Here are a few photos from the opening reception of the annual juried show, "Portals" at the Belleville Library. The artworks, juried by Michael Amar and Stephen Snider, were beautifully hung and displayed by curator Susan Holland. For a small town, Belleville is developing a vibrant artscene.
Some of the very young took the opportunity to 'dress up', complete with feather and sparkly shawl.
The Belleville Art Association members were well represented, with 31 artists represented out of a total of 56 artists. All 4 awards went to BAA members also. Congratulations! This organization of 117 members is growing in numbers and in the quality of work produced.
Prince Edward County metalworker, Bruce Milan is showing his metal sculptures, some with mixed media, in gallery 1.
The show will hang from June 4 to July 16, 2009.
