Gallery Aferro Open Studios for Newark Open Doors

Gallery Aferro’s Open Studios is a great opportunity to experience a cross section of art making in Newark. This Open Studios is especially exciting as it features 6 new artists in residence including our 3rd Sustainable Arts Fellow Mary Valverde, our first ever writer-in-residence Lori Roper, and Masakhane, an organization-in-residence in our Community Book Room.

Additional artworks on display include Dominique Duroseau’s solo exhibition Black Things in White Spaces, Evonne Davis’ solo exhibition No Words, Activate: Market Street 14 featuring Agnes Deja, Jo-El Lopez, and Julie Ann Nagle, Elevator Music 4 featuring John Pugh and much more!

The mission of Gallery Aferro is to bring cultural education and aesthetic engagement with contemporary issues to all people equally, and to create an environment where artists can gather and share physical and intellectual resources. We are working towards an arts community that is available to everyone, without sacrificing standards or quality of experience.
