Executive Director

Mar 2, 2019

Application Deadline:  April 1, 2019

Description

Frontline Arts (FA) is a 45-year-old non-profit arts organization with a mission to connect and build communities through socially engaging arts practices rooted in papermaking and printmaking. FA’s flagship program is our nationally recognized veterans’ papermaking program, Frontline Paper. Through a transformational process of Deconstruction, Reclamation, and Communication, our veteran artist instructors teach both veterans and non-veteran communities how to create handmade paper from military uniforms. The unique papers become a platform for further artmaking expression, connecting veterans to each other, while also connecting veterans to non-veterans and deepening the discourse around the veteran experience. Other programs include mobile print & papermaking projects with communities, adult education classes in non-toxic and less-toxic printmaking, papermaking, and book arts, a wide variety of printmaking studio services for artists and the public, and a third floor gallery, showcasing rotating solo and group shows focused on the fine arts of printmaking, papermaking, and book arts as well as socially engaging thematic exhibitions with national open calls. Our fully equipped print and papermaking studios are located in a former lumber yard building, in suburban Central New Jersey.
