The Newark Arts Alliance is throwing a food truck party in our parking lot on Friday, Aug. 21, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and everyone is invited. The full fleet of Rolling Revolution food and specialty trucks will be in Market East Plaza on Main Street in Newark, including Angelo’s Curbside Café, The Brunch Box, Cajun-Sno, I Don’t Give a Fork, Java Puppy, Kapow Food Truck, Koi on the Go, Mama Mia Food Truck, Mojo Loco, Passionista Fashion Truck, The Plum Pit Food Truck, and Wildwich, to offer a great variety of food, drinks, and more.

The Newark Arts Alliance will be selling beer and wine in our gallery, with proceeds going to support the organization. Outside, there will be an art project for all ages, face-painting by Dori Fostok of Party Business, and a silk-scarf painting demonstration by local artist Carol Huber. In addition, the NAA’s new neighbor, Audio Works, will provide music. Guests will be able to check out the Newark Arts Alliance’s Gallery Shop and the current exhibition, and also visit other excellent shops in the plaza, including Audio Works and Captain Blue Hen Comics. This event is free and open to the public, so join us for a fun night while it’s still summertime.

Guests may park in Market East Plaza and across the street at Fulton Bank and the Law Offices of Vance A. Funk. Guests may also park nearby and walk to Market East Plaza.

The Newark Arts Alliance’s current exhibition is “Splash of Blue,” on view through Aug. 29. This show features work that incorporates the color blue. The Newark Arts Alliance received over 60 submissions for “Splash of Blue,” which were then juried down to approximately 35 works. The juror, Julie Chen described the show as follows: “There are hard urban tones, mysterious forests, whimsical sculpture, zen-like pottery, and a soft, tender, watery quality found in many of the pieces.”
