… AND THE WINNER IS: “The most recent memorable song I heard in a store was U2’s ‘Mysterious Ways’ at the Bottle King in Dumont,: wrote Mike Higgins, the winner of CLIFFVIEW PILOT‘s Free Celebrity Painting Contest.

We asked readers to tell us the supermarket, grocery store, pharmacy or other public place plays in your neck of the woods that plays the best music to shop by, and what cool song or songs you’ve heard there recently.

Then we chose a winner at random.

It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
She moves in mysterious ways
It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
She moves in mysterious ways
It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
lift my days, light up my nights

WINNER: Mike Higgins

“The spirit moves in mysterious ways!” Mike wrote. And sometimes it does.

He now has his choice of ANY of Lynn Paret’s wonderful celebrity portraits. Hmmm, wonder which he’ll choose….? (P.S. Here’s what Mike really looks like, right.)

The contest was held in conjuction with the 30th annual Hoboken Artists Studio Tour, at which Lynn Paret — an artist and music writer for CLIFFVIEW PILOT — is exhibiting her work from noon to 6 p.m. today.

More than 150 artists, photographers, sculptors and artisans are exhibiting their work at nearly three dozen art studios, galleries, group spaces and local shops citywide, in what essentially is a whistle-stop tour for adventurous art lovers, during this weekend’s festival.

Tour maps are available at City Hall (94 Washington St.), and in issues of The Hoboken Reporter next week. Free shuttle buses will stop at various points, including City Hall, the PATH Station, and the Monroe Center for the Arts, a co-sponsor of the event and the host for Lynn’s unique showing.

If you prefer not to deal with traffic and parking, there are plenty of ways to get there, including the PATH, NJ Transit trains or buses, the Hudson/Bergen Lightrail and NY Waterway ferries.

Lynn’s exhibition runs from noon to 6 p.m. TODAY in Studio C-305 at the center, 720 Monroe Street.

Guitarist Steven Grace Najemian, owner of the Guitar Boutique in Ridgefield, will perform throughout the showing. It’s fitting, given that many of Lynn’s portraits are of rock stars and other musicians.

And here’s the best part: If you don’t see your favorite, you can place an order with Lynn for a custom-made portrait.
