QUOTE FROM Mayor Paul Pontieri, Jr: “As Mayor of the Village of Patchogue, I congratulate The Patchogue Arts Council on this their first Biennial exhibition. Over the last 10 years the Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts has with the support of the Village become a premier destination on the South Shore and has contributed to the renaissance that is currently taking place. I am pleased that in the same way, we now lend our full support to The Patchogue Arts Council and their efforts to bring fine visual art to the greater south shore community.”
