Since our founding in 1978 by Jean Townsend, the Art Alliance of Monmouth County has evolved into a diverse group of over 300 members representing a vast array of artistic disciplines. The Art Alliance was initially located at what is now known as the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank. It was here where members began holding classes, workshops, and mounting member exhibitions. In 1992, the Art Alliance moved to its present location at 33 Monmouth Street.

Today, we are the premier Central New Jersey showcase organization for traditional and nontraditional art, including sculpture, painting, drawing, fiber, photography, collage, and digital art. Our mission is to promote the advancement of the visual arts and provide exhibition, studio, and classroom space to local artists. New members are always welcome and membership by art lovers is also encouraged.

Our Mission
To promote the advancement of the visual arts, and provide exhibition, studio, and classroom space.

Our Goals
To offer stimulating, unique, thought-provoking exhibitions; to provide a social setting for artists and their friends to meet, discuss, and exchange ideas about art.

Our Artistic Philosophy
We believe that art is valuable and necessary to the cultural life of any community; that people need a place to gather and work together; that skillful artists can learn from novices as well as the other way around; that everyone has something valuable to offer; that seeing one's work displayed for public consumption is an empowering experience; that one's greatest capacity is the ability to be creative; that making art is a way of defining who you are.

Land Acknowledgement
The land upon which the Art Alliance of Monmouth County works to create and support a community of artists is part of the ancestral landwaters of the Lenni-Lenape, called “Lenapehoking.” In particular, our gallery and studio in Red Bank occupy a portion of the territory of a band of Lenape people called the Nave Sincks, who occupied the watershed of the Navesink River and the Raritan Bayshore. The Lenape People lived in harmony with one another upon this territory for thousands of years. During the colonial era and early federal period, many were removed west and north, but some also remain throughout this territory. We acknowledge the Lenni-Lenape as the original people of this land and their continuing relationship with their territory. In our acknowledgment of the continued presence of Lenape people in their homeland, we affirm the aspiration of the great Lenape Chief Tamanend, that there be harmony between the indigenous people of this land and the descendants of the immigrants to this land, “as long as the rivers and creeks flow, and the sun, moon, and stars shine.”
