unique vaudevillian routines with mime, juggling, physical comedy and tons of zany audience participation.

The Hamptons attract visitors from around the world, while local residents include renowned authors, artists and musicians. Pianofest offers daily lessons and pianists attend the lessons of their colleagues. Also, they participate in weekly public master classes, often televised. Lessons and master classes are conducted by Pianofest's Director, Paul Schenly, and guest artists, such as Yefim Bronfman, Andre Watts, Richard Goode, Anton Nel, Claude Frank, Arie Vardi and Yoheved Kaplinsky, all of whom participated in the past. Many students have appeared in performance on television. Students also perform in private homes and give a Grand Marathon Concert in the Avram Family Theater in Southampton. In 1996, Pianofest released its first compact disc recording, featuring student and faculty artists. Faculty in 2006 will include Arie Vardi, with others to be announced. Many Pianofest participants are engaged to perform at Hampton music festivals and other local venues, such as the Southampton Cultural Center, the Montauk Library, The Brookhaven National Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and others.

The perfect Way to start your weekend in the Hamptons! The sessions consist of coaching and exercises to deepen meditation through the use of sound. The session leader, Jim Owen, is a landscape designer who maintains a daily spiritual practice. Mr. Owen propounds the use of sound vibrations to foster mental alignment with the universe making meditation a true pleasure. Mr. Owen says, “The purpose of using sound before meditation is to allow sound to align the vibrations of the human energy field. Sacred sounds assist the mind in turning inward and focusing on itself.” A member of LongHouse Reserve’s Garden Committee, Mr. Owen also believes in using sound to enhance the spiritual dimension of gardening. The sessions will be held by the Buckminster Fuller Fly's Eye Dome in the quiet of the LongHouse gardens


(indoors in case of inclement weather). Attendees should bring a pillow or beach chair. Please make reservations by calling 631.329.3568 or email soundmeditation@longhouse.org. Mon 7/7 Twilight Tour 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Cost is $30 per person or $55 for two, with LongHouse members receiving a per-person discount of $5. By Reservation Only - maximum 15 people per tour. Wandering through LongHouse gardens when you are alone is a very special experience, even on a blustery March day.

This exhibition, organized by Sanford Hirsch, executive director of the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation, surveys that period and includes several unique impressions, as well as rare images from very small editions. A catalogue with an essay by Richard S.

Show continues through July 17th. Meet photographer Jake Rajs who will be on hand to sign copies of his new book and to attend the opening reception of photographs from his new book Beyond the Dunes: A Portrait of the Hamptons. With and introduction by Paul Goldberg, Jake's incredible color photographs are a brilliant testimony to all that we love about this special place. Though he had toyed with other media, such as painting and sculpture, and even identified himself as a poet for a while, there was another form of creative expression out there for Jake Rajs. “I saw a book of poems and photographs, and thought ‘what a great idea.’ So I got myself a camera. The poetry wasn't as good as the photography. I found I could say it better without words. Artists use a different vehicle to


express themselves. For me, it's the camera.” Once he found his tool, he then worked on building his experience. After graduating from Rutgers with a B.A. in Studio Art, Jake began by assisting other photographers in New York City (By washing floors and toilets) and then by pounding on pavement and doors. “I got my first assignment, and then another, then people just started buying my work.” Since those humble beginnings, Jake has published thirteen books, from one focusing on New York City that came out in 1985 to These United States, an enormous limited edition coffee table book with an introduction by Walter Cronkite. In fact, it was in part because of that collection, published by Rizzoli in 2003, that Jake was selected as “Best Observer” in Reader's Digest special issue featuring America’s 100 Best. Rajs was born in Poland and moved to Israel before coming to Brooklyn at age eight. ”My father came first, while we were in Israel, maybe it’s my childhood memory talking, but we came on a ship. It took two weeks, and then we arrived in New York harbor. We were all on deck, it was nighttime, and we see the Statue of Liberty and everyone’s crying, I’m crying. Then, early in the morning, we were watching the sun hit the skyline, and everything turns golden. People came for their dreams.” Over the years, Jake has focused on New York City and the United States, clocking by his own estimation a million miles criss-crossing the nation. ”You should focus on something you know and you care about. It is my sincerest hope that my images go beyond mere representation to communicate emotionally and spiritually.” For his part, Rajs feels his work serves a greater purpose. My motivation is to help humanity, by showing beauty or giving another perspective on whatever subject I’ve chosen. I get to express myself and have fun along the way. Sat 7/19 Meet the Author: Paul Saltzman 6:00 pm –7:30 pm. Show continues through August 14th Meet photographer Paul Saltzman who will be on hand to sign copies of his limited edition book and attend the opening reception for an exhibit of photographs from the book The Beatles in India. In February, 1968, Paul Saltzman traveled to the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram in Rishikesh, India to learn meditation. His time there was profoundly life changing. While there, he met John, Paul, George and Ringo, and over the following days, as they hung out together, he took some photographs. Paul’s time with the Beatles had been intimate and private moments for him. Although each of the Beatles had given him explicit permission to take their pictures, when he returned home he put his Ektachrome transparencies away in a cardboard box in his basement, and forgot about them. Thirty years later, his daughter reminded him of the photographs. These never before seen photographs are available in a stunning limited edition book.

