About Newark Arts Alliance

Mission: The mission of the Newark Arts Alliance, a locally supported 501c3 nonprofit organization, is to provide the citizens of greater Newark with the opportunity to explore and display their creativity, as well as to participate in cultural events that build community.

Established in 1993, the Newark Arts Alliance (NAA) is a membership organization dedicated to developing community through the arts. All artwork exhibited in our Terry Foreman Gallery and sold in our Gallery Shop is created exclusively by local artists. We present twelve exhibitions each year, including solo shows, small group shows, and themed exhibitions.

The NAA offers classes for students of all ages and skill levels; holds events dedicated to the visual, literary, and performing arts; and sponsors a popular, full-day arts camp for two weeks each summer. We also offer eight free programs each month for musicians, writers, visual artists, dancers, and fiber artists.

To promote art in our community, the NAA sponsors artistic opportunities for children through our Art to Go projects brought to area community centers, low income housing projects, libraries and community events.

Membership is open to all, artists and supporters of the arts alike. The Newark Arts Alliance is supported through membership, class, and exhibition fees; art sales; space rentals; fundraising events; private donations; and grants. Additional support is received through business sponsorships and donations of goods. Our programs are also sponsored, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on www.DelawareScene.com.
