Press release from Salon Concrete
For the latest in a series of art and cultural events hosted at Salon Concrete, the downtown Red Bank hair studio teams with artist Mike Ciccotello for a new exhibit entitled “Daydreams.” Comprised of different mediums, acrylic, oil, skateboard pieces, as well as pen and ink, the collection of artworks is a snapshot from the artist’s mind; “a glimpse into his daydreams.”
The opening reception of “Daydreams” will be celebrated on Saturday, November 22 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm at Salon Concrete, 123 Broad Street. Attendees will have the opportunity to view a display of Ciccotello’s work while experiencing a preview of Spring/Summer haircuts and color crafted by Christine Zilinski’s Salon Concrete team. Guests will also enjoy music from DJ Foggy Notion, appetizers and tastings from Hostess Helper and The Cheese Cave. The event is free and open to the public.
Ciccotello is closely aligned with Hometown Heroes, an organization that provides financial support, professional assistance and advocacy to any individual or family who suddenly finds themselves in a crisis. He will be donating 10 percent of all opening reception art sales to the nonprofit, as well as the sales from his Coffee Cup Doodles.
Ciccotello explains that daydreams are often influenced by people or environments and each have the opportunity of producing something fantastic. “When you collaborate on a project, you start with an idea and then it gets fed by another idea, and another idea. Each time that thought has the opportunity of being influenced by its surroundings and becoming something amazing. daydreams are quite the same,” he shares.
