Established in 1955, the Art League of Long Island is a not-for-profit visual arts center located in the heart of Long Island. From art classes and workshops to exhibitions, special events and more, the Art League of Long Island provides the public with a full calendar of activities covering a wide variety of interests.
The Art League’s spacious bi-level Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery hosts about a dozen exhibits each year, featuring works by up and coming and established Long Island artists. The Annual Members’ Exhibition provides all Art League members an opportunity to show their artwork in a gallery setting, as well as the opportunity to sell their work. Shown in two parts at the end of the calendar year, the Members’ Exhibition showcases approximately 200 works of art. A guest juror selects Awards of Excellence and Honorable Mentions, offering new artists a chance to build on their resumes.
The Art League’s juried exhibitions invite artists from Long Island to submit 2D and 3D artwork with their interpretations of the exhibition theme. A guest juror selects who from among the applicants will be exhibiting in the show, and in addition selects Awards of Excellence and Honorable Mentions. At other times of the year the exhibition committee screens artists who request exhibition space in the gallery and those with the best portfolios are selected for exhibition.
Art enthusiasts looking for artwork to add to their collections will find the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery a tremendous resource for discovering new artists as well as connecting with their favorite local artists.
The gallery space is also available to organizations looking for a unique location to hold special events (subject to availability).
