ART SHOW EXTRAVAGANZA
Walking among the works of a gifted artist is a exhilerating experience. It’s even more spectacular when there are 140 of those artists, which makes the 39th Annual Greater Westhampton Chamber of Commerce Mary O. Fritchie Outdoor Juried Fine Art Show a can’t-miss this weekend. The longest-running premiere summer art show in the Hamptons showcases the talents of fine artists both local and from abroad, sure to inspire and engage serious art enthusiasts and casual visitors alike.

OUTDOOR MOVIE NIGHT
Grab your blanket, lawn chair and a picnic (or at least some popcorn!) and head to the outdoor film series Films on the Haywall at Marders. This week’s movie is Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 gem North by Northwest, the classic thriller starring Cary Grant as a New York City ad executive pursued across the country after being mistaken for a government agent. As edge-of-your-seat exciting as any summer blockbuster!
