From January through May each year, students are invited to participate in the Art Students League’s class concours exhibition in the Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery. Under the guidance of their instructors, students select works to display, which will be judged by other League instructors. The judges award Red Dots for those works deemed best in show. At the end of the season, several Red Dot pieces are purchased for the school’s permanent collection.
Last week the classes of Mary Beth McKenzie, Joseph Peller, and Gary Sussman exhibited. Red dots were awarded to Carlos Arteaga, Rick Perez, Theo Leung, John Braden, Eliot Moses, and Carole Halle. This week’s exhibition includes work from the classes of Terence Coyle, Dan Thompson, Frank Porcu, Paul Oestricher & Chris Raccioppi, and Leonid Brener. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
