June 1 – August 25, 2019
DETOUR is an exhibition showcasing the work of 13 of the many talented artists working on the East End of Long Island and the divergent forms, techniques, and routes they take to arrive at their unique work. It will be presented by the East End Arts Council from June 1 through August 25, 2019. Taking place in three locations, the exhibition is unprecedented in its scope on the North Fork of Long Island. DETOUR will feature painting, sculpture, and photographs at the East End Arts Galleries and at Glen Hansen Studio. Each of the artists will be shown at all three locations. The exhibition is curated by Glen Hansen with assistance from Adam Straus.
The 13 artists in the exhibition live full or part time on the East End of Long Island and are influenced in numerous and nuanced ways by the area. Many of these artists have established careers, exhibiting for decades in New York City as well as nationally and internationally and are in the collections of major museums, yet have been seen very little if at all in Riverhead.
DETOUR II is curated by Glen Hansen with assistance from Adam Straus. The opening reception is on Saturday, June 5 from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. at both 133 E. Main Street and 11 W. Main Street, Riverhead.

Join us for an informal tour of the DETOUR exhibition at 133 E. Main Street with Franklin Hill Perrell, former chief curator for the Nassau County Museum of Art. Complimentary lunch will be served at 1:00PM, followed by a discussion moderated by Perrell with DETOUR artist Louise Crandell speaking about her work along with Joyce Beckenstein, art critic and writer. Joyce will talk about the work of Connie Fox and Arden Scott, both DETOUR artists who Beckenstein has known and written about for years. Amidst all of this, glimpses into the heart of art will most certainly be seen.
