The Art League of Long Island’s annual exhibit features over 200 works of art created by their many talented members.
Artists from all walks of life, those just beginning their journey into the visual arts and established exhibiting artists, will put their best foot forward exhibiting their artwork in mediums such as painting, drawing, collage, photography, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, fiber arts, glass art, wood, graphic art… the list goes on.
Entry into the exhibit is open to all Art League members and not pre-screened by a juror. However, awards of excellence and honorable mentions of the art on display will be selected by guest juror Dan Christoffel.
The exhibit is shown in two parts due to the large number of works. Part One of Members’ Exhibition 2019 exhibits Nov. 2 through Dec. 1 and Part Two exhibits Dec. 14 through Jan. 5.
