ARTISTS’ RECEPTION Nov. 8th 6 – 8 PM

GALLERY TALK  NOV. 16th 3:30

Artists use different media for a variety of reasons – to express a visual image, to evoke memories, to reduce and recycle, to create a texture or feeling, or to show mastery of a material. Whatever you choose, your media matters, because it is conveys your concept. This exhibition will showcase the varied “stuffs” that we use and the extraordinary array of what they inspire us to create.

Imagined Realities

Friday October 10 – Sunday November 2, 2014

Artists’ Reception:  Saturday, October 11, 6– 8pm

Gallery Talk:  Sunday, October 19, 3:30pm

“IMAGINED REALITIES” is a visually evocative and illuminating exhibition devoted to the recent work of hob’art members Miriam Untoria and Meredeth Turshen.  Each artist draws inspiration from her environment to represent her imagined realities.  Although different in approach, their new work evokes a balance of sensibility and emotion, reality and imagination. Miriam Untoria uses acrylic paint, collage, small sculptures and found objects to create emotional depictions of portraits and imaginary existences in two and three dimensions. Meredeth Turshen is exhibiting new bold, layered and textured paintings on paper in oil, with traces of pastel and graphite; the compositions evokeenergy and movement and radiate light.

 Beyond the Photograph

Thursday, September 11 , 2014 – Sunday, October 5, 2014 

Artists’ Reception: Thursday, September 11, 6:00-8:00pm 

Artists’ Talk: Sunday September 21, 3:30pm 

Beyond the Photograph, an exhibition of artwork by Don Sichler and Roslyn Rose, will be open to the public from September 11 to October 5, 2014 at hob’art gallery, Monroe Art Center, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken. Mr. Sichler zooms in on the minutiae of everyday life and Ms. Rose steps back to see the broader picture.  A reception to meet the exhibitors will be held on Thursday, September 11th, 6-8pm

Carol Squiers, curator at the International Center for Photography, suggested in her book, “What is Photography,” that it is unclear where the medium of photography is headed, but she is certain that contemporary photographers are doing things that are disorienting, yet ultimately transformative. Roslyn Rose photographs and collects images of interiors and exterior facades exposing the space behind doors and windows to reveal new images. She combines reality with unreality and insists upon the validity of the merger. Two of Ms. Rose’s digitally manipulated reinterpretations of original photographs are collaborations with photographer, Ann Kinney. Don Sichler’s pictures reveal the details of our surroundings that most people fail to notice. These images are intriguing abstractions that blur the source of their original inspirations. His camera records images created by shadows, light, reflections and colors that occur for only a fleeting moment in time.
On Sunday, September 21 at 3:30pm, during another reception, the artists will talk about their artwork and welcome questions from visitors. Gallery hours are Thursday to Sunday, 1 to 5pm and by appointment. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.

 

THERE IS A NEW ENTRANCE LOCATED IN THE C BUILDING which is on 8th Street and from left side of parking lot. Look for signs. Use elevator or stairs to second floor and follow signs for #E208 in E building.

Abstracting Nature


Leaving Cuba

Friday August 8, 2014 – Sunday September 7, 2014

Artists’ Talk: Sunday August 17, 3:30pm 

alberte-olga-card-final-e1406459892253

“Abstracting Nature” puts in perspective a selection of artwork in which each artist illustrates her expressionist interpretation of nature. Although different in scope, their work evokes similar sensitivity and emotion. Alberte Bernier will present artwork created from oil on canvas and mixed media. Olga Guerra will present mixed media pieces of work through photography and scanography, the art of taking pictures with a scanner. To Alberte Bernier, a Chashama artist, painting represents a desire to convey emotion and fantasy. Olga Guerra puts emphasis on light, movement, depth of field, colors and layers.

Alberte Bernier works in several mediums, and she incorporates found objects gathered from various landscapes into her work. For Olga Guerra, who works mostly with found objects, the scanner is an endless source of challenges and delights that allow her to reconcile two and three-dimensional designs.

Free parking is available at the rear of the building on Jackson Street and is wheelchair accessible. Gallery information may be obtained on the website www.hob-art.org and from the director, France Garrido, (201) 319-1504 or director@hob-art.org.

