Gallery @ BMC Reception

This Thursday there will be a reception for Julie Chen Merritt, the artist of the latest BMC gallery exhibit "In Vacuo." This exhibit presents a series of photographs that explores the body in abstracts. It also reflects the artist’s journey to discover the details that are often missed when looking at something as a whole. The reception will take place from 6:30 - 8:00pm at the Belmont Media Center. Please stop in to check out the exhibit and meet the artist. There will be light appetizers and beverages.
