Despite all of the drama, debate and shutdowns being announced in NJ recently, the NJ State Council on the Arts and its marketing arm, Jersey Arts are still in existence. (Keep your fingers crossed and write to your Senators / Assembly persons - go to ArtPrideNJ.)
I've recently benefited by Jersey Arts. One of the pages on their site is an Artist Gallery devoted to featuring a selected NJ Artist for a month that coincides with an exhibition or event they are having in NJ. I applied and was accepted. Go to the Jersey Arts home page to see my work - online through April 30th.
In addition to the art gallery, this newly redesigned web site features the following:
- Event Calendar
- Event Picks
- Poetry Page
- Arts Directory
- Online Store
- And more . . .
As an emerging artist, timing is everything so thank you to Jersey Arts and Jim Atkinson and Kelly Huschke (no longer with Jersey Arts) who bent over backwards to include me and make certain everything was accurate.
