Break out the champagne – this is The Art League Blog’s 1,000th post!

For almost six years, we’ve done our best to keep you up to date with what’s happening in our classes, exhibits, store, and behind the scenes. With videos, weekly opportunity posts, exhibit previews every month, and interviews with our artists and instructors, we’ve kept you in-the-know with what’s going on in and around The Art League.

Like our Community Canvas, pictured above and below, this blog is a collaborative effort and everyone is part of what we do. As the saying goes, it takes a village! So if you have news to share, something you’d like to see more of, or a guest blog post you’d like to write, please get in touch with us! Emails and comments are always welcome.

Thanks as always to everyone for reading and commenting! To make sure you don’t miss a thing, subscribe to our weekly newsletter, if you haven’t already, and follow us across the Web on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, YouTube, Flickr, and Instagram.

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.
