Belmar Urban Myths Opening Reception

Today we held the opening reception for the new Belmar Urban Myths exhibition at the Boatworks. This show invited artists to explore the idea of the urban myth and local legend and folklore, and to work in almost any medium imaginable. Work in the show included paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, mixed media, short story, and digital video. The videos were shown on both a small monitor in the gallery (above) and on the biggish screen (below) in the back room.

A nice crowd turned up to see this unusual show and to learn legends old and new about the Belmar area. In addition, those who attended had the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece. The voting will remain open through the end of the show, so make sure to come by and make your opinion known.

The exhibition remains on display during gallery hours through August 27th. Admission is free.
