Meet the Artist Reception: Teri Hoover

August 9 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

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. Teri's exhibit "With These Hands" 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.
