If you’re heading out to the Hamptons this month, be sure to check out Adrian Nivola’s first ever solo sculpture show at The Drawing Room. These delicate creations made from a mixture of mediums, including wire, string, and found materials, were inspired by 19th century dreams of aviation. We’re particularly drawn to the small scale and wild imagination of these pieces, a fantastical, high design version of model airplanes and other toy miniatures.

The Drawing Room is located at 66H Newtown Lane in East Hampton. Hours are Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10:00am-5:00pm; Sundays 11:00am-5:00pm; closed Wednesdays. Adrian Nivola: Sculpture will run through August 31, 2014.
