The Sussex County Art Society has served artists in Sussex County since 1964. In addition to inviting guest artists to demonstrate in various media at the monthly meetings, members hold informal critiquing sessions to improve members’ painting.

Members also exhibit their artwork in the municipal buildings of Lafayette, Frankford and Hampton townships.

Funding for their demonstrations has been made available in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through the State/County Partnership Block Grant Program, as administered by the Sussex County Arts and Heritage Council.
