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 made out to hob'art co-operative gallery, e 208, The Monroe Center for the Arts, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030. THANK YOU! Sincerely, Liz Cohen, President of hob'art co-operative gallery
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.
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.
Our objective is to exhibit contemporary art of the highest standard. As a collective gallery, we welcome and encourage a wide range of art work and media: fiber, printmaking, digital, photography, sculpture/3D, painting, drawing and mixed media.
