The 2024 Cathedral Arts Festival


The Cathedral Arts Festival is Jersey City’s longest-running art exhibition and celebration of artists and community.  During the festival, the beautiful 160-year-old sanctuary of Jersey City’s beloved Grace Church Van Vorst is transformed into an art gallery featuring dozens of artists from the tri-state area. This year’s formal champagne gala will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2024.


We now reach out to our local art community and beyond to find the artists and work that will carry forward thirty years of creative excellence. Fine art mediums will be considered, including painting, sculpture, photography, multi-media, and drawing. We will consider submissions at a range of prices so that all members of the community can purchase original art of exceptional quality. All work is for sale with 60% of the sale going to the exhibiting artist and 40% to Grace Church.
