41st Annual Juried Art Exhibition

41st Annual Juried Art Exhibition

January 18, 2020 – March 15, 2020

Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony:

Saturday, January 18th, 2020 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm

Museum Statement:

Since the Annual Juried Art Exhibition was founded by the Monmouth County Arts Council in 1979, the exhibition has been presented at the Monmouth Museum. In 2011 the Monmouth Museum assumed complete sponsorship of the exhibition. The same year, the museum expanded the call for entries to be international. As a result, the Annual Juried Art Exhibition has become a refreshing representation of creative talent from around the world. Alongside local New Jersey artists, the Annual Juried Art Exhibition has included artists from Japan, Russia, Lithuania, Israel, and Germany.

This year, the Monmouth Museum presents the 41st Annual Juried Art Exhibition. Artwork of all media and styles will be featured in our Main Gallery and will be continuing our tradition of showcasing diverse and international art.
