Show Off the Art You Love at Newark Arts Alliance

The Newark Arts Alliance (NAA) is presenting its “Community Art Gallery” for the second year, on view Tuesday, August 5 to Saturday, August 23.  For this exhibition, the community is invited to drop off artwork they own and love for display in the NAA gallery.  Participants will be asked to write a brief statement (max 200 words) on why they chose their piece.  Works can be submitted from Friday, August 1 to Sunday, August 3, from 11:00am–3:00pm daily.

Works of art need not be original.  This exhibition offers a chance for art lovers and collectors who are not necessarily artists themselves to participate in an exhibition.  However, artists are welcome to submit their own creations.  Only one work can be submitted per participant.  Submitting a work is free, and works will not be offered for sale.

Hanging works should have a tight hanging wire across the back.  Central hanging devices (e.g., rings and saw-tooth hangers) do not work with the NAA’s hanging system.  The NAA’s Exhibition Committee will select as many works for display as space will allow.  The Exhibition Committee reserves the right to decline works, including works that are not properly prepared for hanging or display.

The Newark Arts Alliance will celebrate the “Community Art Gallery” with a reception on Friday, August 8, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  This event will be free and open to the public.  Drinks and light refreshments will be served.
