Studio Montclair's 3rd Annual "Affair of the Art"


Studio Montclair enthusiastically announces its third annual “Affair of the Art,” to be held on Saturday, November 16 from 7pm to 11pm at Montclair’s brand-new, art-focused MC Hotel located at 690 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, NJ. The event—exemplifying the stature of the arts as a cornerstone of the Montclair community—promises a lively evening of music, dancing, sketches in real time by local artist Ling Chen, and delicious food and drink catered by the MC Hotel. It also features a sale of artwork from Studio Montclair members—over 100 examples of outstanding painting, photography, mixed media, collage, sculpture, printmaking, and art glass, that has been selected by Juror Shannon Bonifas.

Studio Montclair is offering the public the opportunity to purchase artwork from this special sale prior to the November 16 event. Visit our website studiomontclair.org for information, or sales.studiomontclair.org to purchase art.

The “Affair of the Art” is SMI’s biggest and most successful fundraiser, enabling the organization to support its three galleries, multiple programs, and services throughout the calendar year. As the first major community event to be held at the MC hotel, a large and diverse crowd of art lovers, supporters, and collectors is anticipated to attend.

Judy Typaldos and Stephanie Hutton, co-chairs of the event, said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the community together to showcase some of the amazing artistic talent right here in our own backyard. Studio Montclair offers their members many opportunities for exhibiting art, networking, and professional development; it’s a great support system for artists. Our goal as co-chairs is for our guests to learn more about how Studio Montclair can benefit artists as well as our community as a whole. Studio Montclair brings art as a cornerstone to the economic development of the entire Montclair community through presence in their galleries spanning the area.”
