Artscapes : A Celebration of Summer | 2009

Exhibitor's Co-op is a New Jersey based group of artists meeting weekly to critique each other's work and present exhibitions. Founder and leader Barbara Minch says

"My aim was to create a forum to share art ideas and information and to support each others' creative expression. Over the years, Exhibitors' Co-op has evolved into a thriving community of talented individuals, working in their own diverse styles."

Group exhibits are curated throughout the year in New York and New Jersey galleries and museums. Corporate clients, including Nabisco, Johnson and Johnson, ADP, Merrill Lynch and Pfizer have also hosted shows, and some have purchased work for inclusion in their private collections.

Member artists have enjoyed individual success with New York City gallery exhibits, commissions and been accepted into national and international juried shows. Many have won awards and some have been published as book illustrators and in art books.

"The excitement each week comes from sharing in each others success. It may be that someone has made a sale, received an award or is to be featured in a national art magazine. Or it may be that someone has made a breakthrough on a problem piece, or has mastered a new medium."
