November 2015

The 60th Annual Members’ Exhibition opens November 8 with Part One showcasing works by 130 artists. You are welcome to attend the opening reception on the 8th at 1pm as we celebrate the talent on display.

In answer to the many questions we have received, we anticipate release of the upcoming catalog by early December. The new catalog will contain class & workshop information for classes beginning January through May 2016.

Please join us for three upcoming events in November and early December. First up is TRYDAY Night on Friday, November 13. Starting at 6:30 pm visitors can catch live art demos by Anu Annam, David Peikon, and Suzanne Young. Also part of the activities are Open Mic Poetry Readings by Poets Aloud. There is no charge to participate in these two activities. Curious about jewelry making, abstract painting, pastel painting, or digital art? Starting at 7pm spend three hours getting a taste of Dana Neger-Lagos, Kevin Larkin, Joel Spector, and David Miller’s multiple session workshops. Read more about TRYDAY Night below.

Then on November 15 at 2pm, Ellen Hallie Schiff’s Art Talk will help you navigate the ins and outs of marketing your talent and selling your art. Ellen’s Art Talk is the 11th of the 2015 Lecture Series. We are grateful to the Suffolk County Office of Cultural affairs for providing funding for this program.

Last but not least is the Art League’s 52nd Holiday Fine Art & Craft Fair on December 5 & 6. This event grows bigger and bigger each year with larger crowds and a variety of art and craft to suit everybody’s holiday shopping needs. If you would like to show and sell your work, you have until November 11 to register for space at the fair.

As the season of giving approaches, please consider the many ways you can give to the Art League, whether it is volunteering your time at the fair, helping hang the next exhibit, donating directly towards programs, or just clicking on the iGive button as you shop online for gifts (see info on that below). Any form of support is greatly appreciated and strengthens the Art League’s place in the community.