ALISON RESTAURANT at The Maidstone Arms, 207 Main Street, East Hampton 324-5004 Thurs 7/24 Victoria Lustbader & her new novel Stone Creek 6:00 pm 3 Courses $39.00 per person An unforgettable novel of tremendous emotional heft, Stone Creek brilliantly illuminates how the powers of love and loss transform the human heart. In the small town of Stone Creek, a random encounter offers two lonely people a chance at happiness.Danny, a young widower, still grieves for his late wife, but for the sake of his five-year-old son, Caleb, he knows he must move on. Alone in her summer house, Lily has left her workaholic husband, Paul, to his long hours and late nights back in the city. In Stone Creek, she can yearn in solitude for the treasure she's been denied: a child. What occurs when Lily and Danny meet is immediate and undeniable–despite Lily being ten years older and married. But ultimately it is little Caleb's sadness and need that will tip the scales, upsetting a precarious balance between joy and despair, between what cannot happen…and what must.An unforgettable novel of tremendous emotional heft, Stone Creek brilliantly illuminates how the powers of love and loss transform the human heart Thurs 7/31 Kelly McMasters & her new memoir Welcome To Shirley 6:00 pm 3 Courses $39.00 per person A tribute to the strength and beauty of the town McMasters grew up in, and an attempt to restore dignity and hope to the town she loves. McMasters traces the downfall of the place once known as The Town of Flowers from a promising summertime beach community to a desperate and broken place, filled with desperate and broken people. The story of Shirley parallels that of a nearby federal nuclear research facility and Superfund site, which covertly sprung up alongside the town behind the cover of the Pine Barrens. Three leaking nuclear reactors and countless chemical spills have released carcinogens into Shirley, and in 1996 the families of a childhood cancer cluster and other town residents afflicted with breast, thyroid, and lung cancers sued after the lawyer from Love Canal took their case. While it’s impossible not to grieve for the multitudes of parents of lost children and the children of lost parents to whom McMasters introduces her readers, WELCOME TO SHIRLEY demonstrates powerfully that–even with the evidence on their side– justice is elusive, particularly when it involves a town that everyone, including those who live there, regards as disposable.3 Courses $39.00 per person per person MONTAUK POINT LIGHTHOUSE 324-8144 Sat 7/19 Second Annual Night at the Light at Montauk Lighthouse 5:00 – 8:00 pm $75 per person The 2nd Annual Night at the Light our Long Island Wine tasting event at the Montauk Lighthouse.

Free side-by-side tastings of Bridge Lane White Merlot and Bridge Lane Red Merlot LONG ISLAND MEADERY 1347 Lincoln Avenue Suite 11, Holbrook 11741 285-7469 Have you ever heard of mead? Have you ever tried mead? Maybe you tried mead while visiting Europe or at a medieval festival? Have you been told that mead was like beer, a beer with honey or even a wine with honey? Mead has some similarities to these beverages, but it is so much more it deserves its own category. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of honey as its primary sugar source and is often referred to as honey wine. Being made from honey, one would naturally expect it to be very sweet and although it usually is, it can


actually range from dry to very sweet. Mead is usually still, though it can be made sparkling and can range from a mild low alcoholic content up to very high. Mead is arguably the oldest alcoholic beverage on the planet with some evidence dating it back approximately 10,000 years. Due to many different cultural and financial reasons, mead has fallen out of favor over the many years and now we call it the 'oldest alcoholic beverage no one has ever heard of.' A far cry from its hey day when it was referred to as the 'Nectar of the Gods.' Mead can be produced in many variations including a plain honey wine (traditional - honey only), flavored with fruit (melomel), spices (metheglin), vegetables, or any combination of ingredients limited only by the imagination of the wine maker and the resources he has at hand.

services to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth and young adults throughout Long Island. ON THE BAY 2008 will be hosted by Diamond Ranch’s Stan Simon and the members of the On the Bay Committee, comprised of co-chair Joseph Pasquino, Honorary Committee members Carson Kressley, Congressman Tim Bishop, NYS Assembly Patricia Eddington, Congressman Steve Israel, Marc Levine, Cliff Love, Deanna Annis, Duke Morell, Arne Besser, Robert Marc, Mario Bosquez, Lizz Salaway, Frederico Azevedo and Edward Wilkerson, LIGALY executive director David Kilmnick and Robert Vitelli. The invitation-only guests will enjoy an afternoon highlighted by a Luxury Silent Auction of premium items and services, sumptuous food and drink, and VIP Guest gift bags. For further information, go online to www.ligaly.org. This is the 4th annual On the Bay event, which has consistently boosted awareness, interest and funding for LIGALY – an affiliate organization of the Long Island GLBT Health and Human Services Network, an umbrella group that provides administrative and fundraising support to its three affiliate organizations: LIGALY, the Long Island GLBT Community Center, and SAGE-LI (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders - Long Island). LIGALY was founded in 1993 to fill several vital social needs, including helping GLBT youth come to terms with their sexuality at the critical stage of self-discovery, and providing GLBT youth with a genuine community of friends and advocates. Most important, LIGALY works to protect GLBT youth from the harassment, violence and murder that too frequently destroy their safety, health, self-esteem, and their very lives, as was the case with the highly-publicized killings of Charlie Howard, Brandon Teena and Matthew Shephard. According to the Human Rights Campaign, hate crimes against the GLBT community rank third, right behind those based on race and religion, and young people are particularly vulnerable to often-hostile neighborhood, school and home environments. To address these issues, the Bay Shore-based LIGALY offers a comprehensive assortment of programs and activities, including peer education/sensitivity programs and others geared to educators and families; leadership development and youth empowerment programs; a comprehensive anti-violence program; a large, fully-equipped meeting center; and a mental health center, help hotline, Internet café, and book and video library. LIGALY also sponsors an annual talent contest, a dance troupe and several newsletters.

