OCEAN en PÉRIL at Art Space 98
For just a few more days, Art Space 98 in East Hampton is showcasing the oceanic photos and videos of French artist Camille Perrottet. Perrottet’s work covers a wide range of styles and mediums, though all of her work focuses on delivering a commentary on the current state of the world, and it always leaves a provocative message for her audience. In recent years, her work has focused on environmental issues, which is the focus of this exhibition.

OCEAN en PÉRIL is on display until July 18. Art Space 98 is open Friday–Monday, 12–6 p.m., and is located at 98 Newtown Lane in East Hampton. For more information, visit artspace.98.com.

Off the Wall/On the Wall at The White Room Gallery
Open until July 17 at the White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton is Off the Wall/ On the Wall, a new collaborative exhibition with C Fine Arts’ Cheryl Sokolow, bringing together several acclaimed international artists such as Kevin Barrett, John Van Alstine, Isobel Volb Sokolow, Norman Mooney and Rogan Brown. Divided among the two categories found in the title of the show, on and off the wall, each artist has constructed a sculpture or a wall relief that reflect their unique style. The end result is a diverse collection of abstract and fascinating pieces.

Lisa Breslow: Recent Works at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts (photo also at top of page)
Opening July 14, Kathryn Markel Fine Arts gallery in Bridgehampton will be showcasing the recent paintings of Lisa Breslow. Focusing on urban landscapes, Breslow constructs her cityscapes with an impressionistic touch—the buildings reduced to weightless and cloudy figures towering in the distance. People who are familiar with New York City will marvel at how she filters the normally crowded scenes into a blur of color, the streets and sidewalks empty with little to no trace of life. Her new oil paintings on display show Breslow’s recent experimentation with color and composition, her brush strokes more loose and abstract. Despite all of this, her cityscapes maintain the lofty, lonely beauty for which they are known.

Lisa Breslow: Recent Works is on view until July 31. Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, located at 2418 Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton, is open Thursday–Monday, 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Visit markelfinearts.com for more info.

MirrorMirror at Eric Firestone Gallery
This group exhibition features works by artists concerned with reflective surfaces, the quality of a mirrored object’s reflection, and doubled images. Instead of offering a definitive position, the work in MirrorMirror deflects absolutes and proposes a narrative that begins to describe the interstices between art and the viewer—that magic space that has dominated art and art theory of this century and the last. Artists include: Slater Bradley, Sara Braman, Sebastian Errazuriz, Rogan Gregory, Sven Lukin, Ryan Metke, Josh Reames, Miriam Schapiro, Adam Parker Smith, Mimi Smith, Mia Fonssagrives-Solow, Jen Stark, Letha Wilson, and Rob Wynne.

The exhibition opens Friday, July 15 and runs through Thursday, August 4. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, July 15 from 6–9 p.m. Eric Firestone Gallery is located at 4 Newtown Lane in East Hampton. Visit ericfirestonegallery.com for more info.
