An array of artists and mediums have come together, creating a breathtaking balance of mediums and ideas in the exhibition, Balancing Act, at the hob’art gallery, 720 Monroe Street, E208, Hoboken, NJ. Heather Williams, has curated the exhibit with the idea of connecting it to Black History Month. The show will open to the public on Saturday, February 8, 2013 and close on March 2nd. A reception to meet the artists will be held in the evening of the 8th, 6-8pm with music by DJ Michael Womack aka DJ Hells Yeah. He has provided sounds over the years at popular locations in New Jersey and New York City, including LITM in Jersey City. During the monthly Gallery Walk on Sunday, February 16th, at 3:30pm, the artists will discuss their work and welcome questions from guests. A closing party for the exhibition will be held on Saturday, March 1st, 6-8pm. Gallery hours are Thursday to Sunday, 1 to 5pm and by appointment. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.

During the act of creation, artists are constantly deciding how to balance the medium with the message. Photographers, Jim Legge and Don Sichler use the camera as their way of telling a story of a moment in time while France Garrido uses mixed medium to explore the balance between deciding what is important to both the individual and the community. Liz Cohen and Ibou Ndoye collaborated, using reverse painting of window panes, to shed light on the amazing ability of art to break down barriers of race and culture. Utilizing painting and drawing Alberte Bernier and Kristin Pereira, engage the viewers with the canvas. Donovan Nelson, Issa Sow and Lauryn Ahearn exhibit rich abstract images and vibrant colors to express a range of ideas about new birth, relationships and escapism. Geraldine Gaines refers to African ancestry as she carves her images in to discarded doors. Heather Williams displays her clay sculptures, including one which sustained damage during Super Storm Sandy but still maintains its stature.

Gallery information can be obtained on the website www.hob-art.org and from the Director, France Garrido, at 201-319-1504 or director@hob-art.org. Free parking is available at the rear of the building on Jackson Street.

Thursday, January 9, 2014
7:00pm – 9:00pm

133 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ

Jay Boucher is surrounded by trucks. Trailers, dump trucks, delivery vans, garbage trucks; day and night they rumble and rattle past his ground floor studio in Hoboken, NJ. Seeing life and personality in these utilitarian machines, Jay decided to render them in the fluid medium of watercolor.

Jay spent much of the 2000′s as a designer for MTV.com. He currently creates games and animations for the foundation of renowned illustrator Ezra Jack Keats and exhibits art work throughout the northern NJ area.

Jay holds a BFA in Illustration from Virginia Commonwealth University and an MFA in Photography & Related Media from School of Visual Arts, NYC. View his portfolio at jayboucher.com.

StrangeBedfellowsPosterONLINE2

Local Jersey City artist and illustrator, Ana Benaroya, is curating a gallery show at Gallery 313, at 313 3rd Street in Jersey City. The show, entitled “Strange Bedfellows” will feature work from other local artists such as Bruno Nadalin, Ahu Sulker, Marina Kharkover, and Amy Tamayo.

The show will open on Saturday, September 14th from 5-8pm. Snacks and refreshments will be served.

The show will feature work that is mainly narrative and the pieces will be hung in such a way as to emphasize a continuous storyline between all the works. The viewer will have the opportunity to question why certain pieces were hung side by side and connect the images to create their own narrative. Though each artist has a different style and utilizes different subject matter, there will be one continuous string that ties all the pieces together – hence the show title, “Strange Bedfellows.”

The inspiration for the show concept came from a visit to the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, where the work is hung in a similar manner.

AnaBenaroya_DapperMan

Ana Benaroya’s work has been honored by The Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, and the PRINT Regional Design Annual. Some of her clients include Lincoln Center, The New York Times, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Panera Bread, The Cooper Union, Bloomberg, Cinelli, Simon & Schuster, and many more. Her paintings and drawings have shown in Portland, Paris, Washington DC, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Her colorful work is filled with frenetic linework, powerful shapes, and awkward massive human bodies whose gender boundaries are often ambiguous.

Marina Kharkover teaches art to children in Bushwick and Crown Heights in Brooklyn. Her colorful collages and expressive painterly style is extremely raw and full of powerful emotion. She has done work for The Brooklyn Rail, the Jackson Heights Poetry Festival, and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Her paintings and drawings have shown in the Deitch Gallery in New York and Migaro Gallery in Olympos, Greece. (http://www.marinakharkover.com )

Ahu Sulker works as a textile and graphics designer in New York. The voluptuous and sensual women in her drawings tempt the viewer yet also keep them at a distance. Each drawing has an incredible attention to detail and incorporates beautiful pattern-work. The graphics she creates as a designer have appeared on apparel sold in Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, Walmart, Target, and Aeropostale.

