Best of Both Worlds Gallery Plans Friday Night Fête for Feb. 6

The Best of Both Worlds Fine Art and Craft Gallery invites the public to a Friday Night Fête set for 6-9 p.m. on Feb. 6 at Mongoose Junction, St. John. For the next six weeks, the fêtes will feature the work of visiting and local artists in a variety of media from artwork, painting, wearable art, jewelry and photography, accompanied by live music and wine. This week’s artists are photographer Andrew Hajjar and jeweler Ann Larkin-Roy.
Born and raised in Apex Photo Lab in Winchester, Mass., Andrew Hajjar knew it would only be a matter of time before he was the person behind the lens. Meeting photographers and working with diverse cliental at the store provided him with an amazing learning opportunity as he was exposed to a variety of styles, media and techniques. His style developed into a collection of his past, influenced by his days working by his father’s side in Apex. For 50 weeks a year, he fills his calendar photographing the Boston area so that he can escape reality for two weeks and come to the Virgin Islands. This is where he comes to kickback, but the place is too beautiful to let the day go by without a happy hour and a camera.
Live music will be performed by Inner Visions at Virgin Fire Bar & Grill, next door to Best of Both Worlds.
