Some of the most successful artists in the world have called the East End home, including legends such as Pollock, Warhol, Lichtenstein and de Kooning. So many more living here today are carrying the mantle quite nicely, so I thought I’d share some of the things a few of our friends have been up to as of late.

* This past Sunday, Sagaponack-based artist Steve Miller was mentioned in the New York Times Fashion & Style Section. His work was also recently in the windows at Bloomingdale’s and he’s got a big show coming up in his hometown of Buffalo at Burchfield Penney. Here’s the Times link and his site info:


* Composer Bruce Wolosoff’s “The Loom,” music inspired by the watercolors of Sag Harbor’s Eric Fischl, recently premiered in Boston with the Eroica Trio. And Christopher Kai Olsen’s film version for “A Light in the Dark,” a collaborative work by Anne Reinking and Melissa Thodos–scored by Wolosoff, who lives in Shelter Island–just received an Emmy Award nomination in the Outstanding Achievement for Arts/Entertainment Programming/Program/Special/Series.

* Guild Hall in East Hampton recently acquired Margaret Garrett’s “Tuning Fields 300” painting, which is on exhibit through January 4. Garrett, who lives in Shelter Island, is married to Wolosoff. Kudos to this creative couple, who have much to celebrate.

* Lastly, Roisin Bateman’s paintings, pastels and prints opened on Saturday at Peter Marcelle Project in Southampton. The exhibit will be on view through Sunday, November 16. Bateman, a sweetheart of a gal and super talented artist, lives in Sag Harbor.
