Annmarie After Hours Opening Reception - Friday, June 20, 6-9pm

Art Blooms Gala Reception - Friday, July 18, 7-10pm - ticketed affair

Art Blooms Exhibit - Sat & Sun, July 19 & 20, 10am-5pm both days - FREE

This exhibit is concerned with the discoveries that artists make at the seaside.  How do the sounds, tides, colors, and textures inspire artistic expression?   How does the sea affect the content, mood, and execution of works of art?  How do artists incorporate these experiences - and even the objects they find at the beach - into their art?  Works of art that explore these and other complementary issues, will be included in the show with a goal of creating a rich and textured exploration of our relationship to the seaside.
