The Manhasset Art Association will exhibit a group show in the Gallery and showcases from November 4-25. View multi-media professional artwork, including pastels, collage, watercolor, oils, acrylics, and photography.

'Moon Goddess' - mixed media by Ann PellatonIn 1948, a small group of Manhasset artists were invited to meet at the home of Helen Jennings. Mrs. Jennings had a dream of organizing a workshop where artists could work together to develop their talents, exchange ideas, and foster a greater appreciation and advancement of the arts in the community. In 1949, a constitution was adopted, and Mrs. Jennings was elected president. The association held meetings at many different sites, such as the Old Firehouse on Bayview Ave., Patricia Murphy’s, Manhasset Hall, the old Onderdonk House, the Community Reformed Church, and, at present, the Quaker Meeting House on Northern Boulevard.

Today, the MMA still offers its members workshops with a live model, and three major art exhibits each year. All members are expected to help run the organization, and it is the spirit of cooperation that makes the group successful.

Exhibit funding is sponsored by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library.
