Museum Statement: 

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. 
Now, the Monmouth Museum would like to welcome our New Jersey Emerging Artists back for a group show from March 21-May 17, 2020 in the Main Gallery. "R'emerged" will be a celebration of the talent and diverse art of New Jersey Artists.

We look forward to once again working with such talented artists. Below you will find the submission guidelines as well as important dates for drop off, pick up, and the exhibition itself.
