The Alfa Art Gallery welcomes everyone to the Ceremony for the New Brunswick Art Salon 2017 Award Winners, judged by Rocco Scary. This event will take place on March 9, 2018 and will announce first, second, and third place award winners as well as all honorable mentions.
The New Brunswick Art Salons’ main aim is to build relationships and connections between local artists and the community. Talented artists from diverse backgrounds have been drawn into these exhibitions for the past eight years.
The New Brunswick Art Salons consists of four unique showings. The New Brunswick Art Salon: Photography Exhibition was held on February – March. This exhibition was featuring nine artists from the Raritan Photographic Society, New Jersey’s, oldest photography club, founded in 1929. They worked through a spectrum of styles from photo-realism to abstractions. The “Introspective Concepts of Reality” was a group exhibition hosted on May – June and exclusively showcased thirteen artists who could bring their awareness and artistic outlook to Alfa’s audience and the greater New Brunswick area. This exhibition focused on developing an opportunity to connect cultural gaps and explore diverse perspectives within the community with the use of mixed media. On June – July, the “Summer Collective” exhibition featured fine art from nine artists specializing in all media. On November – December Alfa hosted “The DNA of Form: Watercolor and Mixed Media” which featured ten local and international artists who specialized in the use of water color, gel, charcoal, oil pastels and more.
The Alfa Art Gallery was delighted to have Rocco Scary as a judge of the New Brunswick Art Salon 2017 exhibitions. An active multi-disciplinary artist by himself, Rocco Scary always brings exceptional perspective to the NBAS 2017 exhibitions. Rocco Scary is also an accomplished denizen of the art world accruing multiple awards and accolades from the New Jersey State Arts Council Fellowship to the Essex County Arts Council.
