March 2014

We welcome the approach of spring with open arms and lots of things to do this month at the Art League!

Spring classes and Summer Art Adventure programs are now up online, register early to save your spot. Hard copies of the catalogs will be mailed starting next week.

The “Hot Off the Press” exhibit is a sight to behold and a rare glimpse into the fine art of printmaking. These are not just any ordinary prints you see at the store. These are fine art works made by celebrated artists who have worked with Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) in Bay Shore, LI. If you missed the group tour to the ULAE facility, on March 27 you can get another chance to learn more about this artistic medium from Bill Goldston, who will describe the processes and dynamics involved in the works on view in the gallery. Bill Goldston, who now heads ULAE, will be introduced by the well-respected Independent Curator and Art Historian Dr. Kenneth Wayne.

On March 20, the Art League will be hosting the kick off for the Arthritis Foundation’s “Walk to Cure Arthritis”. If you’re interested in participating in the May 17 event, learn how by signing up for the conference call and/or attending the kick off event on the 20th.

Art After Dark is happening March 28, with Paul Bachem, John P. Cardone and Gloria Golden demonstrating, along with participating artists showing a diverse selection of works. Live entertainment is provided courtesy of Murphy’s Music, with performances by Jeff Frohman, Beverly Jane & Tom Aniano. Then on March 29, Janice Buckner presents “The Art of Performance”, the culmination of a series of music workshops attended by participating musicians playing many different genres of music.

All the events mentioned above are free and open to the public, however due to space limitations some require RSVP’s.

Looking ahead to April, on the 11th we will be having a benefit lecture conducted by Franklin Hill Perrell, held in conjunction with the upcoming juried exhibit “Landscapes: From Metropolis to Arcadia”. Please plan to attend this evening of entertainment and enlightenment and show your support for the Art League.

I look forward to seeing you soon!
