We’re still in October, but it’s not too early to let you know about these four special exhibits & art events coming to The Art League in November (and one in December). Grab your calendar and find what you need below!
IMPart Ceramics & Bladesmithing Exhibit
If you haven’t read about it on this blog before, The IMPart visual arts education program connects returning Injured Military Personnel with transformative art experiences. These experiences are designed for creative enrichment, relaxed social engagement, redevelopment of fine motor skills, and expressive catharsis.
In this exhibit, IMPart participants will share the ceramics and blades they’ve made in the program. The opening reception is Friday, November 11, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm — the same time and place as the “Highest Honor” unfurling, below.
Art on Tap
For The Art League’s third Art on Tap, five craft beers from local breweries have been artfully paired with a work of art from an Art League instructor. Local restaurants have chosen a brew/artwork coupling to serve as their muse to create the perfect complementary appetizer. Enjoy the brew, bite, and artwork trifectas and vote for your favorite!

The Artistic Frame: An Inquiry into
the Enhancement of Paintings
- Where: The Art League gallery, studio 21 in the Torpedo Factory
- More info →
Remember Bill Adair and his Willy Wonka-esque gold leaf workshop? Adair (a frame conservator, frame historian, & master gilder) has curated an exhibit of his students’ frames, which are designed by the artists to act as extensions of the paintings they protect.
“Highest Honor” Unfurling
We’ve brought you updates on “Highest Honor,” artist Andy Yoder’s ongoing collaborative project, through the summer. On Veterans’ Day, we’re going to unveil the finished sculpture! Yoder has worked with veterans to create the piece, intended to extend the collaborative spirit of our WW2-era community to our present day community.
