New Jersey Emerging Artists Series

njea-all-artists-final The Monmouth Museum is committed to present the work of NJ emerging artists through its popular series, The New Jersey Emerging Artists Series, now entering its eighth year. The New Jersey Emerging Artists Series consists of six annual monthly solo exhibitions to showcase the new work of NJ artists who have not previously held one-person exhibitions in our State.

The Nilson Gallery in the Monmouth Museum provides a unique and exciting opportunity for these artists to exhibit their work. Selected artists are guided through the exhibition process, provided promotional materials and give an Artist’s Talk during their exhibition, offering the public insight into their artistic process. All opening receptions & Gallery Talks are free and open to the public.

The artists selected for this Series represent the diversity of talent in the State and demonstrate creativity in a wide variety of media.
