Opening a Gallery in Bayonne, NJ – The Bridge Art Gallery

The day has come! Months after our first exhibition “Expressive Creative Soul” held at Bee’s Art Studio in Bayonne, New Jersey. We’re opening our own gallery to be able to expand on our vision of showcasing visual artist.  We were blessed to have an article about our grand opening featured in the Bayonne Community Newspaper, below is an excerpt from the article…

Cheryl and Christopher Mack are putting finishing touches on The Bridge Art Gallery before its grand opening on Saturday, September 24, from noon to 6. It will showcase artists from Bayonne, Montclair, and Atlanta. At 199 Broadway in the heart of the burgeoning art community of Bergen Point, the gallery space was used previously by Bayonne’s late, famed Elvis impersonator, Eddie O’Rourke, for music lessons.

They’re naming their gallery after the Bayonne Bridge, both for the neighborhood’s proximity to the bridge, but also because of the symbolism of the bridge. “Art can be a bridge in a community,” said Cheryl. “We want to be that bridge for people who live outside of Bayonne who have never been here, to bring them in and show them how wonderful Bayonne is.”
