The Gallery at Whitesbog
The Gallery at Whitesbog is a brand new members gallery space to connect local South Jersey artists with Whitesbog Village's history, buildings and landscape. Housed in a 1900-era worker's cottage, the renovated three room, cedar-clad building is a light filled-space. Situated in the historic village, it is one of over 20 buildings that have been renovated by the Whitesbog Preservation Trust including a General Store, Barrel Factory and the home of Elizabeth White, Suningive. Surrounded by cranberry bogs and situated in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, the setting is beautiful and inspiring .
As a gallery member, you would be a part of the team, helping shape the gallery, make decisions and helping with promotion. It will be open to all media: photographers, painters, illustrators, sculptors, etc. and we will have shows connecting with the historical archives of Whitesbog and the physical setting. We are hoping to especially promote local artists, but also invite artists from far and wide for certain shows and talks. We will start with shows and workshops in the gallery, but in the future we are also looking at installation work and projections in the landscape. If you are interested in teaching a workshop or leading a walk, let us know and we can set up a meeting to brainstorm ideas.
