Town Spotlight: Nephews Skate Shop + Gallery
A local favorite for residents near and within Port Monmouth, New Jersey has become Nephews Skate Shop + Gallery. The shop features only top of the line skate-lifestyle brands and skate decks, and the walls are regularly filled with local artists’ new work. Nephew’s has become the center of Port Monmouth’s skate culture – where beginners, pros and anyone who can appreciate the sport and the local artists, gather regularly. Founded by brothers Brian and Shawn Woodward in honor of their late uncle, Nephew’s fuses the skateboard and art world together in a town that had been lacking a location for resident to enjoy either.
One of our favorite aspects of the skate shop have been the Art Gallery shows, where the community is invited to gather in the cozy, modern skate shop and celebrate the work of local artists of all ages – of which members of the town would have never been able to enjoy previously. The shop’s welcoming crew fills the shop for each art show with residents of all ages – unlike a traditional art gallery, Nephews invites everyone to stop in and say hello, converse with friends, view art, and shop. Most recently, the exterior of Nephews has been painted with a mural by artist Kyle Confehr. The mural wraps from the front door to the long exterior side wall and features geometric shapes and abstract, unique images that immediately grab your attention.
The Sisters’ Soiree attended the most recent art gallery to celebrate the finished mural. As with all Nephews gatherings, the shop filled with friends to enjoy another evening of locals supporting locals. For this celebration we of course, in traditional #SistersSoiree fashion, brought cocktails and snacks! We made our Whiskey Spiced Apple Cider and paired with fresh made Churros! See our setup below:
