An Open Letter to all Artsbridge Members

A big hello to all our past, present and future members. I hope you all had a great and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
I write to you all to bring attention to volunteer opportunities now available at Artsbridge. I’m reaching out to you all to first express my personal thanks to all volunteers, past and present. Whether event volunteers or Board members, your help makes Artsbridge the successful art organization it has become.
Second, I ask you to be aware that we have specific needs for a Treasurer, Public Relations team leader and Newsletter writer/editor. The incumbents have been in these roles for some time and in some cases, providing double duty. New volunteers are much needed. The Treasurer is a board level position. The others can but don’t have to be.
Position descriptions for each of these critical positions can be reviewed by clicking on links below for more detail and your consideration. We need to fill these very soon to help grow a great arts organization, continue its smooth operation, to provide leadership opportunities to members and to maintain the stability of our organization.


I appeal to you to consider stepping up and become part of our leadership team today. Contact me or any member of the board if you’re interested or would like more information.
Thank you in advance. Have a safe and enjoyable summer. Do Art!

Gary David Fournier, President


All Artsbridge members are invited to attend all NHAL Meetings.

Join 100 other photographers making this project historic

The response from the photography community for this project has been strong and supportive. Approximately 100 photographers have already registered to be part of it. You can, too.

Being part of something bigger than ourselves and having our vision count is deeply satisfying. Together we are documenting the local retail culture and creating a historic archive for future generations. This a group effort.

But! there is only one week left to register and be a project photographer. Our mission is to spend the first three weeks of April photographing locally-owned retail stores in Hunterdon County. We’ll then have an exhibition at the historic Red Mill Museum Village and are working to publish a book of our photos.

The project kicks off in just a few days and you are invited to be part of it. To learn more and to register (if you haven’t already) visit:



Rodney Miller was awarded the the Artsbridge Artist Laurel. On occasion the Board of Directors vote to give the award to someone for their major contributions to the Arts and the Arts Community. Rodney, as we all know, is a long time member of multiple organizations and is a hard worker for all of them. He has been Artsbridge Vice President, Exhibition Chair as well our photographer in residence. Although he is retiring from the Board, he will continue to work on our shows and programs. The lovely stained glass award (note the camera motif) was designed as always by Sun Flower Glass.


2019 is The Hunterdon Art Tour’s 3rd year. Our registration closes on February 15th, the event is May3-5. The event is robust this year.

It would be great to have Artsbridge and/or Artsbridge artists involved. Our goal is to create connections among the arts/artists/arts organizations throughout Hunterdon County and Artsbridge is Hunterdon County institution. Florence Noonan has opened her studio for the past 2 years with THAT.

I’m hoping you could share the event links with Artsbridge’s members through email or a group post…
