Upcoming Events

Second Sundays at the Newark Museum with Gallery Aferro

Newark Museum through the Eyes of Gallery Aferro Artists
Sunday December 11th 1:30pm, meet in the South Wing Rotunda with Dominique Duroseau

In light of recent events and ongoing issues, Dominique Duroseau will be talking about “Cactus Jack at El Dorado, 1977” by American artist Robert Colescott.

Colescott’s depictions were potent reminders that racism and sexism are deeply embedded in American History. Duroseau’s work bridges these issues which have morphed and are still present.
Join her and find out why themes like race, racism, socio-economic status, and criticizing imperialist white supremacist patriarchal cultures are still relevant fuel to artists.

Arts Coops 101

Hosted by the Community Development Institute
December 10th 5-7pm

Artists and artisans need to do their craft, earn a living, and live their lives. All over the U.S. and the world, cooperatives are helping them to do that. The idea of co-ops is that we can do more together than we can apart, and that sharing allows us all to get what we need. Does shared space, shared purchasing, shared work, shared connections or shared abundance sound enticing? Are you wondering how to make your ideas of a better environment for creative work a reality?
