Everyday People Come to Belmar
Tonight the Boatworks hosted a reception for a photography exhibition in our side gallery. The show features black and white photographs from Michael S. Miller's series Everyday People. The full series includes 40 photographs of everyday people on the street, taken in locations around the world over the past 20 years. This exhibition in Belmar includes 10 selections from that set, all of which were taken in Monmouth county shore towns, fitting well with the Jersey Shore Moments show currently in the front and back galleries.
We saw a steady flow of visitors over the course of the two hour reception.
The artist was present the whole time, answering technical questions about the photographs in the show, and sharing stories about the experiences that went along with collecting the images.
The Everyday People exhibition will be on display during regular gallery hours through August 16th. Admission is free.
