August 24 - September 15
Open House and Reception: Saturday, August 24, 11am to 3pm

The Art League of Long Island boasts an impressive roster of about 60 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. Their work is on exhibit in the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery August 24 to September 15. An open house and public artists’ reception take place August 24 from 11am to 3pm. The open house and reception are free and open to the general public.

The open house offers visitors a first-hand look of the inner-workings in the Art League’s specialized art studios through live demonstrations by Art League instructors. Demonstrations include watercolor painting, oil painting, pottery, jewelry making, photography and more. Meet the instructors and learn about their classes and approach to teaching.
