The current show is The Holiday Art Market. It is a show of 11 artists offering fine art and crafts for sale in the Main Gallery for five weeks. There’s gifts of every kind including artist made ornaments. It runs until December 31, 2022.

The Newark Arts Alliance displays work by area artists in monthly exhibits year-round in our Exhibition Gallery. Exhibits are a mix of themed shows, which are open to submissions by all, and solo/group shows.

We encourage community members to submit works of art to our themed exhibitions. Membership is not required and we invite anyone living in a 25 mile radius of Newark, DE. Artists under 18 must have a parent, guardian, or teacher sign their submission form.

CALL FOR SOLO OR GROUP SHOWS FOR 2024

The application deadline for shows in 2023 has passed! Watch for next year’s deadline, October 1, 2023 for shows in 2024. Do you have a body of work that would fill a space and has a consistent theme? The Gallery committee will be seeking proposals for the 2024 exhibition schedule. Individuals or groups of artists may submit a proposal for a show in the Terry Foreman gallery some time in 2024. Groups of artists should have work with a similar theme to create a cohesive show. Strong proposals will have a well thought out theme that is consistent for the body of work and not a sampling of many styles and mediums that an artist has created. Good quality images are also an important part of the proposal so the committee can get a clear idea of the quality of the work. An application fee of $15 for NAA members and $25 for non-members is required for submission. If accepted, an additional fee of $85 is required. Deadline to submit proposals is October 1, 2023, Artists will be notified by November 1, 2023. See guidelines and application form in the buttons above.

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 and it varies from show to show. 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. Matts and glass on 2-D work should be clean and neat. Frames should be in good condition and not show signs of wear. All work should be clearly identified with the artists name, title of work, medium and price or NFS (not for sale).

Exhibition Forms:

We ask that you add identification on the back of each artwork being submitted. You can use our form for this purpose. You can download it here: ARTIST ID TAGS
