• “Swells & Swirls,” works by Long Island-based photographers Matt Clark and Mike DiRenzo, will open with a reception Saturday, June 14, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Alex Ferrone Photography Gallery in Cutchogue. 

The show features Mr. Clark’s photographs of “turbulent surf” from New York and international waters and Mr. DiRenzo’s shots of carved sand dunes and stone formations from Western United States. “Aerial Observations” by Ms. Ferrone — “abstracted, sweeping formations of area waters” — will also be shown.

The exhibit can be seen through July 20. Messrs. Clark and DiRenzo will give a gallery talk at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 13.

• Documentarian Amei Wallach of Mattituck will present her film “Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Enter Here” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 13, in the Peconic Landing auditorium in Greenport. Afterward, Ms. Wallach will lead a question-and-answer session. The program is co-sponsored by Southold Historical Society.

The film’s subjects are North Fork artists who returned to Moscow in 2008, two decades after Mr. Kabakov fled the Soviet Union, to mount six walk-through installations throughout the city.


• Fine art by Janet Paposikos and Mary Laspia will be shown through June 16 at Gallery Crossing in Peconic.

• Artist Cynthia Wells of Southold will give a gallery talk at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 14, at Rothman’s Gallery in Southold. Ms. Wells’ oil paintings, silverpoint drawings and fine art prints are on view through July 6.
