Reception: September 23, 2018, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

New Jersey Photographers Forum returns for its annual Colorific show, featuring works from a variety of area photographers.

The New Jersey Photography Forum is a group of professional fine art photography exhibitors that was started in 1995 by Nancy J. Ori of Berkeley Heights, and Michael Creem of Summit, as an opportunity for photographers to gather and talk about their work and exhibition opportunities within the fine art community.

The group has grown over the years to become the largest and most recognized group of fine art exhibiting photographers in the state. The membership comes from all areas of the state and as a group they have tremendous variety in style and use a wide array of photographic techniques. There are several recurring themes in their work, such as: Nature, Environment, Architecture, People, Abstracts and Culture.

About The Art Upstairs Gallery:

The Art Upstairs Gallery, located in the balcony lobby of MPAC, showcases visual artists from a variety of disciplines, including watercolor, oils, photography, sculpture and more. Each year, the works of over 200 artists are showcased in group exhibits. Each exhibit hangs from six to eight weeks. Groups that have been showcased include the Essex Watercolor Club, New Jersey Photography Forum, Millburn-Short Hills Art Center and more.

The gallery provides a unique opportunity to marry the visual and performing arts, and to provide exposure to these artists to an audience that may not normally frequent an art gallery.

Artwork is available for purchase. The Gallery is open two hours prior to showtime and by appointment. For more information, please contact Charles Miller at

The Art Upstairs Gallery is a gift of the John and Margaret Post Foundation.
