LIZ COHEN LESSONS AT HOB’ART GALLERY
WATER COLOR IN THE STYLE OF AGNES MARTIN
On, Thursday, June 16, 2016, Hoboken artist and art teacher Liz Cohen will be teaching a two hour water color class inspired by the minimalist artist Agnes Martin’s work. Agnes Martin was a very introspective abstract expressionist whose work has been described as an “essay in discretion, inwardness and silence”.
Participants will get to experience the “zen” of painting by looking at, discussing, and then painting their own beautiful images using the style and techniques of this very talented artist.
The class will be held at hob’art gallery, e 208, The Monroe Center, 720 Monroe St., Hoboken, NJ 07030 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. There is free parking in the back and it is right at the 8th St. Light Rail stop.
All supplies will be provided. A small fee of $10 per person will cover the cost of materials. Donations to the gallery to help with operating expenses will also be gratefully accepted.

Portrait of an Artist: Ibou Ndoye
Documentary Video Profile of Artist, Ibou Ndoye.
Senegal, West Africa / Jersey City, New Jersey
Directed & Edited by: Corey Andrew Powell & Jason Carey
Cameraman: Jason Carey
Born in West Africa’s most progressive capital city, Dakar, Senegal, glass-painting artist Ibrahima Ndoye has combined modernism and traditionalism to create a style unique to himself. Ibrahima, commonly known as “Ibou,” grew up as the oldest child of a family of four boys in the suburbs of Dakar. Ibou’s mother made her living as a dressmaker while his grandmother worked as a tie-dye artist. Regularly surrounded by colorful African textiles and fabrics, it is not surprising that Ibou says he “socialized with art and cohabited with colors” from a very young age.
Open dialogue on education, the arts and social change.
Producers: Claudia Canasto & John Bredin. A dialogue with Hoboken artists “Hob’art”.

Roy Kinzer has exhibited extensively and received the prestigious Pollock-Krasner award 2004. He has completed numerous commissions, the most recent the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, in 2011. Roy was certified as a Golden Artist Colors WAP in 2005. He has an M.F.A. (Vermont College) and a Certificate of Art (Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art).

Jersey City artist Ibou Ndoye, best known for his African-style art, will team up with his fellow hob’art artist collective member and aesthetic complement, Hoboken artist Liz Cohen for a new mixed-media show in Paterson. Ibou, a Senegal native who moved to America in 2001, loves sharing his culture with local artists and art lovers. For example, he has taught he trademark glass painting techniques to artists in both Jersey City and Hoboken and even to guests at the Hoboken Shelter. “I am a story teller who uses the visual imagery of my life in Senegal and my new life in America to tell the idea that art is universal and that art is for everyone,” he says. “I like to mix up the traditional African perspective with what I experience here in America to make fresh new images. I am always trying to make a parallel between two cultures and see where I find myself. Here in America, you meet people from all backgrounds from all over the world and there’s a lot of things we share in common.” His co-exhibitor Cohen, on the other hand, is influenced by other native cultures. “For years I have been fascinated by the art forms of the indigenous people of the earth, in particular, the Aboriginal people of Australia,” she says. “The colors and symbol system I have created in my works are directly influenced by the art of the Aboriginal culture and other traditional artists I have met in Central and South America, the Caribbean and Ghana and Nigeria.” Ndoye, who lives in the Journal Square area, says that sometimes people mistake his work for Cohen’s and vice versa. “I like that we almost use the same colors and African textile designs, a lot of patterns, but sometimes people don’t know which is which. As an artist I believe in cultural fusion, but not cultural confusion. Our work is more about culture fusion and getting rid of the confusion existent all over the world,” he says. Their show, “Mixed Up in the Mixed Up Media” will be on view at the Art Factory, 70 Spruce St., Paterson, through Dec. 31. A reception will be held on Sunday, Dec. 9, from 4 pm to 6 pm.
