2024 Bergen Arts Amble

On Saturday-6 -July the 24 River Gallery in Bogota, NJ will hold a Kick-off event for the 2024 Creative Bergen Arts Amble. This will start at 1:00p to 7:00p. Rain date is Sunday-7-July. This will be located at 24 River Rd. Bogota, NJ.
  Creative Bergen sponsors 2024 Arts Amble, with events taking place in communities throughout Bergen County. This was a way in showcasing the visual and performing artists, in their studios or a public space. It welcomed visitors from Bergen County, along with Northern New Jersey and New York to discover and support local artists.  The Arts Amble consisted of Artists' studios, galleries, exhibition and performance venues that opened their spaces for public viewing. The objective is to directly support Bergen County's art community by showcasing local art and artists.  Creative Bergen is working in cooperation with Sustainable Jersey, and Bergen County HUB to promote the Artist community in Bergen County.
  Twenty-Four River Gallery Is an alternative space located in a historic paper mill in Bogota NJ. The gallery is run as a collective featuring New Jersey based artists working in graffiti, street art, pop art and traditional styles. The gallery held its opening reception in the Spring of 2024 and will be featured as the opening kickoff location for the 2024 Creative Bergen Arts Amble. Most notably the mill displays an important graffiti tag by the infamous PK KID, the Banksy of NJ, created around twenty years ago. This incognito writer is now displaying his work in the mill. SISCO, a member of TDS crew and Yobe both come from Patterson NJ and represent two generations of graffiti writers. Leon Rainbow works in Trenton NJ. Sticker and wheat paste portrait artist, Ms. Rita Flores and Ms. 
Christine DeFazio both from Bogota. The majority of the artists are New Jersey residents. DJ Smooov is the curator of the Temple of Graffiti, where many famous graffiti writers have painted including Rendawriter who created the 100 artists of hip hop wall last summer.
