Rowan University Art Gallery is proud to announce that it will partner with the New Jersey State Council on the Arts to present the next New Jersey Arts Annual for Fine Art, and will host the yearly exhibition opening in April 2018.

The New Jersey Arts Annual series is a program of the State Arts Council, carried out in partnership with major arts organizations around the state. The unique series of exhibitions highlights the work of New Jersey visual artists working in the areas of fine arts and crafts. One exhibition takes place each year in either fine arts or crafts, in altering sequence, and featuring artists living or working in New Jersey.


All artists living or working in the state of New Jersey are eligible to apply. There is no application fee.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Monday, January 29, 2018
EXHIBITION DATES: April 28 – July 28, 2018


The 2018 New Jersey Arts Annual in Fine Art at Rowan University Art Gallery will highlight artists exploring multiple environmental themes. In contemporary art practices artists investigate the relationship of content and medium to convey meaning in their work. For some artists navigating these elements is motivated by content and resolved by medium.

The exhibition “Navigating Elements” will focus a lens on the artistic play with content and medium around environmental themes. All environmental themes will be considered and can be either image driven or issues driven. Topics can include, but not limited to: natural habitats, ecosystems, agriculture, species and biodiversity, renewable resources, recycling, waste and waste management, social practice, climate justice, climate change, and climate policies.