In her original and eloquent book, Gingy, as Ilene is called, tells the story of her life through the clothes she wore. From her Brownie uniform to her Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress, Gingy offers a closet full of memories. She remembers her prom dresses, her wedding dresses, and her starting-over-her-new-life dresses. Gingy is Everywoman. She's a wise old friend who's survived divorce, the death of a child, the quirks of friends and family, crushes and heartbreak and bursts of joy and happiness. Like all of us, she likes to look nice while she's pursuing happiness. In Love, Loss, and What I Wore, Gingy invites us to reflect on our own lives and remember what we wore.

(Rain date: Sunday Aug 31 at same times) Mon 9/1 – Sun 11/30 ARTlink ARTlink integrates the visual, literary and performing arts into the school curriculum through student tours and workshops, strengthening the relationships between Guild Hall, the students, their families and the community. This program is important for numerous reasons: Guild Hall is a unique educational resource; art has the power to expand imaginations and observation skills; through art, students can gain insight into today’s world as well as the history of other cultures; through Guild Hall exhibitions, students can explore our contemporary art community as well as its rich history; we can offer an opportunity for students to stretch their creativity with hands-on art, music or literary activities; and together we can make a connection between the visual and performing arts, classroom curriculum as per the New York State Learning Standards. Exhibition tours are designed in combination with teachers and administrators, or are based on an interactive discussion between students and artists/docents. Parents are invited to participate and discuss new concepts. Specific focus materials, age appropriate discussions and follow up projects are planned for each individual class. For example, with a recent exhibition, "Hamptons Gardens: A 350 Year Legacy," children learned about growth and planting, landscape design, local history, early photography, sculpture gardens, nature’s symmetry, Realism, and Impressionism. For younger children, our Andy Warhol exhibitions allowed them to explore color, common themes in Pop Art, local history, and poetry. This program is three-fold: an introduction to the works in the classroom, an on-site tour of the exhibition, and a follow-up workshop which would integrate the visual arts into course work. Students were also treated to a workshop with poet Scott Chaskey, who workshopped poems and sketches with Montauk School children at the Warhol Preserve, and off-site component of Guild Hall's ARTlink program. ARTlink offers an opportunity for students to stretch their creativity beyond the classroom instruction with hands-on visual art, music, or literary activities. Using the visual and performing arts, we are making a connection between students in the classroom and their families and the broader community. Call 631 324-0806 for information. GUILD HALL Moran and Spiga Galleries and Boots Lamb Education Center 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Museum Hours Thurs – Sat 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Sun 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm Sat 8/9 – Sun 10/19 Guild Hall Museum Exhibition: Larry Rivers Gala Preview Fri 8/8 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm Reception Sat 8/9 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm Larry Rivers was born Yitzak Loiza Grossberg in the Bronx, New York City on August 17, 1923. He was the son of Ukrainian immigrants, Samuel and Sonya Grossberg. He began playing the piano as a child, then switched to the saxophone; as a teenager his musical career began by playing in jazz bands. His name was changed when a nightclub comedian introduced his group as "Larry Rivers and his Mudcats." In 1944, after supporting himself for several years as a musician, and doing a stint in the U.S. Army Air Corps, he enrolled at the Julliard School to study composition. About the same time he met painter Jane Freilicher who introduced him to the world of visual art. Rivers continued to support himself as a musician, but began studying painting with Hans Hofmann in 1947. With funding from the GI Bill he enrolled in the Fine Arts program at New York University where he worked with William Baziotes. He earned a Bachelor's degree in art education in 1951, but didn't become a teacher as he had planned. Instead he developed a career that focused on painting but included music, stage design, acting, filmmaking and writing poetry and prose. He was a facile draftsman whose art work formed a connection between the Abstract Expressionism of the 1940s and 1950s and Pop Art in the 1960s. He was fascinated by great painting and among his most noted paintings were his personal renditions of some of the world's classics: Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware, Dutch Masters, I Like Olympia in Blackface from Manet. The subjects of his figurative paintings were family, history, politics and sex. His oil paintings included the use of stencils, cutouts, blank canvas and image reversals and he often painted family members.Rivers was married to Augusta Burger in late 1945; they had two boys, Joseph who was her son from a previous marriage, and Steven. In 1961 he married Clarice Price; they had two daughters, Gwynne and Emma. In the 1970s he had another son, Sam, with the painter Daria Deshuk. He died on August 14, 2002 of cancer in his home in Southampton, New York and was memorialized with a service here at Guild Hall that same month. Larry Rivers was an artist whom we had hoped to exhibit when he passed away 5 years ago. We will exhibit a few major works from key museums, Washington Crossing the Delaware from the MoMA , Double Portrait of Birdie from the Whitney, The Studio from the Minneapolis Art Institute, O’Hara Nude with Boots from the Larry Rivers Foundation and a few others. Sat 8/23 Gallery Talk with Curator Christina Mossaides Strassfield 3:00 pm


