HACKENSACK, N.J. -- ArtsBergen is seeking visual artists for the CAT Walk Art Exhibition -- and the submission deadline is Wednesday, May 11.

"CAT" is the Creative Arts Team of the Hackensack Main Street Alliance. The group is seeking adult visual artists who do drawing, mixed media, painting and printmaking to display their work at this outdoor exhibition in Hackensack. This event will celebrate local and regional artists. Demarest Place, the "Artwalk" in Hackensack, will come to life with displays of art, art demos and live music.

Each artist will be given a 6-by-6 space along Demarest Place: no space fees apply. The work must be wall-mountable and family appropriate.

Artists will be selected based on creativity and artistic merit by a panel of artists on the CAT. Applicants should electronically submit 5-10 portfolio items -- indicating artist name, medium, and size -- by email theartisticgiraffe@gmail.com. All work must be original. Twenty-four artists will be selected.

The art show is on Saturday, June 4, from 12-5 p.m., at Demarest Place and Main Street, in Hackensack. The rain date is Sunday, June 5.

Contact Stephanie O'Connor at theartisticgiraffe@gmail.com with questions.

The exhibition is produced by the Hackensack CAT and the Main Street Business Alliance. ArtsBergen, an initiative of the Northern NJ Community Foundation, is an emerging arts alliance in Bergen County. ArtsBergen's mission is to energize and unify artists and arts organizations and connect the Bergen County community to the arts.
