Tonight was the opening reception for the new Belmar Stories exhibition at the Boatworks. Several dozen people showed up to see the artwork- paintings, prints, photos, sculptures, collages, and more- all on the topic of people's memories and stories about Belmar, NJ. After people had time to check out all the artwork in the front gallery, everyone assembled in the back room for the debut of the new Belmar Stories film. Our own Gypsy Davey Taylor, videographer and editor, introduced the film, which featured interviews with a variety of past and present Belmar residents, intercut with photos of buildings and people from Belmar's history.
The exhibition will remain on display at the Boatworks during regular gallery hours through August 28th. For more information, go the the BAC website.
