Maybe novelist Thomas Wolfe had it wrong. For Elliott Murphy, world-renowned singer-songwriter and Garden City, LI, native, it seems you can go home again. Murphy, who moved to Paris in 1989 to satisfy the demands of his growing European fan base, still returns for occasional visits to see his family and friends, and for a handful of performances in the Northeastern U.S. But on July 26, at 9:15 pm, he will return to Long Island for a special event: the American premiere of The Second Act of Elliott Murphy, a 90-minute full-length feature film about his resurgent career, to be screened…

A selection of little-known paintings from Eastern Europe will be presented at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton, New York, from August 3 through October 28. “Abstract Expressionism Behind the Iron Curtain” is a highly unusual exhibition that addresses a contrarian aspect of artistic expression in Eastern Europe during the Cold War period, when official art in Soviet bloc countries was strictly regulated and was required to adhere to Communist Party doctrine. In spite of such restrictions, however, there were artists who were aware of developments in contemporary abstract art — either through personal travel and contact with…

It was a perfect June morning on the East End of Long Island. Breeze flowing off the water, clouds providing a slight scrim for the sun trying to push through. Sitting at a remote picnic table (although not quite remote enough to keep away several “Hi Bobby, I love your new show” fans) with television star and celebrity chef Bobby Flay, I shared our plans and set-up for the opening night keynote address he would be delivering for the 3rd Annual Food Lab Conference. It would be delivered that evening on the water’s edge at the School of Marine and Atmospheric…

APS Type 1 (Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome Type 1) also known as Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathy Syndrome Type 1, is a rare, inherited disease characterized by immune-cell dysfunction with multiple autoimmunities. Caused by a mutated gene, this disorder presents in childhood, is chronic and has the potential to be life threatening. Because the disorder is rare, occurring in as few as one out of every two to three million people in the U.S., and has symptoms that are common with other disorders, diagnosing the disease can be difficult. To help support the APS Type 1 community, share cutting-edge research and raise awareness, the…

Created by dancer Emily Beattie and media artist Eric Gunther, ROLLING POINT is a dynamic video that invites visitors to move and interact with the motions of a dancer projected onto the walls of the Zuccaire Gallery in Staller Center. Multiple large projections create an immersive environment exploring the resonance between our bodies and the bodies we watch on screen.
