From Friday, October 15th through Saturday, January 15th, the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington, Long Island will host an exhibition of paintings by HULBERT WALDROUP. His current exhibit is ARTIST WITH AN ATTITUDE. Hulbert’s work uses imagines and painting styles to provoke thoughts, feelings and emotions that cause the viewer to stop in shock and ask “what is the artist trying to say?”.

Hulbert Waldroup, who started painting over 10 years ago without formal education, is no stranger to controversy. This self taught artist’s works have drawn ire, protest, praise and discussion about art and freedom of expression. From “The Devil’s Palace”, an oil on canvas work that caused a ruckus at an art show in the Thompson Center in Chicago to his 1999 mural about the shooting/murder of immigrant Amadou Diallo in NYC, Waldroup’s art is thought provoking. Of his work, he said “I’ve had my art vandalized or stolen, but I think that’s a badge of honor if I can move somebody to that point. If it doesn’t make you stop and look, then I’ve failed as an artist and that’s what so many artists out here today do. I mean it matches your living room set and it doesn’t say anything.”

Waldroup creates portrait paintings and pop-art work on the streets of SoHo and in Greenwich Village. Celebrity collectors Whoopi Goldberg and Quentin Tarantino have purchased his work. His website is His current exhibit features works that highlight the Harlem jazz era and activist art works. IMAC is thrilled to welcome this rebel artist to our gallery. This is a not-to-be-missed exhibition rarely seen on Long Island! We challenge the public to view this outstanding artist and his works which will leave you stimulated, amused and provoked.

Admission to this exhibition is free of charge. Gallery hours are from Tuesday to Friday, noon to 6PM, and from 2 to 6PM on Saturday show days. IMAC is closed on Sunday and Monday.
