Hello, DETOUR II artists! We are excited to announce the date of the first exhibition artist talks moderated by Franklin Hill Perrell has been set for Friday July 16th at 6PM. It will be held at and feature the artists showing at the 11 West Gallery. It's the first event to be held in this space and promises to be a great one. We will hold others throughout the show, including a talk with the Main Gallery artists, and are planning additional exhibition initiatives both live and virtual.
Speaking of virtual, thanks to the support of the LI Arts Alliance, East End Arts was able to invest in a 3D scan of the DETOUR II exhibition to create an online viewing experience of each gallery!

What is DETOUR?
DETOUR II is an annual exhibition that showcases the work of 16 of the many talented artists working on the East End of Long Island and the divergent forms, techniques, routes they take to arrive at their unique work. Each artist lives full or part-time on the East End of Long Island and is influenced in the 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.
