North Fork Art Collective’s founding members, painter Emma Ballou, multimedia artist Scott Bluedorn, photographer Madison Fender , photographer Jeremy Garretson, creative draftswoman Kelly Franké , chalk artist Kara Hoblin, and multimedia artist Peter Treiber [opened a working studio and gallery space on Front Street this August. With the idea of not only creating but showcasing their artwork, the talented crew aims to make art accessible and unintimidating in an open and inviting space.
To celebrate the launch of their East End project, North Fork Art Collective will host their Grand Opening on Friday, September 1 from 6 to 9 p.m. Guests will meet the collective members while viewing the various works adorning the studio’s walls, learn about the mission, and enjoy local food and beverages from First and South, Lombardi’s Love Lane Market, Bridge Lane Wines, and Greenport Harbor Brewing Company.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”normal”][vc_single_image image=”19997″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][vc_column_text]
