JACQUELINE WEYN MEMORIAL AWARD

Best in Show

Few members of our Art League have made as positive an impact as our First Vice President, Jackie Weyn. As chairperson for exhibitions Jackie, for countless seasons, managed the team that scouted out interesting and sometimes elegant venues for our shows. Extraordinarily memorable spaces included Lincoln Center and Lever House in Manhattan.

 

Jackie was a most accomplished watercolorist. Many members were introduced to our League through watercolor painting classes that Jackie held in her basement studio. Our richness is in our talented painter members, a resource that exists in large part through Jackie’s influence.

 

Along with her talent as an artist, Jackie has steadfastly stood for excellence in art and in her respect for the traditions of the Art League of Nassau County.  This Award is given to an outstanding artist who exemplifies those attributes.
