Tripoli Gallery


Since 2005, Tripoli Patterson has married his love for surfing with his love for fine art and has organized, produced and curated contemporary art shows in various innovative locations around the East End of Long Island and New York City.

Tripoli Gallery Southampton, founded in 2009 as The Tripoli Gallery of Contemporary Art, has been serving as a dynamic platform for artistic dialogue between local and international artists and the East End community since its inception. 

In April 2015, Tripoli Gallery East Hampton was opened, bridging the Hamptons east and west, and continuing to feature year-round the stimulating blend of emerging and established artists its Southampton sister gallery has become known for. 

Trip believes that each exhibition he curates acts as a frozen moment of those artists' history - recorded, preserved, and globalized into perpetuity.
