The Art Students League Of New York Announces 2020 Fall Exhibition Schedule

Virtual & In-Person Exhibitions On View Now Until The End Of The Year

Today, The Art Students League of New York announces their fall 2020 exhibition schedule. The slate of events, which continues throughout the fall, features work by current and former students along with League instructors. 

The League is proud to be working on exhibitions in partnership with Riverside Park Conservatory and the non-profit organization, ChaShaMa as part of their Exhibition Outreach Program. The League’s Exhibition Outreach (EO) initiative displays the work of League artists in venues throughout the tristate area for viewing by hundreds and thousands of people. Students gain experience entering their work in competition, preparing their work for display, and marketing their work for sale. Since its inception in 2006, EO has placed works by more than 800 artists in more than 200 exhibitions.

What was meant to be a physical exhibition in partnership with Riverside Park, the Pollinators exhibition has taken on a life of its own. Inspired by the pollinator meadow, a space filled with native flowers and grasses that provide nectar, pollen, and a habitat for bees, butterflies, moths, and caterpillars in Riverside Park, artists explore both the visual language of flora and fauna, and the themes of conservation and change.

The “FANTASIA” show presents an eclectic series of works of art by League students working across a range of genres. This show’s mixture of forms, like its musical namesake, celebrates spontaneity and the gathering of distinct styles to create harmony.

Artists featured include: Walter Altamirano, Bruna D’Alessandro, Magdalena Dukiewicz, Debra Friedkin, Yolande Heijnen, John Parnell, Fulvia Zambon. More info here

In May 2019, several League students received a full year scholarship based on the merit of their work. This exhibition presents new works created during the following year by winners of the Merit Scholarship 2019. The scholarships were awarded by an invited jury of professional artists, critics and gallerists. The Merit Scholarship is given in support of full-time study at The League and is made possible by generous donations. The Merit Scholarships are awarded in three categories, Abstract, Realism and Semi-Abstract/Semi-Objective. All the students competing must have studied a minimum of 210 cumulative class hours and bring their physical works in for jurying.

Since the late nineteenth century, The Art Students League of New York has launched its fall exhibition season with a presentation of work by current instructors. Notable teachers who have taken part in this historic tradition include Peggy Bacon, Thomas Hart Benton, William Merritt Chase, and Robert Henri. This year’s exhibition features nearly 100 of The League’s diverse faculty and reflects the broad range of approaches and techniques of these contemporary artists.

Eighty-five students from The Art Students League’s Annual Concours exhibitions received the highest mark by jurors and are presenting their winning works in this online exhibition. The Red Dot Exhibition celebrates the exceptional accomplishments of these students. The tradition of the concours (French word meaning “competition” or “contest”) expresses a long-standing commitment to French atelier practices. As these practices were applied in America, and specifically at The Art Students League of New York throughout the twentieth century, the function of the concours has shifted. Today the exhibitions retain a significant competitive aspect with red dots being awarded to the strongest works.

This exhibition showcases the recent work of eleven exceptional artists who earned these prestigious grants in 2019 awarded by an invited jury of professional artists, critics and gallerists. Grants offer full-time study at the League, inspirational travel and expansion of artistic practice, made possible by generous donations.

The League was founded in 1875 by students breaking away from the National Academy of Design. That independent spirit remains at The League today, where students pursue their work unconstrained by dogma, politics, or burdensome tuition. We educate students in the language and process of making art in an environment where anyone who wishes to pursue arts education can realize his or her full potential. The League fulfills this mission by offering affordable, high-quality education and instruction in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, and assemblage. Artists who have studied at the League include Georgia O'Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, James Rosenquist, and Ai-Weiwei, among others.
