The Hoboken Historical Museum invites you to the Opening Reception for our latest Upper Gallery exhibit, “Unclassical: Contemporary Still Lifes by Deborah Pohl.” The reception will take place at 1301 Hudson Street in Hoboken on Sunday, September 11 from 2 – 5 p.m.
The artist will be present, and refreshments will be served. On Friday, September 9 at 7pm, the Museum will also be livestreaming an Artist Talk with Deborah and Museum Director Bob Foster at “hobokenmuseum” on YouTube and Facebook.
Deborah Pohl was awarded a 2022 Fellowship for painting from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Her work has been shown in dozens of solo and group shows for over 30 years. Of this latest series, she says, “My paintings occupy the category of still life while working against the genre’s expectations. Classic still life objects, like fruit and drapery, are combined with overlooked and often discarded relics of our everyday lives. I use traditional oil painting methods in order to beautify the ignored and mundane.” www.deborahpohl.com/
Deborah Pohl has been a proud and involved Hoboken artist since 1996. Deborah’s connection with the Hoboken artist community began with figure drawing classes at the Liquid Lounge. She later started working out of an art studio in the Neumann Leather Building and has been displaying her work through the years in the city’s local art spaces and citywide arts tours.
