March 14, 2018, Jersey City, NJ – The
community is invited to view local artist Antonio Nogueira’s grand
scale, single-stroke murals of bold, swirling lines in a special
exhibition at Hudson County Community College (HCCC) entitled,
“Teacher as Artist.” The works may be viewed from Thursday, March
15 through Monday, April 30.
exhibition, which was curated by HCCC Department of Cultural Affairs
Director Michelle Vitale, is being held in the HCCC Libraries on both
Campuses: Journal Square – 71 Sip Avenue in Jersey City; and North
Hudson – 4800 Kennedy Boulevard in Union City. There is no charge
Nogueira’s works blend vibrant colors and human forms, and his
abstract creations often contrast sharp geometric shapes with
dramatic movements. A husband, father, professional pushrim
wheelchair racer, and Jersey City art teacher, the
Portuguese-American artist works with large canvases because he
enjoys the physical challenge of painting in a grand scale. Mr.
Nogueira’s movement around a canvas with single strokes results in
long, contour lines and curves that are consistent elements in his
paintings. (Examples of his work may be viewed online at
