This Fourth of July weekend is the perfect time to take advantage of the numerous exhibitions showcasing the talented artists of the East End. The North Fork is home to galleries, wineries and breweries, all of which are holding exhibitions during the holiday weekend.

Scott Bluedorn’s Message on a Bottle at Greenport Harbor Brewing
The exhibition started in May, but if you haven’t gotten the time to head over to the local craft brewery then Fourth of July weekend might be the perfect opportunity before the exhibition closes July 20. Titled Message on a Bottle, the show features sketches and prints of Bluedorn’s original label art for Greenport Harbor Brewery as well as work on other unrelated labels, and you can sip on some local brews, too. Taproom/gallery hours are Sunday through Thursday noon to 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday noon to 8 p.m. 234 Carpenter Street, Greenport. greenportharborbrewing.com

Vintage—Twenty Years Painting on the North Fork by Max Moran at Lieb Cellars
Another place where you can drink and see some fabulous local art is Lieb Cellars in Cutchogue. The vineyard is hosting North Fork artist Max Moran’s land- and seascapes in the tasting room. 13050 Oregon Road, Cutchogue. maxmoran.com
