4. What’s the comment heard most about your art?
Many people look at my finished prints and ask, “How did ever you do that?”

5. What is one thing people find surprising about how your art is created?
Viewers of my artwork are always surprised how the collaging of different images become so integrated.

6. What’s the one tool you couldn’t live without, in creating your art?

As my work is so technically involved, I cannot live without my cameras, computer, scanner, and printers.

7. How has your art changed over time?
I originally was a painter but then became addicted to printmaking, especially etching. Later I started to combine photography with my prints. The development of Photoshop drew me to concentrate on photography and image manipulation.

8. What’s your favorite part about making your pieces? Least favorite?
I love the possibilities available to me by combining different photographs to produce montages that ask to the viewer to blend their own imagination with the illusions I present. I enjoy everything about the technique I use to produce my prints.

9. What’s your dream project?
My dream project at the moment is to have an exhibit in Rochester.

New Studio

My art is available for purchase at my studio in the Anderson Arts Building, 250 N. Goodman Street, #402. The studio is open to the public on most First Fridays and by appointment.

HAPPY NEWS

I am ‘back in the game’ again.

Today I received this message: Great News! You have been selected as a Winner in the 1st 2016 ArtSlant Prize Showcase! 

I can also announce that I have completed my first Photographic Montage of 2016. “Encounter” is also part of the  “A Different View” portfolio.

My August Interview at hob’art gallery

When you have some free time, please watch Public Voice Salon. Episode No. 116. July 26, 2015. Hob’art .mov

John Briden interviewed Liz Cohen, Ibou Ndoye and me at my last public appearance at the hob’art gallery. Leaving Hoboken and my friends, fellow artists at the gallery, has left an empty space in my life. I miss them all so the interview was a bittersweet ending. I am still a part of the gallery and hope to send artwork to shows in 2016.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

Moved into My New Studio in Rochester, NY today!

It finally happened! I moved into a lovely studio space that I am sharing with Nancy Valle, a ceramic artist. 6 big windows with a view of the Memorial Art Gallery and near the Eastman Museum. All I have to do now, is unpack 50 boxes, put everything away, place art on the walls, and be ready for the annual Gala in honor of the Holiday Season and the monthly Art Walk on this Friday, December 4th and the Saturday Open Studios. Wish me luck.

hob’art cooperative Establishes Permanent Gallery at Monroe Center

IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED! 
(HOBOKEN, NJ – January 6, 2011) – hob’art cooperative gallery announced today that it has leased permanent gallery space at Monroe Center.  Working closely with Monroe Center’s owner, Hershy Weiss, hob’art’s new gallery will be located on the 2nd floor next to the Monroe Center Theater.
Liz Cohen, President of hob’art, founded the organization eleven years ago by approaching a number of Hoboken artists to establish a cooperative association. Ms. Cohen lives and works in Hoboken and has curated many exhibits for the association both in Hudson County and other venues.
“Hob’art was founded as a moving art exhibition until a permanent home was established and we are delighted that Monroe Center has worked with us to meet this long awaited goal,” said Ms. Cohen.  “With this space we can now reach out to the community to offer discussions, workshops, and forums which is another important aspect of our mission.”  
Today, hob’art cooperative gallery has 56 members from Hudson County and other parts of North Jersey.  The gallery’s first exhibition will open in February, with the public invited to a grand opening celebration of the only cooperative gallery in Hoboken. 
“Hob’art is an organization that is truly dedicated to promoting art in Hoboken not only among other artists, but also in the community at large,” said Mr. Weiss.  “This perfectly complements the vision of Monroe Center and we couldn’t be more excited to be the home of their permanent gallery.”
France Garrido, the new Director of the gallery, is a Weehawken resident and 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.
Formed in 2002, hob’art is a co-operative gallery run by its officers and members. Located in New Jersey, hob’art is the first co-operative gallery in Hoboken. Our objective is to exhibit contemporary art of the highest standard. As a collective gallery, we welcome and encourage a wide range of artwork and media: fiber, printmaking/ digital/ photography, sculpture/3D and painting/drawing/ mixed media.
