At James Yarosh Associates Fine Art & Design Gallery in Holmdel, New Jersey, December ushers in the annual holiday season fine art exhibit, a tradition where guests are welcome to visit the festively decorated gallery to relish the works of several newly featured artists, as well as pieces by gallery favorites. Extended weekend hours,12-4pm, on December 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th provide guests with further opportunity to enjoy the impressive holiday exhibit.

For James Yarosh Associates Fine Art and Design Gallery, 2009’s holiday season features several exciting components. At the art gallery, there is the premiere of fine art appropriate for collecting and holiday gift-giving. At Garmany, a luxury clothing house on Broad Street in Red Bank, New Jersey, there is a special holiday “Windows at Garmany” art exhibit curated by James Yarosh, evoking the spark of New York City window displays while promoting a collection of works by young artists as part of a sponsorship drive entitled “A Pet Charity,” aimed at raising money for animal charities. In addition, later in December, the gallery’s critically-acclaimed collection of Russian Realism artwork will be featured in a Moscow museum.

Windows at Garmany, Holiday 2009, Featuring “A Pet Charity”
The idea for the current window displays designed by James Yarosh and featured at Garmany, a 40,000-square-foot, luxury clothing house on Broad Street in Red Bank, evolved from a simple social exchange via the phenomena of Facebook. The concept of sponsoring young artists’ holiday-themed cat and dog artwork to raise direct donations for animal charities grew out of James’s re-connection with a high school friend after an impromptu decision to attend an unofficial reunion. While visiting Dena Fichot, a friend he had not seen in 24 years, James listened intently as Dena brought him up to date about her husband Robert and their very special son Robert, age 7, and also about her daughter, Sarah. Sarah, a young, 12-year-old artist, has remained a vegetarian since the age of 10, deciding her love of animals was stronger than her appetite. Dena also mentioned how her daughter and two of her friends, Hannah Lemme and Jackie Rice, expressed interest in starting an art event to raise money for the Popcorn Park Zoo.

James immediately thought of his “Windows at Garmany” displays as a perfect venue to fast-forward the girls’ idea into a holiday event. Yarosh, who has been furnishing solo and theme exhibits in the eight broad street windows of Garmany clothing store seasonally since 2005 thought what could be a better match than combining children’s artwork, puppies and kittens and a charity drive, especially during the holiday season? Twenty drawings later, they added the option for viewers to make donations to the Monmouth County SPCA as part of the online “Sponsor Your Favorite Pet Drawing” to further the cause of the pet charity fundraiser. The online address for sponsorship is linked on his gallery website, In addition, creating postcards to encourage extended fundraising opportunities and giving family and friends the ability to download the show’s poster image of the children’s artwork to post on their own Facebook pages or other networking sites allow the charity to grow legs and reach animal lovers everywhere.

James, having personally participated in numerous fundraisers, knows it is always best to offer support to those who have the initiative and drive to champion a good cause. He considers himself lucky as a young boy to have the support of his parents and educators who helped give wings to his dream of forging an art career, and he is confident that this show is a win/win for giving back in many ways. The gallery owner explains, "Even before the show was hung for display, so many people involved have been touched by sincerity of heart creating this event and the personal tributes of the pets for dear friends and animal themes created for view that the show is already a success. It has also given me the perfect excuse and timing opportunity to fund raise for my own gratitude for the humane societies and spay clinics having my own back yard of strays I care for outside and even bringing in my own once displaced house cat Ilean ( named for his broken front paw) to become my pet and live inside Christmas morning three years ago ."

A Russian Realism Art Museum Show—in Moscow!
James Yarosh Associates Fine Art and Design Gallery extends a special invitation to guests to come view the critically-acclaimed collection of Russian Realism art and also view images of what will be shown in a Moscow museum show opening this month in Russia. Usually, a Russian art show is held as an annual gallery trunk show as part of our Holiday show, so foregoing my show for a museum show in Russia this year proves to be a great honor. To ensure the availability of favorite pieces, collectors should contact the gallery regarding what paintings are available and consider the option of tagging their selections for purchase before the Moscow show for acquisition after the show in Moscow concludes. John Wurdeman, art historian and scholar of the Russian Realism School, who co-hosts the events with the gallery annually will be in Moscow for the event’s opening. Further information about the collection is available through contacting James Yarosh directly at the gallery.

James Yarosh Associates Fine Art and Design Gallery offers extended holiday hours, as well as appointments during weekdays and evenings. For more information, please contact the gallery directly at 732 993 5278 or 732 993 5ART
