8 artists display their work

The Hoboken Historical Museum will host an exhibition of Hoboken images created by eight members of the hob’art cooperative gallery from March 3 to April 12, 2009 entitled, “hob’art’s Hoboken.”

The show was created by Roslyn Rose and juried by Robert Foster, Museum Director. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, March 1 from 2 to 5 pm in the Upper Gallery.

On Sunday, March 29, at 4 pm there will be a panel discussion, “Art in a New Era.” Each of the panelists will explain how they have individually used both traditional and modern technology to capture a singular view of our much loved city of Hoboken.

The exhibiting artists include:

  • Elizabeth Cohen, who has been inspired to connect a cherished childhood doll with images of Hoboken.
  • Roslyn Rose blends manipulated images of local scenes with old photographs to suggest moments that may have occurred.
  • Andrea Milo photographs locations that are not typical images of the city.
  • Tom Egan’s pictures of the old piers at night were taken before they were incorporated into community parks.
  • Virginia Parrott’s recent images of Hoboken are a departure from the strictly documentary.
  • Leona Seufert, not a Hoboken resident, is displaying digital collages of architectural aspects of our transit hub, which she views during her frequent visits.
  • Femi Ford painted the scene from her apartment in the North East part of the city as a gift to a man who wanted to see Hoboken again before he died.
  • Sissi Siska creates unique paintings on silk, including a view of the community that honors our memories of 9/11/01.

The Museum is located at 1301 Hudson Street, Hoboken. They can be contacted at 201-656-2240 or at the website: www.hobokenmuseum.org. Museum hours are Tuesday to Thursday, 2 to 7 pm, Fridays, 1 to 5 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays, 12 to 5 pm.
