The Monmouth Museum will present two new upcoming exhibitions in the New Year: The 37th Annual Juried Art Exhibition and the Member Miniatures Exhibition at an opening reception on January 16 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the museum, located at 765 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft, at Parking Lot 1 of Brookdale Community College. The opening reception is free to attend. Both exhibitions will run through March 13.
The 37th Annual Juried Art Exhibition is a brilliant representation of the creative talent and contemporary art trends across the nation. This year, the museum is presenting an eclectic mix of artworks in their Main Gallery, ranging in media from painting and sculpture to photography and printmaking. “Once again, we are proud to state the Monmouth Museum’s 37th Annual Juried Art Exhibition can embrace the label of a must see destination exhibition,” said Avis Anderson, executive director of the museum. Nearly 90 pieces have been selected for this exhibition from over 370 submitted.
The Member Miniatures, Big Art in Small Packages Exhibition is being presented for the second year. In appreciation of their Artist Members, the museum will be highlighting their small works (that is, no larger than 12 inches square framed) in a juried exhibition that will be displayed in the Nilson Gallery, and this year, because the enthusiasm continues to be so great, the exhibition will overflow into the Hallway Gallery. The small works are in a variety of media and many are priced very reasonably.
The winners of the exhibitions will be announced at the Opening Reception on Saturday, January 16 at 5:00 p.m. Opportunities to meet and speak with the artists will be available.
On March 11, the Monmouth Museum will present Art Talks and Auction from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Main Gallery of the museum. Artists representing from the two exhibitions and other favorite artists will participate in the Art Talks. Reservations can be made by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 732-224-1993.
