100 Artists to Show Work; Live Music, Too!
By Sally Deering
Fall brings lush color to these blustery days and one way to enjoy fall’s colorful beauty is to visit the upcoming Hoboken Art & Studio Tour, where artists will open their studios for an up-close view of their work and process.
On Sat & Sun, Nov. 3 & 4, from 12 noon to 6 pm, Hoboken springs to life when visitors from the Tri-State area descend on the mile-square city to check out the more than 100 artists displaying their work. Studios and public spaces will be the venues for painters who work in oils, acrylics and watercolors, sculptors, photographers, and collage-and-mixed-media artists. Music and spoken-word performances will also be going on throughout the day.

“I will be showing figurative portraits of women,” Smith says.
Roxanne Hoffman will exhibit her photography like the piece Hoboken Neon which features neon signs in local bars and restaurants. Artists Donna O’Grady and Don Sichler will be in the group show at hob’art co-operative gallery at the Monroe Center. Alex Morales will be exhibiting paintings including the work, “Madison Bar,” at the Alex Morales Atelier and Art Gallery.

The Red Goddess by Elizabeth Ndoye
The tour is designed for visitors to easily walk from studio-to-studio and gallery-to-gallery. Since the city’s a mile-square, it should be easy to visit almost every site. As diverse as the art, the artists who participate in the Hoboken Art & Studio Tour come from all over the Tri-State area – and beyond — to be in the event. Visitors can look forward to meeting the artists and seeing their creative process up-close and in real-time.
Poets, musicians and performance artists will also be presenting their art to make the 2018 Hoboken Art & Studio Tour a memorable one.
