The “Summer Finale” exhibit at the Water Mill Museum acted as a call for their best work, and a third of the group pulled from both this past winter’s challenge and their archive to deliver — showing paintings, prints and drawings for the fourth year in a row.
The upcoming performance of “Don Giovanni in New York” at Bay Street Theater will re-enact the events leading up to New York’s first Italian opera, while mirroring Da Ponte’s passion to spread opera in the New World.
An opening reception will run from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, September 21, and the show will conclude on Wednesday, October 31, marking the end of the museum’s 2018 season.