NARRATIVES

page-0-2

Thursday, July 10 – Saturday, August 2

Artist Reception: Saturday, July 12, 6-8pm

Artist Talk: Sunday, July 20, 3:30pm

The work in Narratives is a whimsical display of story-telling through descriptive imagery. Both artists share an interest in figurative representation and offer unique perspectives about art as a means of communication. Gilmore uses chance and creative energy to describe his work, while Pariso takes a methodical and classical approach to his illustrations. Joe Gilmore’s ability to create engaging, incidental marks on the surface speaks for itself. Vibrant hues and bold strokes are staples of Gilmore’s portraits. There is an intelligent and sensitive energy to his work that encourages the viewer to experience an emotional response. Gilmore’s intent is to inspire the individual to form their own opinion of what is personally being perceived. This is an intimate and thought-provoking approach to using narrative in visual art. Frank Pariso is an illustrator from New Jersey whose work can best be described as imaginative realism. Pariso uses his artistic abilities to create illustrative renderings of curious animal-like characters. His inventive characters may range anywhere from wild animals to dinosaurs. Pariso mostly works in acrylic paint but also uses watercolor, oil paint, and a variety of other materials. The meticulous manner in which he paints lends itself to the unexpected realistic effect of each character. Pariso is heavily influenced by the old masters as well as meaningful narrative. !Each piece depicts a unique narrative, adding to the overall quality of the piece.

Gallery hours are Thursday to Sunday, 1 to 5pm and by appointment.

Artists’ Reception:Saturday, May 3, 6-8pm

Artist’s Talk:Sunday, May 18, 3:30pm

Colorscapes is an exhibition of photographs and abstract pastel drawings by two artists. Thomas Egan and Susan Davis have their own interpretations of well established photographic and graphic mediums producing suggestive images in which color plays a dominant role.

“Colorscapes” suggests a basic compatibility, belying any difference in medium, that is apparent in the work of the two artists exhibiting in the hob’art gallery’s upcoming exhibition. Both artists employ intense colors that complement form, content and gesture in the creation of their art.Thomas Egan’s new photographs are experiments in re-inventing one’s own environment by mutating the things we see every day and take for granted.Susan Davis exploits the gestural, textural and depth-signifying space that is available via a soft sandpaper two-dimensional surface, in the tradition of color field painting.

Traditions & Transitions

Friday, April 4 to Sunday, April 27, 2014

Artist’s Reception: Saturday, April 5th, 6-8 PM

Artist’s Talk: Sunday, April 20th, 3:30 PM

hob’art Cooperative Gallery

Monroe Art Center, 720 Monroe Street, E208 – Floor 2, Hoboken, NJ 07030

Gallery Hours: Thursday – Sunday, 1 to 5 PM and by appointment: (201) 319-1504

Tradition suggests a notion of holding on, while transition defines a period of changing from one condition to another. Both tradition and transition are reflected in the art of two dynamically different styles and mediums. In her most recent photographs, Ann Kinney explores the timelessness of the traditions we embrace. She looks at the overarching forces of nature, where change is as constant and enduring as waves hitting the shore. Her imagery also explores the times and places of our lives, the icons that we hold on to, and the places that we frequent.

Maya Forester’s recent work utilizes traditional techniques from the early Renaissance combined with a modern sense of color and esthetic. Ms. Forester’s mixed media artworks convey the subject of her works which express aspects of the transformative, visionary and deeply personal process she has been experiencing, often through iconic imagery.

Free parking is available at the rear of the building on Jackson Street.

Gallery hours are Thursday to Sunday, 1 to 5pm and by appointment.

The title of the exhibition, “Luminescent,” meaning the emitting of light not caused by heat, explains the substance of the artwork on display. The two artists vehemently demonstrate how their mediums, photography mixed media, can utilize and/or produce light whether real or imagined to create a world of illusion.Starr Tucker-Ortega has explored traditional Photography, Sunprints and Photograms in an effort to create portals into imagined planes spaces. Her new work continues to play with the idea of perceived realities She strives to create otherworldly images where the viewer can be transported to another place or time that may or may not exist in real life.France Garrido, known internationally for her paintings collages, will exhibit her newest experimental works of Ebony, Monolith Graphite Pencil Ink drawings on Mylar. These potent images that are figurative, though not necessarily realistic, as well as bold and sensitive surreal plunges into a world where light and dark play with each other in a dramatic way.

Liz Cohen and Ibou Ndoye collaborated, using reverse painting of window panes, to shed light on the amazing ability of art to break down barriers of race and culture. Utilizing painting and drawing Alberte Bernier and Kristin Pereira, engage the viewers with the canvas. Donovan Nelson, Issa Sow and Lauryn Ahearn exhibit rich abstract images and vibrant colors to express a range of ideas about new birth, relationships and escapism.

