• The work of Jamesport photographer Steve Berger will be on display during November at Mattituck-Laurel Library. Mr. Berger has been taking photos on the East End since 1996. An artist’s reception is planned for 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6.

• A reception for artist Mike Stanko of Valley Stream and an accompanying concert will be hosted by Rothman’s Gallery in Southold from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29.

Mr. Stanko’s work, described in a press release as “a world of art which blends life’s traditional scenes and imagined surroundings within a whirlwind of pop culture and color,” will be shown along with local scenes by Ron Rothman and Stacey Brandfon. The exhibit will be on view through Dec. 31.

The concert will feature Caroline Doctorow and the Streamrollers, Job Potter & Friends, and The Park Ave. Gypsies with Southold Slim.
