Olga Guerra: “Leaving Cuba”, scanography


Alberte Bernier: “Exodus”, oil on canvas

“Abstracting Nature”, an exhibition by Alberte Bernier and Olga Guerra will open to the public from August 8, 2014 – September 7, 2014 at hob’art co-operative gallery, 720 Monroe Street, E208, Hoboken, NJ.

“Abstracting Nature” puts in perspective a selection of artwork in which each artist illustrates her expressionist interpretation of nature. Although different in scope, their work evokes similar sensitivity and emotion. Alberte Bernier will present artwork created from oil on canvas and mixed media. Olga Guerra will present mixed media pieces of work through photography and scanography, the art of taking pictures with a scanner. To Alberte Bernier, a Chashama artist, painting represents a desire to convey emotion and fantasy. Olga Guerra puts emphasis on light, movement, depth of field, colors and layers. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday August 9, 6:00-8:00pm. On Sunday August 17 at 3:30pm, the artists will talk about their artwork and welcome questions from visitors. Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, 1:00-5:00pm, and by appointment. The artists thank the Monroe Center and hob’art co-operative gallery for their support in this exhibition.

Alberte Bernier works in several mediums, and she incorporates found objects gathered from various landscapes into her work.  For Olga Guerra, who works mostly with found objects, the scanner is an endless source of challenges and delights that allow her to reconcile two and three-dimensional designs.

Free parking is available at the rear of the building on Jackson Street and is wheelchair accessible.  Gallery information may be obtained on the website and from the director, France Garrido, (201) 319-1504 or
