New Jersey Photography Forum 29th International Juried Photography Exhibit

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

Since the year 1994, the New Jersey Photography Forum has grown to be one of the largest groups of exhibition fine art photographers in the New York Area. We have successfully run an annual juried exhibit through the Watching Arts Center since our founding that has developed into one of the most important photography exhibits in the metropolitan area.

What Makes this event different?

At the opening reception there will be a holiday art fair. Additionally, we will be conducting a ZOOM conference on November 18th from 3-5pm (EST) moderated by the curator, Nancy Ori. This is an opportunity to hear from the participating artists and ask any questions you may have regarding their work.
