New Art Syndicate is a fiscally sponsored nonprofit collective in Asbury Park, NJ that advocates for different works of art, different conversations & different ways to ally with our communities.

N.A.S. was launched in April 2017 by artists Carrie Ruddick and John Amelchenko after approximately two years of meeting and discussing art as a vehicle for social change. Carrie and John have day jobs and private studio practices in addition to this endeavor, and therefore operate N.A.S. in the fashion of pop-up and short-term events.