About the Larry Rivers: Early Major Works exhibition, which The New York Times reviewed and found to be "... an exciting show." This is free with museum admission. MOVIES AT GUILD HALL 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Tues 8/5 À nos amours 7:30 pm The Boots Lamb Education Center, Guild Hall Directed by Maurice Pialat 1983, 102min. French w/ English subtitles With his raw style of filmmaking, Maurice Pialat has been called the John Cassavetes of French cinema, and the scorching À nos amours is one of his greatest achievements. In a revelatory film debut, the dynamic, fresh-faced Sandrine Bonnaire plays Suzanne, a fifteen-year-old Parisian who embarks on a sexual rampage in an effort to separate herself from her overbearing, beloved father (played with astonishing magnetism by Pialat himself), ineffectual mother, and brutish brother. A tender character study that can erupt in startling violence, À nos amours is one of the high-water marks of eighties French cinema. Tues 8/12 Picnic at Hanging Rock 7:30 pm The Boots Lamb Education Center, Guild Hall Directed by Peter Weir 1975, 107min. Australian, in English Over thirty years after it swept Australia into the international film spotlight, Peter Weir's stunning 1975 masterpiece remains as ineffable as the unanswerable mystery at its core. A Valentine's Day picnic at an ancient volcanic outcropping turns to disaster for the residents of Mrs. Appleyard's school when a few young girls inexplicably vanish on Hanging Rock. A lyrical, meditative film charged with suppressed longings, Picnic at Hanging Rock is at long last available in a pristine widescreen director's cut with a newly-minted Dolby® digital 5.1 channel soundtrack. Sat 8/16, Sat 8/23, Sat 10/11 Larry Rivers, Public and Private 3:00 pm A Film by Lana Jokel. 1992, 75 minutes. Larry Rivers was known for being outspoken, irreverent, and having a quick wit. Rivers appropriates images of historically established masterpieces and transforms them into his personal vision. Interviews in the film include Rivers, his dealer Pierre Levari, art historian and critic Sam Hunter, author Arnold Weinstein, his ex-wife Clarice and his children. Sun 8/17. Sun 9/14, Sun 10/12 Pull My Daisy Tues 8/19 Rules of the Game 7:30 pm The Boots Lamb Education Center, Guild Hall Directed by Jean Renoir 1939, 106min. French w/ English subtitles Widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made, Jean Renoir’s masterpiece The Rules of the Game is a scathing critique of corrupt French society cloaked in a comedy of manners. At a weekend hunting party, amorous escapades abound among the aristocratic guests and are mirrored by the activities of the servants downstairs. The refusal of one of the guests to play by society’s rules sets off a chain of events that ends in tragedy. Poorly received upon its release in 1939, the film was severely re-edited, and the original negative was destroyed during World War II. Only in 1959 was the film fully reconstructed and embraced by audiences and critics who now see it as a timeless representation of a vanishing way of life. Tues 8/26 L'eclisse 7:30 pm The Boots Lamb Education Center, Guild Hall Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni 1962, 126min. Italian w/ English subtitles The conclusion of Michelangelo Antonioni’s informal trilogy on modern malaise, L’eclisse (The Eclipse) tells the story of a young woman (Monica Vitti) who leaves one lover (Francisco Rabal) only to drift into a relationship with another (Alain Delon). Using the architecture of Rome as a backdrop for the couple’s doomed affair, Antonioni reaches the apotheosis of his modernist style, returning to his favorite themes: alienation and the difficulty of finding connections in an increasingly mechanized world.

