Jersey Shore Juried Art Show VI Redux

Our current 6th Annual Juried Art show is too enjoyable for just one reception, so today we had a second one. The excuse was that the town of Belmar was hosting its annual ArtWalk, with artist events at many locations around the downtown area. Not quite the crowd we got for the exhibition's main reception, but those who did come today got to enjoy some live music, refreshments, and another viewing of the art itself.

If you haven't come by yet to see it for yourself, the exhibition remains on display through April 30th. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 1 to 5 pm. Admission is free.
