Hoboken Watercolors by Frank Hanavan
The Hoboken Museum is pleased to welcome artist Frank Hanavan back for a new Upper Gallery art exhibit. In a departure from his familiar oil paintings of Hoboken streetscapes, Hanavan has been working in watercolors lately, to a delightful effect.
Using a smaller format than his oils, the artist infuses light and air into scenes of the city's waterfront walkway and parks, train terminal, and street views. Meet the artist at an opening reception in the Museum's Upper Gallery on Sunday, Sept. 24, from 2 - 5 pm. The works will remain on view (and on sale -- act quickly, because Hanavan has a long and loyal following in the Mile Square City!) through Sunday, Nov. 5.
On Oct. 7th and 14th, Hanavan will share his talents in two art classes, from 2 - 4 pm, for anyone inspired by his artwork who wants to learn how to handle watercolor paints. Classes will cost $20 each, which includes materials. Sign-up buttons will be posted soon to the Museum's calendar page.
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 and Heritage Affairs.
