East End Arts Council is a multi-award-winning 501(c)3 not-for-profit arts organization that has been unlocking creativity and building a community in the East End of Long Island since 1972.
The Council’s mission commits it to building and enriching community through the arts by way of creating a vibrant arts community on the East End that enhances individual and professional artistic development, stimulates community enrichment, economic development, and cultural tourism while encouraging a wide range of artistic expression through education, exhibition and performance, and collaboration across the community.
JANUARY 21 – MARCH 4, 2023
The Annual Elizabeth Richard Memorial Members’ Show brings together a diverse group of artists within the East End Arts community who possess an array of skills and embrace a variety of styles. This year, Member artists explore the theme of the horizontal- highlighting the illusion of depth and space this eye line generates in order to provide a compelling gallery experience for visitors. HORIZON is not a landscapes show as all mediums and interpretations are welcome. Submitted pieces must display a strong use of horizontal line.
East End Arts is more than the words in a mission statement. It’s a gathering place for artists and those that love art. We engage and build community through cultural tourism initiatives and programs that collaborate with government, civic groups, private businesses, and nonprofit entities.
We are a powerful catalyst for economic and cultural revitalization in our home base of Riverhead as well as the surrounding communities.
Our promotion of the arts unlocks the creativity of East End residents and acts as a stimulus for regional economic growth and community revitalization efforts.
Through galleries, community events, Art and Music schools, open artist studios, and a modern recording studio we build, nurture, and support a vibrant, inspired, and diverse community of art creators and art appreciators of all ages.