BrunoNadalin

Bruno Nadalin was most recently the Artist-in-Residence at Bryant Park in New York where he created countless paintings and drawings of the park and its’ visitors. His work has a timeless feel and reveals Bruno’s close observation of the world that surrounds him. He creates a velvety world that embraces the beauty in imperfection.

AmyTamayo_SquidWoman

Amy Tamayo’s work focuses on a decorative study of the human body with subtle nods to an irrepressible sexuality. Her pieces are delicate and poetic and ask the viewer to consider their own physicality while viewing the work.

“Arc of Vision”
August 2 – August 25
hob’art gallery
Monroe Art Center
720 Monroe Street, E208, Hoboken, NJ 07030
Thursday through Sunday, 1 to 5 pm and by appointment.
Artists’ Reception: Saturday, August 3, 2013, 5pm to 7pm
Gallery Talk: Sunday, August 18, 3:30 pm
On August 2 an exhibition, “Arc of Vision,” will open at the hob’art gallery, 720 Monroe Street, #E208, Hoboken, NJ. Susan A. Davis, Janet Kolstein, and Barbara Jacoby will present artwork in the mediums of photography, digital collage, and pastel. The Monroe Center has a parking lot in the rear of the building which is wheelchair-accessible. The exhibit will be open to the public from August 2 to August 25, 2013, and a reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, August 3, from 5 to 7 pm. During Hoboken’s monthly Gallery Walk on August 18, the three artists will speak about their art at 3:30pm. Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, 1 to 5pm, and by appointment. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.
The “Arc of Vision” is an exhibition of recent work by three members of the hob’art gallery who employ diverse mediums and approaches. Each one takes inspiration from our common visual surroundings with a different strategy. The arc of the artists’ vision moves from contemplation of nature, to color-field abstraction or to the artifice of computer manipulation. Photographer Barbara Jacoby displays images that emphasize how life and nature can be viewed in a variety of ways. Susan A. Davis’s gestural abstractions in pastel are concerned with light, color and the suggestion of dimensionality. Janet Kolstein combines her own photographs with found vintage images, creating quirky and ethereal digital collages.
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.

"El Musico", by the Mexican artist Armando Romero

“El Musico”, by the Mexican artist Armando Romero

Clariond Gallery, a new Latin American Fine Art space at the Monroe Center, opens its first exhibition with the work of celebrated Mexican painter Armando Romero on Thursday, June 27 at 6 PM (Suite C 402) with delicious wine and cheese!

The gallery, owned by Mexican art dealer and collector José Clariond, will include in its first show, five paintings and three drawing of  Romero, who has had exhibitions in prestigious galleries in Mexico City, Monterrey (Mexico), Paris, Dallas, Los Angeles and Switzerland, in the last decade.

Romero was born in Mexico City in 1964. He studied and later taught at the National School of Painting, Sculpture and Printmaking, known as “La Esmeralda”. The artist lives and works in Guadalajara, Mexico, and visits New York and Hoboken often.

A neoclectic painter, Romero combines his versions of historic paintings by artists, such as Caravaggio, Goya and Bosh, with irreverent contemporary images, allowing emotion and reason free range. His brilliant intersect of classic art, popular art, popular culture, and youth culture, has gotten him the attention of main critics and experts.

The Romero exhibition is the first of six which will be shown during the 2013-2014 season at Clariond Gallery.

“We are really proud to be part of the dynamic Hoboken art force,” says the owner of the gallery, José Clariond, “and when I scouted places to launch the business in the metropolitan area, I found that this beautiful and historical city was the right one.”

Mr. Clariond adds that his Hoboken gallery will show the work of the most renowned emergent artists from Latin America and the United States. The Clariond Gallery will be open five days a week, from Wednesday to Saturday (12 – 7 PM) and on Sundays (12 – 6 PM.)

 

For those familiar with the figure drawing sessions at PVS Gallery — that has ended. But, don’t pack those art pads away just yet! Sessions are continuing at the same time but at a different location at the Neumann Leather building in Hoboken and with a different host, local artist Joe Velez.

The Downtown Figure Movement is a weekly figure drawing session. The models are encouraged to think outside the box and pose in original, memorable and inspiring ways.

All skill levels are welcome to join. The fee is $10 per session and it’s BYOB and BYO Supplies. So whether you come alone or in a group, you’re going to have a great and productive time!

Tuesdays 7-10pm @ Proto Gallery
