People’s Open Mic on January 29th
2nd Floor Eleta J. Caldwell and Rodney M. Gilbert
Memorial Gallery @ Gallery Aferro

Every Last Wednesday of the Month
7-9pm @ 73 Market Street

Newark’s longest continuously running open mic takes place on the second floor of Gallery Aferro in the Eleta J. Caldwell and Rodney M. Gilbert Memorial Gallery space. This monthly event welcomes all people and emphasizes inclusivity, love and respect.

Feel free to listen and enjoy from the audience, or participate with your own poetry in front of a supportive, yet passionate crowd.


Change is Good.

“…the moment of change is the only poem.”  – Adrienne Rich

The Gallery Aferro Benefit Art Auction and Party is April 25, 2020.

Gallery Aferro is turning 17!
Come celebrate the future with us at this moment of change.
Save the date, mark it as yours and yours alone, in all caps or with a bright red marker.
Tell a friend or lover or mentor or comrade-in-arms.

The party is moving from June this year.

We want to see you. Don’t we all long to be seen? If you long too for beauty, there will be two floors of artworks up for bid, none of which have ever been offered for sale at Aferro prior to this one spring night.

As well as strong icy cocktails, roving ice cream bar, raffles and prizes galore,
masquing and the wearing of shades indoors at night, and of course, gratuitous art weirdness.

See You There Everybody!
