Enjoy “Summer Mode” with These New Works!
In partnership with the Belmont Art Association
The New Works exhibition of the Belmont Art Association (BAA) offers an opportunity to see the recent works of artists—both amateur and professional—who live and work in our community. Showcasing work by BAA members, the exhibit includes work in a wide variety of media from painting, drawing, printmaking and collage, to sculpture, ceramics, textiles, and photography.
Founded in 2013, the Belmont Art Association’s mission is to “create a community of and for Belmont-based visual artists by sharing information and resources and creating opportunities to display their work.” For more information about the organization visit their website.
