While most of us visit Liberty State Park to take in the incredible views, exercise, or have a picnic, for two weekends this summer visitors can also purchase art. The Affordable Art Show returned to the CRRNJ Terminal at Liberty State Park this past weekend — with two other dates on July 20th and 21st. Works from over 60 artists will be featured at the show, which is produced by Art House Productions. Read on for more about the Affordable Art Show in Jersey City.

The show is put on by Art House Productions, a Jersey City-based non-profit organization dedicated to fostering the performing and visual arts. Andrea McKenna, Gallery Director of Art House Productions, shared that out of the 66 artists, 45 are from Hudson County. “This will be our very first Summer edition of this show. It’s wildly popular when we have it in our space in December and this year will be our 7th annual,” she said. The Show will have food trucks on site: Dosa Spot, Rosie’s Empanadas, and La Caja are signed up so far. Andrea also said, “There will be many art pieces depicting our Lady Liberty and the park itself, in mediums of oil, acrylic, collage, and watercolor. All of the art is no larger than 18″ x 24″. Many pieces are smaller than this, all for easy carryout.”

Frank Hanavan, a local Hoboken artist, is one of the artists participating in the show. Many of us have seen Frank working his magic on the sidewalks, as he is an en plein air artist, capturing street scenes and vignettes of life in and around Hudson County.
