May 2023

We are officially into the throes of spring and as I type, I find myself bewildered that the first third of the year has come and gone!

We are busy, busy, busy preparing for our Art in the Park festivities on June 3rd and 4th at Heckscher Park, returning this beloved event back to the community.  This year, we have the support of Legislator Stephanie Bontempi and of Supervisor Ed Smyth – please take a moment to thank them and the rest of the Town of Huntington Parks Department staff for assisting us with this event.  Please join us on both days and support our exhibiting artists who will be selling their handmade fine art.

We continue to be just as busy in the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery.  You have just a few more days to enter your artwork into our Big Picture exhibition!  This exhibition will be on view next month.  I am looking forward to seeing all of your submissions and the final exhibition, jurored by Simon Levenson.

We’ve added more classes to our roster, including some on Wednesdays for the summer!  Check out our class catalogue here.  And, we have added more programs to our Summer Art Adventure Program too, bringing it back to five weeks this summer!  Registration is open for SAA and our Summer Pre-College Portfolio Program.

While we continue to rebuild from our losses incurred from the pandemic, we are looking to the future to bring you exciting new classes, challenging workshops, and stimulating exhibitions.  We can’t do it without your support. Please fuel your creativity, expand our programs, give to our future, and push the button. . . Donate to the Art League today!

Thank you, as always.
