Sandra Benny/Richard Vaux:
 A Working Relationship
  gallery photo  
View the artistic beauty of Sandra Benny and Richard Vaux's homage 
to the natural environment. 
These internationally acclaimed local artists, who are husband and wife, share a passion for art and nature.  Her nature-inspired works take colored pencil drawing to a rare level of exactitude, producing works that astonish the eye and the mind.    His works of nature-derived abstractions in blown powdered graphite or charcoal (often with an added veil of airbrushed acrylic), and his works in acrylic and oil are "visual poems" of light and illumination.

banner What a great turnout at the Art League's Open House held
on September 8!  Hundreds of people of all ages enjoyed a day of art activities. In each of the Art League's art studios and gallery, the family-friendly event had something for everyone: live art demonstrations, hands-on workshops, mural-making, a "Small Delights" Art Show and Sale, plus other crowd-pleasing activities. Take a look at the highlights of the day on our website!  

NY's Golden Age of Bridges 3  
Antonio Masi's Book demonstration and book signing on September 29  
proved to be a smashing success with a gallery full of eager spectators.   
Mr. Masi is a local artist whose fascination with the bridges of New York  
City inspired him to team up with author Joan Marans Dim to write  
New York's Golden Age of Bridges.
