LIFE'S GUIDE TO THE 2018 SEASON T INTERNATIONAL A RT he chance to buy authentic, hard- crafted and hand-made art from oth- er areas is a special treat the Hamp- tons has to offer this season. On July 20-22 Sag Harbor’s Christ Church will host their 6th annual HAITIAN ART FAIR. Featuring 45 native artists from that Caribbean coun- try you’ll see paintings, sculpture, textiles, and folk art of many kinds. Proceeds go to support the small village of Chermine, where medical care, local schools and basic infrastructure are in every day need of help. Meanwhile on July 13-21 East Hamp- ton’s Ashwagn Hall hosts their INDONE- SIAN ART AND CRAFTS SHOW. With almost every conceivable form of native art and craft you can literally furnish a home or create an entire wardrobe with the wealth of hand-made goods for sale on display here. G. E. returns July 27 for another sampling of intimate performances and talks with exceptional artists when he hosts red-hot artists Sophie E. Hawkins and Trevor Hall. Love the Avett Brothers? So does G. E., that’s why he’s asked Scott and Seth to town August 19 for another con- versation and concert. Tickets for these extremely pop- ular shows are $55-150 and may well sell-out by press time, so hurry!   THAT’S NOT ALL, FOLKS!! It is safe to say the Hamptons is home to more events in summer than there are literally days in the season. Large and small they blend into a tapestry of interesting things to do for almost any taste and style. It is impossible to lost them all so we’ll take what we consider to be the best pick out what we consider to be a representative sampling of art, charity, sports and just plain old-fash- ioned fun things to do for your visiting pleasure. Know you can always turn to the various local Cham- bers of Commerce who all post dozens of additional activities for your consideration. Bottom line, enjoy this summer of 2018, it will be over sooner than we know! ■ coastaltextiles JULY 13TH - 21ST 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM coastal projections Ashawagh Hall - 780 Fireplace Road - East Hampton G.E.
