Artists: Take heart. Sales are being made – all over the County. And, some of you are going out there and finding your own venues. Look around. Is there a restaurant or shop in your neighborhood where you would like to show your work? Walk in, say hi, ask the question. Just to provide encouragement, here’s a short list of who sold what where.
Anthony Weirdeyeone creates acrylic and ink pieces on canvas. At the 10th Avenue Burrito Shop in Belmar, he sold a 20” square piece “In Your Face,” and a pink and blue version of “The Owl,” a 10” square piece. (see left).
Long Branch photographer Joan B. Myers was taking classes at Pure Pilates in Little Silver. She asked the owner if she could hang her work, the owner said yes and Joan sold several prints. She did the same at North Beach Grille and Art Gallery in Long Branch, and also sold work. (She currently has an exhibit at North Beach that will be on view through Feb. 29.)
Lauren McConnell sold a 24″ x 24″ piece at the Frame to Please Gallery in Red Bank. It was from her Betwixt & Between series of photographs where the figure, landscape, and objects of flight are photographed separately and then composited together.
Laurie DiStasio, a jeweler, sold some bracelets, earrings and necklaces at Soul Made, in Point Pleasant.
Andrea Rosenfeld, also a jeweler, sold three pieces (two stone/sterling bracelets and a sterling/stone/leather necklace) and got two special orders (one stone/sterling bracelet and a sterling/copper hammered ring), all from her moderately priced, Hot Rox Jewelry collection at the Christian Brothers Academy, 37th Annual Professional Art Show and Sale, in early February.
