A new multi-location artist exhibition is encouraging people to depart from their usual route to get a new perspective on the art being created on the East End.

Aptly entitled “Detour,” the exhibit showcases the paintings, sculptures and photographs of 13 East End artists at three locations in Riverhead and Southold. The show, presented by East End Arts in Riverhead, gives insight into the divergent forms, techniques and routes each artist takes to arrive at their finished work. The pieces are reflections and interpretations of the environment and surroundings of the East End. (more…)

Somewhere on the North Fork this weekend, a family will pull up to a beach on its return to the North Fork.

Along the way, they’ll pass rows of budding vines, a line developing outside Magic Fountain, and the smoke and reverberating laughter from a backyard country barbecue. On the way back home, perhaps they’ll stop at a farm stand for a bundle of fresh asparagus and some strawberries.

But for now, their sights are set on that one specific destination: the water. (more…)

Vintage furniture and home goods shop Pearl Cottage is returning to Southold for an extended stay. Specializing in a mix of old and new with decidedly “creamy and dreamy” aesthetic with modern Scandinavian influences, the new Main Road shop is currently undergoing renovations ahead of a planned Memorial Day opening.

If the name rings a bell, it might be because Pearl Cottage first made its North Fork debut in the fall of 2016, in the form of a pop-up shop at the former Reichert Family Center on the Main Road in Southold. Though it only lasted a couple months, owners and sisters Laura Hansen and Susan Hansen Fasano had a feeling they’d be bringing the business back.

“We immediately fell in love with the area,” Susan said. “It is a warm, friendly community. We knew we wanted to come back.” (more…)

A little rain didn’t dampen the fourth annual Dandelion Festival at KK’s The Farm in Southold.

The Sunday afternoon celebration of the bright yellow flower featured educational talks, a flower crown-making station as well as dandelion salads, coffee and teas.
