Filed under: Art Gallery,art show,Hoboken — Tags: , , , , , — TheBoken @ 11:15 AM

Here is some exciting news from the Barsky Gallery in Hoboken located at 49 Harrison Street…..

Barsky Gallery Opens Its Private Gallery Space

For Upcoming Holiday and  Corporate Events  
Located in the heart of Hoboken, New Jersey, the Barsky Gallery is now available for private bookings to accommodate corporate parties and upcoming holiday events for organizations throughout the New York metropolitan area.

Barsky Gallery Hoboken Exterior
Hoboken, New Jersey – The Barsky Gallery, a contemporary art gallery just minutes away from the Holland Tunnel, is announcing that the gallery is now booking holiday events for corporations and organizations that are based in the metropolitan area. With contemporary art providing incredible atmospheric decor, the gallery is a unique place to hold corporate holiday functions, fundraisers and other special events.

“Being surrounded by masterful artwork is reason enough to host an event here,” states Al Barsky, owner of the Barsky Gallery, “but the art also provides a warm, exciting atmosphere that’s conducive to great conversation and social interaction.”

Barsky also appreciates the added exposure that private events offer to the gallery’s artists, as it generates more interest in the paintings and sculptures that are on display. The Barsky Gallery is offering the space to be used for anniversary celebrations, birthday parties and catered cocktail events, as well as bridal and baby showers. The artistic venue is working with some of the area’s top caterers, vendors and party planners to provide flawless events during the holiday season.

“We’re always pleased when a space is as engaging as our food, whether it is a wine tasting or a film screening,” said Jenna Cuccia, event planner of Lodi-based Joseph Cuccia Catering. “The Barsky Gallery is an exceptional choice, thanks to the dramatic backdrop, its great location and the energy in the room.”

With an urban, artful and unpretentious style, the Barsky Gallery is centrally located with easy access to highways, bridges and mass transit. Owner Al Barsky decided that the street-level gallery at Chambord Place should also be for lovers announcing an engagement, lecturers holding educational events or fundraisers for well-respected organizations in the region.

“Who doesn’t want to think outside the box and host seventy of their closest friends, family or business associates at a unique venue in an upscale urban outskirt of NYC?” asked Barsky. “Art is much more than paint or clay, and this gallery deserves to be much more than a basic venue for beautiful pieces of art.”

For booking information, a floor plan and additional details about holding an upcoming holiday event at the gallery, visit www.hobokenvenue.com or call 888.465.4949. The Barsky Gallery is located at 49 Harrison Street in Hoboken, New Jersey 07030.

Mike Podhorzer Photography Opening Reception at D’s Soul Full Cafe Sunday September 8th 3-5pm

Mike Podhorzer - D's Soul Full Cafe Hoboken - Photography New Mexico

At  D’s Soul Full Cafe, 918 Willow Avenue,  in Hoboken New Jersey Mike Podhorzer will be the host of an opening reception for his photography exhibit tomorrow Sunday, Sept 8 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM; His photos will be on display at the Cafe from Sept. 6th through Oct. 3rd.  The reception will also feature live music by Debby Schwartz.

Photographer Bio: Mike Podhorzer grew up in Manalapan, NJ and after 26 wonderful years of suburban life, decided to move to beautiful Hoboken, where he currently resides. Mike would have never guessed that photography would be a part of his future. When he was younger, he used to go on annual family vacations and complain as his shutterbug parents would continually pull the car over to take photos of the stunning scenery being driven past. Then everything changed in 2008 when a business trip required Mike to travel to San Francisco, providing the motivation to purchase his very first camera. This event marked the beginning of his photographic journey.

Mike specializes in macro flower photography and nature landscape scenes. Although relatively new to the art scene, Mike has had his work displayed at a popular chain of tea cafes in New York City. View Mike’s entire photography portfolio by visiting his online gallery, Pod’s Pics, at www.PodsPics.com.

“Arbor Day” March 29-April 21, 2013 hob’art gallery

Artists’ Reception: Saturday, March 30, 6-8pm

Gallery Talk: Sunday, April 21, 3:30pm 

Monroe Art Center 720 Monroe Street, E208, Hoboken, NJ 07030

Thursday – Sunday 1-5, and by appointment

On Saturday, March 29, 2013, an exhibition, “Arbor Day,” will open at the hob-art gallery, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ. Janet Kravetz Hollander and Don Sichler, members of the gallery, will present artwork in the mediums of photography, drawing, and prints. The exhibition will be open to the public through Sunday, April 21 and a reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, March 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. On the April 21st Gallery Walk Day, both artists will talk about the artwork on view starting at 3:30pm. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.

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.

For 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.

Gallery information can be obtained on the website www.hob-art.org and from the director, France Garrido, 201-319-1504 or director@hob-art.org.

Reception: Saturday, March 2, 6-8pm

Artists’ Talks: Gallery Walk Sunday, March 17, 3:30pm

Hours: Thursday thru Sunday, 1-5pm and by Appointment

On February 28, 2013, an exhibition, Brushstrokes & Grain, will open at the hob’art gallery, Monroe Art Center, 720 Monroe Street, #E208, Hoboken, NJ. Two members of the gallery, Joe Gilmore and Tom Egan, will present artwork in the mediums of painting and photography. The exhibit will be open to the public from February 28 to March 24, 2013, and a reception for the show to meet the artists, will be held on, Saturday, March 2, 6 – 8pm. Gallery hours are Thursday thru Sunday, 1 – 5pm and by appointment. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.

The Brushstrokes and Grain show emphasizes the contrasting styles and mediums, by the two exhibition artists. Joe Gilmore’s paintings are a lighthearted look at physical and spiritual intimacy within the home, inspired by the eight days he spent without power in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy. During that time, the artist reflected on two very important lessons: the importance of nesting and what people do during a blackout. Tom Egan’s photography is part of his long term project to document New York City’s underground club scene, especially 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. The exhibited images represent a series of moments captured in 2012.

Gallery information can be obtained on the website www.hob-art.org and from the Director, France Garrido, 201-319-1504 or director@hob-art.org.

Process of Creating Children’s Book, “Meadowlands”

Sunday, Feb. 10, 4 pm - free

Location: Hoboken Historical Museum, 1301 Hudson St., (201) 656-2240

Meadowlands- Hoboken Museum 2-10-2013

Artist and author Thomas Yezerski interprets the fascinating and inspiring history of the rehabilitation of the Meadowlands swamp in an engaging children’s book, Meadowlands, A Wetlands Survival Story, (2011, Farrar, Straus &Giroux). The Museum is pleased to present an exhibit of the original watercolor-and-ink paintings that comprise the book, which opened Jan. 27, and will be on view in the Upper Gallery until March 10.

Today, Sunday, Feb. 10, at 4 pm, he returns to discuss the 10 year process from concept to publication of his popular book. He meticulously researched the history of the place, and also sketched hundreds of images of the biodiversity of the species that once teemed in the tidal marshlands and are now returning, after a concerted effort by federal, state, and local authorities and environmental activist groups. The artist shows the landscape from startling points of view, sure to change your own view of the natural treasure at the edge of our county!

The exhibit is made possible through funding from the Hudson County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs/Tourism Development, Thomas A. DeGise, County Executive, and the Board of Chosen Freeholders. Additional support for this exhibit and programming comes from Applied Companies, John Wiley & Sons, and the Rockefeller Development Group.
