Orange You Glad It’s Autumn: Juried competition and exhibition at The Art Guild

The Island Now
The Art Guild of Port Washington/Manhasset

The Art Guild of Port Washington invites artists and community members to view our fall exhibition, Orange You Glad It’s Autumn on view from Oct. 7-Oct. 23.

The air is getting crispier as the days get shorter, ushering in Autumn. The vast works in this exhibition use color, scenery, memory, objects, and much more to represent this cycle of change.

The pieces in Orange You Glad It’s Autumn call upon the change of seasons to welcome transition. This exhibition includes student artists from Manhasset High School and East Rockaway High School, as well as an international artist from Sweden.
