The East End Seaport Museum will an Artist Reception for “Peconic Bay Seascapes,” an exhibition of paintings on display by North Fork artist Max Moran, on Friday, Nov. 25 from 2 to 5 p.m.

This exhibition celebrates the rich maritime culture of the East End. A portion of all sales will go directly to support the East End Seaport Museum.

Max will provide guests with a short talk on painting on the East End and the importance of preserving the region’s nautical beauty at 3 p.m.

Early in the 1990’s the North Fork, and Greenport in particular, had its own narrative and was going to require more than a handful of weekend visits from the city to get a read on it. Moran then settled in Greenport and started painting the storefronts, people, ships and dockyards, recording the character that made the area authentic and unique. Encouraged by other artists and new friends, he made this town his home. More than 30 years later, Moran still resides and creates art on the North Fork.

“While selecting and sorting through the paintings many memories came back to me like messages in a bottle,” said Moran of the show. “The East End Seaport Museum is a place where those messages can be seen, read and experienced, providing us a history of place.“

The exhibition can be seen on weekends at the museum from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. through January of 2023.
