Beginning in March 2019 PAC will present a new series of art talks in a very special way. Each art historical topic will be paired with wines from the associated region.
First up, John Cino will be speaking about Post-Impressionism. Get ready for some French wines as the art transforms from Realism to Abstraction and beyond in a thirty year period. Other fascinating topics will be explored in 2019 by guest speakers.
WINING ABOUT ART: Post Impressionism
Saturday, March 16, 2019 6:00PM – 8:00PM • $35
What better way to kick-off Wining About Art than with French wines
and the beginning of modern art.
Post-Impressionism is often marked as the beginning of modernism as artists abandoned the need for representational accuracy each with a unique form of abstraction based on inner compulsion. After touching upon the place of Impressionism in art history, the major
Post-Impressionists: Van Gogh, Seurat, Cezanne, and Gauguin will be discussed. The talk will conclude with a brief survey of those whose works followed included Picasso, Matisse, and Kandinsky.
This event takes place at the
PAC Gallery | 20 Terry Street, Suite 116, Patchogue

Constance Sloggatt Wolf, “Works on Paper” at Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts
January 14 – March 4, 2019
The Patchogue Arts Council is proud to present the works of Constance Sloggatt Wolf at their satellite gallery in the lobby of the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts. Ms. Wolf is an abstract artist working in oil on canvas and pastel on paper. Her large expressive compositions are visceral responses to the turbulence she sees in current events including climate change and the #metoo movement.
The gallery is open during all theatre events and theatre business hours.
Collected addresses the rarely considered role of the art collector. Collectors have an essential place in the art world. Their financial support and encouragement of working artists are essential for maintaining the health of the visual arts in democratic society. Curator John Cino selected the works presented in this exhibit from a private collection. The eclectic selection has both representational and abstract works which might have formal characteristic similarities.
Dear Friends of the Arts,
Once upon a time, not too long ago, you had to go to New York City to view current and contemporary art. The trip was long and costly. Then, one day, you realized-
Hey, wait a minute! I don’t need to go to the city anymore for art! The arts are POPPIN’ right here on Long Island, and I can enjoy art created by world-renowned artists right in my own backyard.
Throughout the year you have the opportunity to experience major arts events presented by the Patchogue Arts Council (PAC) that feature visual arts, music, literature, and performance works, right here on Long Island. The best part is you get to skip the cost of a museum and train ticket. What’s not to love about that?
Please consider making a year-end gift to PAC to ensure the arts keep POPPIN’ on Long Island. Consider giving $10 for the ten years of outstanding programming in the arts we’ve provided. However, a donation of $100, $200, or even $500 would have a significant and lasting impact. A donation of $1000? Well, WOAH! We can’t contain the POPPIN’ arts at that level! In all seriousness, we graciously accept and appreciate a donation of any dollar amount.
PAC continues to operate with minimal staff considering the breadth of what we present each year. The overwhelming majority of the hundreds of hours of work involved in each program is volunteer driven. Heck, you already know that! You’ve most likely volunteered for something! Almost all of your contribution goes toward keeping the programs POPPIN’ – from keeping the lights on in the gallery, to marketing and advertising initiatives, installation expenses, enabling artists to submit for exhibition opportunities for free, and paying participating artists for their contributions.
I ask myself daily, “What does having access to PAC’s programs mean to the thousands of people we serve annually?” Well, it means something as uniquely different to each person, as there are various artists of the POP art era. Our programming enables individuals to come together as a community with the opportunity for collaborative creative thinking and developing empathy and tolerance. Art challenges opinions and preconceptions by taking the artists’ experience and transcending it to the world of you and I.
Walking around Patchogue, you have opportunity to enjoy the Annual Sculpture Exhibition in the Patchogue Community Garden and the thematically changing mural that mirrors PAC’s annual festival theme. This enables you to expand your visual world as you view year-round ambitious exhibition programs in our gallery. Richard Smith, Bob Carter, Mel Pekarsky, Faith Ringgold, Howardena Pindell, Aminah Robinson, and Emma Amos are just a few of the world-renowned artists you’ve been able to enjoy on our gallery walls. We will continue creating imPACtful exhibitions and cultural experiences for the community with your help!
