This exhibition will be juried by the Exhibition Committee of the RRCA. Prizes to be Announced. Entry fee is $20.00 for 3 images, and $5.00 each additional image. Only 2 details permitted for 3D work. (no more than 3 works may be entered for consideration.)

NJ Arts, History & Tourism Funding in Jeopardy! Your voice of support is needed!

Please Support Levels for Arts, History & Tourism as Specified in Law
Governor Corzine's FY2010 budget proposal indicates levels of state funding for arts, history and tourism below minimum levels stated in legislation that established a dedicated revenue stream to support these industries. Please write your district legislators and ask them to honor the law and vote for a budget that includes, at the very least, the minimum levels of support for arts, history and tourism promotion stated within the law.

Please click on the link below to show your support!
