The Muriel Guepin Gallery, a gorgeous newly renovated space on Bergen Street, exhibits works of exceptional quality by both emerging and more established artists, with a strong focus on artists who are Brooklyn based. The Gallery aims to make art more accessible, while allowing artists to increase their visibility and reach within their own community. The gallery was founded in December 2008 as Shop Art, and reopens this month into a new space that is able to exhibit larger pieces of art, as well as installations and sculptures. The larger space also allows for an ambitious new art program for both children and adults.  

Brooklyn Oenology, with its headquarters in Brooklyn and winemaking on Long Island, offers art both inside and outside the bottle at an affordable price. The company prides itself on crafting its flavorful wines from grapes grown locally.   In addition, Brooklyn Oenology incorporates the heart of the Brooklyn spirit into the label art, where they showcase contemporary works created by people who live and work here.

Nine Cakes began by selling mini, whimsical cupcakes at the Brooklyn Indie Market and other New York City craft and foodie fairs. Within their first year, they’ve received national recognition, including making the wedding cake for the 10th annual ‘TODAY Show Throws a Wedding.’ Building on a reputation for consistently fantastic cakes, cupcakes, and desserts, Betsy Thorleifson, baker and owner of Nine Cakes opened their first shop in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

The amazing raffle prizes include:

All guests will take away a Momasphere goodie bag which includes travel-friendly moisturizers care of Skin Specialty Group, delicious all natural Q.Bel chocolate bars, Mini Lunabars and other surprises!
