Paul Dorrell discussion and book signing to start the weekend

November 14, 2012 by  

This Friday, November 16, the Art League of Long Island will be holding a book signing and discussion of gallery owner Paul Dorrell’s new book ‘Living the Artist’s Life’.

Dorrell opened his famous Leopold Gallery in 1991 and has been a major force in advancing the careers of upcoming artists since then. He has connections with such major entities as Warner Bros., H&R Block, and the Mayo Clinic, but he has also cultivated relationships with private collectors. His book details the failures and successes of his own gallery, as well as tips for artists on how to get their work into galleries and handle the pressures of the artist lifestyle.

The Art League of Long Island was founded in 1954 and is a non-profit organization dedicated to arts education for the public. It offers a wide variety of classes, exhibitions, and outreach programs meant to enhance Long Island culture through the arts.

This event will be held in the Art League’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery, located in Dix Hills, New York, only a short drive from Levittown. It will begin at 7:00 pm and last for about an hour and a half. Dorrell will begin by presenting his book and then give a shortened version of his career workshop. Following that, there will be a Q&A session and a book signing.

There is little doubt that the Art League will turn to printing companies to create flyers and other promotional materials for this event, as the organizers look to entice local art enthusiasts.
