This is an outdoor festival celebrating live music, dance, visual arts and fine crafts of our region.
About the Event:
We encourage emerging artists as well as those with established reputations to participate in this juried show. There is an abundant amount of talent within our town limits, as well as in the county and throughout the state. The purpose of the exhibit is not only to sell art, but to also showcase the talent of local artists, and to enlighten and delight the general public. Prizes will be awarded the day of the show for Best in Show, 2nd place, 3rd place and honorable mention. Judging is the day of the event.
To be considered for the jury process, artists are required to submit two images by email.
All work submitted must be available for sale and must be original work by the artist (limited edition prints by the artist are also acceptable). There are a finite number of spaces available and only the highest quality work will be selected for participation. Submission of work is not a guarantee of acceptance into the show.
About the Juror:

She has been painting most of her life and was formally educated in fine art at Montclair State College and with many renowned watercolorists. She has taught watercolor and oil painting but now concentrates on her own work. Ginny has exhibited in the Rotunda of the House of Representatives office building in Washington, DC and at the Statehouse in Trenton in a summer-long one-artist exhibit. Her work is included in the popular books “To the Shore Once More”, Vol. 1 & 11, the cover and prints in the book “A Cats a Century Tradition” and “LBI Rhapsody.” Ginny has art and illustrations in the magazine Jersey Shore and an article of her work in Shore Life magazine. Her home and studio are on Money Island, TomsRiver.
