Downtown Jersey CityGallery and Lounge Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary
Jersey City, New Jersey
Yes, it’s really been 10 years! Some of you have been there from the beginning, some of you have just discovered it, LITM invites you ALL to join in celebrating this milestone with a fantastic cocktail party. Starting with an early Champagne Cocktail Hour from 7-8. One FREE Champagne Cocktail per guest. The party will get into full swing a little later with passed hors d’oeuvres, DJs, 2 for $10 cocktail list, and more!
Located in the heart of vibrant Downtown Jersey City, LITM offers both emerging and established artists a modern venue to exhibit work. Curator Andrea Morin carefully selects pieces for monthly rotating shows that include group and solo exhibits.
LITM is known for giving new artists a solid presence within the Jersey City arts community. Over 60 artists have been featured in solo exhibitions and hundreds more have participated in group shows since 2003. Kayt Hester, an area artist known for creating pieces from hand-torn masking tape, got her start at LITM in 2005 and has since gone on to show at galleries around the country and be commissioned by companies such as Victorinox Swiss Army International. Illustrator Megan Gulick got her start behind LITM’s bar in 2007, and went on to become their most successful repeat exhibitors.
LITM has also shown established artists on its walls. In 2004, musician Suzanne Vega commemorated her brother Tim Vega’s life and work with a live performance and posthumous solo show shortly after LITM opened its doors. Jersey City based pop artist Robert Piersanti has worked with Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, Guitar World and has taken commissioned work for album art and book covers. He has hosted 3 solo shows at LITM since.
LITM redefines traditional art space by combining a modern neighborhood lounge with a contemporary gallery. Handcrafted cocktails and award-winning culinary creations are made to order, and lend to a comfortable atmosphere that encourages patrons to observe available art pieces.
“LITM’s 10 Year Anniversary Party” is happening on Saturday, November 23 from 7pm to 2am at LITM, located at 140 Jersey Avenue in Downtown Jersey City.
