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…)

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…)
