Through a competitive application process, four Long Island artists have been selected to become the second group of Resident Artist Members at the Art League of Long Island. Established in 2018, the Resident Artist program is designed to provide a select group of Long Island based artists with skill-building and community based opportunities to further develop their careers in the visual arts.
The program, conceived by Art Education Program Manager Andrea Manning, offers resident artists over the course of one year 150 hours of free class time, an exhibition opportunity, collaborative projects and teaching opportunities. Through these activities and other collaborative projects, these artists will engage with and become leaders in the community of one of the region’s leading visual arts centers. The membership runs June 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020, culminating in the opportunity to teach a one-day workshop in the summer of 2020. The following artists have been selected to participate in the residency: Michael Krasowitz, Christophe Lima, Sam Neukirch, and Tara Leale Porter.
Meet the 2019-2020 Resident Artist members at "Meet the Artists: Conversations on Art" on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 6:30pm. At the event the Resident Artists will give talks that offer a glimpse into the artistic process; discover how artists turn their ideas into art. Learn about the story and the intention behind their work from the artists themselves. The event is free and open to the public.
