Pundyk’s unstretched paintings slip free from expectation. As a young girl she understood intuitively how to shape simple materials such as fabric and string to ground her thoughts. Much later she found she could adapt these everyday forms to make fine art. Operating beyond tradition has been hard won over many decades.

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.
