Mission Statement

 

The Art Society of Monmouth County (ASMC) is a non-profit, membership-based all volunteer organization that exists to promote the education and appreciation of the visual arts in Monmouth County, New Jersey.

 

Six meetings are held each year where members can meet with fellow artists and exchange ideas. At these meetings, members benefit from experiencing professional art demonstrations of various media techniques. These meetings are open to the public and are at various locations in Monmouth County (e.g., Middletown Township Public Library; Monmouth Beach Cultural Center; Monmouth County Library Eastern Branch, Shrewsbury NJ.) Please subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates and reminders. 

 

The Society's members participate in exhibitions at various venues in Monmouth County, both juried and non-juried. Its diverse membership displays its talents in all visual arts: oil, acrylic, pastels, drawings, watercolor, photography, sculpture and mixed media. ASMC's purpose is to stimulate the advancement and creativity of the arts in its community.

 

An annual Scholarship Award, issued through the Brookdale Community College Foundation, is provided for a Brookdale student who is enrolled in the Visual Arts Program. 

 

Patrons and enthusiasts of the arts, whether students or adults, novice or professional, are welcome to join the ASMC and participate in its meetings and activities.

 

The Formation of the Society

 

In the early 1950's, the Monmouth Arts Foundation was formed with a membership of approximately 800; it had branches for dance, music, and art. The art branch was known as the Monmouth Arts Gallery. The Monmouth Arts Gallery had approximately 400 members. In 2003, the Foundation decided to disband and award its endowments to a group of members to form another art group with mostly the same members.

Tom Wilczewski, president, spearheaded the new group which included Mae Perillo, Leonia Mroczkowski, Eleanor Silverman, Dorothy Senk, among others; thus, the Art Society of Monmouth County was formed in 2004 as a non-profit. Lucille Dellert became its first president.
