We just want to thank everyone who came to the Ann Coen Gallery Holiday Open House. It was one of those still, chilly days on LBI. There were even a few snowflakes, but your spirit warmed the gallery. The event was a huge success and we were able to write a check for $500 to The Jetty Rock Foundation.

The Gallery is still open weekends through the holidays, 11 a.m. - p.m. and most weekdays you can find edit elves in the back. We still have a few sets of LBI inspired holiday cards and artwork for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list.

Christmas cards

As for the raffle, Lisa Bruanwell won that Pine Knot hand plane she's been eyeballing. The Mangino family got a nice little canvas print for when they move back into their raised house. Social Media mogul Dani Corso walked with an Eric Hance print. And Randy Budd will have a sweet black and white Chris Pfeil print to look at as he makes more hand planes for Christmas. Once again, thank you to all who supported this and every event.
