I am thrilled to be showing my work with the following artists in this four person show. I have shown with Tom Egan and Don Sichler before, both photographers, and always look forward to seeing their latest work. Donna O’Grady’s work is unique combining old tin ceiling tiles with her wonderful paintings.
I have chosen four of my photos for this exhibit that focus on getting up close and personal with the everyday unseen. I will be talking about my work at the Artist Talk on April 17th at 3;30 as a part of the Hoboken Studio Tour.
“Looking Into the Light,” an exhibition of traditional and digital mediums by four artists, will be open to the public from April 1 to 24, 2016 at the hob’art gallery, Monroe Art Center, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken. The artists, Don Sichler, Ann Kinney, and Tom Egan and Donna O’Grady experiment with established painting and photographic mediums to produce avant-garde images. A reception to meet the exhibitors will be held on Saturday, April 2nd, 6-8pm. On Sunday, April 17th at 3:30pm, the artists will talk about their artwork and welcome questions from visitors. Gallery hours are Wednesday 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.
“Looking into the Light,” accurately describes the compatibility of the four artists who are part of the hob’art gallery’s upcoming exhibition. Like four notes blending harmoniously, the thread of abstracted realities and ‘other worldliness’ is immediately apparent although each artist executes their ideas with a different technique.
Don Sichler: Don’s photos in this exhibit are called street art. The images were all found and photographed on his frequent walks around town. Don says he is an artist but he doesn’t create art, he discovers it and records it with his camera.
Ann Kinney: Her images are derived from nature with and underlying current of earth, water, fire, air tempered by human forces. Images that intrigue her, combine shape and color in time and place, which tell the stories of everyday lives. They are the result of her journey during which she has been photographing people and their places. She would like her photographs to serve as springboards for the viewer’s imagination.
Tom Egan: His photos are reinvented landscapes that are created from local parks and scenery in the intensely colored mirrored imagery
Donna O’Grady: Her paintings incorporate antique ceiling tiles that frame her portraits and landscapes. Using underpainting techniques to capture light and atmosphere, her pieces capture mysterious snapshots of the mind.
Gallery Hours: Thursday – Sunday, 1–5pm and by appointment, (201) 683-6252
