for zombies. And for artists. And for people too. Lovely, just lovely!
I am referring to the NJ Zombie Walk that was held this past Saturday in Asbury Park along with some gallery show openings and general good times. Ed and I are very excited by our new friends over at Parlor Gallery and Asbury Lanes and went out Saturday to support them. At first we needed to do a drive by of the boardwalk to take in all the zombie walking. Such an awesome site to see bloodied faces basking in the dying light of a great day at the seashore. You don't get these images from other zombie walks and apparantly their sites are firmly set on setting the record next year, so watch out Monroeville!
Then it was a quick walk over to Shelter Home which is my new favorite shop. Reminiscent of Tokyo shops and every good thing I've ever seen on the internet, it also has two lovely owners (Scott and Gene) and their beautiful standard poodles, Diego (pure black) and Lucia (pure white). Seems I may have seen these guys running around Washington Square Park back in my NYU days as well. Walking to and from classes I loved it when the black and white poodles were romping around the doggie section of the park. After telling Scott this, he said he had lived in the Washington Square Park area and has always had a black and a white standard poodle! Love it when things work out...
Across the street was Parlor Gallery and their newest show, ART Bloc. What a great show! Honestly haven't seen such great art from an array of artists in...well...in a long, long time. And only one week ago we had wandered into Shelter Home, talked with Scott and Gene who introduced us to Jenn who runs Parlor. Jenn also organizes some great events over at Asbury Lanes and we'll be talking with her very soon about showing some of our work there.
Small world, wonderful sights, ocean breezes and all 30 minutes from our house.
