On Friday, June 25, The Church opens “Road Rage,” with a reception from 4 to 7 p.m. The new exhibition features the piñata-inspired art of Justin Favela. An artist known for honoring his Mexican/Guatemalan heritage, he has made one of his lowrider sculptures for the show.

“Anyone who has been in a car, wanted a car, hated a car or lives for cars is going to be blown away by the wealth of work in this show,” said artist Eric Fischl, a founder of The Church.

“Road Rage” remains on view through September 20. Hours are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 5 p.m., Friday noon to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Church is at 48 Madison Street, Sag Harbor. Visit sagharborchurch.org for details.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Sag Harbor Cinema presents an ongoing series highlighting the powerful relationship between culture and cars. This special programming will be inaugurated by a run of the ‘70s cult film, “Two-Lane Blacktop,” starting Friday, July 2. A boldly minimalistic, existential classic shot in gorgeous widescreen compositions, casting a sophisticated look at American male obsession, Monte Hellman’s greatest film is a tribute to a celebrated U.S. highway, Route 66. Sag Harbor Cinema honors the memory of the Hellman, who died this past April, with a special 50th Anniversary run of this critically acclaimed film. “Two-Lane Blacktop” was originally released on July 7, 1971.

Sag Harbor Cinema is located at 90 Main Street. For  tickets go to sagharborcinema.org.
