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….

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.

Explore the nature and implications of the creative process with internationally known collage artist Jonathan Talbot. 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.

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.

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.

As co-creator and former head writer of The Daily Show and Air America Radio co-founder, Lizz Winstead is one of the top political satirists in America.

“Invigorating, infuriating, and hilarious.”— Patton Oswalt

“Searching and lively … and moving.”— The New York Times

“Hilarious collection of very personal essays.”—Sarah Silverman

About Group Sets:

Stand up, improv, and then some, will keep you laughing and feeling good all night long.

The Final Edition is sizzling satire in the tradition of National Lampoon, Spinal Tap, Spy Magazine and South Park. With contributors from Comedy Central, The Onion, NPR, it’s a website, a radio show, a live event, a production house, and a mad dream. The whole insane thing is led by veteran satirist, original editor of National Lampoon, Editor-in-Chief of Spy and star of Spinal Tap (band manager Ian Faith), Tony Hendra. “Nihilistic and deeply silly.”—Vanity Fair, “Funny juggernauts.”—The Atlantic

Murderfist is going to get loud and get weird and our comedy may just help the pain of being alive. Winner of the 2010 ECNY Award for Best Sketch Comedy Group and named by the Village Voice as the “Best Sketch Comedy Group in New York.”

Reformed Whores is what you get when you combine an accordion, a ukulele, and two southern belles who’ve washed away their sins but forgot to rinse out their mouths. The musical comedy duo can’t quite clean up their act in this knee slapping, toe tapping, hoedown. “Very funny.”—Time Out Chicago

Team Submarine puts a new twist on the classic two-man act. Featured at the Just For Laughs comedy festival, part of the Mr. Show reunion event, and nominated for an ECNY award, these geniuses are two of comedy’s hottest rising stars.
