Current Call for Entries

New Jersey Emerging Artists

The Monmouth Museum is committed to providing opportunities for New Jersey artists. New Jersey Emerging Artists started in 2007 to give a platform to local artists who have yet to exhibit their work in a solo-show and create a nurturing environment to develop their careers. We have worked with over 70 local artists since the program’s inception and it has become a popular staple at our museum.

Each New Jersey Emerging Artists series consists of six monthly solo exhibitions where artists are given a platform to exhibit their work, discuss their process in a gallery talk, and are guided through the stages of a solo exhibition including the installation of the show. Artists are also provided promotional material and an opening reception by the museum.


Upcoming Call for Entries

Several times throughout the year the Museum will announce Calls for Entries here on this page that will enable artists to submit works for consideration for both group and solo exhibitions in our Galleries. So be sure to like us on Facebook and Twitter @MonmouthMuseum and follow Museum News on the home page to keep up to date on exhibition opportunities.
