Romany Kramoris Gallery
is unveiling a special festive display in the windows of the Sag Harbor-based gallery on Thursday, December 27 - just in time for end of the year celebrations.
The FUN faces were created by Adrienne Kitaeff, AKA the FUNist, whose motto is "Have FUN, Be FUN, Give FUN." Kitaeff accomplishes the third part of her motto by donating a portion of the sales from her whimsical creations to a different organization each season. Currently, proceeds from the FUNist's works support Meals on Wheels
, a program that delivers nutritious meals to those that are homebound.
The FUNist's faces evolved from years of doodling. "I have never drawn before... I've done photography and writing, but not drawing. One morning I downloaded an app to my iPad
and started doodling - the faces came out of those doodles," the FUNist explained.
Kitaeff does not consider herself an artist but rather a FUNist, hence the pseudonym.

"I don't know who they are or where they come from, but I don't question it anymore and just laugh when they appear," the FUNist shared. She hopes her works bring as much cheer to viewers that it brings her creating her FUN community.
In addition to appearing in Romany Kramoris
Gallery's windows, the originally designed faces can be found adorning a plethora of products, such as clothing, tote bags, flip flops, mugs, beach towels, shower curtains and greeting cards.
"They're adorable," noted Romany Kramoris, Romany Kramoris Gallery owner. "As charming as anything you've ever seen - even more so."
Romany Kramoris Gallery is located at 41 Main Street in Sag Harbor. For more information, visit kramorisgallery.com.

Southrifty Drug 54 Jagger Lane, Southampton Village
Southrifty Drug is a small, neighborhood pharmacy with limited shelf space, and we have to be very selective about which over-the-counter items we carry. As a result you'll find a no nonsense concentration of very effective, high quality and useful products on our shelves. In this new section, we feature a number of these products that we feel are especially worthy of your consideration.
