RSVP for the Opening Reception here.
Since the annual Student Concours exhibitions began at The Art Students League in the early 1900’s, which take place every week, one outstanding student work from each exhibiting class has been awarded a “red dot” by a juror. These shows are held on a weekly basis in the League’s gallery from January through May each year. The jurors are selected artists and instructors from The Art Students League who make their selection solely based on the quality of the work.
The Red Dot Exhibition presents these selected paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, and multimedia works as an exciting start of the artistic career of each of these talented students. In addition to providing support and encouragement, this show is a wonderful opportunity for the public to see what has been created at The League over the last year and to purchase work from artists at the beginning of their careers.
We invite you to stop by the Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery to see this year’s exceptional exhibit of our most outstanding artists.
The tradition of the concours (French word meaning “competition” or “examination”) express a long-standing commitment to French atelier practices. As these practices were applied in America and specifically at The Art Students League throughout the twentieth century, the function of the concours has shifted. Today the exhibitions retain a significant competitive aspect with red dots being awarded to the strongest works, but the shows have evolved into a community-oriented activity that represents a range of artistic styles.
