I can’t be everywhere all the time, but thanks to wonderful people like Kimberly Goff it’s almost like I was. And you were too!

Please enjoy these photos from this past Saturday’s Artist Invitational at the Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton. The show, which remains on view through September 5,  just happened to be curated by our Miss Goff. Well done!

How can you not love what the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons does? I’m such a fan of this organization, and all those who work tirelessly on behalf of those who depend on our care. Hope you enjoy these great photos from ARF’s annual Bow Wow Meow Ball. And feel free to pay a visit and donate time, funds and/or materials. You’ll be glad you did.

I’ve got two great galleries on this one. The first is by Lisa Tamburini and the second is by Kimberly Goff. Twice the photos, twice the fun!

 

Here are some details about the event: On Saturday, August 20,the Animal Rescue Fund of The Hamptons held the Bow Wow Meow Ball at its 22-acre campus in Wainscott. The eventing’s festivities included a celebration to honor filmmaker Katharina Otto-Bernstein (Director, Absolute Wilson; Producer, HBO’s Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures) for her unwavering commitment to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons and animal welfare. A longtime supporter of ARF, as well as an adopter, Katharina’s greatest gift has been the gift of food to the ARF animals through an annual donation to underwrite the cost of food for the cats and dogs at the ARF Adoption Center while they await their forever homes.

Theater director and visual artist Robert Wilson presented the ARF Champion of Animals Award to Katharina Otto-Bernstein. Dinner was catered by Glorious Food within an elegant setting created by David Monn and Alex Papachristidis. Afterwards, the party continued with dancing to music by the Peter Duchin Orchestra. More than 400 high-profile guests attended and raised funds for ARF.

More than 1,000 people showed up to check out The Watermill Center on Sunday, August 14, for its annual Discover Day.

On view at the avant-garde laboratory: more than two dozen installations and performances created for FADA: House of Madness, the 23rd Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit & Auction, along with new work created by Watermill’s summer residency artists, and sculptures and artifacts from The Watermill Center Collection.

An annual event, Discover Watermill Day, provides a unique opportunity for visitors to see original works created by over 130 artists from more than 27 countries currently participating in The Watermill Center’s International Summer Program, a five to six week residency where participants explore and collaborate on new ideas and endeavors under the guidance of The Center’s Artistic Director, Robert Wilson.

This year, upon entering through the bamboo-lined entrance, guests encountered Jacques Reynaud’s Angels of Apocalypse, accompanied by sound installations adapted from recent recordings by Oscar nominee singer/songwriter, ANOHNI (formerly Antony Hegarty). Following Tony Piazza’s flower terraces, highlights from the day included: an exhibition of Clementine Hunter’s paintings, Marianna Kavallieratos’ four-part performance Far West, bird houses by Wilson’s long-time collaborator Christopher Knowles, a young man submerged in John Margaritis’ One Ton Tank, and The Bruce High Quality Foundation’s Manneken Pis, which offered a welcomed spritz of water from the rooftop. Guests of all ages enjoyed cotton candy from The Candy Man, face painting and temporary tattoos with Manu Halligan, hatmaking with Genevieve Neve, drawing workshops with Tea Taneski and pillow fights on the lawn with pillows from Brian O’Mahoney’s cats sleep anywhere 2. At 5:00pm, attendees gathered under the tent for an open rehearsal of Robert Wilson’s Two Oars and Turnadot, followed by a performance by gospel jazz singer Marcelle Davies-Lashley.

A wonderfully full house

I’ve got some serious catching up to do, having been away in the wilds of Wisconsin, with intermittent internet even a few days of total power outage. But boy was it ever fun when I wasn’t driving through the hinterlands in search of WiFi!

Please pardon my lateness in posting these fabulous photos by Kimberly Goff of the South Fork Natural History Museum’s Summer Gala on Saturday, July 16. Enjoy!
