RED BANK – The importance of art can be transformative and play an important role in healing a community, and Red Bank needs to recapture its vibrance, especially after the recent devastation Monmouth County suffered from Hurricane Sandy.
Therefore, the Red Bank Holiday Art Walk will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24. The November art walk will be held on National Small Business Day and will bring focus to the many unique small businesses in Red Bank that exhibit original art.
A Gift of Art Is a Gift Of the Heart is this month’s theme. “Original art is a very unique and personal gift idea,” said Robert Langdon of Gallery U. “Many of the venues on Novemberʼs Holiday Art Walk are working hard to showcase quality art that is affordable as the prefect holiday gift.”
Locations on the Red Bank Holiday Art Walk will include traditional art galleries such as the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, Beacon Fine Arts, Frame to Please, Studio 25 and Gallery U, and non-traditional spaces that also exhibit original art. Venues include restaurants and cafes such as Jamian’s Food and Drink; Garmany Department Store; interior design space Amy Manor Interior Design; and places of worship including Gallery 135 at Red Bank Community Church. Over 20 venues will participate in November’s Red Bank Art Walk.
A street map of Red Bank will be made available with participating Art Walk locations highlighted and will also include a listing of “Recommended Places to Dine.” Visitors are encouraged to discover and explore the various venues and businesses throughout Red Bank. An online map will also be made available at http://www.onlyoneredbank.com. A trolley car will be available to take visitors from location to location throughout town.
The art walk is coordinated by representatives from Amy Manor Interior Design, The Art Alliance of Monmouth County, Frame to Please, Gallery 135 at RBCC, Gallery U, Red Bank River Center, and Studio 25, and is made possible through the financial support of participating venues.
