The recently formed Art Circle of Bayonne will have its first exhibit, beginning with an opening reception on Saturday, September 22, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., at the Bayonne Community Museum, 229 Broadway, at 9th Street. That reception will be free and open to the public.

Mayor Mark A. Smith said, “I am looking forward to this exhibit. This is an exciting opportunity for local artists to show their work at the Bayonne Community Museum. I urge our residents to visit the museum and enjoy this first event by the Art Circle of Bayonne.”

After the opening night, the show will run from September 24 through 29. During those days, the show will be open Monday, September 24, through Friday, September 28, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturday, September 29, 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. Admission to the show is free. The art exhibit will not be open on Sundays.

More than fifty artists who belong to the Art Circle of Bayonne will be displaying their work in the show. Bayonne residency is not required for membership in the group. Anyone interested in joining the Art Circle may obtain registration forms at the Ferdez Gallery, 237 Broadway, Bayonne. All participating artists brought their own matted and framed two-dimensional work to the museum on Saturday, September 15. Artists must pick up their work on Sunday, September 30.

The Art Circle is working closely with the Bayonne Department of Municipal Services to ensure that the art show will be a success. Information about the show is available at the Ferdez Gallery, or by calling 201-443-2681.
