On Saturday, September 15 the exhibition, Alternative Realities will open at the hob’art gallery, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ and continue through October 7th. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, September 15, 5 – 8pm. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday, 12 to 5pm and by appointment. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.

The “Alternative Realities” show brings together three of hob’art’s photographers in a way that contrasts their styles. The emphasis is to highlight how these artists approach a medium in very alternate ways to create a diversity of results.

Long time hob’art member Ann Kinney is searching for the elusive place between the photograph, which captures a moment in time, and the elements of line, form and color. She explores these principles in the places and people she encounters. Tom Egan’s photography combines landscape, fashion and documentation following the local ‘Burning Man’ subculture. This visually explosive scene is thriving in the New York Metropolitan area but is largely unseen by people outside of those who participate. This set of photos will explore the local parties and events as well as the Burning Man festival itself. Don Sichler’s work focuses on finding wild and beautiful images where you least expect it. Don calls the photos in this exhibit “Reflections on Autos.” The extreme distortions of shapes and colors in the photos of automobile will amaze the viewer. This exhibit promises to have something for every art enthusiast with many surprises thrown in.
