About Alfa Art Gallery
The Alfa Art Gallery is a non-profit organization devoted to the discovery, growth, and support of emerging and established artists. Since we opened our doors in 2008, we have worked to achieve this goal through exhibitions and events held at our gallery over the years. Currently the most successful has been our oldest and most prestigious program, the New Brunswick Art Salon. Drawing inspiration from the traditional art salons of the 18th and 19th centuries, we have used these events to connect talented artists with the New Brunswick public. Since the program’s inception in 2010, the New Brunswick Art Salon has helped to enrich the community through its art. We believe that visual art is a universal form of expression that can bridge cultural gaps and provide a forum where diverse perspectives can be shared and appreciated. Our mission is to support emerging and well-established artists by increasing the exposure of their works, providing professional critics, as well as connecting our artists to all local, national, and international communities.
