Celebrate the New Year with a new art exhibition and show us something “New”! This is a chance to exhibit a new artwork, experiment with a new technique or medium, you could draw inspiration from a pivotal turning point, or turn over a new leaf and exhibit your work for the first time or even the first time “in a while.”

Show us your interpretation of “New Beginnings.”

We look forward to seeing where your creativity takes you.

    Donate button

          We retain a small part of the funds         received from the State of New Jersey to cover the administrative cost of the art and history grant programs. This is nowhere near enough to pay for all the services we provide in Sussex County. For these we must rely on the generosity of our members and supporters. Please help! Any contribution is important and appreciated. No amount is too small. Thank you.
