I am still, and often, asked about how the Art League is managing in our post-COVID world. This month I am so happy to tell you that yes, we are bouncing back and do we have a variety of fun things coming up for you! And, I can’t wait to tell you about them.
As I write, we are busy preparing to bring back to you the final piece of the Art League which was suspended due to COVID – our beloved Art in the Park event on June 3rd and 4th from 10am-5pm at Heckscher Park. I hope you join us for our signature event because we are beyond thrilled to bring this beloved event back to the community. This year, it is part of the Huntington Chamber of Commerce’s Public Art Crawl on June 3rd. Make sure to come early and support our exhibiting artists! We are proud to be supported this year by Legislator Stephanie Bontempi and Town Supervisor Ed Smythe.
Many of you reminisce with delightful fondness at the jazz performances once held at the Art League. We have heard you and we have planned a new fundraising event this summer – Please Save the Date for The Return of Jazz to the Art League. Join us on August 26th at 5pm as we welcome Juilliard jazz performers in the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery and light cocktails under the tent. Tickets can be pre-purchased here. Members, purchase your tickets early and receive a free cocktail!
And for something new – Save the Date of October 21st for our Made with Mud, Kissed by Fire fundraiser to raise funds for Ceramics Studios. Join us for an evening of demonstration, raffles, and light fare. Each attendee will leave with a complimentary bowl or mug donated to the event by our instructors and volunteers.
We continue to rebuild from our losses incurred from the pandemic, and we are looking to the future. We can’t do it without your support. Check out our catalogue for our upcoming class schedule, and join us for our current exhibition opening. The best way to support the Art League is to keep your membership current, and to continue to donate to our Annual Appeal. (You can also double your donation by checking to see if your employer has a matching gift program – ask me how).
