MARGATE, N.J. -

A new art gallery is bringing an international flair to a South Jersey shore town.

Avra Art Gallery is holding their grand opening Saturday, August 12th, in Margate.

The new gallery will open with an international fine art exhibition that owner Marc Franks says brings the artwork of far off lands, like Greece and Albania, here to South Jersey.

"These artists are from countries that most people probably wouldn't venture to, or they might get a chance a couple times in their life, but we're bringing something fresh, something new, and it is really a cultural experience to see this art up close," said Franks. 

Franks said that in addition to bringing in artists from all over the world, he hopes to have exhibits featuring local artists from South Jersey.
