East End Arts in Riverhead is partnering with the New York Shed Company, creating the first ever Art Village in downtown Riverhead, which will be up this summer through early October. The pop-up galleries will comprise three designer sheds in which artists can display their work.
Located in the heart of downtown, East End Arts has grounds that extend from Main Street back to the Peconic Riverfront. In addition to selling works, artists will have the opportunity to create new connections in the business community.
“East End Arts is always looking for the win-win. The Art Village supports artists with new sale opportunities and at the same time encourages downtown foot traffic and visitation to Main Street,” said Pat Snyder, executive director, East End Arts.
East End Arts is a not-for-profit organization established in 1972 that serves the five East End towns. For more information, visit www.eastendarts.org.
