Growing a Vibrant Arts Community
OUR MISSION SINCE 2002
We are passionate about making art accessible and supporting artists’ livelihoods, offering fine, fun and wearable art at a variety of price points and returning 75% of your purchase to our members. In January of 2012, our School of Art opened with four or five class offerings. Today, we offer over fifteen classes with more being added every day. Our mission has expanded to engage people of all ages and abilities in art-making, tapping each person’s innate creativity in the joys of painting, drawing, sculpting…exploring life anew with hands and heart!
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA’S (NJSO) YOUTH PROGRAMS
The Main Avenue Galleria partners regularly with the NJSO in Art Strings — an annual visual and performing arts event to raise funds for the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s extensive music education and community engagement programs. Local artists use unfinished violins as their painting canvas to create pieces inspired by music. Now in its 15th year, the project has featured more than 150 violins and raised more than $150,000. — www.njsymphony.org
