• “Fair Winds and Tides,” paintings by East End artist Max Moran, will be presented from Aug. 16 to Sept. 14 at Jedediah Hawkins Inn’s barn gallery in Jamesport. An opening reception is set for 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16. 

This is the gallery’s sixth annual exhibit of oil paintings by Mr. Moran. This year’s show will feature new East End sea- and landscapes and paintings from his Manhattan “Rain” series; it “explores these very different places through changing weather,” according to a press release. “Seen together, they harmonize in an unexpected way and stimulate a dialogue about what it means to be at home in two very different environments.”

• Mixed media and acrylic abstracts by Deborah Belica and plein air landscapes by Susanne D’Alessio will be shown Aug. 14 to 25 at Gallery Crossing in Peconic.

A press release says, “The bold colors and distinctive textures of Deborah Belica’s [works] leave the viewer with a sense of wonder and curiosity at their mystery and delight.” Ms. D’Alessio, a member of Plein Air Peconic, “draws her inspiration from the coastal light of the natural vistas and farmlands on the eastern end of Long Island.”

Call for artists: North Fork Community Theatre in Mattituck invites submissions of two-dimensional work depicting the historic Mattituck building for a juried art show. The submission deadline is Oct. 1. Artists may enter up to three works measuring no more than 24 inches square.

Architectural renderings will also be eligible for an award and will be considered for use as a logo.

Work may be emailed in jpg form to artshow@nfct.com with an entry form, résumé and artist’s bio. Original work only.

Up to 25 pieces will be chosen to be displayed at the theater from December through April 2015.
