St. George's-by-the-River, with over a century of history, is a spectacular setting for the fabulous artwork we will be hanging within its walls. The Canterbury Art Show...a Tapestry of the Arts, is a premier local exhibition and art sale. 95 artists have chosen to participate in the juried and non-juried parts of the show. A panel of jurors have selected the "best of the best" from the juried gallery part of the show. Awards will be presented at the Meet the Artists Reception on Thursday, September 1 for Best in Show, Award in Excellence and Honorable Mention.

Proceeds from the Canterbury Art Show will directly benefit St. George’s-by-the-River and its outreach programs. We are proud of the well-organized outreach programs that serve our community. St. George’s makes annual grants to over thirty local agencies including Lunch Break, Family Promise and HABcore, just to name a few. You can learn more about these programs on the Community Outreach page. You can also visit St. George's-by-the-River right now by clicking on the photo of the church at the top of this page.

We are actively marketing the show and receptions to New Jersey's art community and our parish of over 400 families. Since the show is being held within our church complex and we are expecting a large turnout, we are giving you the opportunity to purchase tickets in advance for the daytime shows and the reception. Simply go to the Show and Reception Page for more information about the show and to purchase your tickets now.


*****************************************************************
You won't want to miss these features at the show:  

Artists-at-Work - During the daytime show hours, artists will be painting and drawing on the church premises so that patrons are able to see the creative process in action. Just look for the balloons to find the working artists. Artists who are interested in participating may review eligibility and guidelines in the Artist Prospectus and complete the form in the Show and Receptions page.

Art from Artists - Once again, we are inviting all participating artists to donate artwork which patrons have the opportunity to win. Tickets may be purchased during the show each day and drawings will be held at the end of the reception and each show day.

Art by Teens - This year, we have included our talented teens, ages 13 - 17 in the show.

Architectural Tours - A tour of the impressive art and architecture of St. George’s-by-the-River will be guided by Constance Gryczka. This 30 minute free tour starts from the rear pews of the center aisle (nave) of the Church on Saturday and Sunday at 11:15 and 1:15.
