Pier Village is hosting a pop-up art gallery this weekend, April 15-17th, with a group called "Six Oh Nine," which will have an array of items for shoppers to peruse, including photographs, paintings, refurbished furniture and vintage garments, according to event organizers.
The pop-up gallery goes hand in hand with Pier Village's "Art at the Pier" programming, which launched its inaugural exhibition the "Starfish Project " last month. The collection of 4-foot giant starfish figurines were designed by local artists from the Guild of Creative Art in Shrewsbury, NJ and are currently on display to the public.
"Art at the Pier is our way of showcasing our incredibly talented local artists and giving back to the Long Branch community," said Terry Bereheiko, Director of Marketing for Pier Village. "The current starfish sculpture exhibition invokes the ocean and will be auctioned off to benefit local charities later this year. It's been an inspiring, community-driven process that we feel embodies the exciting changes to come at Pier Village."
Also on Sunday, April 17th, the shops at Pier Village will hold a sidewalk sale featuring special offers on most items. Visitors can browse products that range from high-end clothing and seasonal beach wear to artisanal oils and vinegars and more.
The "Oh Six Nine" Pop-Up Art Galley will run on Friday, April 15 from 6 p.m.-11 p.m., Saturday from noon-8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
The "Starfish Project" at Pier Village will be on display at least through Memorial Day.
