ABOUT THE FAIR:
Arts on Terry Street is a collaborative effort of the Patchogue Arts Council, Inc. and Artspace Patchogue Lofts. It was conceived two years ago in a meeting with Patchogue Village Mayor Paul Pontieri; Village Trustee Lori Devlin, who is also president of the Patchogue Arts Council; and Artspace Resident Dave Rogers to create an event that would highlight the best art that Patchogue has to offer and to bring other organizations from all of Long Island to assemble an art fair with a twist – a big art fair feel on a smaller scale that would take place on and around Terry Street, the heart of the arts in Patchogue, and home to Artspace Patchogue, the Patchogue Arts Council, Inc., and the Plaza Cinema and Media Arts Center, as well as a beautifully landscaped park.
After a couple of meetings to work out the details of how to organize the event, the Patchogue Arts Council and artists in Artspace Patchogue came together to create the first ever street fair of this kind in the Village of Patchogue. Though the fair will have the usual tents set up like many art fairs around Long Island, there will be a few additions here in Patchogue, including indoor exhibits at both the Patchogue Arts Council and Artspace Patchogue. The exhibit at the arts council’s gallery will be its yearly member exhibit, PatchWorks, and Artspace will present two exhibits in its lobby gallery. One will be a small sculpture exhibit titled “Objects Assembled” curated by Lisa Di Stefano, a resident of Artspace; and the other will be the first ever National Artspace Artists Run Exhibit curated by Dave Rogers and featuring works by artists from Artspace buildings across the country.
