Small Treasures Exhibition

Tonight was the opening reception for the Small Treasures show at the Boatworks. Hundreds of items were on display on walls and in bins and racks, and quite a few people came by to enjoy the art, the refreshments, and live entertainment from our own Gypsy Dave Taylor. The art remains on view and for sale (everything under $75) through the end of December.

On Thursday evening there is an artist roundtable where artists can share information and discuss art issues, starting at 8:00 pm.
On Friday there is a reception at the nearby Central Jersey Bank for an exhibition by BAC artists. The reception is from 2:00 to 5:00 pm, with the work remaining on display during bank business hours through December 4, 2009.
