ART IN DECEMBER – Reilly League of Artists

Saturday, December 2 - December 29

All Day



This new exhibit featuring the artists of the  Reilly League will open in the Oresman Gallery on Saturday, December 2, and will remain on display through Friday, December 29. The exhibit is free and open to everyone during normal library hours. In the exhibit, the artists have sometimes included groupings of paintings with the same subject, indicating the pieces were done at the same time at the League’s White Plains studio. When the artists do this, variations in the artist’s vision are easy to see. In other instances, only one painting of a subject is shown and identifying marks of an artist are more subtle. Additionally, there will be a reception the Gallery on Thursday, December 7, from 5:00 to 7:00pm. Everyone welcome.
