The Doña Ana Arts Council (DAAC) Arts & Cultural Center’s gallery opening reception for visual artist Annetta Hoover will be held Thursday, December 14, from 5 – 6:30 p.m. Attendees can meet the artist and discuss her work while enjoying refreshments. The gallery is located at the new DAAC Arts & Cultural Center at 1740 Avenida de Mercado, suite D, in the Bulletin Plaza.
Hoover has had a diverse and comprehensive career of over 25 years, including studies at Brecia College of Kentucky and at the University of Tennessee. She completed additional studies in Munich, Germany, and has traveled extensively through the U.S., England, and Europe.
She has received awards and honors in national and regional juried shows: the League of American Pen Women Show, The Black Range Artists Show, the Mesilla Valley Third International, The Border Artists Museo de Arts Invitational in Juarez, Mexico, the Memorial Annual Exhibition, the Sierra Medical Center’s juried annual show, and the Platt Art Guild National in Nebraska.
Hoover describes her work as “a process of identifying the colors, shapes, and light found in the Southwest. By making a statement rather than telling a story, I want the viewer to become involved so they themselves might use their own imagination to finish the details that speak to them.”
Each month, DAAC highlights an artist by exhibiting work at the Arts & Cultural Center’s gallery. DAAC is accepting proposals by artists wishing to exhibit their work. Artists living and working in New Mexico are eligible to submit to show in this gallery. More information is available at www.daarts.org.
This beautiful space is also available for rent for special events, including receptions, meetings, musical performances, and art classes. For more information, visit www.daarts.org, or contact DAAC at (575) 523-6403 by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
or in person at the DAAC offices and Arts & Cultural Center, 1740 Calle de Mercado, Suite B-D.
