Welcome to the
New Arts Program
Web Site


NAP — 2013-2014 Preview [ View PDF ]


The New Arts Program is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit service organization and museum which presents to the public educational opportunities with individual artists from the literary, performing, and visual arts for two days of one-to-one consultations, plus a collective consultation in a presentation/performance or exhibition setting. Additional programs include apprenticeships, the William Zimmer art reference & video library, NAP print editions, video festival archives, NAP Text(s) Literary Journal and other publications.

Exhibitions and consultations are free of charge. Consultations are by appointment only and may last close to an hour.

Performance/Presentation admission is always free at any location with NAP membership; generally others pay a small admission. Please phone the NAP locations for further event information, updates and consultation appointments. For general information call the NAP office at 610-683-6440 or email at info@napconnection.com.

What Makes the New Arts Program So Cool?

For thirty five years straight the New Arts Program has been bringing cutting-edge visual, performing and literary artists and critics to the Lehigh Valley, Berks County. Included in the Program are performances, dialogues, exhibitions, and most importantly, the consultations an avenue for rural artists and public to meet personally, one-to-one, with today’s most provocative and insightful artists from around the world.

This access to major talents, with the Program as a conduit, cultivates direct dialogue between artists and persons interested in the arts. Contemporary art performances and exhibitions are held in intimate, relaxed professional settings.

Consultations

During their two-day residency at a participating NAP venue, each scheduled artist is available by appointment for private one-to-one consultations with individuals from the community. The consultations are free and limited in number, so everyone who signs up is expected to come prepared with an agenda for their hour-long dialogue.

Presentation/Performances

On the first evening of each residency the artist gives a presentation, which could include works in progress, new works, videotapes, audiotapes and dialogues about their creative process with the audience. The content of these performance/presentations are at the discretion of each artist. The informality of the community space encourages discussion and questions. Performance production is kept to a low-tech minimum so there’s more time to better acquaint the audience and visiting artist with individual creative ideas and insights, it works both ways. Philip Glass said, “It is a nonacademic approach to a nonacademic subject, and it works!”

Exhibitions

Still a hidden gem to many, our NAP Exhibition Space has earned a reputation of excellence that is international. Eleven months out of the year you can come in and see first-rate work by contemporary artists from as far away as Europe and Asia. NAP Exhibition Space, which also houses NAP’s huge arts reference library of periodicals, slides and videos, is located in Kutztown, Pennsylvania (near Route 78) at 173 West Main Street. No admission charge. Regular hours are 11am to 3pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, additional hours are by appointment or by chance.

James Carroll, founder and director of the Program, schedules residencies based primarily on recommendations from the Board of Advisors and past participating artists. Carroll, a long-time artist with a far-reaching understanding of contemporary arts, also uses his own quest for artistic knowledge as a barometer. His involvement in the art world serves as an invaluable asset in obtaining talents of stature. Carroll personally directs each event, making sure NAP aims are targeted.

NBC, CBS, ABC… NAP?

We don’t exactly have our own TV station yet, but NAP does produce two top-notch TV programs that can be seen on cable. James Carroll, NAP Director, produces and hosts the two monthly live one-hour call-in shows. Both programs present artists and topics from the literary, performing and visual arts. Each live show is taped for rebroadcasts.

“New Arts Alive” is a monthly profile of a single guest artist. Live and recorded performances often accompany the dialogue as artists present their work and its process.

On “NAP Connection” a four member panel, which changes with each month’s new topic, engages in a spirited roundtable discussion about the arts.
