Welcome to Hamilton Street Gallery, located in downtown Bound Brook, New Jersey, is an exhibition space for contemporary visual art. We welcome both emerging and established artists residing in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. All media is considered and we encourage work that is new and experimental. There will be 6 or 7 annual group exhibits, some of which will be juried and curated by our gallery staff, and others by guest curators. Shows will run between 6 and 8 weeks. They will be thematic and versatile in nature, ranging from whimsical to the audacious, providing artists with the means to articulate their ideas about the world. Also, we hope to stimulate the creative pulse of the community by conveying an atmosphere in which to experience a focused, personal and enriching engagement with art.
Hamilton Street Gallery welcomes the arrival of spring in celebration of trees, with a juried exhibition featuring over 40 artists. Whether they be tall or dwarf, evergreen or deciduous, pyramidal, pendulous, or palmetto, with fruit, blooms or berries, trees are endlessly vibrant and diverse in purpose, form and beauty. Many things found in nature mirror the characteristics of trees. It’s branching habit, for example, might be reflected in the antlers of a deer, the winding tributaries of a river, or even the network of nerve tissue within the cerebellum. The wonders of nature have mysteriously linked trees to all living things, including humans. However, it has become obvious to many that we have shirked our responsibility, as the effects of global warming expand, infestation and deforestation increase, fires become uncontrollable, and flood waters continue to rise. We may have reached the point where hugs are not enough.
