Not exactly a great day to be outdoors at the shore today. Not much rain, but not much sun either, cool and damp. Inside the Boatworks we had a surplus of light, color, and interesting textures. Our second annual youth art show was built around a theme of texture. Exhibition curators Kelly Fogas and Aaron Weber found a wide and interesting variety of textured theme art for this show.
We estimate about 100 were in attendance today, viewing an exhibition spread throughout the whole building. Refreshments included cake provided by Sweet! in Belmar.
Awards were provided by the Order of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh of the Jersey Shore. Three local art teachers received memberships from BelmarArts- Alex DiJiovanni of Neptune, Melissa Numerowski of Toms River Intermediate South, and Karen Waller from Bergen County Technical School. Of course there were also awards for many of the exhibiting artists.
