hob'art co-op art gallery

Eleven years ago Liz Cohen approached a number of local artists with the idea of establishing a cooperative association. The mission statement included, “The gallery itself would be a moving exhibition until a permanent home is found.  Local businesses can lend their support by providing space so that our reach may be as forthcoming as our expectations would enjoy.”

Today hob’art cooperative gallery, with 56 members from all of North Jersey, is able to announce that this goal has been met. Our new permanent home is at the Monroe Center for the Arts.

The first exhibition will open in February with the public invited to a grand celebration of this wonderful occasion.
Liz Cohen, President of hob’art gallery, lives and works in Hoboken. Her solo exhibitions Walkabout at the Hoboken Historical Museum and Mother Lore at Ceres Gallery in NYC have recently closed. She has curated many exhibits for the association both in Hudson County and other venues.
France Garrido, the new Director of the gallery, is a professional curator. She is currently co-curator of Visionaries, a show to open in 2012 at a CUNY gallery. She is also on the staff of the Department of Education of the Newark Museum and Urban Arts at the Monroe Art Center. Her artwork is included in the ‘Visionary Art Yearbook 2010-2011 by Otto Rapp and the 2009 ‘Lexikon der Phantastischen Künstler’, a compilation of International Artists. Ms. Garrido lives and works in Weehawken.
