• Work by photographers Daniel Jones and Jim Sabiston will be on view Oct. 4 to Nov. 3 at South Street Gallery in Greenport. A reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4. 

In his large-format landscape photography, Mr. Jones “strives to capture the atmosphere as well as the majestic beauty of his subjects,” according to a press release. Mr. Sabiston, whose style is “rooted in a zen-influenced photographic realism,” has recently been merging photography and painting.

East End Arts will present an ‘Arts Mean Business’ seminar and networking party Thursday, Oct. 9, from 3 to 6 p.m. at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. The event’s theme is “Arts and Downtown.” Keynote speaker Michelle Isabelle-Stark, program coordinator in the office of film and cultural affairs, Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Planning, will give a presentation on “Destination Downtown,” an initiative focused on creative ways to collaborate on downtown revitalization efforts. There will also be a panel discussion for artists and business owners about partnering on projects to strengthen a town’s economic vitality.

The public is welcome. Tickets are $15 in advance or $10 for members of EEA, Eastern Long Island Executives and the Riverhead and Westhampton Beach chambers of commerce. Tickets at the door are $20. For information and registration, go to under Events.

The 10 winners of East End Arts’ fire hydrant design project, “All Fired Up on Main!,” have been announced. They are Tana Lee Alves of Water Mill; Suffolk Theater owner Bob Castaldi; Michele Czwartacki of Mount Sinai; Peter Levine of Patchogue; Drew Lockwood and Emily Lockwood, both of Greenlawn; Arlene McLoughlin of Massapequa; Caitlyn Shea of Melville; Joanne Touch of Setauket; and Barbara Wooten of Riverhead.

Painting of the hydrants, all in downtown Riverhead, will be completed by Oct. 10. An awards ceremony will be held Sunday, Oct. 12, during the Riverhead Country Fair. An artists’ reception will be held Oct. 31, during the Riverhead Edgar Allan Poe Festival.
