The Ann Coen Gallery in Surf City, New Jersey, opening for summer 2014 is a result of a vision - years of dreaming and planning to provide an amazing creative space on LBI. As the new home of Ann Coen Photography, it will continue to be a place where families and couples can consult to discuss capturing the moments of their lives, but it will also be a forward-thinking gallery, hosting art shows and events throughout the year. It's a place to celebrate the traditional allure of Long Beach Island, while moving stylistically in a forward direction.
