Nudes in Historic Tappan

Back at my favorite wine shop, the Grape D'Vine on Main Street in Tappan, the owner, Joe Prinz, uses his walls to feature the work of local artists. When I walked in yesterday, I was really blown away by the line drawings of Rockland artist Jocelyn DeCrescenzo. Drawing is a difficult genre to master: one hesitation or mistake, and the work is ruined- there's no going back or painting over. Her pencil drawings are mostly of male and female torsos, and are very well done indeed. The drawings are all for sale, and range in price from $250 to $400. The have already come to the attention of serious collectors, including a well-known celeb from Sneden's Landing in Palisades. Be one of the lucky few who can say that they walked out of a wine shop with a bottle in one hand, and a nude in the other.
