Christine Dupuis Artist Statement
There is something addicting about painting in the great outdoors. "Everything becomes a painting" in Christine's eyes. You may see her as you are driving by the beach, a farm stand, or an old broken building. She is emotionally drawn to her subject whether it is because of the atmospheric light or the colors reflecting on the earth. Capturing the essence of her surrounding is most important. Christine organizes a group called Island East Plein Air painters, going out weekly to various locations. Her goal is to see the plein air painting movement grow on the North Fork of Long Island where the land is plentiful. There is nothing like the feeling of being one with nature, being so absorbed in the creating process while trying to capture the very essence of the moment you are in.

The Riverhead Town Hall art exhibits are a collaborative effort on the part of East End Arts and the Township of Riverhead to support local artists and introduce their works to the community.
