Cocktails at Hook Pond
East Hampton Historical Society

Cocktails at Hook Pond

Saturday, June 17, 6 - 8 p.m.

Cocktails at Hook Pond will be a memorable start to your season in East Hampton. Dorian and Gary Fuhrman will welcome East Hampton Historical Society members and supporters into their home overlooking Hook Pond. The home was one of architect Francis Fleetwood's final commissions. 

Fleetwood’s design legacy is manifest in the revival of the Shingle Style in East Hampton, celebrating the heritage of the original summer colony cottages with a twist of modern splendor. Built in 2014 and perched on the northwest bank of Hook Pond, this house offers a glimmering view of fresh water on the rim of the South Shore. Fleetwood’s much-admired houses incorporate sweeping rooflines and towering red-brick chimneys. Expansive porches, as we find were, not only unite interior and exterior spaces, but make the most of the house’s enviable placement close to the ocean, close enough to hear the waves. This vantage point offers one of the best views of the end-of-season fireworks.

Tickets cost $150; reservatons are required and space is limited.

Join EHHS staff on a walking tour from Clinton Academy to the Moran Studio, the home and art studio of Thomas Moran and Mary Nimmo Moran. Thomas Moran is often credited as one of the fathers of the National Parks Service - his groundbreaking paintings of natural areas in the American West, including Yellowstone, were instrumental in the creation of the National Parks Service. Mary Nimmo Moran was the only woman fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, a talented artist in her own right, and an avid gardener. Their studio is cited as the first artist studio in East Hampton and fundamental in the establishment of the East End of Long Island as an important artists colony. It was purpose built as a studio first and a home second. The restoration process of the building is now in its final phase of construction and the Garden Club of East Hampton has re-created a selection of Mary's gardens. Our staff will share this long and exciting journey with you. Be inspired to help us get to the finish line!

Boat Hulls: Photography series by Michele Dragonetti
East Hampton Town Marine Museum

Boat Hulls: Photography series by Michele Dragonetti

July-September

Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Sunday, noon - 5 p.m. 

Michele Dragonetti is from New York City and currently lives and works in both Amagansett, New York and Manhattan. Her Boat Hulls series began in the marinas of Montauk where she was drawn to boats in need of repair and refurbishing.  She finds particular appeal in the contrast between the abstract patterns of the painted lines and colors of the hulls, and the overlying evidence of their weather and age, which together create a unique interplay of textures. By focusing her compositions on the triangular patterns of the hulls in a square format, she is able to highlight the essential geometry of the images.  Photos in the ongoing series transform often humble vessels into abstract portraits, celebrating their imperfect appeal. 

Groups by appointment in advance.
Admission: $4 adults / $3 those over 65 / $2 students
