there was a nice write up in the latest issue of Palisades magazine about artists and art groups in Hudson & Bergen Counties. however i was disappointed that there was not any mention of the Hob'art co-operative gallery, of which i'm a member. i've since learned that it was an accidental omission so hopefully we'll see some mention another time. hob'art has a lot of exciting shows & events planned for this year so check their website often for updates.
that being said, i thought i'd highlight one artist in the group whose work i love. Meredeth Turshen is an artist, teacher and writer living in Hoboken, NJ, and teaching at Rutgers University. She exhibits regularly with Viridian Artists and Ceres galleries in New York City and with hob'art. Her artwork explores line and color non-figuratively in abstract compositions, and draws inspiration from nature, landscape and still life, as well as the human figure. You can view her artwork, writing, and current events on her website.
