Attention: Long Island High School Art Teachers and Administrators
Advanced Placement Exhibition at the
Art League of Long Island’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery
February 4 through February 18, 2023
Artists’ Reception Saturday, February 18, 2023
APPLICATION DEADLINE: JANUARY 20, 2023
For the 16th year in a row the Art League of Long Island is pleased to offer the opportunity for High School Advanced Placement art students throughout Suffolk and Nassau counties to exhibit their work in an AP Art exhibition entitled, “GO APE”. Each school may submit up to 4 works to be apportioned as the teachers see fit among Drawing Portfolio, 2D Design Portfolio and 3D Design Portfolio. We hope to represent a wide cross section of media: Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Mixed Media, Sculpture, Photography, and Computer Graphics. This exhibition will feature talented art students working across Long Island and will give the students the opportunity to view artwork created by their peers in a professional gallery setting.
In that AP students are aiming at careers in the fine arts, presentation appropriate to a professional gallery setting should be stressed. Simple frames, properly wired (no saw tooth hangers), white or off-white mats preferred. Matted, unframed work must be shrink-wrapped with foam core backing. To encourage more attention to appropriate framing, we will be giving a special award for “Best Presentation.”
Awards will be given at the reception scheduled for Saturday, February 18, from 1:00 – 3:00 pm, and will honor outstanding work created in each two and three-dimensional content area. The students will remove their works on February 18th, following the reception.
To ensure space for your students’ work we are asking teachers to reserve space and submit one application for each work submitted. To apply please answer all questions on the application form at https://forms.gle/WzgPCXzHiz6vQt48A. Please attach the identification labels to the submitted works, one on the front and one on the back before dropping off at the Art League’s gallery.

Drop off dates for artwork:
Tuesday, January 31, 2-7pm
Saturday, February 18, immediately following the reception.
Fee for each student: $30
