Live music venue; bar; restaurant; art gallery; place for knitters to drink — or should that be, “a place for drinkers to knit?”

Whatever. Continuing its evolution into a kind of one-stop cultural center, Monmouth Street’s Jamian’s Food and Drink last night kicked off its latest monthlong display of artwork.

The show is dominated by the large abstracts of Red Bank painter Medy Quiroz.

The show, which runs through February 2, was curated by Travis Radcliffe, another Red Bank artist who doubles as a bartender at Jamian’s.
