About the exhibit:

Curators’ Choice is an annual Pro Arts Jersey City exhibition that celebrates exemplary artists and their work. The artists chosen for this exclusive show participated in the Meet the Curators’ 2020 where artists met with curators for one-on-one 20 minute sessions in order to expand their professional network and get feedback on their portfolios. 34 artists met with 10 curators. At the end of the day, the curator reviewers were asked to name their top pick portfolios and those artists were invited to exhibit in the Curators’ Choice show.

2020 marked the ninth year for the Pro Arts’ Meet the Curators portfolio review. This was the first year it was produced online rather than the traditional physical manner.

Special thanks to Bryant Small, Co-President of Pro Arts, producing and managing the event, and for creating the virtual exhibition. Also many thanks to the participating curators: Anonda Bell, Laura Bonas-Palmer, Virginia Butera, Wilson Duggan, Donna Kessinger, Eileen Jeng Lynch, Jo-El Lopez, Cheryl and Christopher Mack, and Judith Page.

Huge congratulations to all the artists selected for Curators’ Choice 2020!
