National Art League to Debut Student Exhibition This Weekend

Gallery will display works from 70 students through the end of the month.

The will kick off the New Year with an exhibition opening this weekend that will display the work of students who take classes at the Douglaston gallery.

The league will hang the work of an estimated 70 students that encompass a wide variety of styles, including watercolor, oil, mixed media and pastel, said Sheila Blunt, the gallery’s education director.

“They do a lot of landscapes, floral, images of people and abstruct,” Blunt said of the students’ work. “It runs the gamut.”

The exhibit will be open to the public on Sunday after the league has finished putting up the work. It will run through the end of the month.

On Jan. 22, the gallery will host a reception for the exhibit’s artists from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

“We have a very active student body,” Blunt said. “Many of the students are also members. We have a few exhibiting for the first time. We have many who are professional artists. Many of the students taking classes here could also teach classes.”

Most of the works in the show, which is not juried, are for sale, ranging in price from $150 to $800.

“We have a range of students from beginners to very experienced painters who have outlets for selling their work elsewhere,” Blunt said.

The league, located at 44-21 Douglaston Parkway, will host its small works show in February and a display of children’s work in June.
