On Saturday, October 27, 2012, hob'art artists are inviting everyone to get into a spooky mood at a Halloween Gala Party and Silent Auction. The witching hours are from 8-11pm. Create your craziest costume ever and come on out to the hob'art Gallery, Gallery E 208, The Monroe Center for the Arts, 720 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ. For a $3.00 donation at the door, hob'art will provide all creepy, crawly costumed and un-costumed guests with food, wine and live music by the world renowned Jim Pellegrino Jazz Trio (known to have played with Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, the Temptations, and Jimmy Heath). Party goers will also be able to bid in our first silent auction. The hob'art artists are donating 9X9 original artworks to be auctioned in a "Square Show" during this event. The auction proceeds will enable hob'art to continue having high quality art exhibitions, art classes, workshops, lectures, and discussion groups.
Just in time for the Halloween Party, hob'art gallery will sponsor a mask making class on October 25, starting at 6:30pm with Erik Attia to help each participant apply their creativity to the making of a Venetian-style mask. Using the age old techniques of the Italian ‘Mascherari,’ the mask makers, Attia will show you how he creates masks for the Cirque du Soleil and other famous clientele. A nominal fee of $30 includes a blank papier-mâché mask base, paints and assorted ribbons and feathers. All you need to bring is a paintbrush and your imagination! Please contact Jodi Zulueta at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-780-7952 to register for this class. Contact Liz Cohen at 201-424-1275 or email@example.com for further information about the Halloween Gala. Visit www.hob-art.org to learn more about this non-profit organization. The hob’art gallery thanks Hershy Weiss and Basad Realty for their continued support of hob'art Gallery.
Please help us continue to serve our cultural community by donating a work of art for this benefit.
100% of the sale of all artworks will go towards _gaia programming. _gaia has been creating programs for artists in the Jersey City community for 10 years. We are celebrating this milestone with our first ever Gala Fundraiser. Your support will allow us to continue to carry out our mission for the advancement, visibility, and development of emerging artists.
Our Gala will be held on Friday, October 19, 2012, at City Hall in Jersey City, NJ. There will be a reception at 6pm and a running silent auction until 10 pm. Free admission.
Winter Wonderland Weekend this December as part of the JC friday planned for December 7th.
submit: Last year id asked for only jersey city pictures, but this year i want people to just go wild!....photos, paintings, collage, sculpture and crafts all revolving around winter, the spirit of the holidays and the closing of the old year and the welcoming of the new one. Be creative and be enthusiastic; the feel of the event last year really warmed my heart after a year of ups and downs and i love being able to spend time with the folks in my community this way and invite you to my home to share some holiday cheer before the season gets so busy : )
I will have to submit all the info to Art House productions by October 25th in order to be listed in the pamphlet for the December 7th JC Friday events, so please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to participate. I won't need to have yourwork in-hand until Friday November 30th, so that is the official due date, but if you'd like your name potentially included in the JC Friday materials, i must know by October 25th.
I am hoping to make something special myself to include as part of the show!
As we did last year there will be a childrens toy drive bin for a local pre-school program on Ocean Avenue and a raffle to win prizes from local Greenville businesses as well as seasonal snacks to enjoy with each other! firstname.lastname@example.org GREENVILLE

Dear Fish, Just caught up on a Google Alert from 3/9 & saw that you mentioned us for Lucky7s that night. It was an absolute cracker of a night - I ended up on the bar & we had the place grinning from ear to ear. It was one of the best shows of our 1st US tours in terms of fun!
Thanks so much for mentioning us. Really appreciated. We're coming back to the US in September & it's always good to know that someone has seen the name before (they may not remember it, but it could be buried somewhere down in someone's psyche!).
Much appreciated. - Max The On Fires (Australia)
12/2/2010 It's making me nostalgic. I miss Lucky 7s!!
I'm hoping we'll be back in April for the 3rd time at that wonderful little bar. We're back in Australia now (& it's summer; yay!).
Just wanted you to know your blog gets read all over the world! Best, - Max
