Worlds Within Worlds: Oyster Season Kick Off
Special Offer: $25 tickets
Join the North Fork TV Festival and the oyster farms of the East End for oysters, small plates, drinks, and great music inside the Greenport American Legion while supporting CAST. Celebrating the North Fork TV Festival's closing night party, the high vaulted, Greenport American Legion will be transformed into a lively, illuminated fantasy aqua-garden, Worlds Within Worlds.
Worlds Within Worlds is the collaborative creation of recognized artists Bridget Elkin, Kara Hoblin, and Anne Sherwood Pundyk. Collectively, this trio has brought interactive art experiences to notable exhibition spaces locally on the East End, in New York City, and across the US.
Bandits on the Run, the acclaimed indie band, will be performing.
As Falstaff proposes in Shakespeare’s Merry Wives of Windsor, “The world is my oyster…” suggesting that reality has many hidden possibilities. The NFTV Festival’s closing party, “Worlds Within Worlds” will reveal and celebrate the blending of creative communities coming together to innovate. Spotlit fine art fantasy landscapes placed throughout the vast high-arched space blend with a reflecting pool-like video projection to create intrigue, suspense and delight. Partygoers move through the space enjoying the possibilities: mingling, dancing, and enjoying a selection of oysters, local food specialties, beer, and wine.