    “Triad,” an exhibition of traditional and digital mediums by three artists, will be open to the public from September 5 to 29, 2013 at the hob’art gallery, Monroe Art Center, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken. The artists, France Garrido, Starr Tucker-Ortega, and Roslyn Rose, experiment with established drawing and photographic mediums to produce avant-garde images.

Gallery hours are Thursday to Sunday, 1 to 5pm and by appointment. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition. “Triad,” accurately describes the compatibility of the three artists who are part of the hob’art gallery’s upcoming exhibition. Like three notes blending harmoniously, the thread of abstracted realities and ‘other worldliness’ is immediately apparent although each artist executes her ideas with a different technique. France Garrido, known internationally for her collages, will exhibit her rarely seen Ebony & Monolith Graphite Pencil drawings. These strong, energetic and detailed mandalic type drawings were inspired by her eclectic taste in music. Starr Tucker-Ortega plays with the idea of perceived realities. The ethereal content of her imagery transports the viewer to an another space or time, another plane of existence. Roslyn Rose digitally combines her photographs with found images to create innovative illusions of possible reality. Gallery information can be obtained on the website www.hob-art.org and from the Director, France Garrido, (201) 707-6107 or director@hob-art.org.

    The “Arc of Vision” is an exhibition of recent work by three members of the hob’art gallery who employ diverse mediums and approaches. Each one takes inspiration from our common visual surroundings with a different strategy. The arc of the artists’ vision moves from contemplation of nature, to color-field abstraction or to the artifice of computer manipulation. Photographer Barbara Jacoby displays images that emphasize how life and nature can be viewed in a variety of ways. Susan A. Davis’s gestural abstractions in pastel are concerned with light, color and the suggestion of dimensionality. Janet Kolstein combines her own photographs with found vintage images, creating quirky and ethereal digital collages.

    On Thursday, May 30 an exhibition, Color Visions, will open at the hob’art gallery, Monroe Art Center, 720 Monroe Street, #E208, Hoboken, NJ.  Three members of the gallery will present artwork in the mediums of photography, printmaking and digital printmaker.The exhibition will be open to the public from May 30-June 23, 2013 on Thursday through Sunday afternoons, 1-5pm and by appointment. A reception for the artists will be held on Saturday, June 1, 6-8pm. During the monthly Gallery Walk on Sunday, June 16, the artist will talk to the public about their artwork. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.

    Constance Ftera has been concentrating on printmaking for several years, most recently using the monoprint technique with a repeatable matrix of intaglio line and added color on the same printing plate. This allows experimentation in color, design, and medium. Howard Berelson’s transition from children’s book illustrator to printmaker, to artist in residence and now to digital print maker spanned over forty years. Teaching children of all ages gave Howard a way in which to reconnect with a child’s delight in discovery. A book of illustrated poetry is now in progress. Ann Taricone Kinney has a camera with her all the time. Living and working in New Jersey she derives much her inspiration and imagery from the Jersey Shore. Her images come from nature with an underlying current of earth, water, fire, air and the human force. The images that intrigue her, combine shape and color, time and place, and tell the stories that we share.

Explore the nature and implications of the creative process with internationally known collage artist Jonathan Talbot. Learn how the insights we acquire from the plastic arts can be applied in other areas of our lives. Talbot will also demonstrate a number of the technical innovations which are discusses in his book “Collage: A New Approach.” Talbot is a leading artist in the collage field. His works have been shown at the National Academy,MOMA, U.S. and Europe. He is the developer of a new collage technique which eliminates wet adhesives from the collage-assembly process. This technique, allows greater spontaneity, more precise placement of materials, and at the same time eliminates wrinkling and allows collages to be composed and then “glued down” without dissembly.

      On Friday, April 26th at 1:00 PM an exhibition, “Envisioning,” will open at the hob’art Co-Operative Gallery, 720 Monroe Street, Room E208, Hoboken, NJ. Three members of the gallery will present artwork in the mediums of oil, acrylic, mische technique, oil pastel and mixed media. The exhibit will be open to the public from Friday, April 26th to Sunday May 19th, 2013. The Opening Reception, which will provide an opportunity to meet the artists, will be held on Saturday, April 27th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

