Gimme Shelter Coming Soon

Today was the second day of intake for the upcoming Gimme Shelter exhibition. At the end of the day we had about 90 entries dropped off for the show. Participants started with a piece of shaped plywood (or a free paper template available to students) and the mission to make a statement about the meaning of home. After that it was anything goes, and the artists took the opportunity to explore many concepts and materials.

In addition to being a visually exciting and thought provoking show, it is a benefit for the Affordable Housing Alliance and the BAC Housing Help Project. All of the artwork is for sale, and those not sold during the run of the exhibition will be auctioned off at a future event.

The exhibition will open with a reception on Saturday, March 3, 2012 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. The exhibition will remain on display Wednesday through Saturday, 1 to 5 pm, through March 23, 2012. Admission is free.

Special thanks to Ken Pringle and Kathy Ellis for sponsoring this exhibition. The BAC is seeking sponsors for several upcoming exhibitions and events. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor at any level should contact the Belmar Arts Council.
