Welcome to the Art Society of Monmouth County

 

Our mission is to promote the arts and encourage creativity.

 

We are an active group of artists and photographers, many with professional designations,

who love learning, enjoy creating art, and pay it forward with

scholarships for college art students.

 

Please join us at our lively and informative meetings with lectures and

demonstrations by professional artists. We meet monthly during the Fall and Spring.

For information on upcoming meetings, please click here

 

As a member, you may participate in any of up to six major Art Exhibitions in 

October, November, January, March, April, and occasionally Summer. All exhibits are judged by professionals who award prizes and recognition ribbons.

 

Our next exhibit in March is our annual "Oldies but Goodies" Art Show. This year we added a category for "original forgeries" called Copy Cats***! If you've copied a famous painting, we'd love to see it. Monetary awards will be given in each of our categories. Details are here.

 

For sponsored exhibits, we provide monetary awards in five categories (3 per category)

to 15 artists. To learn more, click on the tab:

For professional artists with websites, we offer a link on our

Artists and Supporter Links page with a nominal donation as well as

promotion of their shows to our email list.

 

Membership is $30/year for individuals; $40 for families.

Our year starts Sept. 1 and ends August 31. Join us!

 

 Membership Information is available here

 

***Here's a sample of a painting

from the Metropolitan Museum's "Copiest" Program.
