  • Greenport Harbor Brewing: New Stories Simply ToldGreenport.  North Fork artist Peter Treiber Jr. Creating both locally on his family farm- where he also works-and at his studio space at the Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn, Treiber uses his artwork as a means of dissection and discovery. Using reclaimed wood and fragments from vintage magazines, his work strives to discover the limits of the materials, thereby reinventing them and placing them in a new context and new narrative that evokes both the surreal and the satirical. Treiber’s wall mounted sculptures playfully mock rustic hunting trophies, while his paper collages range from absurd adverts to faded antique shop finds, all which bear a charming simplicity. Through Jan 31st. Tasting Room/Gallery Hours: Fri, Sat 12-7 pm, Sun 12-6 pm. Details.
