October Exhibitions at The Art League


October 2020 Open Exhibition

“Watermelon Platter with Figs and Strawberries” by Evelyn Rabin

View a range of works created by our member artists in this open exhibit, not limited by theme, medium, process, or content. This month’s exhibit was juried by sculptor Raymond Padrón; View it in the Gallery through November 8, or online.



Steve Moen: Across the Gorge and Other Spaces Between

In his solo exhibition, painter Steve Moen ponders time and the human experience, depicting landscapes marked by passing millennia; on view through November 8.


Rosa Leff: Expectation/Reality

“Cashing Out” by Rosa Leff

Papercut artist Rosa Leff contemplates the notion of “adulting,” and how the current pandemic has altered the routine stuff of life, in her solo exhibition; on view through November 8.

The Art League Gallery is now open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Safety of our members and our staff is always our first priority, so we will still be doing temperature checks at the door, masks are required for entry, and we ask that you keep social distancing practices in mind.




A global vision of myth—from ancient Greek and Roman tradition to the legends of various world cultures—is expressed in expansive and creative ways in this multimedia group exhibition at Target Gallery in the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Mythos is on view in-gallery through Sunday, October 25, or see it online.



Recent Acquisitions: Gifts from the Corcoran Gallery of Art

“Lily Tomlin, New York City” by Annie Leibovitz

 Saturday, October 24, is the final day to see Recent Acquisitions: Gifts from the Corcoran Gallery of Art at the National Portrait Gallery. The exhibit features over 20 portraits of historical and contemporary figures—from poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to comedienne Lily Tomlin—reflective of the Corcoran’s wide-ranging collection.


Enjoy your weekend, wear your mask.
