“Director’s Cut 2012” is back by popular demand with a new group of
dynamic young artists.  Get a preview of what art in the new decade
may look like as the Art League of Long Island presents a talent
showcase that best represents the individual voice in the collective

To see what a new generation is thinking and doing in the realm of
visual art, fourteen colleges and university gallery directors or art
