On a chilly weekend in mid-February, Sickles Market in Little Silver opened its greenhouse to local artists, giving them a lush, open – and perhaps most importantly, warm  – space to showcase their work.

redbankgreen caught up with some the area’s painters, sculptors and photographers Sunday to get their views on why the yearly event is so important to local artists.
