The Art League of Long Island has emerged from the COVID pandemic with new in-person and virtual art classes, and its second live gallery exhibit of 2021: the long-awaited Annual Instructor’s Exhibition. Art League Instructor artwork is on exhibit in the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery October 30 through November 20. An open house and public artists’ reception take place Saturday, October 30 from 11am to 2pm. The open house and reception are free and open to the general public.
The Art League of Long Island boasts an impressive roster of art instructors who not only teach but also “do “. Many of the Art League’s instructors are award-winning artists themselves whether on the local, national, or international stage. The open house offers visitors a first-hand look at the inner-workings in the Art League’s specialized art studios through live demonstrations by the instructors. Demonstrations include painting, drawing, pottery, jewelry making, and more. Meet the instructors and learn about their classes and approach to teaching. Registration for late fall classes is open now, with winter/spring sessions to be posted online throughout late fall.
