One Year After: Hamlet Manzueta
Saturday, March 7th, 6PM – 9PM
Art House Productions, Jersey City

Art House Gallery is honored to present the work of the late Hamlet Manzueta from March 7-28 in Jersey City. One year after his death, Hamlet still lives on in the hearts of the Jersey City art community and on the walls of many of its residents.
Curated by Andrea McKenna, “One Year After” is a celebration of Hamlet’s prolific career, exhibiting paintings from throughout his lifetime in the community he called home. The opening reception is Saturday, March 7 from 6pm-9pm.

Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, Hamlet Manzueta came to New York City in 1982, graduated from FIT and did just about everything from Jewelry design, to Illustration to making hats. It was in the 90’s that Hamlet entered the drag scene and became a downtown sensation with his colorful, spicy characters. He also produced a cable program called “The Pot” and held a permanent position creating designs for Fila. Becoming a prolific painter, Hamlet explored many sides to his artistic palette, especially after becoming ill and vanishing from the downtown scene. While some say his work was childlike, it’s certainly clear there’s an angelic innocence in which it’s been said he emulated.

The Opening Reception is on Saturday, March 7th from 6pm to 9pm. Show runs until March 28th. Gallery Hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm to 3pm. All gallery shows are free and open to the public. If you cannot attend during gallery hours, appointments are available. Please contact for information. Curated by Andrea McKenna.
