The 2017-2018 year was an exciting one. We held seven meetings with local artists who demonstrated their skills. We also had four major art exhibitions with prizes going to 48 works of art. In addition, we added one more surprise Summer Exhibit at Monmouth Beach Cultural Center for July and August. We are grateful to the Middletown Township Public Library for hosting our recent meetings and exhibitions. A special thank you to all of our supporters and sponsors for helping to support our mission of education and promotion of the arts.
For 2018-2019, we have developed exciting programs and
additional major art exhibits.
We have been invited by Brookdale Community College to have an exhibit in their Visual Arts Gallery in October. Details are posted above and have been emailed to our newsletter subscribers. Please subscribe to our email list in the column to the right.
