Atlantic Highlands, NJ - Enjoy a full-filled afternoon that provides a wide variety of art and delicious tastes from the local chefs and artists in Atlantic Highlands.  Join other food and art lovers on Sunday, May 31 from 1-4pm, as several local restaurants and galleries on First Ave will be presenting an afternoon of “Eats & Arts”.  Each restaurant will introduce its chef and offer guests engaging conversation and tastes of a favorite and popular menu item(s) from its restaurant, while featuring several local artists and live artist demonstrations at their location. 

 

The local galleries will also be participating in this “artistic” afternoon by offering a tour of its gallery.  At the end of the event, attendees should stop by the Arts Corner at 135 First Ave to enjoy coffee compliments of Fair Mountain Coffee Roasters, and delicious bites compliments of Flakey Tart, while viewing the Camera Art: ColorMotion Exhibition.

The “Eats & Arts” Festival, sponsored by the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council, is intended to create a broad array of art experiences, nurture the development of diverse art forms, and encourage the expanding strength of cultural life in Atlantic Highlands, while providing community interaction.  This is also a fundraiser for the new Arts Corner that opened its doors in December of 2014.
