Salons 2018

Pro Arts Jersey City presents
Salons 2018
An Exploration by Professional Artists Across New Jersey

Exhibition Runs: Sept 4-29, 2018
Venue: Watchung Arts Center, 18 Sterling Road, Watchung, NJ
Artists Reception: Sunday, September 9, 1-4pm
Curator: Michael Endy

Drawing from a series of Salons coordinated by Pro Arts Jersey City, Salon 2018 presents the culmination of a series of meetings by groups of artists over a nine-month period. Seeking to inspire community, encourage cross-disciplinary learning and deliver an opportunity for professional artistic development, Pro Arts gave each group the freedom to present their collective vision for this show. With 27 participating artists divided into 4 salon groups (determined by zip code rather than medium), groups worked collaboratively, consulting with a Curatorial Advisor twice throughout the collaboration period to engage in conversations about development of their work.

We will be hosting a professional development event at the gallery during the month of September. Details to be announced shortly.

The Watchung Arts Council is a nonprofit, volunteer-run Center excels in cultivating an eclectic mix of professional and emerging artists in the performing and visual arts. Quality works in fine arts, exciting music, and comedy events are presented to enthusiastic audiences. WAC encourages active membership, community involvement, and inspirational discussions that only a multidisciplinary arts organization can achieve.

Pro Arts Jersey City is a professional membership artist community that is dedicated to the advancement and promotion of visual artists and their work.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery Hours- Tue-Fri: noon – 5 p.m., Saturday: 10 – 3 p.m. Sunday & Monday: closed.
