The mission of the Newark Arts Alliance is to provide the citizens of greater Newark with the opportunity to explore and display their creativity, as well as to participate in cultural events that build community.
Established in 1993, the Newark Arts Alliance (NAA) is a membership organization dedicated to developing community through the arts. All artwork exhibited in our Terry Forman Gallery and sold in our Gallery Shop is created exclusively by local artists. We present twelve exhibitions each year, including solo shows, small-group shows, and themed exhibitions.
The NAA offers classes and free programs in the visual, musical, literary, and hand-crafted arts. We host displays of art at local restaurants and hold fabulous artistically-themed fundraisers several times a year. The NAA also hold a 2-week summer camp - Camp Imagine - that encourages children ages 7-12 to explore their creativity through the arts.
