Karin Waisman Exhibition
Now through May 31.
In this new exhibition at Guild Hall, Karin Waisman presents The Horizon Is Not a Straight Line, a site-specific, 250-inch long cast resin and ceramic wall relief that investigates the notion of the border, conceiving it not as a straight line but a complex contact point between two elements that push and pull while continuing to support one another. Reservations are recommended.

Cynthia Wells Exhibition
Now through July.
This solo exhibition in the upstairs space of the Cutchogue New Suffolk Free Library displays works that explore light as a metaphor, with subjects that dance in and out of darkness representing the confusion of life—when hidden meaning, interpretation and betrayals belie an appearance of balance. Paintings include oil on canvas as well as digital prints from Wells’s illustrated children’s book, Moonglow.
27550 Main Road, Cutchogue. 631-734-6360, cutchoguelibrary.org