Thurs 8/7 Artists’ Studio Tours: Terry Elkins and Steve Miller 11:00 am When Terry Elkins first visited the East End some thirty years ago he was an abstract painter. After moving here full-time in 1987, his work began to change and he gradually became a painter of masterful landscapes. Steve Miller’s paintings are also inspired by the world, but more often it’s a world invisible to the naked eye. His “Protein Series,” for example, takes its imagery from molecular biology and developed out of research by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Rod MacKinnon. Terry Elkins and Steve Miller occupy separate quarters in a Wainscott potato barn originally converted into studios by the artists Frank Stella and Neil Williams. Here’s a chance to visit two unusual studios and meet two talented artists. Each Studio Visit: $25 Parrish Members / $30 Non-Members. Fri 8/8 A Conversation with Chuck Close and Terrie Sultan at Longhouse Reserve 5:30 pm In 2003 Terrie Sultan organized Chuck Close Prints: Process and Collaboration, the seminal exhibition exploring this key aspect of Close’s creative process. As Close told her “Every innovation in my paintings has come about as a direct result of something I discovered in making a print.” During the research and development of the exhibition and publication, the curator and artist had many opportunities to discuss a range of topics related to art, and especially the complex and collaborative nature of printmaking. For this program, Sultan and Close will engage in an interview style dialogue intended to illuminate Close’s approach to art-making and how painting, photography, and printmaking inform his work. A reception will follow. More information is available at www.longhouse.org. Admission is $10 for Longhouse Reserve Members and $20 for Non-Members. To reserve a place call, 631-329-3568 or email events@longhouse.org Fri 8/8 “Fridays @ Noon”: Jackson Pollock and Sand “,,,akin to the method of the Indian sand painters in the West.” Pollock once likened his “drip” style to the Native American Sand painters of the Southwest and in this talk we’ll look at this preeminent American painter and his artistic confreres and their fascination with the alchemical powers of sand. Free with museum admission. Sat 8/9 Beach Houses: A Talk by Alastair Gordon 6:00 pm As the foremost authority on the modern architecture of the East End, Alastair Gordon knows the region’s “secret history” -- the architectural landmarks and curiosities that are more often than not inaccessible to the average person. His illustrated talk will reveal fascinating locales and surprising details about the region’s beach houses. An award-winning journalist, historian and critic, Gordon’s books include Romantic Modernist: The Life and Work of Norman Jaffe, Architect, Weekend Utopia: Modern Living in the Hamptons, Naked Airport, Beach Houses: Andrew Geller, and the forthcoming Spaced Out. A book signing and reception will follow. $5 Parrish Members/$10 Non-Members. Thurs 8/14 Artists’ Studio Tour: Michelle Stuart 11:00 am Travel has provided both physical materials and inspiration for Michelle Stuart’s art for more than thirty years. Her wall pieces and installations, which have been exhibited at and collected by museums around the world, have ranged from monochrome encaustic abstractions to three dimensional work using soil, feathers, fossils, vegetation and objects. When not traveling, the artist works in New York City and at her Amagansett studio, the former home of first generation Abstract Expressionist Conrad Marca-Relli. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit with this extraordinary artist. Each Studio Visit: $25 Parrish Members / $30 Non-Members. Fri 8/15 “Fridays@ Noon”: The World in a Grain of Sand 12:00 pm Deputy Director, Education, Cara Wingfield will consider artists whose work addresses charged issues through the use of sand. Free with museum admission. Thurs 8/21 Artists' Studio Tours: Connie Fox and William King 11:00 am Painter Connie Fox and sculptor William King are pillars of the East End art community. Though they met briefly in Berkeley in the 1960s, it wasn’t until 1980 in East Hampton, when they were the two violins in Audrey Flack’s Bluegrass Band, that they again met and became engaged. They married 23 years later! Both artists have exhibited and been collected widely. King’s inimitable long-limbed figures are humorous, fragile and enigmatic. Fox uses the full range of abstraction’s vocabulary – drips, scratches, scumbles, blobs, stains, washes – to create her complex, audacious paintings. $25 Parrish Members / $30 Non-Members. Fri 8/22 “Fridays @ Noon”: South Seas Getaway 12:00 pm Many artists have thought about getting away from it all—from Gauguin in the 19th century to Dorothy Dehner and David Smith in the 1930s— and this talk will feature glimpses of some of the artists who have made the escape to a desert isle. Free with museum admission. Fri 8/29 “Fridays@ Noon”: Littoral Drift: Avery, Katz, Porter 12:00 pm In this talk we’ll explore the world of three American artists whose work is indelibly linked with stunning visions of the sea and the shore.

Arvo Pärt’s Summa, which its composer arranged from an earlier choral work, provides a spiritual prelude to Mendelssohn’s daredevil Sextet, an early work that, notwithstanding its “late” opus number, he wrote at age 15. Stephen Williamson, Peter Kolkay, David Krauss, David Finlayson, Colin Jacobsen, Ayano Ninomiya, Nicholas Cords, Edward Arron, Donald Palma, Pedja Muzijevic, Ayano Kataoka, Roger Waters Wed 8/13 Classical Composure 7:30 pm Tickets $30 Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church The penultimate of Beethoven’s full-scale piano trios is often overshadowed by those that surround it, the Ghost and Archduke. Not fair this is a work of genius, too, if more poised and “Classical” than its neighbors. Poise also envelops Fauré’s C-minor Piano Quartet, alleviating the disillusionment he funneled into it after a failed love affair. A lyric, heartfelt gem by Aaron Jay Kernis, in a new arrangement by the composer for flute and strings, holds its own between these chamber classics. Marya Martin, Ani Kavafian, Soovin Kim, Che-Hung Chen,

