Long Island:
Patchogue Art Council works so hard to bring you, the community, the very best of everything! Please save the date for their annual fundraiser and help promote a wonderful group of people who collaborate, connect, and keep art relevant for families and artists everywhere. Save your space now at their Raku Party at the end of October!

Nova Constellatio Gallery is worth checking out.

The Land of Moses exhibit might be coming to an end this month, but be on the lookout for the next best collection at the Long Island Museum.

Only one way to check out what’s incoming at Chase Edwards Contemporary and that’s by visiting their gallery.

I’m always a huge fan of photography galleries since that’s my passion and trade. Thanks to the Alex Ferrone Gallery for materializing so many fine artists’ dreams.
