The Belmont Gallery of Art is a beautiful gallery in one of the town buildings in Belmont Center. Curated lovingly and meticulously for years by Nan Rogers, it has attracted a steady number of local and not-so-local artists. Yesterday, Nan began the preparations for the upcoming Small Works Holiday Show & Sale: she figured out where each piece would go and started to hang the art. This morning, another artist, Kimberly Becker, and I joined forces and together we completed the job.
It was a wonderful experience to hang this artwork: I felt exhilarated and inspired. For the next couple of weeks, the gallery will be a treasure chest of art, filled with affordable originals (all priced $200 or less), as well as prints and cards. There are paintings that will take your breath away: oils, pastels, watercolors, graphite (hello Kimberly Becker, Noriko Fox, and Donna Gaspar). The photography is stunning and unique (hello Nancy Reppucci, David Wunsch, and Bet Lee’s photos of Vietnam). The 3-dimensional works range from ceramics to sculptures to fiber art, including adorable “Ragmatag” dolls. There is something for everyone. I’ll bet that you will walk away with a smile on your face and a treasure or two in your hands.
Mark it on your calendar and make time to go: you will be so happy you did!
