"The opening reception is free and attracts hundreds of artists and art patrons who enjoy catching up and viewing the over 460 works on view, many of which are for sale," said Barbara-Jo Howard, Director of Marketing and Communications at Guild Hall. "This year we are creating an online exhibition by inviting all to post images of their pieces by using #GuildHall."

Guild Hall's 77th Annual Artist Members Exhibition, the oldest non-juried museum exhibition on Long Island, will debut on Saturday, May 2nd. The exhibit showcases works in a variety of mediums, from over 400 of Guild Hall's artist members.
