CLIPPINGS: ARTIST IN THE ROUND

CLIPPINGS_220Artist Ellen Martin in her Red Bank studio on June 11, 2014.

Because she was born on Manhattan’s Museum Mile, “it was perhaps inevitable I become an artist,” says Martin. But it wasn’t until 2008, after years as a marketing director, an artists’ representative and an art consultant that she began painting. Her work may be seen here. (Video by Gerda Liebmann.

Do you agree? And how many locations in Red Bank and elsewhere on the greater Red Bank Green can you identify in the video? The band’s members are Andy Tongren, Dylan Scott, Julian Dimagiba and Steve Patrick.

CLIPPINGS: A RITE OF SPRING IN RED BANK

CLIPPINGS_220Vine video shot outside Prown’s Home Improvements on Monmouth Street in Red Bank on March 23, 2014. Prown’s owner and children’s advocate David Prown tells Clippings he gives away donated sports equipment to Red Bank kids every Sunday in spring. In addition, he says, “people bring me lots of things, from clothes to toys to housewares to find good homes for.” Stuff he doesn’t give away directly gets placed on the curb, and “it ALWAYS goes,” he says. Interested in donating or getting something? Call Prown at 908-902-2203. (Video by Gerda Liebmann. Click to enlarge)
