An Introduction to Fishing with Captain Peter Haskell
Thursday, July 30 at 6 p.m.
Although many beaches and fishing grounds can be close in proximity on the East End, the techniques and equipment used can be drastically different. Targeted fish can also change their behaviors as the seasons change. Captain Haskell will give an introduction to fishing here in our local waters! Join us as we discuss finding a new fishing spot, what gear to use, how to read the water, what to do when a new spot isn't producing, what opportunities our bays and oceans have to offer and much more.
Children are welcome. Be sure to bring your questions!
Concert: Jonathan Howe on Piano

Artist Reception - Claudia Baez - "The Guermantes Way: Flowers"
Saturday, August 1, 5-6:30 p.m.
Claudia Baez was born in Mexico City and from the age of 9 studied painting with Robin Bond. Bond's teachings of spontaneity, his trust in individual flights of inspiration, and his faith in the intrinsic value of expression are, to this day, the most inspirational the artist has known. Baez was influenced by the German Expressionists and her focus is on deformation, the power of subject and the life of colors. The artist has internalized Kandinsky's metaphor: "Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammer, the soul is the piano with the strings."
After studying film at the Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica, she came to New York City, finished her studies at Columbia University and worked with Ang Lee, Martin Scorsese, Robert Benton and Michael Hausman on different film projects. Her passion for portrait painting began in 2002 and yielded 150 portraits in five years. In her most recent series, "Paintings after Proust" (2013-2014), Baez engages in a conversation in paint with the work of some of the greatest artists from the past six centuries. The artist was inspired by her longtime admiration of Proust and his monumental work, "In Search of Lost Time," in which he mentions more than 100 artists and references a great many of their works.
Claudia Baez has followed her Proust series with a group of tightly cropped, richly textured, atmospheric paintings of flowers. She paints without painstaking detail, always in search of gesture for its own sake. As in "In Search of Lost Time," the artist hopes these flowers will evoke lost memories in her viewers. Baez has had many solo and group exhibitions of her work both in Mexico City and New York and is represented in several private collections.
The artist is represented by ART 3 Gallery in Brooklyn. Art Gallery Committee members Lulie Morrisey and Cristina Kepner are chairs of this show which will be on exhibit from August 1 to 30.
