The wide spectrum of participants include teachers, artists, students, musicians, librarians, doctors, scientists, gardeners, advocates and one furry cheer enthusiast.
Teri Hoover is sustained and strengthened by insights gathered from being outdoors. A daily walk on the Huckleberry Trail and work in the garden allows for the illumination found in nature. This in turn creates a backdrop that frames and inspires her interest in matters of the heart. As a portrait photographer for 30 years, she sees best with a bit of fresh air. Her photographic portraits allow the sweet range of human emotions unfold and has been one of her greatest joys. A recent return to the drawing and painting of childhood has reinvigorated the richness of her photographic work. A paintbrush in hand allows a new perspective, and a way to revisit life’s wonders. Sharing these insights allows connection and balance and a reminder to see with love.
The exhibit will be on display from August 1 to September 10. A “Meet the Artist” reception will take place on Thursday, August 9, from 5 to 7 PM.
