“Women Live” will open on Friday, March 10 and run until Saturday, April 1, 2017. A reception, where the public can meet and talk with the artists will be held on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 6 - 8 p.m.

hob’art gallery pays tribute to women today and in history. In America, the month of March is set aside as Women’s History Month, an observance that traces its beginnings to 1911. Celebrations focus on displays of respect, love towards women, and women’s achievements in economic, social and political spheres. This show reflects many aspects of appreciation for women.

With eighteen artists working in a variety of media, hob’art’s show offers bold and imaginative expressions of women’s lives, past and present. Mildred Kaye Kaye’s Emberá Madonna, is based on a photograph of a Native American mother wearing a hand-crafted chemise woven of strands of seed beads. Lissanne Lake’s The Dispossessed comments on the current politics of war, refugees, and immigrants. France Garrido’s Hybrid: Winged Gurnard uses materials like pen nibs, glass and beads, and draws inspiration from awareness of the earth, the feminine nature and the spirit.

Participating artists: Jenny Belin, Thea Berkhout, Alberte Bernier, Enid Braun, Liz Cohen, Maggie D’Aversa, Susan Davis, France Garrido, Claire Heimarck, Mildred Kaye, Lissanne Lake, Amanda Lopez, Vernita Nemec, Leslie Rubman, Anne Stillwaggon, Meredeth Turshen, Miriam Untoria, and Lily Zane.

Gallery information can be obtained on the website and via France Garrido 201-319-1504 or The artists of Hoboken thank the management of The Monroe Center for the Arts for their support and sponsorship.
