What better time than Valentine’s weekend to show your love for art.Why not join me at events on Saturday and Sunday that celebrate art, artisans and the art of sandwich making.

Take a stroll through the Sickles Market greenhouse in Little Silver, where you’ll find artists creating and displaying their work at Sickles’ Annual Art Show. 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. I have several blank walls in my office and would love to showcase a gorgeous landscape of our two river area. Perhaps I’ll find one among the paintings for sale.
While you’re perusing the artwork, take time for lunch from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at the deli. I hear Red Bank Regional students are creating their own versions of the Dagwood sandwich. Buy a sub, sandwich or wrap and support the Red Bank Regional Education Foundation. I’ve got my own version: eggplant, asparagus, melted Provolone cheese, roasted red peppers and cherry tomatoes with balsamic vinaigrette in a whole wheat wrap. I call it the Sandywich, in honor of my favorite pastime. How about it? Would my wrap make the grade?
Also, don’t miss the culture connection on Red Bank’s west side:.
Hair stylist to the local stars and culture vulture Glen Goldbaum will present “GLAMit,” an exhibition by artist Holly Suzanne Rader of old Hollywood glam with a modern feminine edge, from 7-10 p.m. Saturday at Glen Goldbaum 72 and Lambs & Wolves. Rader’s paper dress window installation and mixed media glamour girl portraits will be on display through February and March.

This is a must-see exhibition. I met Rader at Glen’s “Bewitched” event this past fall and absolutely fell head-over-heels for her work. And, of course, Glen really knows how to throw a party. Look for me in the crowd.
