The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey announces a new opportunity for local artists to show and sell their work. The event will be held in conjunction with the Art Center’s annual Open House at 68 Elm Street, Summit, NJ.

Last year’s Open House event drew 600+ people from Summit and beyond. The Art Center’s audience includes art lovers who collect a variety of artwork. Art Center director Melanie Cohn says, “We are very excited about this new opportunity that brings art makers and art lovers together. Holding the sale in connection with our Open House adds a fun element for people who want to be able to see, make and buy art all in one place and fulfills our vision to create a community of artists and art enthusiasts.”

There are two types of spaces available for artists to sell their work. The options are a fence space that includes a 10 ft wide by 8 ft high fence section. The second option is a 10 ft square freestanding space that can accommodate one 8 ft table or a 10 ft by 10 ft open-sided tent (supplied by the artist.)

Space for the Fence Show at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey is available on a first come, first serve basis.
