TUESDAY, JULY 8
Opening: Keith Mayerson and Peter Saul at Robert Blumenthal
What! Keith Mayerson, whose handsome, moving “My American Dream” paintings were one of the great highlights of this year’s Whitney Biennial, will show alongside living legend Peter Saul, whose cartoon-flavored canvases have crackled and exploded with terrifying, hilarious energy for half a century. Two kings! Should be a rollicking affair. —Andrew Russeth
Robert Blumenthal, 1045 Madison Avenue, 3A, New York, 6–8 p.m.
Opening: Gino de Dominicis and “Hypothesis for an Exhibition” at Dominique Lévy
Double trouble. The gallery’s associate director, Begum Yasar, has organized a group show, a tribute to the Italian artist Giulio Paolini, with a tony roster of young and mid-career players, including Kerstin Brätsch, KAYA, R.H. Guaytman and GuytonWalker. It’s accompanied by a new artists’ book. Also on deck: a show of the late Italian Gino de Dominicis, whose enigmatic, wily and sometimes uncomfortable work has been little seen in New York since a 2008 survey at PS1. —A.R.
Dominique Lévy, 909 Madison Avenue, New York, 6–9 p.m.
Opening: “Kate Ericson & Mel Zeigler” at Perrotin
It’s the duo’s first hometown solo show in 20 years, and the first since Kate Ericson’s death in 1995. — Nate Freeman

THURSDAY, JULY 10
Closing: “Walter Robinson: Figure Studies” at Lynch Tham

Opening: ArtHamptons / Art Market Hamptons
If you’re craving art fairs amidst the doldrums of summer, pick your poison on the East End: ArtHamptons will feature a benefit gala, a polo match, and the 22nd Annual Tea Dance, while Art Market Hamptons will have food trucks slinging Roberta’s pizzas and a pop-up version of Norwood, the member’s-only Chelsea lounge. —N.F.

SATURDAY, JULY 12
Opening: “Another, Once Again, Many Times More” at Martos Gallery’s Summer Location
The irrepressible Jose Martos appears to be even more out of control than normal. Continuing his tradition of staging a blowout summer show each year at his home on the end of Long Island, he has this year tapped no less than six people to handle curatorial duties. Walead Beshty and Kelley Walker; Carol Bove; Bob Nickas and Virginia Overton; and Ryan Foerster. Sounds wild. —A.R.
Martos Gallery in the North Fork, 12395 Main Road, East Marion, N.Y., 2–6 p.m.
Event: Parrish Art Museum Midsummer Party
Looking to spend six hours downing highballs with the Hamptons art and fashion cognoscenti in a giant

SUNDAY, JULY 13
Opening: “David Diao: Front to Back” at the Aldrich
Painter David Diao will present a solo outing of work that stretches more than 40 years, from his luminous early abstractions (which bear an uncanny resemblance to the abstractions that Gerhard Richter started shortly after him) to his later, incisive looks at his personal history and the machinations of the art world. It’s part of the museum’s 50th-anniversary exhibition series. (The museum’s founder, Larry Aldrich, snapped up one of Mr. Diao’s works back in 1969.) The artist and the show’s curator, Richard Klein, will have a panel discussion at 2 p.m., which you can RSVP for on the museum’s website.—A.R.
Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, 258 Main Street, Ridgefield, Conn., 3–5 p.m.
