About the NJEAA

The New Jersey Equine Artists’ Association (NJEAA) was founded in 1999 with the purpose of promoting Equine Art and Artists in the state of New Jersey. Through exhibiting the state’s finest examples of painting and sculpture depicting the horse in its many forms and occupations, activities, relationships with man through history and in the present, the organization is generating increased interest in the field of equine art among art lovers, horse enthusiasts and the general public.

By providing information, education, networking and additional opportunities for exhibition in New Jersey, the NJEAA strives to serve the Equine Artist, from beginner to professional. In addition, our biennial nationwide shows bring together some of the very best equine artists in this country.

Not only is the horse New Jersey’s state animal, but also one of its major industries. Equine Artists create a well defined presence, and are an additional arm of this industry, an accessible resource with greater visibility
