Noyes Art Garaga opens in Atlantic City

 

The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton College opened in Atlantic City today, with 18 spaces including a gallery, artists’ studios and retail spaces showcasing regional artists and photographers, locally handmade fine crafts, the African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey and the work of Fair Trade artisans from around the world.

The $1.6 million Arts Garage is managed by Stockton’s Noyes Museum of Art, which operates a museum store and a 1,200-square-foot satellite art gallery at the site, on the first floor of The Wave parking garage at Mississippi and Fairmount avenues.

The African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey is the largest tenant, with 2,000 square feet of unique artifacts, including graphics, drawings paintings, advertisements, books, music, films and manuscripts, all depicting African Americans in a historical context.

The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton College totals 16,000 square feet leased by The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. The college has partnered with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) and other groups to help bring to fruition the resort’s Arts and Cultural District, a key part of the Atlantic City Tourism Master Plan.

“Stockton is pleased to play a leadership role in Atlantic City’s continued resurgence,” said President Herman Saatkamp. “The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton College will join our Carnegie Center and Dante Hall Theatre in providing lively cultural events for residents and visitors alike.”


John Palmieri, executive director of the CRDA, which built The Wave at a cost of $30 million, said, “CRDA’s partnership with Noyes/Stockton has created a uniquely creative attraction and yet another reason to visit Atlantic City.”

“The opening of the Arts Garage on the heels of the Atlantic City Ballet in residence at Boardwalk Hall, the Bay-Atlantic Symphony in residence at Dante Hall and the continuation of fine performing arts at Dante Hall, provides an anchor to feed the growth of the Arts within the Tourism District and attract new visitation and potential residents to Atlantic City,” Palmieri said.

The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton College’s mission is to promote education, provide resources for emerging artists, and enrich the community, explained Michael Cagno, executive director of The Noyes. “Because of the Arts Garage, the African American Heritage Museum has its rightful place,” he said, adding that “Stockton College has set the bar for community development.”

The Noyes Arts Garage houses artist studios, galleries, shops, a planned café and a flexible classroom studio, and will host special events throughout the year. The Atlantic Café is expected to open in the near future in the facility, which is also the new home of the Atlantic City Arts Center.

Individual artists work in their studio/shop spaces, each focusing on a different medium including painting, pastels, photography, illustration, found object sculpture, basketry and more.

Visitors are invited to watch the artists at work, ask questions about their creative process, and purchase original artwork, Cagno said. For more information, visit: artsga
