The “Mirror to the World” exhibition has been a part of the ongoing success of Alfa’s New Brunswick Art Salon (NBAS) program since 2010. Over the years, the NBAS has not only exhibited works from both established and emerging artists but has also made fruitful connections locally and internationally through its successful programs. The Alfa Art Gallery invites you to join us on a mesmerizing trip through a transparent world of imagination.
This exhibition showcases translucent worlds and new dimensions created from an amalgamation of fragmented imaginations and the physical world. The “Mirror to the World” exhibition features some of the most distinguished and esteemed Tri-State artists in watercolor and mixed media, abstract too figurative. “Mirror to the World” explores the nature of various artistic media, including watercolor, acrylic, ink, rice paper, and much more. In contemplating the artworks on display, viewers are encouraged to dive deep into an ethereal world of their fascination.

Gallery Opening Reception:
Considering our new norms as a country, the reception is a VIP and an invitation-only event which efficiently limits the capacity for the gallery. Alfa’s staff and interns are working to keep all visitors safe and healthy and have implemented safety measures along with the CDC guidelines. These include wearing face masks indoors, maintaining limited capacity, and providing a clean and safe environment.

With the assistance of grants from organizations such as Amboy Bank, Magyar Bank, Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick City Center, Middlesex County Cultural, and Heritage Commission, Bristol Myers Squibb, and Pfizer Inc. Alfa Art is confident that all who come to the 2020 Oil Painting New Brunswick Art Salon will leave with a greater appreciation of the arts and the gallery’s showcasing of a variety of artists.
