82nd Artist Members Exhibition Museum Mondays: Executive Director’s Choice with Andrea Grover
Gallery Tour of the 82nd Artist Members Exhibition led by Guild Hall Executive Director, Andrea Grover highlighting her personal favorites in the show.
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.
