Learn, Share, Create at the Jersey Shore

The visual arts, the arts we experience by seeing, form the hub of BelmarArts, around which the other arts and activities are built.  Exhibitions or shows are the product of the visual artists and 8 or 9 exhibitions are mounted within the BelmarArts gallery annually.

Most shows are open to all the visual arts, which include painting, drawing, sculpting, mixed media artists, fabric art and others.  Periodically a show may be restricted to one type of art among the visual arts.  Shows may be juried, others are open to all entries.  Ribbons and/or prizes may be awarded at the discretion of the show director.

The BelmarArts gallery has three rooms.  At times, the primary exhibition will be displayed in the two main rooms, while a second show will be hung in the small gallery space.
