“Exit Through The Gift Shop” Art Movie Night at hob’art gallery Hoboken July 11 2013 at 7pm

Here is a new event coming from the hob’art gallery at the Monroe Center with the first installment of “Art Movie Night” on July 11, 2013. This event is free but donations are encouraged to keep this program going forward….

FIRST HOB’ART ART MOVIE NIGHT

“EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP”

Hoboken Art Movie Night 7-11-2013 at Monroe Center
On July 11, 2013 at 7 pm, the hob’art gallery, 720 Monroe Street, #E208, Hoboken, NJ will offer free admission to it’s first Art Movie Night, to be followed by a discussion session. Donations will be gratefully accepted to help hob’art gallery to continue this program of outreach to the community. The first picture to be shown is “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” The gallery plans to hold monthly movie evenings in this beautiful gallery at the Monroe Art Center.

The New Yorker magazine called the movie, “A wild ride of a film. You will be laughing helplessly.” It is the story of how an eccentric French shop keeper and amateur film maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, the infamous street artist, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner. The film will inspire a conversation about art in America and particularly the neighborhoods of Hoboken and the larger metropolitan area. Artists, art lovers, and anyone looking for a stimulating evening will not want to miss seeing this movie.

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. The gallery thanks the Monroe Art Center for their support of hob’art gallery.

The selected artists are congratulated by hob’art gallery for their artistic inspiration. Olga Guerra’s digital montage and Liz Cohen’s mixed media sculpture display unique uses of these mediums. Miriam Untoria and Roslyn Rose show a mastery of unusual juxtapositions in their intriguing assemblages. Photographers Pauline Chernichaw and Don Sichler chronicle hauntingly beautiful locales. Geraldine Gaines creates large masterful wood carvings.

Learn how the insights we acquire from the plastic arts can be applied in other areas of our lives. Talbot will also demonstrate a number of the technical innovations which are discussed in his book “Collage: A New Approach.” Talbot is a leading artist in the this field. His works have been shown at the National Academy,  MOMA, and other museums in the U.S. and Europe. He is the developer of a new collage technique which eliminates wet adhesives from the collage-assembly process. This technique, allows greater spontaneity, more precise placement of materials, and at the same time eliminates wrinkling and allows collages to be composed and then “glued down” without dis-assembly.

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.

Artists’ Reception: Saturday, February 2, 2013 – 5-8pm

On Saturday, January 13, 2013 an exhibition, “Archeology of Color”, will open at the hob’art gallery, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ. Members of the gallery will present artwork in the mediums of painting, collage and photography. The exhibit will be open to the public from January 13 to February 17 and a reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, February 2, 5-8pm.

During the Sunday Gallery Walks on January 20 and February 17, there will be talks by artists about their work. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.

Archeology of Color relates to dialogues between artists and the power of color in artwork, including the freeing of color from objective context to become the subject itself. Layering and collage techniques in some of the artworks examine the idea of remembrances inspired by changes in light and hue. The artists exhibiting their work in this exhibition, Liz Cohen, Pauline Chernichaw, Don Sichler, Constance Ftera, Meredeth Turshen, Janet Kolstein, Roslyn Rose, Starr Tucker-Ortega, Tom Egan, Ann Kinney, Erich Heinemann, Howard Berelson and Ibou Ndoye, also use their expertise to symbolize memories that express movements in time.

Mile Square Theatre Presents It’s A Wonderful Life December 6-23 2012

Filed under: Hoboken,Monroe Center,Theater — Tags: , , , — TheBoken @ 9:55 AM

Mile Square Theatre in Hoboken will revive their production of It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play from December 6 – 23. Read below for details…

Mile Square Theatre Presents the Holiday Favorite
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

Celebrating their 10th Season, Mile Square Theatre–Hudson County’s leading professional Equity company–will present a revival of It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play from December 6 through December 23 at the Monroe Theatrespace (located at 720 Monroe St. in Hoboken, 2nd Floor).
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry offers an enchanting theatrical take on Frank Capra’s classic holiday film, as Mile Square Theatre transforms its space into a 1940’s radio station, and presents this American favorite in front of a live studio audience. NewJersey.com called last season’s production of It’s A Wonderful Life, “…in a word, wonderful!” Five actors perform dozens of characters as well as produce the sound effects in Capra’s timeless tale of individualism, optimism, and community.
It’s a Wonderful Life is our holiday gift to our audience,” states Chris O’Connor, MST’s Artistic Director. “We hope to make the play a lasting holiday tradition. It’s a play that parents can bring their children to, or it can be a great date play as well.”
Mile Square Theatre, called “…the treasure of Hoboken,” by Peter Filichia in the Star-Ledger, has put together a cast that includes Martin Landry (Twilight: The Musical, Off-Broadway at New World Stages) as George Bailey, and Eliza Simpson (recently seen in MST’s box-office smash Go, Dog. Go!) as Mary Bailey. The ensemble includes Whitney Brown (The Last Goodbye, Broadway workshop), and MST regulars Charlie Kevin (God of Carnage), and Andy Nogasky (7th Inning Stretch). Mary Kate Burke, former artistic director for Pennsylvania’s Millbrook Playhouse, will direct the production.
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, produced by Mile Square Theatre at the Monroe Theatrespace (located at 720 Monroe St. in Hoboken, 2nd Floor), runs from December 6 through December 23, Thursday through Saturday at 8pm, and matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 3pm. 
  • Tickets are available online at (www.milesquaretheatre.org), and at the Monroe Theatrespace box office, or by calling 201-683-7014 for reservations.
  • Tickets are $20. Students and seniors, $12.
  • On Thursday, December 13 @ 8pm, there will be a special PAY WHAT YOU WILL performance.  Audience members can pay whatever they wish.
