Members of The Art Guild (TAG) and the Greater Port Jefferson Northern Brookhaven Arts Council (GPJNBAC) will swap gallery space for the first Long Island Port-to-Port Art Exchange Exhibit, from Tuesday, Oct. 6 to Sunday, Oct. 18. This unique joint exhibit not only opens opportunities for art lovers to see work from different communities, it allows artists from Nassau and Suffolk to connect with each other.
TAG members will exhibit their varied styles—from abstract and modern to the more traditional, from watercolor, oils, acrylic and pastel, to mixed media, photography and prints at The Port Jefferson Community Center, 101A Broadway, Port Jefferson. The work of members of the Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council (GPJNBAC) will be on exhibit at Elderfields.
This event is a signature event for Long Island Arts Alliance’s Arts Month in October, and is sponsored by Nassau County Department of Parks, Dick Blick Art Materials and Fern & Hersh Cohen.
