From 1999 to 2007, Arts Guild New Jersey presented “Celebrity Excellence”, the Merck Juried Union County Art Exhibit. This year we present NEXUS – the Merck 2009 Invitational Exhibit for Union County Artists which includes 15 artists who are either new to us or have only had minimal representation at the Guild during our eleven years of visual arts presentations.

NEXUS: 1. a means of connection: a link or tie. 2. a connected series or group. 3. the core or center.

Neither Union County or Rahway are particularly notable for having a large active population of notable visual artists compared to others. Essex County with many artists in Newark, Montclair, the South Orange / Maplewood area or Hudson County produces a sizable community of noted artists in Jersey City, and the surrounding area.

Yet, as we have found at the Arts Guild New Jersey, there are many extremely gifted visual artist in Union County. This invitational exhibit presents a sampling of the variety and excellent quality of the work of some of these artists.

While our current season of art exhibits will include artists from many states and other countries, it is part of our mission at the Arts Guild New Jersey to give a great deal of our focus to the enormous range of talent available from the artists of our home state. Toward this end, we have recently renamed The Arts Guild of Rahway as, Arts Guild New Jersey to express our very broad following from much of our home state. Our roll as a regional resource for the visual arts, art education and the work we undertake to help provide a unified identity for New Jersey artists and the gifted community they represent.

In NEXUS, we present a group from the 60,000 artists of New Jersey who live or work in our more local area.
