REVERIE is defined as a daydream, or the condition of being lost in thought, adding a state of consciousness to dreams. We chose reverie as our show title to depict the transition from imagination into reality, and the artists were challenged to render their visions in their own unique way.

Artists’ Reception: Saturday, August 25, 5-8 pm. On Saturday, August 18, from 12 to 5 pm, an exhibition, ‘REVERIE’, will open at the hob’art co-operative gallery, 720 Monroe Street, Suite E208, Hoboken, NJ. Three members of the gallery will present artwork in the mediums of handmade paper, digital montage, and mixed media. The exhibition will be open to the public from August 18 to September 9, 2012, and a reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, August 25, from 5-8 pm. An Artists’ Talk will be held on Sunday, August 19, from 2-4 pm. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday, 12 to 5 pm and by appointment.

Heather Corey: Paper flower (detail)

Heather Corey is a New York Metro-Area based artist inspired by the feminine form. She combines inspiration from a wide range of disciplines; from modern movement expressions by fashion designer David Koma to the time-tested visual queues of Egyptian and Aztec structure. Corey’s most recent relief series features her trademark sculpted paper roses and emphasizes feminine motion. Her creations often focus on dramatic coloring to create a textural experience that strives to seduce the viewer.

Janet Kolstein: Postcard from Budapest.

Janet Kolstein’s giclee prints are the product of assemblage, digital photography, and computer manipulation. Years of material acquired from house, garage, and estate sales and scanned into the computer add to the composition. The old postcards, photos, pages torn from books, etc. allow Kolstein to play with the notion of narrative and character.

Erik Attia: Autumn Breeze

Erik Attia’s masks have been displayed in several boutiques and galleries including Cirque du Soleil internationally, HPGRP Galleries in NYC, and Maskarade in New Orleans. Through mask making Attia is able to combine his creativity, love of wildlife, and human culture into his artwork. His masks are airbrushed and/or hand painted, adorned with natural and dyed feathers, genuine Austrian crystals, and a variety of gems and stones.
