About the Exhibition
Every year, Alfa Art Gallery hosts a series of New Brunswick Art Salon (NBAS) exhibitions. Originally, Alfa only held these salons biannually: once in the fall and again in the spring. In 2012, however, Alfa began a third salon in order to display the artwork of photographers. Each of the three yearly salons is dedicated to a different medium. This particular Art Salon will showcase watercolor and mixed media pieces. The overall goal of all three salons is to lessen the divide between the artist and the community, especially in the diverse city of New Brunswick.
Applicants do not necessarily need to be professional artists: both professional and self-taught artists submissions will be considered. Students and faculty members of Rutgers University and neighboring schools are encouraged to participate. There is no limit to the number of works a given artist can submit.
To enter for consideration, please fill out our “Portfolio Submission Form” and follow the submission instructions listed in it. There is no entry fee.
Watercolor or Mixed Media artwork only
Two professional and one emerging artists from the NBAS Watercolor and Mixed Media exhibition will be awarded the title “Best in Show.”
