The Westhampton Beach Festival of the Arts returns to the Hamptons for the tenth year this Labor Day
"Once again, we welcome you to come explore art, in its myriad forms," reflected Ron Mellot. "Partake of that sense of appreciation and wonderment of what these talented artisans have created."
The Festival has grown into one of the country's top fine art events. The reputation and national ranking is not only reflective of the Festival itself but of the artists' talents and support of the residents and visitors of the East End of Long Island.
"For those pieces you choose to incorporate into your life, discover that unique connection, perhaps best stated as a 'journey,'" Mellot added. "The artwork opens a door and something within you takes you through that door, becoming a journey of exploring something within you. A priceless, enduring journey."
