Here’s your word of the day: Optasia, which means “vision” or “apparition” in Greek. It’s also the name of photographer Barbara Vaughn’s new month-long exhibit at Quogue Gallery in Southampton, and a pretty apt moniker considering her visual trademark: Vaughn is known for capturing reflections in undulating bodies of water, which turn something as simple as boats or buildings into abstracted works of art à la Joan Miró or Gerhard Richter. And her subjects are diverse, from architecture along the Venetian island of Burano to — just in time for Independence Day — patriotic Stars and Stripes.
