Studio 33 Art & Frame Gallery presents a Founder’s Day Exhibit on Sat. Aug 10, 2019 at 4:00 to 6:00 PM. Celebrating 40 Years of Studio 33 and Honoring Founder John Martin. Join us as we look back to 1979 when Local Artist John Martin opened his studio in the Mercer Building near the Garde Theater – the only commercial art studio in New London selling paintings by local artists. Having moved from Green Street, where he had an art studio for 8 years, John had more room to go into Custom Professional Picture Framing as well as Sign Painting. John had painted signs for local businesses – Robert’s Electronic’s, Lee’s Kiddyland, Kaplan’s Travel, and H. Marcus & Co. John early on recognized our shoreline area’s interest in the arts and he had faith in New London! Exhibit ends Aug 24, 2019 at 3:00 PM. In the heart of the Historic Waterfront District Heritage Trail, New London, CT, 140 Bank St., Mon 1 to 5, Tue-Fri 9 to 5, Sat 10 to 3, Appt. available.

Sara Munro, Owner of Studio 33 Art & Frame Gallery recently appeared on WTNH 8 in a segment about local businesses giving special offers to Coast Guard families.
NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH) – There are several items in Studio 33 which embody New London. One in particular could have more meaning now.
“Looking at a pewter whale tale ornament,” said Salon 33 owner Sara Monro. “That was especially designed for New London because we are the whaling city.”
Monro thought it would be fitting to offer a discount on that ornament as well as on a pewter whale tale necklace to Coast Guard families during the government shutdown.
“We do a lot of business with the Coast Guard people,” said Monro. “They’re great folks and they secure our borders.”
She is showing her appreciation with a 40 percent discount on the items at Studio 33 which will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in New London this spring.Follow this link to News 8 WTNH.com to see Tina Detelj’s local news report with video: https://www.wtnh.com/news/connecticut/new-london/local-businesses-offer-discounts-to-coast-guard-families/1696365552
