Somehow, I have the privelege of being present with work in some of the numerous annual Outreach Exhibitions mounted by Leah McCloskey for the Art Students League of New York. I have, no doubt, exhausted my praise for the League, but I write to say "art is alive and well" at the Art Students League, and the shows are filled with some extremely brilliant works.
Currently I have a piece in the 2nd Annual Summer Show, hosted by Scott Springer, Manhattan's Borough President, and current candidate for Comptroler of NYC opposed by Elliot Spritzer, formerly disgraced Governor of the State of NY.
On the 19th floor of one of Manhattan's wonders of architecture and engineering prowess, #1 Centre Street!

When you enter the great brass gates, and sign in, at the long diagonal desk, that points arrow-like to the entrance of the Gallery. You are then surrounded by a beautifully hung expansive view of art from many diverse, all professional, artists with works that go from the Classical to the most ultra modern digital works.
If you are a serious, or a beginning collector, or seeking a weekday entertainment, catch the Summer Show at the Manhattan Borough Presidents Office and for very little money, avail yourself of an original work of art from a bonafide member of that very prestigious and long time champion of Art Education, that influenced world art education.
