Every year at The Art League means dozens of exhibits, hundreds of classes and workshops, and thousands of students. This year was no different.

But we also did lots of other fun stuff:

Some of this year’s most popular blog posts were answering questions like Why Do Galleries Use Red Dots?, What Art Class Should I Take?, and What is Surface Design?

Thank you for coming to class, exhibiting your work, attending events, reading this blog, and otherwise making this another great year for The Art League!

We’ll see you in 2016!

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.
