UNITED, members’ group show, in celebration of Black History month
and in tribute to our dear friend and supporter Edla Cusick.

Participating artists include: Tom Egan, Jean Paul Picard, Don Sichler, Alberte Bernier, Carla Cubit, Piper Smith, Miriam Untoria, Ibou Ndoye, France Garrido, Jim Fallon, and Liz Ndoye.Edla Cusick was a long time supporter of the arts and in particular hob’art cooperative gallery. We dedicate our show celebrating the accomplishments, contributions, and struggles of the African American community to Edla because she dedicated her life to the causes of equal rights and justice for all. It is fitting to give homage to this great fellow artist through our works on a theme that was so very important to her.

Bernier

Spin

hob’art gallery is attempting to share a visual tribute to the richness and importance of African American life. This is a huge theme, but our artists show their own unique and exciting perspective on the many aspects of black life in this country. Each artist “unites” these many parts into a cohesive and beautiful show. The works present the unifying principle that our humanity brings us together and that art can bridge all divisions.
Portraits by Fallon, Picard, Ndoye, Untoria, Egan, through their intense colors, highlight the physical diversity and beauty of people of African ancestry. Cubit, Bernier, and Liz Ndoye use fabric, textures, and imagery that evoke the continuing, ongoing struggle for civil and human rights. Sichler, Garrido, and Smith’s photography convey the essence of this struggle through abstract, almost surreal pictures.
