Hoboken master painter’s ‘COVID’ exhibition continues until July 3
HOBOKEN, NJ — There’s just over a week left to catch the “COVID” exhibit — work done in quarantine by Hoboken master painter and resident Lou Carbone — in the upper gallery of the Hoboken Historical Museum. The exhibition lasts until July 3.
The exhibition, which opened on May 7, consists of 25 16 x 20 acrylic paintings.
“With various influences that include Cubism, Surrealism, and Mexican muralists, Lou’s paintings are a series of pictorial spaces born out of personal experience filtered through dreams and illusions,” the museum wrote.
“The images of anonymous figures in common frames depict ritualistic events combined with feelings of sexual tension that are woven with elegant, silent movement.”
The exhibit is supported by a block grant from the State/County Partnership Program for the Arts, administered by the Hudson County Division of Cultural Affairs and Heritage.
The Upper Gallery’s next exhibition, photography by Carol Halebian, opens July 10 with an online artist talk Friday, July 8 at 7 p.m.
