Meet the Curators 2017

Registration Closed for 2017

The 6th Annual “Meet the Curators” was held on Saturday, April 8th, 2017 at the Council Chambers, City Hall, 280 Grove St., Jersey City, NJ

Meet the Curators is a yearly event featuring the opportunity for visual artists to meet professional curators for 20 minute one-on-one discussions regarding their work and careers as professional artists. The yearly Curator’s Choice Exhibit is a selection by the curators of the best portfolios reviewed during the event.

What do curators look for when selecting artists? How does a visual artist get their foot in the door when approaching galleries? How can an artist present work that stands out in a competitive market?

Pro Arts Jersey City has long encouraged artistic excellence and a strong local community.  Meet the Curator presents an opportunity to connect with industry professionals and gain constructive insight on their work in a supportive environment.