The perfect Way to start your weekend in the Hamptons! The sessions consist of coaching and exercises to deepen meditation through the use of sound. The session leader, Jim Owen, is a landscape designer who maintains a daily spiritual practice. Mr. Owen propounds the use of sound vibrations to foster mental alignment with the universe making meditation a true pleasure. Mr. Owen says, “The purpose of using sound before meditation is to allow sound to align the vibrations of the human energy field. Sacred sounds assist the mind in turning inward and focusing on itself.” A member of LongHouse Reserve’s Garden Committee, Mr. Owen also believes in using sound to enhance the spiritual dimension of gardening. The sessions will be held by the Buckminster Fuller Fly's Eye Dome in the quiet of the LongHouse gardens (indoors in case of inclement weather). Attendees should bring a pillow or beach chair. Please make reservations by calling 631.329.3568 or email soundmeditation@longhouse.org. Mon 8/11 & Mon 8/25 Twilight Tour 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Cost is $30 per person or $55 for two, with LongHouse members receiving a per-person discount of $5. By Reservation Only - maximum 15 people per tour. Wandering through LongHouse gardens when you are alone is a very special experience, even on a blustery March day. But on a summer evening as the shadows grow longer, the croaks of the frogs louder, the songs of the birds fade to nothing and twilight gradually makes way for night, the gardens are enchanting, both visually and spiritually. Wine will be served. Abby Jane Brody, a Trustee and member of the Garden Committee of LongHouse and the East Hampton Star's garden columnist, Star Gardener, will lead the group through the gardens to plants that are at their peak and to spaces that are particularly beautiful in the twilight hours. You may either email twilighttours@longhouse.org or telephone 631.329.3568 for your reservations.

Have you ever tried mead? Maybe you tried mead while visiting Europe or at a medieval festival? Have you been told that mead was like beer, a beer with honey or even a wine with honey? Mead has some similarities to these beverages, but it is so much more it deserves its own category. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of honey as its primary sugar source and is often referred to as honey wine. Being made from honey, one would naturally expect it to be very sweet and although it usually is, it can actually range from dry to very sweet. Mead is usually still, though it can be made sparkling and can range from a mild low alcoholic content up to very high. Mead is arguably the oldest alcoholic beverage on the planet with some evidence dating it back approximately 10,000 years. Due to many different cultural and financial reasons, mead has fallen out of favor over the many years and now we call it the 'oldest alcoholic beverage no one has ever heard of.' A far cry from its hey day when it was referred to as the 'Nectar of the Gods.' Mead can be produced in many variations including a plain honey wine (traditional - honey only), flavored with fruit (melomel), spices (metheglin), vegetables, or any combination of ingredients limited only by the imagination of the wine maker and the resources he has at hand.

Well, don't worry...Palmer Vineyards has the remedy - The Bakithi Kumalo Band. A native of Soweto Township outside Johannesburg, South Africa, Bakithi Kumalo's musical career has been characterized by a series of serendipitous events, ranging from his debut gig as a precocious seven year old filling in for the bassist in his uncle's band, to his enlistment into Paul Simon's group during the recording sessions of the pop star's landmark "Graceland" album in 1985. Kumalo creates a singular electric fretless bass sound that teams with double stops that sound like human voices and the African grooves of his homeland, and has garnered him a stellar reputation as a sideman. In addition to touring with Simon on his current North American tour, he's also recorded and/or toured with the likes of Gloria Estefan, Chaka Khan, Harry Belafonte, Gerald Albright, Miriam Makeba, Josh Groban and Chris Botti.

GUILD HALL Moran and Spiga Galleries and Boots Lamb Education Center 158 Main Street, East Hampton 324-0806 Mon 9/1 – Sun 11/30 ARTlink ARTlink integrates the visual, literary and performing arts into the school curriculum through student tours and workshops, strengthening the relationships between Guild Hall, the students, their families and the community. This program is important for numerous reasons: Guild Hall is a unique educational resource; art has the power to expand imaginations and observation skills; through art, students can gain insight into today’s world as well as the history of other cultures; through Guild Hall exhibitions, students can explore our contemporary art community as well as its rich history; we can offer an opportunity for students to stretch their creativity with hands-on art, music or literary activities; and together we can make a connection between the visual and performing arts, classroom curriculum as per the New York State Learning Standards. Exhibition tours are designed in combination with teachers and administrators, or are based on an interactive discussion between students and artists/docents. Parents are invited to participate and discuss new concepts. Specific focus materials, age appropriate discussions and follow up projects are planned for each individual class. For example, with a recent exhibition, "Hamptons Gardens: A 350 Year Legacy," children learned about growth and planting, landscape design, local history, early photography, sculpture gardens, nature’s symmetry, Realism, and Impressionism. For younger children, our Andy Warhol exhibitions allowed them to explore color, common themes in Pop Art, local history, and poetry. This program is three-fold: an introduction to the works in the classroom, an on-site tour of the exhibition, and a follow-up workshop which would integrate the visual arts into course work.


