August brings with it a nostalgic summertime urge to lay back and enjoy this fleeting time of warm sandy beaches, lemonade and the wonderful outdoors. Greenport has been buzzing with tourists, boats and artists. If you haven't visited us yet this year, this is the time to take a few days to relax and enjoy Greenport. Stop by Atelier to see new work by Steve Alpert, Steve Berger, Mark Kopko, jada rowland, Jennifer Ribbe and others.
