How would you like to support our local public broadcasting station, WPPB, and also enjoy an exhilarating day chatting with local artists in Greenport?
If the answer is a resounding “yes,” then the inaugural WPPB Art Show in Greenport is for you. This exciting event takes place on Saturday, June 8, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., at Mitchell Park and Marina located at 115 Front Street.
Accomplished artists will be displaying their original works in diverse media with entries judged by North Fork resident and world-renowned artist Hector deCordova, so you know that this is going to be one spectacular show!
I was very thrilled to be accepted. My original stained glass designs are inspired by the beauty of nature and I’ll be there with my hummingbirds, swans and flowers. I would love to see a friendly East Quogue face so, please, come visit.
And, speaking of artists, check out the cover of Dan’s Papers this week. The beautiful cover art is by our hamlet’s very own Peter Beston.
East Quogue’s very own Jackson Parli was honored as one of the brightest young students in the nation at an awards ceremony for academically advanced children sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY). The ceremony took place on June 1 at the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University.
The Westhampton Beach Middle School student earned his award based on his exceptional performance on a rigorous, above-grade-level test given to select students. Jackson plans to attend a CTY summer course in the humanities where he will be studying ethics. Way to go, Jackson!
