The Patchogue-Medford Library is proud to present Doors That Amaze, a solo exhibition featuring the artwork of Anne T. Baum. The artist’s new series consist of stylistic, watercolor renderings of various doors, portals, and entryways that the artist has come across during her travels.
‘Tis the season to be thankful!
The Patchogue-Medford Library is proud to present Things We Are Thankful For…, a juried, group exhibition featuring select members of the South Bay Art Association (SBAA). The works on display express the gratitude of each artist, and are made in a variety of different mediums ranging from photography, painting, mixed media and more. The exhibit is on view in the lower level Claire Davidson Siegel Gallery.
The exhibit features work from the following artists: Mariann Anderson, Krystle DiNicola, Marion DiNicola, Jacqueline Dupré, Angela Flood, Laurie Fosmire, Amy Fox-Bisagni, Kenneth Jackson, Roseanne O’Reilly, Jeanne Rogers, Will Ryder, Khurshid Saleem, Laurie Samara-Schlageter, Pat Lee Sweeney, Joan Tavolott, and Robin Ziemacki.
Now on view in the lower level Claire Davidson Siegel Gallery is Visions of Scenic Long Island, a solo exhibition featuring the artwork of Robert T. Bloom. The selection of works portray scenic landscapes and seascapes across Nassau and Suffolk County. Bloom calls his work “photographic art,” a multidisciplinary process that combines photography and computer facilitated painting. Each image depicts idealized representations of their respective environments.
About the Artwork
One work on display, Fall Spectacle III, depicts a breathtaking view from the waterside Cold Spring Harbor Lab. Bloom fills his composition with light that reflects off the shrubbery in the foreground through the landscape in the background. The light also exaggerates the extraordinary, changing color of the fall leaves. The juxtaposition of warm and cool colors, paired with the clarity of atmosphere evokes a calm, tranquil feeling within the viewer.
Another work on display is Fishing Boat Hamlet. The photo depicts a claiming day at Hobart Beach in Eaton’s Neck, NY. In this image, Bloom, again, enhances the overall lighting of the piece, which allows him to enhance the details of the distant trees, shrubbery in the foreground, and drifting boats. The picture is open and inviting, like the rest of Bloom’s work.

If you missed the festivities of last Saturday’s celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the Patchogue Village’s incorporation, we have a treat for you! Now through the end of September, we will exhibit selections from Patchogue Historian Hans Henke’s 100 linear feet historical display downstairs in the Clare Davidson Siegel Gallery.
The exhibit, compiled by Henke and Village Trustee Sue Brinkman, consists of copies of historical photographs and archival documents that span Patchogue’s illustrious history. You will be able to track the ever-changing face of Main Street through Henke’s photos, each captioned with its decade and geographical location. It is fun to see how the village has changed over the years and how certain locations have remained untouched by time. Other panels on view allow you to reflect on other interesting facets of the Patchogue Village including the Lace Mill, various Parades, Historic Hotels, and more.
Also on view, in the display case is a selection of objects and artifacts presented by the Patchogue Historical Society. An abundance of archival documents and historic objects fill the case, acting as a nice compliment to the pictures on the wall.
Interested in taking some history home? We have several of Henke’s book available for loan. Click here to see the availability of Patchogue: The Early Years and for Patchogue in the Twentieth Century.
The historical images of the Patchogue Village, compiled by Hans Henke and Sue Brinkman, as well as the Patchogue Historical Society exhibition will be on view in the Clare Davidson Siegel Gallery now through September 30.
