“This exhibit takes its title from a less-than-profound observation. We cannot see through, beyond or beneath the surface of things. Hence, in the visible world, home to the visual arts, everything is superficial.
This show is an annual spring tradition at the Belmont Gallery of Art. Come see and celebrate the work of Belmont’s young K-12 artists. A wonderful sampling of work is showcased from the visual arts program and curriculum within the schools. Featured are pieces in a wide variety of media including paintings, ceramics, prints, drawings and three dimensional work.

We are very pleased to show the work of a Belmont High School graduate, Jerry Suh! She came to the U.S. with her family in 2007. With the encouragement and guidance of Belmont High art teacher, Mark Milowksy, Jerry’s art blossomed. She began to find great success, winning a couple of awards and receiving a full scholarship to Savannah College of Art and Design, where she graduated with a BFA in animation in 2015.
During our summer months, works by Richard Hill will be featured in our gallery. It’s always fun to discover the personalities portrayed in his “Collective Iconographies.”
Hill describes his “Collective Iconographies” as assembling and juxtaposing multiple iconic portraits and grouping them together thematically. Images are drawn from a wide array of familiar media – magazine covers, coins, sculpture, photographs, comic books and the like. Each painting seeks to faithfully imitate the style, medium and vocabulary of the original images to ensure that they are readily recognizable.
Visit our gallery and enjoy the humorous, thoughtful, and sometimes quirky juxtapositions in each piece.
