Award winning  local artist Roberta Giannone, will celebrate her 40th year in Harvey Cedars in 2014.  The little studio tucked into the little house across from the Public Works offices in Harvey Cedars  has turned out many loved paintings and montages that fill rooms and cover walls from Holgate to Barnegat Light.  The daughter of Gwen Sweet, Roberta started painting and selling out of her mother’s Hoot Owl Gallery in the ‘60’s.  “I am a realist who works in acrylics,” says Roberta, “ I could never stand the smell of oils.”  All of her frames are hand made out of drift woods by her husband Wayne.  She also has a limited number of Gwen Sweet prints still available to sell.  She will be open Sats. and Suns., 10 – 4.  “We will be closing down this fall Oct. 1st to go to Florida.  Our old bones can’t take the winters here anymore.”  Anyone wanting a Roberta before next May needs to visit now.
