Frenchtown shows its love for local photographer


Over 200 guests from the Frenchtown, N.J., community, artists and neighboring art associations came together to celebrate “community spirit working together to support one of our own” – beloved photographer Bill Brokaw.

Makers Alley, The Mix, The Photographers Group and Edible Underground joined forces with the community for the Bill Brokaw Fundraiser silent and live auction at Darcy Lodge on April 23.

Over 140 items were donated, many by established and emerging artists. In addition other non-art-related items, including gift baskets, services and gift certificates, were donated by Frenchtown businesses in support of the effort.

In addition to the silent and live auction, the event featured hors d’oeuvres, cash bar and music.
