NJ EMERGING ARTIST
2023 Submission Information Coming Soon
The Monmouth Museum is committed to providing opportunities for New Jersey artists. New Jersey Emerging Artists started in 2007 to give a platform to local artists who have yet to exhibit their work in a solo-show and create a nurturing environment to develop their careers. We have worked with over 70 local artists since the program’s inception and it has become a popular staple at our museum.
Each New Jersey Emerging Artists series consists of six monthly solo exhibitions where artists are given a platform to exhibit their work, discuss their process in a gallery talk, and are guided through the stages of a solo exhibition including the installation of the show. Artists are also provided promotional material and an opening reception by the museum.
The focus of the upcoming Emerging Artists Series will be representing the underrepresented in the arts, as it applies to all fields and disciplines. We look to thoughtfully engage a broad group of emerging artists and prioritize diversity in all areas, including gender, age, background, socioeconomic level, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and the special needs community. The focus is to encourage the artistic expression of those artists underrepresented in the art world, at their point of emerging in their next career level as an artist. By creating a platform and providing a voice to these diverse perspectives, the exhibits and their workshops can provide an inclusive and interactive space for artistic exploration and support a collaborative environment for attendees.
The Emerging Artist Series structure leans on an academic rather than a corporate system, implementing peer-reviewed selection processes and committee-based decision making. Our jurors are professional artists, curators, academics and community members with a keen focus on diversity, creativity, and excellence. Each New Jersey Emerging Artists series consists of six monthly solo exhibitions where artists are given a platform to exhibit their work, discuss their process in a gallery talk, and are guided through the stages of a solo exhibition including the installation of the show. Artists are also provided promotional material and an opening reception by the museum.
