Carpe Artem Exhibition
Now through November 29.
In the White Room Gallery’s latest exhibition, all the art is abstract because abstraction is freedom. No judgement. No expectations. You see what you see. You like what you like. You, as the observer with your memories, perception, tastes and intellect, create the narrative. 2415 Main Street, Bridgehampton. 631-237-1481, thewhiteroom.gallery
Cloud Garden Exhibition
Now through November 30.
Cloud Garden is a site-specific outdoor installation and community project by artist Monica Banks. Installed in the trees of Guild Hall’s Furman Garden, tangles of wire, balled-up deer fencing, feathers, pop tops from seltzer cans, unidentifiable pieces of hardware and other artifacts from the artist’s everyday life hang as mobiles, creating dangling objects that shimmer in the air like the stories we tell about ourselves. 158 Main Street, East Hampton. 631-324-0806, guildhall.org
