THE ART GALLERY
The Quogue Library maintains a state-of-the-art Art Gallery designed
exclusively to display works of art. The Gallery is an integral part
of the library, adding another dimension to it as the cultural center
of Quogue. The exhibits are initiated and developed by the Art Gallery
Committee representing new concepts and trends in painting, photography
and sculpture with monthly exhibits by prominent local and East End
The works include a rich variety of medium, genre and techniques that are enlightening, thought provoking and occasionally cutting edge. Special projects include Art and Design Lectures presented by well-known authorities and collaborating exhibits with other community non-profit organizations including the Westhampton Garden Club, the Peconic Land Trust, the East End Arts Council, the East Quogue Association, the Bays Artists Alliance and others.
Artists exhibiting with us agree to donate to the Library 20% of
the proceeds resulting from the sale of their works on exhibit to
help sustain the costs of maintaining the Library.
