“ColorPop” Pops Up

Folioeast will open “ColorPop,” an exhibition of work by Peter Dayton, Janet Jennings, and William Pagano, at Malia Mills on Main Street in East Hampton with a reception Saturday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Organized by Coco Myers and Kay Gibson, the show will continue through Feb. 4.

Mr. Dayton will present works from his “Rockets” series, brightly colored hard-edged forms that appear poised to take flight. Ms. Jennings’s recent oils and watercolors in “ColorPop” feature geometric blocks and bands of color. Color and geometry also figure prominently in Mr. Pagano’s works, which are executed in oil and in dye sublimation on aluminum.

Drawing Botanicals

The Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons will hold a workshop devoted to drawing botanicals on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the John LoGerfo library at the Bridgehampton Community House. 

Led by Andrea Cote, a multidisciplinary artist and art educator, the class will focus on the basic skills and techniques for drawing from life and will encourage personal expression. No prior art experience is necessary, and participants have been encouraged to make use of a favorite plant, flower, or clipping. 

The cost is $25, $20 for members, and $15 for premium members.
