Belonging

Monmouth Arts invites members to submit work for an exhibition to be held at the Center for Visual Arts Gallery at Brookdale Community College. Through art we can tell new stories and further important conversations that enrich our sense of community. These connections can help us transcend crises, empower and connect us. How can artists shape how we imagine and celebrate a collective vision of belonging? We invite the vibrant, creative community of Monmouth County to submit works that explore those ideas and embody a sense of Belonging. Those artists interested in submitting must be current members of Monmouth Arts and agree to the exhibition guidelines. 

Not a member? Join here! New members can use the discount code BELONG10 to receive $10 off the $40 artist membership rate.

 

Monmouth Arts is pleased to be showcasing this year’s curated group exhibit in the CVA Gallery at Brookdale Community College. The exhibition will be curated by Elisa Elorza, CVA Gallery Coordinator.


Now in its fifth year, the annual member group exhibit is being named The Charles Sills Memorial Group Art Exhibit. Dr. Charles Sills was a painter, sculptor, collector, and supporter of the arts. He retired from his role as the Chief of Surgery at Monmouth Medical Center in 2000. His work has been shown at many galleries in Monmouth County and he won awards from New York's Allied Artists of America as well as Knickerbocker Artists.

Journey

 

In recognition of our 50th Anniversary, Monmouth Arts is reflecting on the journey we’ve been on over the past half-century as well as where we’re headed. Journey is a group exhibition to be held at Monmouth University’s Pollak Gallery. This exhibition will showcase works that express Journey as it relates to the artist’s experiences. Where have you been and where are you going? Contributing artists are all current members of Monmouth Arts.

Sanctuary

 

Sanctuary is a virtual group exhibit of Monmouth Arts members with a physical pop-up exhibit to be held in December at 10PRL, an arts and events space in Long Branch. For some, “sanctuary” may not be a physical structure or shelter but a community or a representation of what makes an individual feel safe or protected from the outside world. This exhibition expresses the experience of sanctuary as it relates to the artist's world, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
