A LETTER FROM LAWRENCE CAPPIELLO

Founder and Executive Director of ARTS GUILD NEW JERSEY      8/20/16


It is with deep sadness that I must report that ARTS GUILD NEW JERSEY is CLOSED. We have just been notified that our lease for the property that has served as our Art Center for the past 18 years will not be renewed and we have been asked to vacate the building by the 1st of September.

It has been my distinct honor and pleasure to serve as Executive Director of the Arts Guild since 1997. I am extremely proud of the work we have been able to do in serving a wide regional audience with quality Arts Programs: Art Exhibitions, Art Classes for Adults & Children and other forms of Arts Education, Jazz concerts, classical music, Folk Music, Indie Films, Animations, Artists Networking and so much more.

I wish to express my sincere Thanks to our Dedicated Trustees on the Guild Board for their drive, loyalty, and hard work. I wish to offer thanks as well to Douglas Ferrari, my Assistant Director, Cyd Katz Seidel, our Administrative assistant, our great Art Instructors who Skills, talent, and teaching ability made our Art Classes as strong as they have been. And  A Special Thank You to the literally Hundreds of exceptional Fine Artists who were featured in over 130 art exhibits at the Guild since 1999.


And THANKS to YOU ---- The Many, Many visitors, patrons, and supporters who we wished to serve through Quality Art Programs since 1999.

ALL PROGRAMS AT ARTS GUILD NEW JERSEY ARE CANCELLED as of Today. If we are able to secure a new, suitable property and the resources to develop it, we may reopen at a later date. This has not as yet been decided.

This website will stay online until the end of this year to feature our continuing 2016 Artist of the Month program. If you wish to contact me or the Guild, please email us at info@agnj.org.
