Industry is an artist's guild and music venue located in the heart of Huntington village. The Guild currently has about forty members.
We are a space where art and socializing come together organically (hopefully) -without any of the usual financial underpinnings of the art world.
There's a bar, a stage and a cheese store to help with the socializing. Buy a painting and you support the arts, buy a drink and you support the spot; pay the cover and you support the band.
We don't charge ourselves commission (all sales go to the person who created the piece) and there is no cost to be a member.
It's simply a place where artists can congregate, discuss, experiment, and create free of any charges.
The idea is sublimely expressed by a painter, "Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together."
-anonymous one eared artist.

“The rain is cold but melts the snow.
The grass turns green and flowers grow.
A fawn is born.
It is the coming of the spring.”

Kara Hoblin - Flora / Fauna
Chalks & Works
Artist, Kara Hoblin works in various media, including chalk, drawing, painting, photography and collage. A sense of childlike wonder is apparent through the whimsical narratives of her work. Inspired and drawn to the natural environment she finds comfort in the feeling of the earth beneath her bare feet, icy saltwater on her skin, or crisp air brushing against her face. Working collectively to share, connect, and inspire others through creation and exploration of our natural light and darkness.
Flora / Fauna - Chalks and Works is a retrospective of Kara’s work over the last ten years. All of the chosen pieces show a delicate depiction of our relationship with Earth’s natural landscape and it’s inhabitants. She will be creating a mural of chalk, celebrating the romance of temporaryism.

DESIGNERS OF FINE FRAMING SINCE 1957
The Huntington Historical Society’s Soldiers and Sailors Memorial building was built as the town library in 1892. After the library moved to its current location at the other end of Main Street in 1958, the building, still owned by the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Association, was used by the Huntington school district. From 1969 on it became home to the Town Historian. In 2000, the Association donated the building to the Huntington Historical Society. The Society undertook an ambitious eight year restoration project and re-opened it as a museum in 2008.
Our Founding Mothers & the Origin of Our Collections, 1903-2023
The Huntington Historical Society began as an exclusively female organization in the early 20th century. Spawned by the success of the Town's 250th anniversary celebration in 1903, the Society's inception was due, in part, to the changing role of American women in the home. This exhibit presents a brief history of the Huntington Historical Society, highlighting six women responsible for its founding. The objects on display include some of the Society's earliest objects that were on display at the original Colonial Exhibit in 1903.
From Farm to Fabric: Early Woven Textiles of Long Island
Until the mid-nineteenth century, Long Island families spent many hours engaged in household textile production. Months of labor were involved, even before weaving took place–from growing flax and raising sheep, to processing the fiber, to spinning and dyeing the yarn. While some households had a loom for weaving simple textiles, families could also bring their homespun yarn to a professional weaver, who had the training and equipment to weave more complex textiles. Featuring locally made textiles from the Huntington Historical Society and Preservation Long Island, From Farm to Fabric: Early Woven Textiles of Long Island explores the influence that the available tools and materials had on the appearance of those textiles, with a particular focus on the design of woven bed coverings known as coverlets.
