Gallery Aferro is a platform for the exchange of ideas in service of advancing human dignity and beauty, with a focus on visual arts as the vehicle, proudly located in Newark, NJ.
What We Do
Gallery Aferro hosts several public exhibitions spaces amongst the first 2 floors of 73 Market Street, Newark NJ. The first floor is primarily occupied by our Main Gallery, an expansive open-floor space designed for large-scale exhibitions, events, film screenings, workshops, artist talks, and more. Our 2nd floor is comprised of several distinct spaces primarily comprised of the Eleta J. Caldwell & Rodney M. Gilbert Memorial Gallery, a large exhibiting space dedicated to two beloved local supporters and advocates for the arts that the Newark community lost in 2017. Gallery Aferro has also hosted a public art program entitled Activate: Market Street, consisting of several refurbished unused store-front displays on Market Street. Although these displays are no longer in regular curatorial rotation, the expansive installation Market Street Perennial is on permanent display across the Washington Street and Market Street block.
