“Imagined Realities,” a visually evocative and illuminating exhibition devoted to the recent work of hob’art members Miriam Untoria and Meredeth Turshen, is now open until Nov. 2 at hob’art co-operative gallery, 720 Monroe St., E208, Hoboken. On Saturday, Oct. 11, from 6 to 8 p.m. the public can meet the artists at a reception at the gallery.
In addition, during Hoboken’s monthly Gallery Walk on Sunday, Oct. 19, the artists will speak about their technique and processes at 3:30 p.m.
Regular gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, 1 – 5 p.m., and by appointment.
Miriam Untoria and Meredeth Turshen will present artwork in the mediums of acrylic, oil paint, pastel, mixed media and assemblages.
Each artist draws inspiration from her environment to represent her own imagined realities. Although different in approach, their new work evokes a balance of sensibility and emotion, reality and imagination.
Miriam Untoria uses acrylic paint, collage, small sculptures, and found objects to create emotional depictions of portraits and imaginary existences in two and three dimensions.
Meredeth Turshen is exhibiting new bold, layered, and textured paintings on paper in oil, with traces of pastel and graphite; the compositions evoke energy and movement and radiate light.
Gallery information may be obtained at www.hob-art.org or from gallery director France Garrido, (201) 319-1504 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Monroe Center has a parking lot (complimentary for two hours) located in the rear of the building, which is wheelchair accessible.
