Art & Sculpture Galleries
A World-Class Sculpture Garden
Art Without Barriers: What you hear is what you see…
The North Fork’s only Sculpture Garden, this outdoor gallery features 18 different works sprinkled throughout Peconic Landing’s campus. Established in 2010, it is home to regional, national and internationally recognized artists showcasing a diversity of material, techniques, and content. Our exhibition, Art Without Barriers: What you hear is what you see, is all about accessibility, with a particular focus on the visually impaired. The garden features descriptive audio, enabling people of various abilities to experience art in creative ways.
Guests have the option of using descriptive audio narration available via a free smartphone download, large print or Braille catalogs, as well as easy access to the garden by way of cleared foot trails to improve the tour experience. Art descriptions adhere to standards set by the American Foundation for the Blind. Visitors are also invited to touch the sculptures to get a sense of their texture and design.
Garden tours are free and open to the public from June through October, sunrise to sunset. For a free private tour of the gallery, or to schedule group tours, please contact Dominic Antignano, Cultural Arts Curator at 631-477-3800 ext. 229.
Learn about our current gallery selection in the 2017 Show Catalog. Newly remastered descriptive audio podcasts featuring the artists are available from Soundcloud and our iTunes channel.

Peconic Landing’s Auditorium Theatre is transformed several times each year displaying works by revolving artists from floor to ceiling. Each show is curated by Peconic Landing’s Arts Committee, often in cooperation with artists from East End Arts, a local arts advocacy organization. This spacious gallery allows for large dimensions, bringing a uniqueness to the Auditorium Theater.
Guests are welcome to enjoy these works of art while joining us for any of our open to the public events or by contacting Dominic Antignano, Cultural Arts Curator, for a private showing. Contact us at 631-477-3800 for more information.
