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 pieces are reflections and interpretations of the environment and surroundings of the East End. (more…)
