Arts on Terry Street Arts Fair

20 Terry St
Patchogue, New York 11772

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 curated by Lisa Di
Stefano, a resident of Artspace; and the other will be the first ever national
Artspace exhibit run by and featuring works by artists from Artspace buildings
across the country. The fair will also include sculptures in the park, street
artists, chalk artists, demonstration artists in painting, ceramics, glass, and
live drawing as well as performance artists in music, body painting, poetry
reading, and more.
