Lou Carbone exhibit opens at Hoboken Historical Museum

Lou Carbone exhibit opens Saturday, May 7 at 2pm

The Hoboken Historical Museum announces the opening of an exhibit by Hoboken master painter Lou Carbone on Saturday, May 7 with an opening reception with the artist from 2 – 5pm. “COVID” consists of 25 16 x 20 acrylic paintings Lou did under quarantine. Lou Carbone’s “COVID” in the Museum’s Upper Gallery runs from Saturday, May 7 until Sunday, July 3.

With diverse influences that include cubism, surrealism and the Mexican muralists, Lou’s paintings are a series of pictorial spaces borne of personal experience as filtered through dreams and illusions. The images of anonymous figures in common settings depict ritual happening combined with feelings of sexual tension that are woven with a quiet elegant motion.
