Brilliant Stranger’s Dawn Patel moved her gallery and boutique to 7896 Hwy 42 in Egg Harbor during the fall of 2019, but nothing turned out quite as planned. The shop is now open for full-time summer hours, and Patel is celebrating with a long-overdue grand opening Friday, June 24, 4-5:30 pm; and Saturday, June 25, 1-3 pm. Brilliant Stranger’s (brilliantstranger.com) clothing will be on sale both days.
The weekend will kick off June 24 with a guided gong meditation and embodied intuitive art-making session with Patel and Christine Zimonick of The High Heart Project. Art supplies will be provided; please supply your own mat, blanket and/or cushion. Donations are encouraged. Reserve a spot and ask questions by texting 920.366.0301.
The celebration will continue June 25 with Tony Bessen’s music on the porch, featuring handmade guitars by Dale Kumbalek Toonwood, who will be available to answer questions about these one-of-a-kind instruments.
