Carly Haffner: In the Woods
February 14–17, Noon–5 p.m.

The 2019 Guild Hall Education Corridor Exhibition, Carly Haffner: In the Woods, is a selection of Haffner’s landscape paintings. Depicting the woods in her folk-art-inspired style with minimal lines and subtle color shifts, the viewer is guided through the landscape paying homage to another side of the Hamptons. Turning the focus away from the sprawling beaches and farm fields to the residential landscapes of the year-round community—homes in the woods, yards with old cars, fishing gear, a vintage airstream, etc. The show is on view through February 23.

Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton. 631-324-0806, guildhall.org
