Bringing Art to Newark
The Gateway Project, in Newark’s Gateway Center opens their doors to a newly renovated and expanded 3-level 50,000 square foot art hub. Connected to the Newark Penn Station, the location could not be anymore perfect as 30,000 commuters pass through the concourse and the open space gallery daily. The gallery will have a roster of rotating exhibitions, programs and partnerships from mid-level artists that offer an engaging and fruitful experience for all tenants as well as those passing by. Every six weeks the gallery space will rotate their exhibitions allowing opportunities for regional, national and international curators and artists to participate.
Beyond the open gallery space, the Gateway project offers sixty rentable artist studios, a music studio, an artist residency program, and a gallery space. The Gateway Project is also cultivating bi-monthly open studio events, and programs for artists to interface with visiting critics, curators, and collectors.
Behind The Gateway Project is of Rebecca Jampol of Solo(s) Project House, NJ and Jasmine Wahi who worked in Project For Empty Space, NY. Together, these two ladies organized and facilitated The Gateway Project. “We are thrilled to be expanding opportunities for artists and creative businesses not only at a local level, but by opening more doors with connections nationally and internationally as well,” said Rebecca Jampol, co-director of The Gateway Project. “The Gateway Project will be a resourceful arts complex for the City of Newark, comparable to that which one would find in New York City.”
