As part of its successful decade-long New Brunswick Art Salon, Alfa Art Gallery is honored to announce the New Brunswick Art Salon 2018 Photography Exhibition: “A Facility for Photogenia” in which a group of talented photographers from the Tri-State area and beyond will be exhibiting their finest work. Epic sights from monochrome skyscrapers adorning the New York City skyline, to images of a quaint, weathered Asbury Park boardwalk will be available for both curious eyes and discerning collectors. Additionally, photography delving into portraiture and a wide range of other enthralling visual concepts will grace the walls of Alfa Art Gallery.
“A Facility for Photogenia” is a juried exhibition sure to surprise, entertain and enchant. Andrew Darlow, an award-winning artist, author and renowned arts educator who will be this year’s juror, had this to say about the show: “It’s an honor to be asked to choose my favorite prints from the work of so many creative artists. I especially enjoy being ‘virtually transported’ to new and often exotic locations across our incredible planet through the artists’ images.” The exhibition will be open to the public from January 9 through March 3, 2018. Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, January 12, 2018.
Featured Artists: Amy Becker, Barbara Eggermann, Brayden Donnelly, Carl Geisler, Casey Shaw, Chelsey Sinclair, Christine Cuthbertson, Craig Shofed, Gina Petrecca, Hannah Schrenzel, Heidi Sussman, Kedar Wani, Nick Palmieri, Patricia Bender, Patrick Carroll, Peter Aldrich, Steven Yahr, and Thomas Maugham
About Alfa Art Gallery’s Art Salons
Alfa Art Gallery possesses a great deal of reverence for the 18th and 19th century traditional art salons. During this era, art salons were the single greatest annual or biannual melding of the artistic and intellectual minds of their time. For ten years, Alfa has successfully emulated these momentous events in its own unique way by bridging highly esteemed and talented artists with the New Brunswick public. The Winter offers a salon with exhibitions dedicated to photography while Spring hosts oil and mixed media. The Summer brings a collective consisting of all themes and the Fall presents a watercolor and mixed media exhibition. Alfa is dedicated to the discovery, growth, and support of emerging and established artists. We believe that visual art is a universal form of expression which can bridge cultural gaps and provide a forum where diverse perspectives can be shared and appreciated. Established in 2008, Alfa Art Gallery has grown into New Brunswick’s Cultural Hub by exhibiting over five hundred artists and by hosting multidisciplinary community events in honor of the visual arts, music, poetry and dancing.
