With the long-awaited spring season underway, Marilyn Schlossbach of Kitschens Hospitality Group and Christine Zilinski of Salon Concrete in Red Bank are marking the spring equinox by announcing their plans to curate an evening of art, hair inspiration, charity and cuisine in support of Thousand Locks Charity Hair Drive.

The April 26 event at Zilinski’s Broad Street salon will feature a closing reception for the “Float/Swim” gallery show featuring Asbury Park-based artist Scott Szegeski, Schlossbach’s husband and business partner in Asbury Park’s Lightly Salted Surf Mercado and several area restaurants, including Pop’s Garage at The Grove West in Shrewsbury.

The 6 pm event will spotlight Szegeski’s surfboard prints in the traditional Japanese Gyotaku style, currently on display at Salon Concrete.  Honoring the season of renewal, Zilinski, recently back from training in Italy, will showcase the international hair color technique Flamboyage with an exhibition of models. Chef Schlossbach’s cuisine, featuring sushi samplings, esquites, New Jersey cheeses and crudité, spring shortbreads and chocolate truffles, will round out the affair.
