ART STUDENTS LEAGUE REVISITED
May 3 – June 14, 2018
From the website: flinngallery.com
Ever wonder what do renowned artists O’Keeffe, Pollock, Rothko, Nevelson and Ai Weiwei have in common? You will be surprised to find out that apart from being famous and successful, they were all trained and taught at the Art Students League of New York. The League, which was founded in 1875 by a group of artists, has ever since been a critical instrument in shaping America’s fine arts and continues to remain a legendary community of artists.
On Thursday, May 3, the Flinn Gallery at the Greenwich Library will launch an opening reception for “Art Students League Revisited.” The exhibition includes diverse works of eight artists at the League and will feature sculpture, prints and paintings. Complementing a similar popular exhibit ten years ago, this exhibit seeks to highlight several current award-winning League artists and their varied and interesting work. The eight artists of different genres, working in different materials, have thoughtfully and successfully been selected by curators Linda Butler and York Baker. The result is an assemblage of artworks that are diverse, but also complementary to each other.
I hope you can join us! RSVP to Laura by Wednesday, May 2.
