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.


Monthly meetings are held 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 the Middletown Township Public Library, 55 New Monmouth Road. 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.
