NJPAC 2023-2024 Exhibition Dates and Deadlines

For questions or more information, email:

The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) is a professional art gallery that the public, students, and their families can visit year-long. AENJ partners with NJPAC to provide gallery space for select students of AENJ members to show their work at NJPAC. Approximately thirty artworks are prominently displayed in the gallery at the entrance of the Victoria Theater. Works can also be seen through NJPAC-AENJ’s virtual gallery.

Please see below for the upcoming submission deadlines, installation, and reception dates.

Teachers must be current AENJ members to enter students’ works at these exhibitions. Contact or join through the website.

Volunteers are needed for each installation and to assist with the receptions, including creating the program, printing the certificates, taking photographs, and congratulating the hard-working artists.

Please contact for volunteering opportunities.

  • Advocacy/Outreach Chair: Danielle Fleming
  • NJPAC: Mira Septimus

Please note: For the NJPAC Fall-Winder Exhibition, your students’ artwork will also be displayed at our NJEA Convention Gallery, near the AENJ Booth.

We offer two (2) ways to drop off the artwork:

You can bring the work to the AENJ Conference on Oct. 30-31, 2023 to drop off at the Advocacy table.
Remember to prepare the AENJ Back Label and attach it to each submitted artwork. Please DO NOT forget to complete and attach this label. Doing so may increase the chances of losing the artwork because there are no identifiable markers and our conference volunteers are wearing many hats.
