July 2013

Our recent art exhibit at Acura of Huntington, “Driven by Art”, was quite a success. The Art League takes pride in bringing artistic works of the talented Art League community beyond the walls of the League and into public venues throughout Long Island. Expect to see more cooperative exhibits in the comingphoto/portrait year. Many thanks to Acura of Huntington for providing such a lovely space and for sponsoring the 7-day cruise to Alaska for two to the winner voted Best in Show, chosen by visitors to the exhibit. Antonio Masi won the top prize for his painting “Morning Ride”. Congratulations Antonio!

I look forward to participating in the upcoming seminar happening at The Amsterdam at Harborside, titled the “Business of Art” where I will be speaking about “Art as a Marketing Tool for Business”. Please join me and my esteemed colleagues Dr. Michael Schantz, Regina Gil, and Angela Susan Anton, at this free, informative event on August 8.

Lately you may have noticed The Art League working with many local and (some not so local) businesses who, through cooperative programs, are helping raise funds for the Art League’s many programs and activities. These cooperative programs are a win-win situation for all concerned. Participation is free, you just need to avail yourself of the various programs to obtain discounts, and the sponsoring organization donates a portion of the proceeds of your transaction to the Art League. In this tough economy, every little bit counts and we need your help. Please sign up today!
