The League of Masters Past + Present

Works by Art Students League Teachers and Students

Since ASL’s founding in 1875, the organization has been instrumental in shaping the American art scene. Many renowned artists have trained and taught at the League including Childe Hassam, Georgia O’Keeffe, Louise Nevelson, Mark Rothko and many more.

The exhibition is curated by John Smiroldo, President of Incollect and Robin Lechter Frank, Board Member, Art Students League of New York. It will take place at The Gallery at 200 Lex powered by Incollect located on the 10th floor and will be open Monday – Friday 9:30am to 5:30pm through October 9th.

“Our concept of the exhibition is twofold: to honor the historically significant heritage and some past masters of the ASL, and to celebrate the League’s immensely talented instructors, all of them artists to teach artists,” notes John Smiroldo, President and CEO of Incollect. “Together with Robin we curated a group of work that represents a wide spectrum of styles, honoring the League’s mantra that champions freedom of artistic expression and the nurturing of individuality.”

Featured work will include ASL teachers and students including, Will Barnet, William Behnken, Peter Bonner, Frederick Brosen, Sherry Camhy, Susan Cirigliano, Burgoyne Diller, Harvey Dinnerstein, Bruce Dorfman, Christopher Gallego, Leonid Gervits, Hans Hofmann, Leonid Lerman, James Little, Knox Martin, Margaret McCann, Mary Beth McKenzie, Frank O’Cain, Karen O’Neil, Michael Pellettieri, Peter Reginato, Edmond Rochat, Ephraim Rubenstein, Doug Safranek, Wendy Shalen, Costa Vavagiakis, Vaclav Vytlacil, Amy Weiskopf and Deborah Winiarski.
