We opened the Ann Coen Gallery in May of 2014 and could not have been happier with our first year. From the wildly successful "Womens Lifesaving League" show with Julie Goldstein to the countless families that came through for beach portraits, to our Holiday Open House to the support of our friends and family, we will always look back fondly on season one.
And now we're focused on 2015. The Gallery will be open by appointment through the winter. We plan to get a lot of our inventory online for those away from LBI in the off season. But most importantly, we are lining up great shows for this year. Look for a show with featuring the fine art sketches of the young talented Terence Smith in May, a long overdue solo show of Barnegat Light photographer Chris Pfeil, a pop up gallery with Julie Goldstein/Swim With Me in July, and a benefit show for the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey in August with Ben Wurst, Jim Vernhagen, and Eric Hance. We will sure up dates as things get closer.
The Island will slow down for the next two months. Enjoy the solitude and stay warm.
