Record-Breaking Year
Over the years, the Ellarslie Open has become a significant exhibition, drawing on the work of professional artists from the tri-state region and beyond, while encouraging and recognizing emerging artists. Today, the Ellarslie Open serves as mid-Jersey’s premier annual juried exhibit, with acceptance into the show being highly coveted by area artists.  2016 broke all records for submissions and accepted pieces. Two hundred and forty artists, including 60 artists new to the Ellarslie Open,  submitted 472 works for consideration by the juror,  an increase of 50 pieces from 2015.  From these, the juror selected 180 works, putting together a show with a remarkably diverse aesthetic, including styles from abstract expressionism to Delaware Valley impressionist landscapes to painterly detailed style lifes to Cubism and more.
