Now on display in the Patchogue-Medford Library’s Claire Davidson Siegel Gallery is the solo exhibition, Alternative Readings, featuring the artwork of Dan Lachacz. The exhibition was curated by the Patchogue Arts Council and consists of site-specific photographs of the Patchogue-Medford Library and Carnegie Teen Center. With his work, Lachacz takes the familiar and abstracts the perspective, resulting in images that are simultaneously recognizable and unfamiliar. His distorted imagery, and its’ disorienting nature, ensnares his audience, leaving it to question his subject matter as well as the environment in which it is shown.
