Located at 157A 1st Street (entrance at 1st and Provost), Art150 has the greatest concentration of Friday night events – with opening receptions for several group exhibitions + dozens of open artist studios.


As it was in the early years of the Studio Tour, much of this year’s JCAST is walkable around downtown Jersey City for the Friday night openings.

Beyond Art150’s festivities, there are opening receptions at 313 Gallery, Art House Gallery, Brunswick Center, Balance Salon, Casa Colombo, IMUR Gallery, Majestic Theater, and JCTC where there will be a film premiere and an immersive installation.

Dozens of artisans and makers will have booths at the HDSID’s Handmade Market at Grove Plaza.

Over at Lackawanna, Brand Experience Lab will have an opening reception along with a Creation Station and open painting sessions for attendees.

There is a children’s reception at Living Room from 6-7pm.

For adults, the Bar + Bistro at Canopy Hotel is a great place to end the night – and they will be offering 20% off all food and beverages for JCAST on Friday between 6 and 10PM


The Journal Square area also has an abundance of Friday night opening receptions.  There are two exhibitions at the Drawing Rooms, a show with three artists at Eonta Space, a solo show at the Jersey City History Museum and if you visit the conceptual installation at SMUSH the artist will be offering a tea service throughout the evening.

Sure Things in the Heights has an opening reception for A Room of One’s Own: Illustrations by Carlos Aponte.  Aponte’s illustrations are of his own objects of affection, their histories and the stories attached to them, their way of encapsulating a moment of his being.
