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.  Last year over 90 artists participated in the show.  A panel of jurors will help select the "best of the best" from within the Juried section of the show. Awards will be presented during the Meet the Artists Reception on Friday, August 31st. 

Proceeds from the Canterbury Art Show will directly benefit St.George’s-by-the-River and its outreach programs. We are proud of the many outreach programs that serve the needs of our community.  St. George’s makes annual grants to over thirty local agencies including Lunch Break, Family Promise and HABcore.  To find out more about St. George's-by-the River, just click on the photo of the church at the top of the page.

We will be actively marketing the art show and reception throughout New Jersey's art community and our parish of over 400 families. The show is being held within our church complex and we expect a large turnout.  We are giving you an opportunity to purchase tickets in advance for both the show and the reception.  For more information, click the tab for the Show & Reception at the top of the page.
