art sites llc

651 West Main Street
Riverhead, NY 11901
phone: 591-2401

As told in a Metro Region article in the New York Times, art sites is a "plucky little alternative art space." Its highly acclaimed exhibitions have featured diverse artists in the region and drawn serious attention of critics. In chosing art sites as a gallery feature, LI Pulse’s 2009 VIP Artists Edition said, “No matter when alighting at Art Sites gallery in Riverhead, there’s bound to be something interesting to see and experience." On the north side of the Peconic River, the gallery owners have sought to connect art, the environment and the community through Peconic Green Growth, a grassroots organization based at art sites.

"Art Sites brings inventive culture to the Western edge of downtown, & their shows are always worthwhile. Additionally, they make great use of their location, & strive to engage & educate visitors with the Peconic River."
~ Larry Simms
