The opening reception for the Belmont Gallery of Art third biannual all-Belmont juried show, “02478: Memory” featuring the work of 41 local artists, takes place between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the Gallery Hall located on the fourth floor of the Homer Building in the Town Hall complex. All events are free and open to the public.
The artists participating in the show interpreted its theme of “memory” in ways unique to each of them; the pieces in the show depict influences from the personal to the political. A variety of techniques and media were used in creating the works, including painting, printmaking, sculpture and photography.
