Beginning in September, the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey will launch a new series of exhibitions featuring artwork from members and students.

“It's exciting to be able to offer artists the chance to exhibit,” says Melanie Cohn, Executive Director. “The Art Center is known for nurturing New Jersey’s creative community, and this new program—led by a dedicated group of our members—is our newest way of giving talented local artists a well-deserved opportunity while also helping them hone their professional skills.“

The artists who have been selected to exhibit their work are:

  • Jill Crouch (Scotch Plains, NJ)
  • Chris Ernst (New Brunswick, NJ)
  • Lesya Hanenko (Roselle Park, NJ)
  • The Students of Anne Kullaf (above)
