It’s Our 10th Anniversary!

That’s right, the Belmont Gallery of Art opened its doors to the public for the very first time in July 2005. In the years that followed, we mounted over 60 unique, compelling, inspirational exhibits showcasing the talents of several hundred local and regional artists from New England and beyond. The BGA has also enlightened and entertained thousands of visitors, and served as an anchor and outlet for Belmont’s own prodigious community of artists. Now, that’s something to celebrate!

To mark this extraordinary milestone, the BGA plans a 10th Anniversary Show — fittingly entitled “Celebrate!” — to honor the work of the many artists who made our first ten years a rousing success. The show will feature one work from each participating artist.
