  • Harry Good - The Red Door Gallery

    A Gallery with True Grit

    It isn’t difficult to find great art in New Jersey. Galleries are popping up all over the place, and even the common coffee shop has started promoting local artists. This, however, is only scratching the surface of the art scene. With a little digging — not too much since it’s fairly well promoted — you’ll hit an art space with true grit. Tucked away in a warehouse cache on Brighton Ave. in Passaic is The Red Door Gallery.

    Old Town, New Attitude: Boonton Satisfies Art Lovers

    Usually, when I get the familiar itch to satisfy my artistic cravings on any given day, my habit has been to turn toward New York City to find galleries and new artists to check out. I might get lucky somewhere in Morristown or Montclair, but in general, North Jersey hasn’t had a history or offering much in the way of fine art (while we haven’t been devoid of places like this, it does takes some digging). Recently, however, I’ve noticed a bit of a resurgence in the arts and culture scene in Morris County.

  • Matt Hand - Right Hand Photography

    Through the Eye of a Hand

    Matt Hand is the eye behind Right Hand Photography, a hobbyist business that he approaches with an organic, earth-friendly mindset. Do not be fooled into thinking he’s only photographing his adorable children! Matt is very aware of his art and takes composition into consideration. His images exude an intense representation of life through strongly contrasting textures, vivid color, and a lot of shadow-play. Whether it’s his wife Jessica holding their infant son or a thick length of vine creeping across the floor of an abandoned greenhouse, his photographs are beautifully uncanny.
