Pumpkin Season

Do you recall this logo for Krupski’s Pumpkin Farm in Peconic? This sweatshirt which is part of the collection of Southold Historical Museum reads “Krupski’s Pumpkin Farm, Main Road, Peconic, Long Island, New York.”
—–
Today, Krupski’s is well-known for the variety of pumpkins they grow and sell. Their “jack-o’-lantern” display for Halloween is also a local favorite. But the Krupski family only started farming pumpkins in the mid-1970s.
—–
Going back five generations, the first Krupski farm was established in 1909 in Peconic. It was located on land that is now used to grow grapes. Today, Krupski Farm still grows a wide selection of pumpkins but also sells other seasonal vegetables and fruits.

“Winter” is a huge concept, so you’ll want to narrow down your creative ideas into a more cohesive theme. It might be winter on the North Fork, it might be a certain culture’s myths and traditions about winter, or it might be interpretations of winter seen through the eyes of different people. What are the natural processes governing winter? What animals and plants thrive during winter? Seasons of change are coming. Share your interpretation, literal or symbolic of Winter Wonders.
​—–
Artists are invited to submit up to 3 works which measure 10” x 10” and hang ready. All mediums are accepted. Art works should be dry. Please attach a label to the back of the artwork with Artist Name, Title, and Medium. (As noted: all artwork will be sold for $100.00, half which will benefit Southold Historical Museum.) Artists should visit the museum website at www.southoldhistorical.org for the artwork submission form and for more information.
