Figure drawing involves simple materials - pencil / charcoal - as means of discovery. Ideas evolve through the process of the “drawn” language with specific exercises that focus on visual analysis and the skills needed for expressive form such as line, tone, mass and illusionistic space. 

As in any practice, the more you draw the more comfortable you will become with the materials and processes.

Provided Items: Paper, pencil / charcoal
Recommended: Sketchbook

Closing Reception & Artists Talk

Field Colony is proud to present our third art exhibition, a group show, featuring Matthew Paul Cleary, Juan Restrepo, Maximilian Pelzmann, and Rudolph Serra of the highly influential and prominent Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ. 

These artworks vary in medium and size; paintings on canvas by Juan Restrepo, paintings of vellum by Matthew Paul Cleary, sculptures in fired terra cotta by Rudolph Serra, and plaster sculptures by Maximilian Pelzmann.

Most of these works are being exhibited for the first time, and we are excited to share this experience with you. We offer art consulting and handling, and financing available through Art Money.

Field Colony is also producing our second limited edition art book, with photos taken by Studio B9 Photography, to celebrate and commemorate these artists and their art. Each book is signed by each artist and comes complimentary with your art purchase.

Coworking in an Art Gallery

Daily, M - F, 8am - 7pm

 

At the corner of 10th and Bloomfield, Field Colony is located in the heart of Hoboken, NJ, across from Anthony David's and around the corner from Bwè, and serves as the intersection for artists and entrepreneurs, where companies and people grow together in a supportive environment for creativity, focus, and connection.

Draped in black and set among blocks of historic brownstones and tree-lined streets, Field Colony provides a supportive and engaging environment for working, learning, and collaborating.

You will benefit from the all the natural light through the nine foot windows and french doors along Bloomfield. With eleven foot ceilings throughout, Field Colony is divided into three distinct rooms; the open gallery, the private gallery, and studio for our artist in residence.

The warm, minimalist interior of the open gallery is appointed with four, 48 inch x 96 inch, glass topped tables on matte black frames, elegant ergonomic seating, tasteful smart lighting, and natural white oak floors. The space exudes elegance and sophistication.

The private gallery has views onto the open gallery and provides privacy for conferences. Painted matte black, the room provides for web and video communications and can seat up to six people for meetings and presentations.  

 


In Case You Missed It

Inaugural Waterfront Arts Gala

Monday, June 25th, 7 - 9pm

Hoboken, NJ

Field Colony was honored to be invited to be one of the seven galleries in Hoboken for their inaugural Waterfront Arts Gala. We were joined by Alex Morales Gallery, Barsky Gallery, Hob'art Gallery, Issyra Gallery, Proto Gallery, and Roig Collection.

Additionally, our collaborator, Anthony David's, was one of the seven restaurants in Hoboken invited to be part of the Gala. The others included Del Frisco's, Greek from Greece, Halifax, Karma Kafe, Leo's Grandevous, and Zafra.

 

Mayor Ravi Bhalla's Announcement

In a surprise announcement at the Waterfront Arts Gala, Mayor Ravi Bhalla signed an executive order to help fund public art installations throughout the city. 

The order declares that all city bond ordinances shall be drafted to include a provision dedicating one percent towards public art installations. This is meant to revitalize neighborhoods, promote economic prosperity, and improve the physical and psychological well-being of residents. 

“Art is a fundamental part of improving quality of life, but it’s too often an afterthought,” said Bhalla. “My Administration is committed to not only keep public arts projects funded, but on the forefront of my agenda as Mayor. I’m also proud to say Hoboken is one of the first municipalities in our state to adopt a ‘percent for art’ policy, and I encourage other municipalities to also invest in the arts.”

The first implementation of the order will be an interactive sculpture at Southwest Park, which will be financed by the next bond ordinance
