ARTIST SERIES

Frontline Arts values our artist members and our larger community of artists and supporters. The ARTIST SERIES offers both members and non-members different ways to connect with other artists in our community. From our popular, long-running Artist 2 Artist monthly meetings, to the new Cafe Culture gatherings, Tech Talks, and Free Demonstrations, there's something for every artist!

Free Demonstrations and the A2A network are open to both members and non-members.

The Cafe Culture and Tech Talk series are a benefit of membership.

ARTIST 2 ARTIST

The Artist 2 Artist Network (aka A2A) developed from a desire to offer a place where artists could come together in an open and encouraging environment. Artists, who work in many varied media, have been meeting since February 2010.  Newcomers are always welcome.

Meetings are scheduled once a month. During meetings, the artists enjoy time with like-minded individuals. Artists share their work, completed or in progress, contribute technical knowledge and offer information about art show participation and viewing opportunities. FA membership, while not required at this time, is strongly encouraged.

In addition to meetings the group has sponsored participation in the Somerville Jazz Festival with an art display, sponsored the screening of “Proceed and Be Bold”, viewed “Who Do you Think You Are” and enjoyed a pot-luck dinner at an artist’s studio. Who knows what will come next. Come and join us and be a part of the future of A2A!

CAFE CULTURE

Come grab a coffee or tea and pastry, and chat with other artists!

Every two months, Frontline Arts will travel to a new cafe in our region for a casual, open discussion with members on a specific artist topic. You can bring information to share or purely come to listen, learn, and engage. We welcome suggestions for future meeting topics of interest.

 

Our February topic is Exhibiting: Where & How Do I Get My Work Shown?

Saturday, February 17th from 10:00am-11:30am

Dragonfly Music & Coffee Cafe

14 E Main Street, Somerville, NJ 08876

 

Please note, there's no simple answer to this question! This has been a requested topic from several members, so we are looking forward to opening up the discussion between participating artists and administrators at our first Cafe Culture get-together.

Please RSVP to FrontlineArtsIntern@gmail.com

These are expected to be small gatherings and everyone is responsible for purchasing their own food and beverages as desired.

Cafe Culture is a benefit of membership.
