HOBOKEN, N.J., June 24, 2022 – Mission 50, New Jersey’s premier coworking space, continues its monthly series of art shows with an event entitled, “Shaping Light by Local Artist Ricardo Roig.” Free and open to the public, the solo art exhibition, reception, and drawing to win a Roig print will be held on Thursday, June 30, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Mission 50, 50 Harrison Street in Hoboken.
All event attendees can enter a drawing to win one of Roig’s works, Hoboken Night (Mini), courtesy of Mission 50.

The drawing will occur at 6:30 p.m. on the night of the art show, and the winner must be present to win.
The Roig exhibition will be on Mission 50’s second floor, in the Saloon and adjoining spaces. Wine, beer, and light refreshments will be served. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase Roig’s artwork and also enter a raffle to win one free week of open coworking at Mission 50. Free on-site parking is available during the event.
Roig Focuses on Hand-Cut Prints
Ricardo Roig’s signature style of art is his innovative hand-cut print. These modern painterly original works on paper naturally balance space, shapes, and colors, and offer the world a new form of art. Every color stencil layer is patiently hand-cut from paper with an X-ACTO blade and then attached to a screen to be hand pulled through with desired vivid colors.
Roig is a contemporary fine artist who was born in New York City in 1983 and currently works in Hoboken, N.J. Roig and his wife, Michelle, own and direct two art galleries for his work, Roig Collection Westfield, N.J., and Roig Collection Art Gallery at the W Hotel in Hoboken, N.J.
“The monthly Mission 50 art shows are an extension of our creative coworking environment within the building,” said Gregory Dell’Aquila, CEO of JDA Group LLC, which owns the coworking and boutique office property. “Ricardo Roig is a local Hoboken artist with a significant following. By bringing this show to Mission 50, and giving the opportunity to win one of his prints, we’re providing another experience for our coworking community. Mission 50 has several building-wide events per week, which adds to the vibrant atmosphere enjoyed by our members.”
Mission 50: A Dynamic Coworking and Community Space
Mission 50 was launched by Dell’Aquila in 2011 as one of the first premium coworking sites in the New York/New Jersey region. Responding to evolving workplace needs, he spearheaded a year-long renovation and expansion project at the 80,000-square-foot boutique office building. The renovations, completed in 2011, created a reimagined coworking community designed to foster collaboration, creativity and productivity.
The building has multiple workspace environments including shared coworking spaces, privacy pods, private office suites, and fully customizable office concepts. It has upscale amenities throughout, including state-of-the-art technology, plus a menu of membership options that cater to professionals of all stripes, ranging from solo workers and growing startups to seasoned businesses and traditional enterprises.
