Gilbert Roseman, who recently retired as the ’s Board Chairman, was honored at a private reception held in the League’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery March 30.
Roseman’s years of dedication and stewardship of the Board were celebrated by fellow board members, staff, faculty and friends of the Art League.
Noted artist and faculty member Dan Christoffel presented the recently retired chairman with a personalized pastel portrait of his likeness.
Roseman served as Chairman since 2009, and 10 years prior to that, as legal counsel. During his tenure on the board, Roseman was instrumental in re-locating the Art League from Elwood to its larger facility in Dix Hills.
Since that time, the Art League has expanded to serve about 3,000 art students annually, offers more than 200 art classes and workshops throughout the year, and established a first-class gallery featuring works by local and national artists.
Roseman is a founding partner of the firm Roseman & Roseman LLP, specializing in commercial real estate and estate and trust practice.
Roseman, formerly of Dix Hills, currently resides in Kings Park. Succeeding him as Chairman is Fred Avril of Setauket, a retired Marketing Executive of the Long Island Power Authority.
