A group exhibit titled Jersey Girls will be on display from February 1 through April 30 at the African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey (AAHMSNJ ) in Newtonville. The museum is located in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Center at 661 Jackson Road, Newtonville. The public is also invited to a reception for the artists on Saturday, February 10 from 2 to 4 p.m.
This is the fourth time the museum has hosted a Jersey Girls exhibit highlighting the work of local artists. The exhibit, organized by AAHMSNJ Founder and President Ralph E. Hunter, Sr., will include artwork by established and emerging artists in the local art community.
Featured artists are Nastassia Davis, Kandice Fields, Jasmine Haines, Heather Deegan Hires, Randi Meekins, Glynnis Reed, Chanelle René, Sydnéi SmithJordan, Simone, and Hazel Levy Washington. Their artwork represents the rich diversity of artistic talent available in our area.
Hunter remarks that, “this is a wonderful opportunity for lovers of art to support the artists as well as the museum with a single purchase of art.” He added that he is eager to welcome old friends and new supporters of the arts to the museum’s Newtonville location.
Admission to the museum and the reception is free. Donations are encouraged.
Newtonville museum hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday and Sunday by appointment.
