About the Exhibition
Every year, Alfa Art Gallery hosts a series of New Brunswick Art Salon (NBAS) exhibitions. This particular Art Salon will only showcase all media pieces. The overall goal of the Art Salon installments is to lessen the divide between the artist and the community, especially in the diverse city of New Brunswick. Alfa Art Gallery is a non-profit organization located at 108 Church Street, in the heart of New Brunswick. The gallery is sponsored by the New Brunswick City Market, through grants given by organizations such as Amboy Bank, Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission, and Magyar Bank. Alfa Art Gallery believes that visual art is the ultimate form of communication, and aims to provide professional criticism and guidance to exhibiting artists. Alfa Art Gallery aims to create a cultural hub for fine painters, sculptors, actors, and writers from New Jersey and beyond.
With regards to our new normal as a nation, Alfa Art Gallery has successfully implemented virtual exhibitions via the Artsteps virtual gallery software and will continue to do so for this exhibition. These virtual and physical displays, although independent of one another, will have their receptions on the same date and be showcased simultaneously throughout the duration of this exhibition. We will also be utilizing the Zoom web communications platform for this virtual reception, as well as for the interviews conducted with the confirmed artists for this show.
