Nine years ago, the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club offered to its artist members and some local artists the opportunity to display and sell their work at a small show at the yacht club. Since then, the committee continued to reach out to the numerous talented artists in the community and since that first show, the number of artists and craft artisans have increased considerably with displays of exceptional artists and crafters not usually found at other events. “This year you can expect to see the artwork from some of the artists who have been with us for many years and count this show as one of their favorites to participate in. However we have added some very talented new artists to the mix” said Sharon Herbst the chairman of the event. Some of the paintings in the show will focus on the local area with seascapes and boats chosen especially for this show by the artists.
Artists have created notecards and laser prints designed from their original works that make great affordable gifts! There will also be many original paintings for sale at competitive prices. And, unique jewelry, ceramics and other one of-a-kind gift items that cannot be found in shops.