For artists, access to PAC’s programming means substantial opportunity for professional advancement. Artists are often expected to provide the world with their gifts for free. At PAC, we believe in being a part of the solution to this problem. This is why we work tirelessly to create no-cost opportunities for artists to exhibit and grow.
Our Satellite Galleries at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts and Roast Coffee and Tea Trading Company accept rolling open submissions from artists to exhibit with no fee attached. We provide artists and groups a platform to demonstrate, and a chance to sell their work at Arts on Terry Contemporary Art Fair with no commission on the sales. In 2019, we will feature a space for PAC members in a dedicated PAC Members Tent.
Your contribution allows us to have free rolling submissions and enables us to provide artists that participate in certain PAC events and exhibitions with monetary stipends.
For kids and teens PAC exhibitions and events afford our youth a chance to participate in creative outlets, which provides a space to develop cultural awareness, critical thinking, and language skills. When a child doesn’t understand something, they ask questions. And lots of them! Investigation leads to improved academic performance. Your contribution will help fund our newest community endeavor, a school of the arts launching in 2019 featuring classes and workshops in visual, literary, musical, liberal, and performance arts.
PAC’s events, lectures, and screenings encourage us to listen, look, and experience. This challenges each of us to express empathy and be open to thoughts and views unlike our own. Art makes us feel. Your contribution helps keep our distinguished history of inclusion of increasingly diverse artists, cultural aesthetics, and innovation alive.
The Patchogue Arts Council is mindful of our responsibility as a community resource. For this reason, we take great care to ensure all people, regardless of economic status and residence can enjoy our exhibitions and events. Most of our activities are free, and the few lectures and screenings with fees are minimal. Your donation enables us to keep our events available to the Long Island community at large.
Above all, the arts create happiness. We all could use more joy in our day to day lives, and your contribution does just that. Your support enables the Patchogue Arts Council to present pleasurable moments in time, for reflection, experience, and enjoyment.
In Spring 2019 PAC has something amazing to reveal. It’s a secret… a grand secret. I can tell you this, it will POP the arts on Long Island in a way never before seen, and you will want to be a part of it! We appreciate your donation, at any level. If you donate now, we will add you to our exclusive top secret 2019 unveiling newsletter list, and you will be the first to know more about this super art POPPIN’ secret! You will also receive a PAC Keeps the Arts Poppin’ car decal to represent your commitment to the Long Island art scene.
A donation of $75 or more will also get you a Kidrobot Andy Warhol Brillo Object Blind Box! Warhol created his controversial Brillo Box series because he “wanted to make something ordinary.” Kidrobot and the Andy Warhol Foundation present these miniature tin Brillo boxes, each containing an art object celebrating Andy Warhol.
Stop by the Patchogue Arts Gallery to pick yours up with a $75 donation.
$100 or more, we’ll drop your Kidrobot Andy Warhol Brillo Object Blind Box in the mail to you, and throw in one ticket to our POPPIN’ Arts Long Island Party taking place in January 2019.$500 and up, POP to the party as a VIP with a guest!
So please consider supporting the arts today. Your support allows PAC to keep the arts POPPIN’ on Long Island by providing arts and culture to the community at the highest caliber possibly. We appreciate any and all contributions that are made, and most importantly, we appreciate you.
Executive Director, Patchogue Arts Council
PS… PAC’s 2019 secret is hard to contain… it’s POPPIN’ at the seams! Your contribution today will get us one step closer to this extraordinary POPPIN’ surprise! So use the envelope, write a check or visit our site to donate via paypal, and please give generously now. We are grateful for any amount.
Slide Slam will feature selected artists presenting their work for five minutes each. Artists will have the opportunity to network with special guests including curators and arts professionals seeking new artists. This program is part of PAC’s 2018 imPACtful connections: Island-wide networking for creatives and supported in-part with public funding provided by Suffolk County.This special programming will consist of five Slide Slam events serving as a catalyst to help unify LI’s creative clusters by creating numerous substantial opportunities for artists through collaboration with other organizations, curators, collectors, arts professionals, and collectives.As a result, we will strengthen the collective artist presence on Long Island like our neighboring arts communities such as Brooklyn/Dumbo, Hudson & the like. Slide Slam hosts will include Patchogue Arts Council (x2) & Muñeca Arthouse, Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery, Heckscher Museum of Art, and Haven Art Gallery.