Students were also treated to a workshop with poet Scott Chaskey, who workshopped poems and sketches with Montauk School children at the Warhol Preserve, and off-site component of Guild Hall's ARTlink program. ARTlink offers an opportunity for students to stretch their creativity beyond the classroom instruction with hands-on visual art, music, or literary activities. Using the visual and performing arts, we are making a connection between students in the classroom and their families and the broader community. Call 631 324-0806 for information. Sat 8/9 – Sun 10/19 Guild Hall Museum Exhibition: Larry Rivers-Early Major Works Admission $5/GH Members Free Larry Rivers was born Yitzak Loiza Grossberg in the Bronx, New York City on August 17, 1923. He was the son of Ukrainian immigrants, Samuel and Sonya Grossberg. He began playing the piano as a child, then switched to the saxophone; as a teenager his musical career began by playing in jazz bands. His name was changed when a nightclub comedian introduced his group as "Larry Rivers and his Mudcats." In 1944, after supporting himself for several years as a musician, and doing a stint in the U.S. Army Air Corps, he enrolled at the Julliard School to study composition. About the same time he met painter Jane Freilicher who introduced him to the world of visual art. Rivers continued to support himself as a musician, but began studying painting with Hans Hofmann in 1947. With funding from the GI Bill he enrolled in the Fine Arts program at New York University where he worked with William Baziotes. He earned a Bachelor's degree in art education in 1951, but didn't become a teacher as he had planned. Instead he developed a career that focused on painting but included music, stage design, acting, filmmaking and writing poetry and prose. He was a facile draftsman whose art work formed a connection between the Abstract Expressionism of the 1940s and 1950s and Pop Art in the 1960s. He was fascinated by great painting and among his most noted paintings were his personal renditions of some of the world's classics: Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware, Dutch Masters, I Like Olympia in Blackface from Manet. The subjects of his figurative paintings were family, history, politics and sex. His oil paintings included the use of stencils, cutouts, blank canvas and image reversals and he often painted family members.Rivers was married to Augusta Burger in late 1945; they had two boys, Joseph who was her son from a previous marriage, and Steven. In 1961 he married Clarice Price; they had two daughters, Gwynne and Emma. In the 1970s he had another son, Sam, with the painter Daria Deshuk. He died on August 14, 2002 of cancer in his home in Southampton, New York and was memorialized with a service here at Guild Hall that same month. Larry Rivers was an artist whom we had hoped to exhibit when he passed away 5 years ago. We will exhibit a few major works from key museums, Washington Crossing the Delaware from the MoMA , Double Portrait of Birdie from the Whitney, The Studio from the Minneapolis Art Institute, O’Hara Nude with Boots from the Larry Rivers Foundation and a few others.

Sun 9/21 – Sun 11/30 Modern Photographs—The Machine, the Body and the City Celections from the Charles Cowles Collection.This exhibition traces the evolution of photography in the 20th and 21st centuries, from early Pictorialist works that mimic the moodiness of late 19th-century painting, through the Modern formal experimentations of the Constructivist and Bauhaus schools, to the documentary ethos of mid-century America and the large-scale, staged tableaux of our own time. As indicated by its title, the exhibition also examines three prominent themes highlighted by the selection: depictions of the metropolis, modern machinery, and the human figure. A number of works highlight the relationship between photography and other art forms, including portraits of such prominent artists as Henri Matisse, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. Among the photographers represented in the exhibition are Berenice Abbott, Diane Arbus, Eugène Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander, Bill Jacobson, André Kertész, William Klein, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Duane Michals, Irving Penn, Robert Rauschenberg, Man Ray, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Sam Taylor-Wood, Andy Warhol, and Gary Winogrand.

Fri 9/26 Metropolis (1927) 7:00 pm $5 for Parrish Members / $7 for non-members. Directed by Fritz Lang. Starring Brigitte Helm, Fritz Rasp, Gustav Froelich. Silent. 124 minutes. Metropolis takes place in 2026, when the populace is divided between workers who must live in the dark underground and the rich who enjoy a futuristic city of splendor. The tense balance of these two societies is realized through images that are among the most famous of the twentieth century, many of which presage such sci-fi landmarks as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Blade Runner. Lavish and spectacular, with elaborate sets and modern science fiction style, Metropolis stands today as the crowning achievement of the German silent cinema.

SOUTHAMPTON CULTURAL CENTER Levitas Arts Center 25 Pond Lane, Southampton 287-4377 Fri 9/5 – Sun 9/14 Theater at the Southampton Cultural Center: "Merrily We Roll Along" $25


Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm, Sundays at 5:00 pm Center Stage launches their new season with Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, starring Brett Chizever, Stephen D’Amico and Susan Vinski and directed by Michael Disher. Merrily We Roll Along is a musical with a book by George Furth and lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim. It is based on the 1934 play of the same name by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. Furth and Sondheim retained the basic structure and overall theme of the play but updated it to encompass the years between 1957 and 1980. Its main protagonist is Franklin Shepard who, in 1980, is a one-time composer of Broadway musicals who has become a highly successful but cynical and jaded film producer who has lost his friends, longtime collaborator Charley Kringas and Mary Flynn, a writer. Like the play, the musical moves backwards in time showing how Frank has become the man he is today. Tickets: $25 general admission. Students under 21 with ID: $10.

BRIDGEHAMPTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY 2368 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton 537-1088 Sat 9/20 19th Century Baseball Doubleheader Vintage Uniforms and No Gloves! Sat 9/27 16th Annual Sports Car Road Rally &Vintage Car Tour. Rally Cars head off at 10 am and Tour Cars leave at 11 am As many autophyles know, the Bridgehampton area is steeped in racing history. Beginning in 1915, the Firemen sponsored street races as part of their summer carnival. Those races ran laps over a circular course that went east on Main Street, south on Halsey Lane, east on Paul's Lane, and back up Ocean Avenue to the monument. Homemade and modified cars piloted by local note-worthies like John Ambrose, Moosie Thompson, Court Rodgers and Norris Hopping put pressure on visiting racers as they reached speeds of up to 50mph. These early races continued through 1921. Racing revived in 1949 when Bruce Stevenson, inspired by the first Watkins Glen race in 1948, organized a similar event in Bridgehampton. Predominately European racing cars reached speeds in excess of 100mph on a 4.5 mile road course that ran clockwise up Ocean Avenue, across Sagaponac Road, down Sagg Main Street, and back along Bridge Lane. 1953 saw both the last Bridgehampton race and the end of open road racing in New York State. However, during those 5 years the likes of Briggs Cunningham, Tommy Cole, George Huntoon, Freddie Wacker, the Collier brothers, Bob Grossman, John Fitch, television personality Dave Garroway and many others raced at Bridgehampton in the greatest races of the era. In 1957 the soon to be world famous Bridge Race Track opened on 500 acres of open land just north of the village. For over 35 years races of international importance took place on its winding course. Community pressure from new residents who objected to the noise of the races eventually led to the track closing. The land, atop an important aquifer, became the subject of considerable controversy, when purchasers of the old racetrack submitted plans for 'Golf at the Bridge'. Ironically, many maintain that the racecourse was a much better environmental use of the land. In 1993 Jeffrey Vogel and the Bridgehampton Historical Society organized the first Vintage Sports Car Road Rally to commemorate and keep alive the hamlet's racing history. Although the high-speed thrills of the earlier races cannot be recreated, our rally follows the lead of the great street races of the world. Italy's Mille Miglia, the Tour de France, and Sicily's Targa Florio have all been reborn as timed rallies, featuring vintage cars. Our rally is a time and distance event. The course uses public roads complete with local traffic. Timing on each leg of the course is done to the 10th of each second. And often a few 10ths will decide the winner of a timing leg! Entrants must be skilled in driving, map reading and timekeeping to compete. The full rally regulations can be viewed in the Rules and Regulations section of this site. Although initially only cars which could have competed in the Bridgehampton road races, were eligible, this year the Rally field will include sports cars made before 12-31-1959. If you are interested in participating, please see our "Contact Us" tab.

STONY BROOK SOUTHAMPTON Fri 9/5 Lecture Series Critical Issues Facing the World’s Oceans SB Southampton - Duke Lecture Hall 7:30 pm Phone: 632-5046 “The Arctic Ocean: Canary in the Global Warming Coal Mine” Speaker: Dr. J. Kirk Cochran, Professor of Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, Ph.D, 1979, Yale University. Recent studies have documented that large changes are occurring in the Arctic Oceans as a consequence of global warming. As such, the Arctic serves as the“canary in the coal mine”as an early harbinger of the effects of global warming on the Earth’s oceans. Decreasing extent of sea ice, melting glaciers and ice caps ,changing circulation patterns and increased river flow are all evident. Professor Cochran has studied the Arctic for nearly 20 years, and over the past summer participated in the international Circumpolar Flaw Lead Study. In this lecture, he will describe the ongoing research that is trying to understand the patterns and consequences of environmental changes in the Arctic. The lecture will be followed by a reception.

Back Again. After working as a successful journalist and author in her 20s and early 30s, Emma Keller met and married her husband Bill Keller (with whom she has two children). After giving birth to their first daughter, Emma found herself a stay-at-home mom—a role she truly loved. But as time went by she realized that her identity as a journalist felt like something in the distant past—something she was constantly reminded of as her husband’s star rose in the field she once inhabited (he would eventually become executive editor of the New York Times). With each passing year, Keller’s confidence level dropped and it became harder and harder to imagine getting back in the game—especially with a seemingly endless barrage of news stories concerning the myriad of obstacles that stood between Keller and her return: she’d never make the same money as before; she’d need to take a demotion; and so on. Choosing instead to ignore the bad news, Keller sought out women who had managed to reclaim a career (even after up to 10 years spent at home) in order to hear about how and what they had done and to learn from their experience. It wasn’t long before she realized that her next job would be to tell their stories. $39.00 per person includes three course meal and author discussion. Tax, tip and drinks not included. Books available for purchase and signature by the authors. Reservations Suggested. Call to reserve 631-324-5440.

Have you ever tried mead? Maybe you tried mead while visiting Europe or at a medieval festival? Have you been told that mead was like beer, a beer with honey or even a wine with honey? Mead has some similarities to these beverages, but it is so much more it deserves its own category. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of honey as its primary sugar source and is often referred to as honey wine. Being made from honey, one would naturally expect it to be very sweet and although it usually is, it can actually range from dry to very sweet. Mead is usually still, though it can be made sparkling and can range from a mild low alcoholic content up to very high. Mead is arguably the oldest alcoholic beverage on the planet with some evidence dating it back approximately 10,000 years. Due to many different cultural and financial reasons, mead has fallen out of favor over the many years and now we call it the 'oldest alcoholic beverage no one has ever heard of.' A far cry from its hey day when it was referred to as the 'Nectar of the Gods.' Mead can be produced in many variations including a plain honey wine (traditional - honey only), flavored with fruit (melomel), spices (metheglin), vegetables, or any combination of ingredients limited only by the imagination of the wine maker and the resources he has at hand.
