    barskygallery-rythms-hoboken-art-gallery

    Hoboken’s contemporary art gallery, Barsky Gallery at 49 Harrison Street in Hoboken, is holding its opening reception for their new show Rythms on Saturday, November 3rd — an exciting duo-art exhibition that will feature new work by artists Jorge Caligiuri and Karlee Mariel, both exemplifying their medium’s technical and expressive potential. Inspired by dynamic rhythms and patterns of motion observable within our environment, artists Mariel and Caligiuri explore the space that exists between the Natural world and our presence within it. Organic and geometric forms stir the senses and carry the viewer through visual depths. Textures and tactile surfaces draw the eye from tension to the harmony which expands and contracts within the dynamic artworks. This compelling pairing of artists inspires a unique combination of forces seen and unseen that exist within our environment, the natural world, and ultimately, ourselves. Find out more here.
