OMG October 31 already – and today was a real treat! Happy Halloween!
After helping yesterday until nearly 8:00 p.m. checking in artworks for the Art League of LI members show (part 1, artists L-Z), I had the pleasure today of working as part of the installation team under Susan’s expert supervision.
What a thrill to see wonderful individual pieces of art come together as a cohesive show. It would have been fun as well if not for taxing the left side of my brain to make the calculations necessary to meet the exacting standards for properly hanging each piece. Add the heights of the two works plus another 3″ vertical space between them, divide by two, subtract the distance from the top of the frame to …€£§¥~&@<^… sorry my brain just exploded!
Seriously, make sure to catch the show; it includes all media and is varied in style, so you’re bound to find much to enjoy. If you come to the opening reception this Sunday afternoon you can meet most of the artists as well. It’s the perfect activity to balance your day after running the NYC Marathon!
Today, along with fellow Resident Artist Craig Marcin, I checked in many wonderful artworks for the upcoming Instructors’ Exhibition.
The Art League Open House and the exhibit’s Opening Reception are this Saturday from 11:00am to 3:00pm. Stop by to view terrific art and see several studio class demonstrations – as well as partaking of light refreshments.
Hope to see you there!
I look forward with much anticipation to attending next weekend’s Art Market Hamptons/Market Art + Design in Bridgehampton. I went last year and was impressed with both the facility and art – both of which rival much of what I’ve seen in Manhattan! I can’t wait to view quality art from national and international galleries – in a spacious, air conditioned facility. I appreciated not only the art, but that everyone was more than willing to share information about it. Get your free VIP admissions in advance through ALLI, which is one of the sponsors.
I am honored and thrilled to have been chosen as a Resident Artist in this inaugural year of ALLI’s innovative program.
It is no exaggeration to say that ALLI has been crucial to my identity as an artist. In 2014, my confidence as an artist was bolstered when I received the top award in the juried show “Pattern and Rhythm Through the Lens.”
Though I had already been a member of ALLI, that recognition drew me closer and I participated in workshops and other activities, which connected me to the local artist community. That, in turn, gave me the impetus to stretch as an artist by taking up painting
It is so appropriate that ALLI once again supports my efforts to explore new means of expression and development of my artistic voice. I am also pleased to give back to ALLI by participating as a volunteer, beginning at the wonderful Art in the Park event in June.
Thanks for joining my year’s journey as Resident Artist!
