'Snug' by Miriam Untoria
HOBOKEN – An opening reception will be held on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for the new hob’art gallery exhibit M&Ms.
M&Ms is an exhibition of exciting new art by two hob’art artists: Meredeth Turshen and Miriam Untoria.
Turshen creates oil paintings on paper that can be interpreted as summery landscapes or read as abstract works. Inspired by Paul Cézanne, the nineteenth century Post-Impressionist painter, Turshen layers delicate oil colors on graphite drawings, giving the work charm and depth.
Miriam Untoria’s acrylic paintings and mixed media pieces are inspired by the human figure, which she examines in multiple settings and contexts. Untoria delves into realistic and fantastic explorations of figures, shapes and hues, creating exciting, provocative canvases.
The exhibit opened Friday Sept. 22 at 720 Monroe St. and will run until Oct. 14.
Gallery Hours are Thursday through Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment. Call (201) 319-1504.
