Art Exhibits are a highlight of the Marblehead Festival of Arts, to be held this year July 4-7. Visitors flock to Abbot Hall, Unitarian Universalist Church, St. Michael’s Church and Old North Church to view the work of artists from all over Essex County.
Due to extensive renovation to the Old Town House, Photography, one of the most popular exhibits, had to find a temporary new home. For the 2013 Festival, the Photography Exhibit will be presented at Khouri’s Oriental Rugs, 139 Washington Street.
“We are exceptionally grateful to Ralph Khouri, who generously donated his wonderful space to us for this year’s Festival,” said Maggie Smist, Photography Co-chair.
“Working with Gene Arnould to procure a location, Khouri is opening his doors to us to display the superb work of our photographers,” added Tammy Picone Nohelty, co-chair. “We are truly excited to announce thatthe Photography exhibit will be open during regular exhibit hours in a terrific space.”
Another change necessitated by the Old Town House construction is the drop-off location for photography entries. “We are grateful to the United Universalist Church, 28 Mugford Street, for accepting our photography entries,” Smist said.
Drop-off dates for all exhibits are Saturday, May 18 from 9 am until noon and Thursday, May 23 from 6 to 8 pm.
