BELMAR, NJ — Belmar Arts Center is looking to bring in 2019 with a laugh or two.

“Laughing Out Loud: The Humor Show” is a member-only exhibit “celebrating the things, events, and people that make us smile in joy or laugh out loud,” according to the call for art for the curated show, which will run from January 9 through January 30. “From a child’s sheer delight eating ice cream on a hot summer’s day to a classic slapstick movie or a silly pet trick, we will share through our art the special lighthearted moments that can make life so delightful.”

At the January 12 opening reception of the salon-style show, to be held from 5 to 7  p.m., artists will have the opportunity to describe the thoughts and feelings behind their works — “and bring a smile to our faces in the process.”
