Photographer Paul Dempsey’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, FL.

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.



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. The public is welcome; admission is free.
