Overview

For 82 years Guild Hall has reserved space in its exhibition schedule for the Annual Guild Hall Artist Members Exhibition. The first installment took place in 1938, shortly after Guild Hall’s inception in 1931. It is the oldest non-juried show on Long Island and one of the few non-juried exhibitions still running. Deeply rooted in the history of the East End artist colony, early participants included Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Alfonso Ossorio, Perle Fine, Bill King, James Brooks, Charlotte Park, John Little and many more, showing their support of Guild Hall and its role as their community Museum, Theater, and Education Center.

Due to the wonderful popularity of this exhibition, around 400 artists participate each year. The Artist Members Exhibition attracts remarkable art world professionals as awards jurors and we are honored to welcome Susan Thompson, Associate Curator at the Guggenheim Museum, as this year’s awards juror. Thompson is one of the organizing curators for the Guggenheim’s Young Collectors Council, which acquires the work of emerging artists for the museum’s permanent collection, and for the Photography Council, which expands the museum’s holdings in the medium of photography through acquisitions.
