Welcome to INSPIRED MINDS Young Artist Exhibition 2020!

Providing opportunities for emerging artists was a passion of The Herb & Milly Iris Gallery’s benefactor, Milly Iris. Coupling those opportunities with arts education is at the core of SOPAC’s mission.

INSPIRED MINDS is a celebration of young artists in the region. The program provides an opportunity for Essex County high school students to undergo a full professional gallery experience; from application through exhibition, and possible sale of their art.      

This program is managed by Linda Beard, SOPAC Director of Arts Education Community Engagement.  For questions, please contact Ms. Beard at (973) 382-1035 or