The artists wish to thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art Co-Operative Gallery for their support of this exhibition. The Envisioning exhibit features three artists who work in innovative ways with imagery that comes from within. Miriam, Erich and Philip have had no prior knowledge of each other’s work, but yet there is a commonality to be found in their painterly approach, bold use of color, and imaginative subject matter. Miriam Untoria says of her recent work, “My pieces in this exhibit are playful combinations of landscapes and figures. They are drawings within paintings and paintings within drawings. The final result of my work continues to be a surrealistic experience where everything is possible as reality and fantasy merge.” “I am striving to create images that can touch the heart and awaken a sense of wonder in the viewer. I have always had a love of rich, vibrant color and organic form. I strive to make artworks that incorporates aspects of my spiritual outlook,” says Erich Heinemann of his work in the exhibition. Philip DePinto offers this statement regarding the paintings on display: “My work tends to waver between the figurative and expressionistic and strives toward a synthesis of these elements while at the same time attempting to retain a semblance of autonomy in each of these elements.”   Additional information: France Garrido, 201-319-1504 or director@hob-art.org.

They do this through different mediums and in different places. A lot of thought and decision making are involved in the artist’s creative process. Some artists want to create mysteries, others fantasies and others want to make their messages clear and understood before they put them in a gallery. To avoid misunderstanding, loss of confidence, lack of communication or a scandal, artists sometimes self – censor.  However, those, self – censored artworks may be viewed as masterpieces by other people.

      What I am looking for in this show are pieces that have been self-censored, unfinished, discarded, damaged, hated or thought to be not good enough to be shown in a gallery. All mediums are welcome! Entry Fee:The fee is $35-non-members $25 for hob’art members ~ for 1 – 4 works. Entry fees are non-refundable.

DonSichler_Sun_Net, Don Sichler’s goal as a photographer is to help people find beauty where they least expect it. In this collection of Digitally Enhanced Photographs, “Reflecting on Trees,” he explores the symbol as it affects our culture and language. Don uses the camera to record an image, and then he expands and deepens the final print with the resources of the computer. JanetHollander_ Beverly _RoadFor Janet Kravetz Hollander, her hand is the principal art tool. These drawings reveal the distinctive gestures and visions by which the physical world is experienced. The pictures in Arbor Day are of trees from places Janet has lived or has dreamed about.

          contentTEDsalon2 This week at hob’art Gallery: TEDxHoboken Salon Wednesday, March 20, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT) TEDxHoboken is the first event of its kind to hit THIS side of the Hudson River.

          Our theme is Infinite Horizons. Think about it… the word “infinity” in and of itself is capable of beckoning so many questions from within. Some of us look to the horizon and want to know what lies beyond. Those of us who do, we are the travelers, the adventurers; we are those who walk toward to the horizon which we see, always looking for another one to reach and explore. We are the ones who recognize that there are indeed an infinite amount of horizons.

          The TEDxHoboken team will be hosting related mixers, events and TED simulcasts this year. Get excited for TEDxHoboken by attending our unique events and experiences. Sign up to be in the know at www.TEDxHoboken.com.

          In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxHoboken, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxHoboken event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

            Brushstrokes and Grain

            Artist Reception

            Saturday, March 2 and 5-8 PM

            Brushstrokes and Grain” features artwork by Joe Gilmore and Tom Egan at the hob’art gallery in Hoboken.

            JoeGilmore_SpiritualintimacyInTheHome

            Joe Gilmore describes his series as a lighthearted look at physical and spiritual intimacy within the home, which was created in the 8 days he spent without power in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy. During that time, the artist reflected on two very important lessons. They were the importance of nesting, and what people do for fun in a blackout. The artwork in this show is the offspring of this period of reflection.

            EscapeVelocity

            Tom Egan’s photography is part of a long term project to document New York City’s underground club scene, in particular the Burning Man subculture. Regular parties that spring up throughout Manhattan and it’s boroughs are showplaces for outrageous clothes, exciting performances and flamboyant personalities. This set of photos represents a series of moments captured in 2012.

            Warning: This art exhibit features images with sexual content that may not be appropriate for children of any age group.

            3rdsundaysFebruary 17th – hob’art artists Roslyn Rose, Liz Cohen, Don Sichler and Starr Tucker-Ortega will speak about their art on Sunday, February 17th in the gallery during the {3rd Sundays} gallery walk. Please stop by and meet the artist from our latest show “Archaeology of Color”.

            Archeology of Color relates to dialogues between artists and the power of color in artwork, including the freeing of color from objective context to become the subject itself. Layering and collage techniques in some of the artworks examine the idea of remembrances inspired by changes in light and hue.The exhibition will close that evening.
