Back by popular demand, Ten Squared is a fundraising exhibit and sale for the Southold Historical Society. The theme of this fall exhibit entitled Ten Squared: Fall is Autumn on the North Fork. In this non-juried exhibition, artists are invited to submit pieces that are exactly 10” x 10”. Each work will be sold for $100, half of which will benefit Southold Historical Society. It is the perfect chance to collect affordable art from your favorite artists or even to begin your art collection. Created by artists living on the North Fork, The Hamptons and Long Island, the exhibition and art sale begins Saturday, September 15 at the Barn on the Historical Society grounds and continues on Saturdays and Sundays through October 7, 2018 from 1-4pm.

While visiting our Museum Complex, be sure to stop in to view the visual essay exhibition of the history of wine on Long Island held in the Ann Currie-Bell House. Clink! A Toast to Long Island Wine is open the same hours as the art exhibition and sale. Come learn about how and why the North Fork soil is perfect for growing wine grapes and how weather affects the vintage. Will the Hawaii volcano case a poor harvest? See photos of the changing workforce over the past 40 years. Volunteers will be on hand to answer your questions as you Tour the exhibition and our historic buildings. The suggested donation for visitors to the museum is $5/person or $10/family.
