Members Show Opens This Weekend at Guild Hall

The oldest non-juried show on Long Island

The 81st Guild Hall Artists Members exhibition will open on Saturday with a reception for members from 5 to 7 p.m. and continue through April 6. The oldest non-juried exhibition on Long Island and one of the few such shows still offered, the members show typically features works in every medium by more than 400 artists. 

The winner of top honors receives a solo show at Guild Hall. Other awards include best abstract, best representational, best photograph, best work on paper, best mixed media, the Theo Hios Landscape Award, and honorable mentions. 

The juror for this year’s exhibition is Jocelyn Miller, an assistant curator at MoMA PS1, where she has been a member of the curatorial team since 2011. The exhibition has been organized by Casey Dalene, curatorial assistant and registrar at Guild Hall, and the installation has been designed by Christina M. Strassfield, Guild Hall’s museum director and chief curator.

Ms. Dalene will lead a free tour of the exhibition and a conversation with the winning artists on March 16 at 3 p.m. Museum Mondays will feature talks on the show by Ms. Strassfield (March 18), Andrea Grover, Guild Hall’s executive director (March 25), and Ms. Dalene (April 1).
