Port Jefferson, NY - September 27, 2015 - The first Port-to-Port Art Exchange was between Port Jefferson and Bridgeport CT in November of 2013. Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council is delighted to announce that this exceptional program will be presented in 2015 on Long Island. Port-to-Port Art Exchange not only opens opportunities for art lovers to see work from different communities, it allows artists from these different regions to connect with each other.
The Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council and The Art Guild of Port Washington are joining Nassau and Suffolk Counties through Art in joint exchange exhibitions, featuring artists from each other’s regions from October 6th through 18th. Artists from the Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council and The Art Guild of Port Washington swap gallery space for this unique Nassau/Suffolk art exchange.
