Where did the weekend go?
It seems like yesterday I was at the opening of Art of the Bicycle, but in fact it was two days ago! From the moment Marty Epstein opened his doors, till the last piece of the Artist Baker’s Paris Brest was demolished, the energy of the crowd was infectious.
Staged throughout this weekend, today, Sunday, Dec. 9, is the LAST day to catch the show, make a serious dent in your holiday shopping list, and support Bike and Walk Morristown!
The art is phenomenal AND for sale! From photographs to oil paintings. Mountain bikers t-shirts to retro-style road bike shirts. From stylish helmets to jewelry and chocolate, there’s something for everyone!
My personal favorite is the clothing line hotvelociti!
The brainchild of artist Jennifer Benepe, you’ve never seen cycling jerseys and bike dresses like these.
“Ebullinet, graphic and kind of wild,” Jennifer shared that she designs her clothing line “to be seen on the road.” And seen you will be!
But remember, this IS a benefit for Bike and Walk Morristown (BWM). While you’re busy shopping, be sure to take advantage of BWM’s first membership drive!
ART OF THE BICYCLE
Through 5 pm, Sunday, Dec. 9
Marty’s Reliable Cycle
173 Speedwell Ave., Morristown
During the month of December only, you can join as a founding member.
Memberships also make thoughtful gifts for that tough-to-satisfy person on your list.
Another way to support BWM is to buy one of Stu Conway’s fun and colorful bicycle prints.
All proceeds from the sale of these prints are being donated to Bike and Walk Morristown. Thank you Stu!
So remember, stop by Marty’s, buy some art, and join Bike and Walk Morristown today. You’ll be glad you did!
A 13-year resident of Morristown, Marcy can be found leading one of Bike and Walk Morristown’s weekly walks from the Vail Mansion on Tuesday mornings at 8, posting, commenting and sharing on Facebook about the many organizations she loves and supports, madly trying to use the abundance of produce she gets from the Community Supported Garden (CSG) at Genesis Farm and attempting to organize her home. Some of those efforts are more successful than others!
