Long Island’s North Fork is home to a great many artists and craftspeople. The number of Greenport art galleries attest to that. Even a quaint, little village like Greenport has a booming art community.
Greenport Village is a historic town between Southold and East Marion on Long Island’s North Fork. Its quiet summer cottages and seafood shacks along the waterfront contrast nicely with the fine restaurants and upscale shops.
It is likely this cultural dichotomy that attracts so many artisans to the area. Greenport is chock full of studios and galleries displaying a wide variety of bright and unique creations.
The historic nautical village of Greenport is famous for its fine art and craft galleries and enjoying the monthly Gallery Walk is a wonderful way to enjoy an evening. Whether your passion is painting, graphics, photography, sculpture, ceramics, book arts, drawings, custom murals, art furniture, or unique collectibles you will find it on the North Fork or Long Island. The Greenport galleries are as diverse as the village itself and work with a wide variety of established and emerging local artists.
The Gallery Walks are scheduled for the third Saturday of the month and remaining walks are scheduled for September 18, October 16, and November 20. The doors are open between 6-9 P.M. for an evening of gallery hopping. They offer a variety of gallery talks and refreshments and the variety of art is just exquisite. Participating galleries include DeCordova Studio & Gallery, Knotted Dreams, Clarke’s Garden; Gallery M, Claw Flowers, the South Street Gallery & Framers, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, Winter Harbor Gallery, Fiedler Gallery, Verbena, Greenport Art & Design, Terrence Joyce’s Dockside Gallery, John Jude Glass Gallery, Studio East Gallery, Noah’s Restaurant, and Sacred Sweets!
Even if you can’t make the dates for the remaining Gallery Walks, most of the galleries are open year around and you are always welcome to join us at the Arbor View Bed & Breakfast!
