2014 Belmar Art Walk
The past two days Belmar has seen the latest edition of its annual Art Walk. Saturday was a preview day, with many of the locations having some of the art installed, and yesterday we had more than a few people stop by the Boatworks as part of the walk. Generally the artists and performers weren't present, but there was art to be seen and some of the visitors to last night's Belmar and the Railroad reception reported having found many things to see during the day.
Today was the main event. Another sunny day, so lots of people out walking the streets. Several of our active members were at their locations around town, talking about their art and/or demonstrating their process. BelmarArts member Dana Cohoon has posted a whole bunch of photos on a separate posting on this blog, showing the variety of art and mediums that were on display around town. At the Boatworks our visitors were greeted by our large yellow sentry in the front, who posed for many pictures with people who came by. Over the course of our special Sunday open gallery day, we had over 100 visitors come by as part of the Art Walk, Some were old friends, but there were new faces, too. They got to see art on the walls, a woodcut demonstration, and to enjoy some refreshments.
