Jerseyscapes III at Hamilton Square

Curated by Kristin J. DeAngelis and Dr. Midori Yoshimoto, NJCU Gallery Director

Jerseyscapes was the idea of Curator Midori Yoshimoto, NJCU Gallery Director, who is now seeing its third iteration. Jerseyscapes III will be exhibited at SILVERMAN Hamilton Square Condominiums in Jersey City from May 13 – August 21, 2020.

The initial selection from Jerseyscapes Revisited, curated by Midori Yoshimoto, has taken place. Curator for SILVERMAN, Kristin J. DeAngelis, will be selecting approximately 12 additional pieces to complete the new version of Jerseyscapes. This is a Pro Arts New Jersey members’ only exhibition.

Focus will be on landscapes and scenes inherent to New Jersey. 

Important note: If you exhibited your work in Jerseyscapes Revisited at NJCU in October 2019 but did not receive notice that your work has been selected for Jerseyscapes III at SILVERMAN Square Condominiums, you are encouraged to submit to this Call for consideration.
