Some Thoughts on a Time of Giving

Hello Everyone,

 At this time of year, we are often hit with countless pleas to make
 contributions to our favorite non-profit organizations. If you are like me
 and have a finger in every action committee, ecological cause, or
 political awareness campaign you are probably feeling overwhelmed and
 defeated. It is extremely difficult trying to decide where your hard
 earned dollars will be best spent.

 I am suggesting, however, that this year your most effective effort would
 be to think small, creative, and local. The organizations that are hardest
 hit and most often overlooked are those at the community, grass roots
 level.

 hob'art co-operative gallery fits this description. We are a group of
 local, committed artist/activists trying to revive and sustain the
 struggling artist community of Hoboken and the surrounding Northern New
 Jersey towns. We have created a venue for wonderful exhibitions, film
 nights, critiques, and workshops at the Monroe Center for the Arts,
 gallery e 208, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ. The word is spreading about
 the high quality of art that we display and the creativity of what we are
 doing.

 Our work has been going on quietly for twelve years now and we are growing
 stronger every day. We partner with the Hoboken Public Library and the
 Hoboken Shelter to spread the power of the visual arts to all members of
 our community. But, as with all non profits, we are continually plagued by
 operating costs and this is where you come in!

 If you are able, we are looking for contributions to help us continue this
 very important work. We understand the terrible financial crunch that is
 affecting us all at this down time in our economy and we are grateful
 therefore for anything that you are able to contribute. All donations ARE
 tax deductible. Please send your check  madeout to hob'art co-operative gallery, e
 208, The Monroe Center for the Arts, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030.
 
THANK YOU AND HAPPY 2015!
Sincerely,
Liz Cohen, President of hob'art co-operative gallery

 

hob’art mission

hob’art co-operative gallery is Hoboken’s only artists’ co-operative. Our mission is two fold. One, we work with our member artists to be inspired to create, to promote, to market, to exhibit, and to sell their work.  Two, we work to make Hoboken the preeminent arts destination that it was in the past. We do this through workshops, critiques, exhibitions, film nights, artists talks, and slide evenings at our gallery and various locations in Hoboken and the larger community.

hob’art vision

Welcome to hob’art, a co-operative gallery; be a part, be aware, learn and let the artist give back the inspiration that brought us here.

Formed in 2002, hob’art is a co-operative gallery run by its officers and members. We are located at Gallery E 208, The Monroe Center for the Arts, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030.
