East End Arts: Photographs of Paul Dempsey / Riverhead Town Hall / 12.7 – 3.1.19

Art Exhibition Featuring Artist


Riverhead Town Hall Gallery
December 7, 2018 – March 1, 2019

East End Arts is pleased to announce a new art exhibit, Winter Scenes at the Riverhead Town Hall Gallery featuring the photography of Paul Dempsey of Southampton. Paul, a computer programmer and Webmaster by trade, describes himself as a fine art photographer and a “digital manipulator.” His keen vision captures ordinary details from daily life and transforms them into images of beauty and wit, filled with contrasting shapes and effects. 
The exhibition will open Friday, December 7, 2018 and will run through March 1, 2019 and can be visited during Town Hall open office hours: Mondays through Fridays, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The artist will host a reception on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 from 5-7 PM. The reception is a special opportunity to meet the artist and is free and open to the public. Riverhead Town Hall is located at 200 Howell Ave, Riverhead, NY (corner of Howell Ave and East Main Street; 631-727-3200). All exhibited work is for sale. To purchase, contact East End Arts at 631-727-0900.
Paul’s current series of abstract work focuses on macro images of nature combined with additional exposures of ice, snow, sand, and sky.  These futuristic scenes, inspired by the writings of Kurt Vonnegut, offer a wry commentary on global warming and climate change. Paul’s work is printed on a variety of substrates including metal, paper, and canvas.  His photography has been displayed in galleries such as Ashawagh Hall, Southampton Cultural Center, Water Mill Museum, East End Arts, Southold Historical Museum, Remsenburg Academy, Quogue Library, and Guild Hall. This year Paul exhibited at Art Basel, Miami, specifically Spectrum Art, under the representation of Artblend Gallery, Ft. Lauderdale.
Paul has donated his time and images for fundraising for nature conservancy and animal rescue.  He also currently serves as Vice President and Webmaster for the Southampton Artists Association. To see more of his work, visit: www.hamptonsgateway.com.
