Artist Opportunities

Check this page often for opportunities to display your art and engage with other artists, at the Newark Arts Alliance and around our community!

Opportunities at the Newark Arts Alliance

Upcoming Exhibitions
We have several juried, themed exhibitions throughout the year. Any interested artists may submit works to these shows for possible inclusion. The non-refundable submission fees are $5 for NAA Members and $10 for non-members. (These fees are per work.) Maximum submission: 3 works per show.

Gallery Shop
You can drop off work for the Newark Arts Alliance Gallery Shop anytime during regular hours! While the full committee meets the first Monday of the month, the committee is often able to put out new work more often. Please make sure your Newark Arts Alliance Membership is current. The shop only sells works for NAA Members.  If you’re not a Member yet, join today!

Solo & Group Shows
Our Gallery Committee meets annually in October to review proposals for Solo and Group exhibitions. The Gallery Committee then makes selections for the exhibition schedule for the following year. Next deadline: October 22, 2017. Application will be available soon.
