What We’re Thankful For

This Thanksgiving, we have thousands of things to be thankful for here at The Art League — each hour of time volunteered; each dollar donated; each artwork, frame, camera, and cupcake you’ve given.

Without your amazing, continued support, it simply wouldn’t be possible for The Art League to meet its mission. Your time, money, and gifts mean that we can nurture the artist through our school, gallery, and programs like SOHO, IMPART, and the Geri Gordon Scholarship fund.

From everyone at The Art League and everyone in the community we serve, thank you, and happy Thanksgiving!

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.
