There’s an old French Renaissance style building that stands between Broadway and 7th Avenue in New York City. It’s called The Art Students League of New York and schooled many of the greatest artists of our time – such as William Merrit Chase, George Bellows, Georgia O’Keefe, Norman Rockwell, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko to name but a few who studied and taught there. And in Woodstock, NY, The Art Students League had its satellite campus from 1906 to 1979, later to become the Woodstock School of Art.

The spirit of The Art Students League in both schools is continuous and undeniable since its founding in 1875 to this very day. I had the honor of studying and working in both The Art Students League and The Woodstock School of Art and painted beside many of the established artists, instructors, and emerging artists that both schools have produced and are presented here in this very special exhibition. As a curator for the Lace Mill Galleries, I am again honored to present The Spirit of The Art Students League, works from painters, printmakers, and sculptors associated with both schools currently and as far back as the 1950’s. The spirit continues. — James Martin, Curator
