Artists from Hoboken’s hob’art gallery and Pro Arts Jersey City break the invisible wall that historically divides these two cities in this fun and artistic collaboration. “DIALOGUE” runs from July 1 – July 21 2018 at hob’art gallery, The Monroe Center for the Arts, 720 Monroe St. E208, Hoboken. Artist Reception is on Sunday July 1, 3-5 pm. Gallery Hours: Thurs-Fri 4-7pm, Sat 1-5pm

The exhibition has been curated by Liz Ndoye and Mollie Thonneson.

A panel discussion on Collaboration will be held on July 10 2018, 6:30 -8:30 pm.
Panelists: Samuel Pott, Founder and Creative Director of Nimbus Dance Works, Anne Percoco, Independent Artist, Andrea McKenna, Visual Arts Director at Art House Productions.

Hoboken and Jersey City artists have been working in close proximity for many years and although they coexist there always seems to be an invisible wall that keeps them apart. Is it geographic? Is it demographic? Is it something historic that has become part of their genetic code?

Whatever the cause, artists know that there is strength in numbers. Everyone can be more inspired, creative, and effective by working together!

Following a Meet and Greet afternoon, paired off artists created their impressions and inspirations of each other on canvas. This is a show of the creative results.
