From January 15 through February 27, The Drawing Room in East Hampton is presenting “Snow Day, “ a group exhibition organized in association with Eric Brown Art Group. Works on view range from “Wilson A.,” Bentley’s rare photomicrographs of snow crystals, to 20th and 21st century snowscapes by Jennifer Bartlett, Charles Burchfield, Jack Bush, Lois Dodd, Jane Freilicher, Hector Leonardi, Aubrey Levinthal, Kathryn Lynch and Fairfield Porter.

On January 15, 1885, the amateur meteorologist Wilson A. Bentley discovered a technique to capture the unique crystalline structure of individual snowflakes. Mesmerized by snowfall since childhood, he later reflected on this groundbreaking moment —“It was the best day of my life.”

Nearly 150 years later, the physical presence and fleeting effects of snowfall continue to inspire contemplation. This exhibition juxtaposes photographs, paintings and works on paper by 10 artists who harnessed the evanescence and calm induced by a landscape blanketed in white.

The Drawing Room is at 55 Main Street, 2nd floor, East Hampton. Winter hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and by appointment. Visit drawingroom-gallery.com or call 631-324-5016 for details.
