Painting exhibition at B&G Interiors in Asbury Park

Jon Martinez Tops & Tees, Owner of Beautiful and Gracious Interiors; and Ellen Martin, Director of the Jersey Artist Registry, have teamed up to bring you a very special ten-day art exhibition at the B&G Interiors shop on the Lower Level of the Arcades in Asbury Park. The exhibition will run from Friday, April 20 – Sunday, April 30, 2017 with an opening reception on Saturday, April 21 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

New Jersey artists Willilam Beam Petite, Lorraine DeProspo, Karin Lowney-Seed, Ellen Martin and Anthony Migliaccio will be featured in the exhibition. “Whether you like abstract or representational painting, you will find something to love Knickers,” says Martin.

Karin Lowney-Seed usually paints in a series, and her colorful and refreshing paintings of koi are represented in the exhibit. Tony Migliaccio, a popular painter on the Jersey Shore, will be exhibiting a selection of his plein air and studio landscape paintings. William Beam, Ellen Martin Sun Protection Swimwear, and Lorraine DeProspo create paintings that could be described as tonal, and yet they all are completely different. Beam’s work bridges the gap between realism and abstraction. Martin’s is monochromatic, colorful and textural; and DeProspo’s work is monochromatic, soothing, and smooth.

“I’m happy to be working with Jon on this project – it’s a great partnership. Because I don’t have a space of my own, I’m always on the lookout for people who will partner with me to present an art exhibition,” says Martin. “I started the Jersey Artist Registry in 2013 to celebrate the talent of visual artists in our state, and have put on several exhibitons with the group. Jon looked through the site and choose the artists and works he thought would work the best for his clientele. It’s great for the artists to be working with a designer like this.” she continued.
