Since its founding in 1969, the Montclair State University Art Galleries has lived its mission to propagate culture and art through interpretive modern and contemporary art exhibitions and the presentation of related events using its collection as well as local, statewide, and international sources.

Art Connections is the annual fund-raising event for the George Segal Gallery, the crown jewel of the Montclair State Art Galleries. Now in its thirteenth year, it has grown from a regional exhibit to one of national scope.

We are inviting artists to apply to this exhibit, which offers an excellent opportunity for exposure and sales in a venue that is widely supported by Montclair State University’s alumni and gallery patrons, and the area’s many collectors, curators and art dealers.

Past exhibits have included works by many noted artists: ceramist Toshiko Takaeshu, painters Will Barnet, Julie Heffernan, Emma Amos , Michael Eade and Philip Pearlstein, and sculptors Willie Cole, Chakaia Booker and Tom Nussbaum.
Proceeds from this event support exhibitions at the George Segal Gallery and care of the University’s permanent collection.

We look forward to a successful event.
