About Garden State

Art Weekend

Garden State Art Weekend is a state-wide celebration of art in New Jersey. Our mission is to create an inclusive, once-a-year art weekend for all to enjoy. We are inspired by Upstate Art Weekend in New York and are creating a similar experience for New Jersey visitors and residents.

The festival's central hub, Manufacturers Village Artists, will open over 65 artist studios not typically accessible to the public at Spring Open House. Leading participating institutions include Montclair Art Museum, The Newark Museum of Art, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, and Hunterdon Art Museum. Other highlights include arts organizations, ArtYard (Frenchtown) and Gardenship Art (Kearny), as well as contemporary galleries like Akwaaba Gallery (Newark), IMUR Gallery (Jersey City), and Gold Montclair, and university galleries at Seton Hall University and Stockton University, among numerous other venues. Check out the guide for the latest list of venues.

Connecting Communities Through Art

Help Us Grow

Garden State Art Weekend is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. We are seeking support to make this an annual event to foster the growth of visual arts and culture in New Jersey.


Tax deductible donations go to the administration and marketing of Garden State Art Weekend.


We believe that art has the power to bring people together and create positive change. Through GSAW, we aim to foster a sense of community and showcase the diverse talents of New Jersey's artists. 


Special thanks to Mayor Ted R. Green, East Orange City Council, the Department of Policy, Planning and Development, and the East Orange Health Department for supporting Garden State Art Weekend.
