Sag Harbor is home to many of the East End’s contemporary artists and writers, as well as a long legacy painters and authors, so it’s no wonder that the creative community is flourishing year-round. The village has nearly as many art venues as it does places to get a great cup of coffee—here are some current exhibitions at Sag Harbor art galleries. Plan your visits around the events of HarborFest weekend!
