NJ Arts Association : Member Show

NJ Art Association was originally founded on Sept. 18, 1940 as the Millburn-Short Hills Arts Center (MSHAC), a nonprofit, supportive community organization with simple but important purposes:

  • encourage and promote art education and appreciation
  • commend the talent and work of members, and other individuals and arts groups
  • offer opportunities for growth in the arts and an enthusiastic exchange of ideas
  • promote the development of local art talent
  • sponsor art programs by highly qualified presenters for our members and the community

Most NJ Art Association members are visual artists — amateurs and professionals and whatever is in between — who share those goals and a love of art. In addition to mounting their own exhibitions and demonstrations, the center’s members join together several times a year to show their work in such venues as the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn and the Mayo Center for the Performing Arts in Morristown as well as libraries, hospitals, community centers and corporate offices.
