The hob’art gallery congratulates the participating artists Ann Kinney, Carla Cubit, Constance Ftera, Donna Doherty, Don Sichler, France Garrido, Ibou Ndoye, Janet Kolstein, Jean-Paul Picard, Liz Cohen, Meredeth Turshen, Miriam Untoria, Roslyn Rose, Alberte Bernier, Simin Vaswani, and Starr Tucker-Ortega for their artistic inspiration.

The Hoboken Gallery Walk is today from 2-6pm. Here is the updated list which now excludes Gallery 1200 which was really never an active gallery in the first place but more of a political HQ for the political aspirations of 2nd Ward Council woman Beth Mason. It is refreshing to see the politics become decoupled from art as it should be.


Below is the updated lineup:

Arbor Day Exhibit at hob’art Gallery in Hoboken March 29 – April 21,2013 – Reception March 30 6-8pm

Here is the latest upcoming art exhibit at the Monroe Center presented by the hob’art gallery….

“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.

On October 13, 2012 an exhibition,”Les Poupees = The Dolls” will open at the hob’art Gallery, Gallery E 208 at the Monroe Center for the Arts, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030. Willie Baez, Liz Cohen and Ibou Ndoye, three hob’art member artists, will present mixed media art works. The exhibit will be open to the public from October 13 until November 4, 2012 and a reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, October 13, 2012 from 6-8 pm. The artists thank The Monroe Center for the Arts and the hob’art Gallery for their support of this exhibition.

Here are some thoughts by the artists about their work for this show: Willie Baez, "I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of creating dolls out of "anything" but I am especially inspired by dolls that have either mysterious meaning or spiritual rituals attached". Liz Cohen states, “For years I have been fascinated by the roles dolls play in our culture and in all cultures – the dolls I make come from a culture all their own!” Ibou Ndoye’s thoughts on dolls, “Dolls are very present in African culture, they are more than toys for children. They are ritual objects that have spiritual , magical and traditional purposes , My contemporary art dolls are deprived of all these values,they are just important social, aesthetic objects.”

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.
