35 years ago, Walter was a partner in a successful retail design studio operation that was focused on mid to high-end art and decorative accessories, handling framed art prints, paintings, sculpture, hand blown glass, pottery and other artsy items with several locations on the east coast. Now Walter decided to try it again in Greenport, an artsy little seafaring town on the East End of the North Fork of Long Island, with the only store of its kind on Long Island offering a wide variety of services focused on framed art.
The Emporium carries a good selection of original oil paintings, limited edition watercolors, Nautical and transportation themes. We offer prints from some of the best artists on the East End as well as the masters from yesterday and today. Contact us about our out door art show schedule!
