The Belmont Gallery of Art is Back!

Like so many other art galleries and arts organizations, the BGA was sadly forced to close in March (2020) due to the COVD-19 pandemic. After just opening to the public, our spring ARTFUL NATURE exhibit shifted by default–and a bit of a learning curve–to the gallery’s social media outlets under the watchful eye of gallery co-director Adine Storer (with help from the BMC’s news director Frederique Rigoulot).

And while not the same as seeing art in person, we’re pleased to say that promoting the BGA’s exhibits on line through both art images and video has been a success–with lots of positive feedback–and a number of sales as well. A big thank you to BGA artists and the public’s ongoing support of the gallery during these challenging times. And please stay safe and healthy.

* * * * * *

At a time when life on our beautiful planet is in imminent danger, over 40 artists are coming together to raise their voices for the home we share with all living things.  

Art speaks beyond words. It invites empathy and hope–and it can help us live up to our humanity by doing our part. 

Shared Habitat Earth (SHE) suggests cross species respect, intercultural solidarity, and a shared sense of responsibility. It celebrates the beauty of nature and exposes the conflicted relationship between humans and their “environment”. 

Through painting, photography, sculpture and fiber art, the artists of this exhibition dramatize the tension between what humanity has enjoyed for thousands of years, and what will be left if we don’t act now. 

From April 15 to June 30, Shared Habitat Earth will be shown at 4 locations in the larger Boston area.
