Liz Cohen

On Saturday, October 27, 2012, hob'art artists are inviting everyone to get into a spooky mood at a Halloween Gala Party and Silent Auction. The witching hours are from 8-11pm. Create your craziest costume ever and come on out to the hob'art Gallery, Gallery E 208, The Monroe Center for the Arts, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ. For a $3.00 donation at the door, hob'art will provide all creepy, crawly costumed and un-costumed guests with food, wine and live music by the world renowned Jim Pellegrino Jazz Trio (known to have played with Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, the Temptations, and Jimmy Heath).

Party goers will also be able to bid in our first silent auction. The hob'art artists are donating 9X9 original artworks to be auctioned in a "Square Show" during this event. The auction proceeds will enable hob'art to continue having high quality art exhibitions, art classes, workshops, lectures, and discussion groups.

Just in time for the Halloween Party, hob'art gallery will sponsor a mask making class on October 25, starting at 6:30pm with Erik Attia to help each participant apply their creativity to the making of a Venetian-style mask. Using the age old techniques of the Italian ‘Mascherari,’ the mask makers, Attia will show you how he creates masks for the Cirque du Soleil and other famous clientele. A nominal fee of $30 includes a blank papier-mâché mask base, paints and assorted ribbons and feathers. All you need to bring is a paintbrush and your imagination! Please contact Jodi Zulueta at eldwenne@yahoo.com or 201-780-7952 to register for this class.
Contact Liz Cohen at 201-424-1275 or conchart@aol.com for further information about the Halloween Gala. Visit www.hob-art.org to learn more about this non-profit organization.
The hob’art gallery thanks Hershy Weiss and Basad Realty for their continued support of hob'art Gallery.

winter wonderland call for art

Winter Wonderland Weekend this December as part of the JC friday planned for December 7th. 
Last year id asked for only jersey city pictures, but this year i want people to just go wild!....photos, paintings, collage,
sculpture and crafts all revolving around winter, the spirit of the holidays and the closing of the old year and 
the welcoming of the new one.  Be creative and be enthusiastic; the feel of the event last year really warmed 
my heart after a year of ups and downs and i love being able to spend time with the folks in my community 
this way and invite you to my home to share some holiday cheer before the season gets so busy : ) 

I will have to submit all the info to Art House productions by October 25th in order to be listed in the pamphlet
for the December 7th JC Friday events, so please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to participate.
I won't need to have your work in-hand until Friday November 30th, so that is the official due date, but if you'd
like your name potentially included in the JC Friday materials, i must know by October 25th.  

I am hoping to make something special myself to include as part of the show!

As we did last year there will be a childrens toy drive bin for a local pre-school program on Ocean Avenue and 
a raffle to win prizes from local Greenville businesses as well as seasonal snacks to enjoy with each other!
