PATCHOGUE, NY, February 18 The Patchogue Arts Council • MOCA, LI presents our newest exhibition Sidling running from March 13 – April 25, 2021.

The Patchogue Arts Council is pleased to announce a special Spring exhibition entitled Sidling. This exhibit brings together three Long Island-based artists all showing works influenced by shared experience or interest. It includes work by Kathryn Ko, Puneeta Mittal, and Barbara Rocco, and is curated by John Cino.

The Sidling-thread weaving these artists together is their encounters with cancer: medically and personally.

Artists are typically linked through form or subject matter.  “Sidling” is the term for the sideways locomotion of crabs, and the artists of Sidling are linked in a side-wise fashion based upon their experiences. – John Cino

Viewers are invited to experience Sidling at the Patchogue Arts Council Museum of Contemporary Art Long Island from March 13 – April 25, 2021. PAC•MoCA L.I is located at 20 Terry St., Patchogue, New York.

Also, the artists of Sidling will engage in conversation during Coffee with a Curator on Mach 20 at 11:00 a.m. All are invited to join us on ZOOM or watch along on Facebook Live. For more information please visit

By redefining PAC’s exhibition space from Gallery to Museum, opportunities for the community and the artists we serve grows exponentially. PAC has always been unconventional in comparison to other arts councils. Our primary focuses are to make current and contemporary art accessible to everyone and to serve artists across Long Island. We work to create inclusiveness in all of our opportunities for Long Island’s Spanish-speaking communities as well. Through our programming, we support, promote, and encourage early, mid-career, and established artists working in all media and all walks of life.
