Please join Alfa Art Gallery in commemorating the gallery’s 8th anniversary on May 6th 2016 at 5pm! In the past eight years, Alfa Art Gallery has seen great success in exhibiting and working with over 300 accomplished artists from the community. Our anniversary event will honor these artists for their hard work and achievements.
We are pleased to announce and host the New Brunswick Art Salon (NBAS) 2015 awards which will be presented to artists in the mediums of watercolor and mixed media, as well as oil and mixed media exhibitions. The NBAS was designed to showcase the talents of artists to the New Brunswick community and has been very successful in this endeavor in the last five years. The goal of these salons is to bridge the gap between artists and their communities and to unify the diverse city of New Brunswick through making and appreciating art. The Alfa Art Gallery New Brunswick Art Salon derives its inspiration from the 18th century Parisian art salons that celebrated new advances in academia and the arts.
Alfa Art Gallery is pleased to present Pushing Boundaries: An Exploration of Form and Color. Artists Vesselin Kourtev, Peter Arakawa, Rita Herzfeld, and John Hawaka, have been long-time partners and affiliates of Alfa Art Gallery and are well-established artists in the New Brunswick area. This exhibition features a selection of their paintings, each of them distinct in style and inspiration, but unified in their themes of synthesizing order and chaos, and inspiriting form and color.
We are also delighted to present our 2015 annual catalog. This carefully curated catalog promotes our exhibiting artists and provides an extensive over view of our exhibitions from the past year.
