News from the Art League Plein Air Painters

The Art League Plein Air Painters, a group we last heard from when they visited Norfolk, took New York by storm this month, with three members’ works accepted to the American Artists Professional League 83rd Grand National Exhibition. The show is running through tomorrow, November 11, at the Salmagundi Club.

Lynn Mehta under her award-winning Appalachian Valley.

Jill Banks, Lynn Mehta and Jean Schwartz were in the show, and Lynn’s painting, Appalachian Valley, won the John Collins Memorial Award. Congratulations!

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
