The Honduras-born, NYC-based artist showed the first volume of her “Time and Space” series at a private opening in Soho, next to MarieBelle New York.

Fried Chicken  The owners of Southampton Social Club, Union Burger Bar, and Union Sushi & Steak are bringing a new concept to Southampton that has never been done before on the East End. Restaurateurs Ian Duke and David Hilty are opening Southampton’s first ghost kitchen called The Coop.

The ghost kitchen concept will enable customers to order delivery as well as offer Curbside Pick-Up for guests who order through the website or over the phone. There, in fact, will be daily specials for those who order directly through the restaurant’s website for Curbside Pick-Up.

Candyland Acrylic On Canvas By Alysha Marko Upper East Side’s UEast75 Gallery presents “Musing and Mastering: The Ordinary,” an upcoming pop-up exhibition at Union Sushi & Steak in Southampton, NY. Featuring work from six world-renowned Latin and American artists – curator Alysha Marko, along with Juan Lazaro, Renelio Marin, Rodrigo Pedrosa, Lane Rudder and Carlos Vega – this art exhibit will be unlike any other you have witnessed in the East End.    “As this year descends ever so bittersweetly, we can all agree it has been one that has been far from The Ordinary. We have all been forced to some degree to experience what we have right in front of us much clearer. Artists have done it for centuries -- being stuck inside their mental and physical spaces, giving birth to works, beckoning the word ordinary to [come to light]. These moments are expanded here [in this moment]. We thank these artists for each of their unique imaginations within this subject,” Alysha Marko, owner of UEas
