Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s “Art on the Avenue” art festival, Commissioner Steven L. Rogers and the Department of Public Affairs is pleased to announce plans to sponsor the second annual festival this coming fall. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, October 5 from 9am to 1pm on the grounds of the Nutley Free Public Library.
The festival will once again feature local artists of various disciplines such as photography, painting, sketch and sculpture. Artists who contact the Department of Public Affairs will be directed to complete a registration form for the October5th event. Although the deadline for registration is September 20th, early registration is encouraged as space is limited. The event is free of charge to register. Artists will have the unique opportunity to display their work in Nutley’s downtown area with the option to sell to the public.
“Last years ‘Art on the Avenue’ was an outstanding event for the both artists and the Township,” commented Commissioner Rogers. “It was inspiring to see our community join together and support the many local artists that participated.”
