Opportunity Description

International Deadline: December 3, 2018 – 2019 marks a celebratory milestone of the Monmouth Museum’s Juried Art Exhibition, its 40th Anniversary. The Museum presents the 40th Annual Juried Art Exhibition from January 12 – March 10, 2019. The Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2019 4 – 6pm.

Founded by the Monmouth County Arts Council in 1979, this annual exhibition has been presented at the Monmouth Museum since its inception. In 2011 the Museum assumed complete sponsorship of this annual exhibition. That year, the Museum opened up the Call for Entries to an international audience. As a result, the Annual Juried Art Exhibition has become a brilliant representation of the creative talent and contemporary art trends across our County and State as well as internationally. Along with providing an excellent opportunity for NJ artists, this exhibition has featured artwork from Japan, Russia, Lithuania, Israel, and Germany over the past few years.

Every year this stellar Main Gallery exhibition features art in a variety of media while embracing both traditional and new artistic ideas. It never fails to demonstrate the wealth of talent within Monmouth County plus offer the community a chance to view artwork from across the globe. We are proud to state the Monmouth Museum’s Annual Juried Art Exhibition can embrace the label of a must see destination exhibition.

As the Monmouth Museum moves into the future, we will continue to build on the excellent reputation of this long-established exhibition and champion its success for many years to come.

For this juried exhibition all visual arts media applications will be considered (drawing, print, painting, mixed media work, photography, sculpture, video, etc.) Open to all artists world-wide age 17 and over. All artwork entered must be the artist’s original creations completed within the last five years, and must not have been presented in past Monmouth Museum exhibitions.
