Join Our Community Canvas

60 Years of ArtWe’re kicking off our 60th Anniversary year on January 9 during the opening reception for “Abstract Expressionism Revisited” – the first exhibit in our 60th Anniversary exhibition series. The works selected for this exhibit will honor the artwork created during the great 1950s Abstract Expressionist movement, the decade when The Art League was established.

 The beginnings of a giant community canvas will be unveiled during the evening, and we need your help to complete the installation!

Art League instructor Scott Hutchison conceived the idea for “Our Community Canvas” – a growing installation of 600 black and white, large puzzle pieces that will come together on the back wall of The Art League Gallery throughout the month of January. Everyone is welcome to come by the Gallery on the ninth or any day in January to contribute to the project by designing a piece of the canvas. We invite everyone to share their contribution on Instagram with the hashtag #TALCommunityCanvas.
