On Friday, March 1, the Trapani Art & Frame Gallery, 447 Plandome Rd., Manhasset, will again collaborate with the Manhasset Art Association, allowing members to showcase works in a variety of media.
It will mark the first time the Trapani Gallery will select Manhasset Art Association member works for a rotating, monthly exhibit.
Approximately 25 members of the 100-member Manhasset Art Association are expected to participate by submitting up to three works of art in a diversity of media to Trapani for consideration for selection. The exhibit will not be judged. The gallery will select approximately 30 pieces of art and once selected, members will have the opportunity to show and sell their work. The exhibit will run through April 2. An opening reception is planned for Friday, March 1, between the hours of 6 to 9 p.m.
Trapani will then select works for rotating monthly exhibits that will continue throughout the year.
“This is a very exciting time for our organization,” said Manhasset Art Association President Barbara Silbert. “We are honored to be able to offer our members an exhibit of this caliber once again – and for Trapani to recognize our membership on a rotating basis is a milestone of achievement for us.”
Now in its 65th year of operation, the Manhasset Art Association offers three major exhibits each year in local libraries and galleries, workshops with a live model and a general meeting/lecture each month. The MAA currently enjoys the strength of 10 members hailing from the environs of Queens and Long Island. Entirely member/volunteer-supported, the MAA boasts a spirit of cooperation, friendship and a forum to exchange ideas while fostering a greater appreciation and advancement of arts in the community.
