Press release from Sickles Market
As sure a signifier of fall as colorful gourds and plump pumpkins, the annual Artists Weekend at Sickles Market brings together a group of the community’s most creative neighbors in an unusual but artist-friendly environment: the tropical greenhouse at the Little Silver landmark. Scheduled for the hours of 11 am to 3 pm on Saturday, September 20 and Sunday, September 21, the highly anticipated event welcomes the return of past participants — and invites locally based artists in a variety of media to take part for the first time.
Jennifer Lukowiak demonstrates the potter’s craft during last year’s Artists Weekend at Sickles Market, to which she and 19 other creators return this weekend.
Art happens, as it’s wont to do, often in the most unlikely of places and any number of art aficionados can tell you that it doesn’t require a formal gallery setting to showcase some pretty awesome stuff. If you’re “art and about” the greater Green this weekend, you’re just as likely to encounter this awesomeness at a gourmet market and garden center or, in Friday evening’s instance, at two of Red Bank’s most dynamic hair salons.
Last we looked in on Glen Goldbaum, the superstar Manhattan stylist turned catalyst for a creative new vision on Red Bank’s West Side was hosting an event branded as Bewitched, a “magical evening of fantasy, hair, art and more that transformed his two neighboring Bridge Avenue salons (Glen Goldbaum 72 and Lambs & Wolves Den of Beauty) into an environment populated by winged fantasy characters, live mannequins and guest conceptualizers from Asbury Park’s Cookman Avenue “Arts Bloc.”
