The Art League of Long Island will celebrate its grand reopening Saturday with an open house.
Like many businesses and organizations, the league took a serious hit from the Covid-19 epidemic, struggling to remain viable. But it hung on, with the support of members of the community and government aid programs.
Saturday’s open house, which runs from 11am to 2 pm, kicks off the opening reception of the Art League’s Annual Instructor’s Exhibition.
The exhibition features works by instructors in the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery and will run through Sept.22. 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. Hands-on activities for all ages from 5 to 95+. Meet the instructors and learn about their classes and approach to teaching.
