After a quiet season, the Montauk Village Green will once again come to life with paintings and people this weekend, at the 10th Annual Montauk Memorial Day Weekend Show on the Green.
The Montauk Artists Association hosts the annual outdoor gallery event, at which guests can explore original, handmade artwork from artists hailing from across Long Island, New York City, and other U.S. locales.
Ron Mellott, Treasurer of the Montauk Artists’ Association Inc. said he has seen the show evolve. “It has emerged as one of the finest art shows on Long Island. It attracts incredibly talented artists, many returning each year with new art. Though each year the event always includes new artisans from around the nation, showing uniquely different bodies of work, wonderfully creative artistic visions, and spectacular talents. It is an ever-changing though always beautiful tapestry of artwork,” said Mellott.
With the continued support from the East End arts community as well as an influx of holiday weekend visitors, Mellott expects a great turnout for the event, which will help kickoff the busy season.
“We are grateful each year to meet people exploring art and experiencing that unique connection between themselves and what artists create. It is our hope that for decades to come, this Memorial Day Weekend Show on the Green will continue to flourish for artisans, new visitors, and the upcoming generations to come explore and discover art,” Mellott added.
The Memorial Day Weekend Show on the Green will be held Friday, May 25, through Sunday, May 27. The free event will be held on the Village Green in downtown Montauk with hours of Friday noon to 6 PM, and Saturday and Sunday 10 AM to 6 PM.
