During this month's Gallery Walk, Tresorie Framing will be unveiling new artwork from well known Hoboken based artist Ricardo Roig! In addition to unveiling new artwork, his latest installment in the “Mile Square Series,” immortalizes the interior of the Hoboken establishment, Maxwell’s, which will be closing at the end of July. Roig's "Maxwell's" print is a limited edition hand-cut screen print with only 20 made. There are only a few left and the first five people to purchase the print at Tresorie during the July Gallery Walk will receive a discount.
About his process Roig says, "My images come from life, dreams, visions, hallucinations, nightmares, but are always experienced through a specific atmospheric space. I attempt to evoke these experiences in my artwork, a representation of my world- through my eyes, mind and heart. My art is my elevated form of communication and allows me to express and understand my emotions in hopes of finding peace. I hope my art uplifts, sometimes challenges people to think, but always reminds us of our shared humanity in this natural world for which we are all born into."
Watch the video below on Ricardo's unique printmaking technique!

You’ve probably seen Adam Rodriguez’ art, without knowing it. As a professional artist with the New York-based graphic design firm Success Apparel, he’s created designs for some of the most recognizable brands in the world, including John Deere Apparel, Dickies and Yo Gabba Gabba.
In his own freelance business, Adam is also the artist behind the iconic t-shirt designs sported by the Hoboken Motorcycle Club, whose members also sell them at city festivals. The t-shirts commemorate the group’s legendary parties. If you’ve been privileged to attend an HMC party at the clubhouse, located just south of Hoboken, he painted three of the interior walls with bright orange flames in a muscular style (also seen on the cover of hMAG last year in a feature on the HMC).
“I hope to finish the fourth wall someday,” Adam says, “but it’s behind the bar, which is pretty well-stocked. It would take a lot of work to clear that area for painting.”
A selection of his HMC t-shirt designs will be on display July 14 – August 18 in the Upper Gallery at the Hoboken Historical Museum, around the centerpiece of the exhibit: “Clubhouse Requiem,” a large group portrait depicting about 40 HMC members—past and present.
Right Angle hosts "West of the Hudson" by NJ artist Joseph D. Terrone opening tonight 7/11 and continuing through the July 21 Gallery Walk
Right Angle Gallery is proud to present the works of Plein Air artist Joseph D. Terrone at their uptown location.
Joseph D. Terrone, local Glen Rock artist, will be exhibiting his landscape paintings of scenes “West
of the Hudson” at the Right Angle Gallery Uptown, beginning on July 11th and continuing to August 19th. “West of
the Hudson” is a tribute to the River and the towns that grew near by. They speak of the beauty of New Jersey and
the Hudson River in particular. There will be an opening reception on the 11th from 6-8 pm. Mr. Terrone will be on
hand to discuss plein air painting and specifically his West of the Hudson paintings. The address of Right Angle
Gallery Uptown is 1108 Washington Ave, Hoboken, NJ 07030.
Joseph D.Terrone is a professional New Jersey based artist. He holds a BFA from Brooklyn College and an MFA
from Pratt Institute. HIs plein air paintings have been shown at various venues and have been collected throughout
In the past Mr. Terrone has been included in shows at the Brooklyn Museum and BACA Cultural Center in Brooklyn,
NY. He has been a member of the Plein Air Painters of New Jersey, The Society of Plein Air Painters, The Blackwell
Street Artists, The Plein Air Painters of New Jersey Highlands, The Lower Hudson Valley Plein Air Painters and The
International Professional Association of the Arts. His work can be viewed at www.joeterrone.com.
Joseph’s painting “Last Snow” was selected among 7,000 entries, as a finalist in The Artist’s Magazine’s, 28th annual
competition. He was also twice selected by Peter Trippi, editor of Fine Art Connoissuer Magazine to participate in
“Paint the Town” a premier plein air event. He has also painted along side many top plein air artists from around the
country at other plein air events.
After completing graduate school, Mr.Terrone worked abstractly in mixed media on paper. The success he was
enjoying was met head on by a strong desire to revisit realism. He began to paint outdoors. The experience was a
spiritual awakening and he decided to move his energies into landscape painting. This combination of realism and
abstraction was transformed into a unique energy evident in his work today.
Originating from this abstract background coupled with his response to plein air painting, his paintings act as a
vehicle to express his love of nature through color and movement. His work has been influenced by Emile Gruppe
and other artists of the Cape Ann and Bucks County area.
