Since its founding almost 40 years ago, the Montclair State University Art Galleries have lived its mission to propogate 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 ninth year, Art Connections has grown from a regional exhibit to one of national scope, encouraging artists in all mediums.
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, 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 Julie Heffernan, Michael Eade, Bisa Washington, Ben Jones, and Cora Cohen, 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.
The George Segal Gallery is located adjacent to the Alexander Kasser Theater. The gallery can also be accessed from the 4th level of the Red Hawk Parking Deck. About the George Segal Gallery The George Segal Gallery is a 7,200 square foot, state-of-the-art facility. Completed in 2006, it houses the permanent collection of works by well-known artist George Segal and other 20th and 21st century artists.

Since its founding almost 40 years ago, the Montclair State 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.
