A community for artists… Artists for the community
ROCKAWAY, NJ, September 01, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Today, Arts On Main, LLC, a new community art studio and gallery located at 141 W Main St, in Rockaway Borough, announced its grand opening with a 3-week art exhibition on the theme of “Birds of a feather”. 2D visual artists from Morris County were encouraged to apply. The gallery caters to both emerging and seasoned artists, and aims to fill a void for opportunities to link art collectors to local artists.
Founder Elle McCarthy describes Arts on Main as “a place for artists to get together and create, and for members of the local community to discover, or re-discover, various visual art forms through interaction with the local artists who create them”. McCarthy also noted that “after the COVID pandemic forced several small local art galleries to close their doors in 2020, there is definitely a void in our local art scene and Arts on Main’s goal is to foster the re-building of those relationships”.
To accomplish her goals, McCarthy uses a couple of formerly vacant offices to create two unique creative spaces, both of which can be visited by appointment:
• A community art studio open to the public where adult artists at all levels can come together for a few hours or a few days to share a creative space, or practice new skills with a mentor.
• A small art gallery with monthly rotating themes to allow the art buying public to discover artists they may not be familiar with, and for the artists to showcase their pieces in person, as opposed to online.
Arts on Main, LLC is a community art studio and gallery located in Rockaway Borough, NJ. Founded in 2022, it aims to re-establish connections between artists and their local community through art exhibitions, and to give members of the community an opportunity to discover the healing power of Art.
