We’re proud to have a group of talented artists as instructors here at The Art League, and we love sharing what they’re up to! Here are some news items from The Art League faculty:

Robert Liberace’s award

Avis Fleming’s “Images”

Avis Fleming: “Images”

Avis Fleming teaches sketchbook workshops this year at The Art League, but sketchbooks aren’t the only place she’s making her mark! You can see her exhibit “Images” through June 28, 2017 at Printmakers, Inc. (Studio 325 at the Torpedo Factory, upstairs from The Art League.) “Images” includes paintings, prints, and ceramics by Fleming, demonstrating her gestural drawing technique.

Painting in Thomas, West Virginia

Thomas, West Virginia

“A tiny town is assembled, snow-globe-like, on only one side of the street.”

That’s Travel & Leisure writing last month about Thomas, West Virginia — a town name you’ll recognize if you’ve flipped through our catalog. A Week in Thomas, West Virginia is a five-day workshop this August with Danni Dawson, Mike Francis, and Paul Lucchesi. Students are free to paint and sculpt with the different instructors as they wish, and enjoy the small-town charm of Thomas.

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.
