ARTworks Gala - 50th Anniversary

Join us!

Since 1972, East End Arts has aspired to "Unlock Creativity" and "Build Community" throughout the east end of Long island. For half a century, we ensured that everyone—regardless of means or ability— was afforded the opportunity to tap their inner musician or artist. As we prepare for the next 50 years, we invite you to join us at The Suffolk as we honor RXR's Rebecca D'Eloia, Studio A/B's Glynis Berry and Hideaki Ariizumi, the Artful Circle's Franklin Hill Perrell, and the Franchina Law Group's Emily Franchina with a celebratory evening of cocktails, substantial hors d'oeuvres, live music, dancing, a live and silent auction, and more! 

All proceeds from the evening directly benefit East End Arts in its efforts to celebrate artists and art lovers throughout the community.

Tickets start at $250 with additional sponsorship levels available

For more information, please e-mail Paul A. Johnson or call 631.248.0372.

About Franklin Hill Perrell (Excellence in the Arts Award Recipient)

As former Chief Curator at the Nassau County Museum of Art in Long Island, Franklin Hill Perrell has a finely tuned background in art history through the ages right through to contemporary art. His longtime connections with gallerists and artists enable us to bring our members behind the scenes on our visits. His passion for art is always evident through his lectures with his uniquely charming, yet approachable manner. Perrell is a graduate of Hofstra University and a talented painter and writer.
