The Newark Arts Alliance displays art by local artists in monthly exhibits throughout the year in our Exhibition Gallery. Exhibits are a mix of themed shows, which are open to submissions, and solo/group shows.

Please print both sides of the submission form (double-sided preferred)

We encourage community members to submit works of art to our themed exhibitions. Art must be dropped off during the submission dates to be considered (click on an exhibition title for its submission dates and more info). Artists under 18 must have a parent, guardian, or teacher sign their submission form. Works can be for sale or not. For sold works, the NAA will take a 30% commission for NAA members, 40% for non-members, and 20% for member volunteers.

The Exhibition Gallery Committee

The Newark Arts Alliance’s Exhibition Gallery is coordinated by our Exhibition Gallery Committee.  This Committee is comprised of an NAA Board Member and volunteers from our community. The Exhibition Gallery Committee chooses artists from our community to jury the themed exhibitions. You may contact the Exhibition Gallery Committee by sending an email to gallery@newarkartsalliance.org

Please note: Due to the volume of submissions and space considerations, even excellent work is sometimes not accepted. The Committee will not respond to queries on why individual works were not accepted by the jurors, nor why individual solo show applications were not chosen for display.

Jury criteria:

Originality (no kits or copies); well-crafted, skillful execution; and professional presentation. Hanging work must have picture wire securely fastened with hardware to the back of the frame. Central hanging devices (e.g. rings and saw-tooth hangers) do not work with the NAA’s hanging system.
