Every spring and fall, artists from around the nation apply to showcase their unique art and fine crafts at the Rose Squared Shows, which feature ceramics, painting, glass, photography, jewelry, clothing, sculpture, wood and mixed media.

Patrons will also delight in sampling food from specialty vendors and watching artist demonstrations that are glimpses into the magic behind the scenes.

The Rose Squared Art Shows are proud to partner with the Essex County Department of Parks who co-sponsor our shows at Anderson Park (Upper Montclair, NJ), Brookdale Park (Bloomfield/Montclair, NJ) and Verona Park (Verona, NJ). 

The Essex County parks are designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, arguably the nation’s most famous pioneer landscape architect, best known for being the master planner behind New York City’s Central Park. These are perfect gatherings spots for family and friends to explore art while experiencing the foliage of the season or strolling through town.

Admission is always free at the Essex County Park shows.  As many as 110 - 150 artists participate in each of the park shows, which attract between 15,000 to 18,000 visitors apiece. These shows are held rain or shine.

The Rose Squared Celebrate Morristown Art Show is co-sponsor Morris County Art Association (https://www.morriscountyartassoc.org/) on the grounds of the Vail Mansion.
