Hope to see you at our next exhibit,
Conversations in Cloth!
The Belmont Gallery of Art invites artists to submit work for its upcoming juried “Family Ties” exhibit, inspired by author Anita Diamant’s “The Boston Girl.” This is the book selected for the Belmont Public Library’s 2016 One Book, One Belmont Town-wide read event.
Diamant’s best-selling novel tells the story of 85-year-old Addie Baum, recounting her life growing up in Boston’s neighborhoods in the early 20th century. The novel touches upon several themes, but family and family relationships are central to the story. How one interprets the theme of “family” is left up to each individual artist.
Artists working in visual arts media including painting, photography, drawing, mixed media, printmaking, collage, flat fiber art, digital media and sculpture may submit up to three (3) pieces for consideration.
For more information about One Book One Belmont, visit their website.
The Boston Girl’s author Anita Diamant will give a talk in Belmont, on April 26 as part of this year’s One Book One Belmont event.

Gallery talks are a unique opportunity for us to experience art on an entirely different level. You won’t want to miss this one. Helen Morse will be sharing her journey: insights, perspectives, and process during this very personal, compelling talk.
The BGA’s current exhibit features more than 50 photographs that capture and reveal Morse’s heart and mind through several decades worth of work.
Helen Morse takes fine arts photographs which are windows into her own heart and mind; some are manipulated, some are not, but all represent her unique view of the world. In recent years Morse has also begun to paint on canvas as well. Her paintings may be separate from her photographic work, but they flow from the same emotional and aesthetic wellspring. Don’t miss this opportunity to look back at 40 years worth of meaningful, beautiful, and sometimes provocative work that has shaped the world of this artist.
The talk has been moved to Jan. 31 because of the impending snowstorm.
The Belmont Gallery of Art invites all visual artists, from Belmont and the region, to propose original solo, joint or group exhibitions for our Gallery. Artist Eligibility All Artists must be at least 18 years of age. No exhibition proposal for a solo exhibition will be accepted, if the artist has had a solo exhibition… [Read More]
