October 2017

We are excited to have in the gallery an exhibit featuring the purses, handbags, and minaudieres by fashion icon Judith Leiber and the modernist abstract artwork by her husband Gerson Leiber. The couple share an amazing energy and love of the arts, and the exhibit captures their story in the aptly titled “Passion for Fashion: of Purses and Paintings”. If you haven’t done so already, please take a stroll through the gallery – it’s a treat for the eyes. You don’t need to go to the Smithsonian to see their work, it’s right on display in our gallery! For an extra treat on a Sunday afternoon, consider purchasing a ticket to attend the special reception. Details are below.

The fall session is well under way, the studios are bustling with painters, potters, jewelers, sculptors, printmakers, photographers… in short all kinds of artists. The next round of more than 170 classes and workshops are starting up, so register today to ensure your spot. Registering couldn’t be easier, just “thumb” through the pages of the virtual catalog below, find what you like and register right off the page. Going green couldn’t be easier and more convenient. If you have any questions, you can always call the registration desk during office hours.

With the fall season it’s also “Best of” season. The Art League is a finalist in Mommy Poppin’s contest as “Best Place for Kids’ Art Classes. Multi-talented Art League instructor Patricia Shih has been nominated as “Best Kindie Band”. AND…We are proud to announce that our own Andrea Manning, the Art League’s Program Coordinator and practicing artist, has been nominated in the Bethpage Best of Long Island’s contest in the “Best Artist/Painter” category. Please show your support and vote often!!

Enjoy the Indian Summer!
