Metaphors Exhibition

Today was the opening reception for the Belmar Arts Council's first ever exhibition devoted to abstract art. The exhibition, called Metaphors, also benefits the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in Shrewsbury, which receives a percentage of all entry fees and sales. A check for the first installment of that was presented to Willow Caffrey. Well over 150 people came to the reception, which included plenty of refreshments and live music. As part of the afternoon, those in attendance could vote for favorite pieces among the 39 works on display. Those awards went to (from top to bottom) Alison Bowie (for her sculpture Fireball), Doris Lenz (for her collage Imagination), and Ana P. Rodriguez (for her photo I'm Dreaming). The exhibition remains up through July 31st.
