Opening Reception: Habit, Sculpture and Wall Pieces by Ani Hoover.
The opening reception on Friday evening, April 7 from 6-8 p.m. is free, open to the public, serving appetizers and beverages with jazz music provided by LTM Trio.
For most of Ani Hoover’s artistic career she consciously tried to keep a studio practice that was separate from her life outside of the studio. You couldn’t tell a lot about her interests and passions (outside of art making) by looking at her work. But in recent years a few of her personal interests and passions are starting to make appearances in her studio. For the exhibit Habit, Hoover focus her art making on two of her longtime passions, recycling and craft making. The works in this exhibit feature the craft techniques of weaving, crochet or sewing and many of them also feature materials gleaned from the waste stream.
The exhibit runs April 7- May 18, 2017
