Dark of Night Reception

Although the work has been up on the walls for a few weeks, tonight was the official reception for our current Dark of Night exhibition, which occupies the back room gallery.

We are estimating that around 60 people came through this evening to see this collection of paintings, drawings, prints, photos, and sculptures with macabre themes.

As part of the season, instead of the usual refreshment table, we had a trick or treat table-  containers with candy bars, cookies, and other small portions of treats.  You could eat them there, or fill a bag to take home, or both.

This exhibition, along with the Art of Recovery on display in the front room gallery, is open to the public through November 6, 2015.  Admission is free.

New Shows for Fall 2015

The Boatworks currently has two new exhibitions on display.  The front room gallery has Art of Recovery, featuring artwork from the members at the Shore House in Long Branch.  More information about the program and the show can be found at the BelmarArts site.

Then continue on to the back room gallery to see Dark of Night, a spooky themed show in time for the Halloween season.

Both shows are currently on display, and there will be a reception on October 10, 2015 from 5 to 7 pm.  The exhibitions continue through November 6th during regular gallery hours.  As always, admission is free.
