New Art in Belmar

We had two new shows open at that Boatworks this week.

In the front gallery we have the latest edition of the Winter Solstice Artisan Market.  A wide variety of products created by our artist members, suitable for holiday shopping needs, or for giving gifts to yourself.

Available items include jewelry, candy, dog treats, leather work, ceramics, hand made soaps, baskets, small works, home decorations, and too many other things to mention.  

As items sell, creators have the opportunity to replace them with new items, so make it a habit to stop by and see what is available.  Perhaps lured in by Small Business Saturday and some weekend specials, we had a never ending stream of visitors today, some browsing, and some buying.

And then in the back gallery we have a new exhibition curated by the Arc of Monmouth, a non-profit agency that serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The show includes works by 15 people, a wide variety of subjects, mediums, and styles.  Artist biographies and examples of their works can be seen at their web page.

There will be a Meet the Artists Reception on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, from 5 to 7 pm.

Both exhibitions remain on display during regular gallery hours (Wed to Sat, 1 to 5 pm) through December 22, 2016.  Admission is free.
