We're starting this blog to shine a light on, promote and create a connection between Jersey City and Newark visual artists and the current gallery scene.
We chose the name Nieuw Art Blog because it calls upon both the history of Dutch settlement in our area, as well as the longevity of our Jersey City contemporary cultural community beginning in the 1970's when artists pioneered this area.
We reached out to local artists to write reviews of select exhibitions. At this point, this blog, like many others, is a volunteer effort. If you are interested in being considered as an artist-writer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org subject: Nieuw Art Blog, and include a writing sample. Thank you.
