Jill Hoy: Art Presentation

Jill Hoy with display Event Type: Library-sponsored Adult Event
Date: 10/26/2017
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Description:
 Jill Hoy will give a talk about her new exhibit, “Found in Maine: The Poetry of Visual Dialog," up in the Blue Hill Public Library’s Howard Room glass cases through November 11th. The artist has arranged a series of tableaus in the cases, with works of art from her own collection. She says that they reflect different historical periods, including early American, and mid-century; also nautical themes, various continents, as well as various artists from her youth when she summered on Deer Isle. There are also pieces by “my elders, Lund and Schrag; as well as contemporaries: Imber, Beckmann, Meade, Codella, Moffet, Muir, Pattison, Updike, Kane-Lewis, Haskell, and Hoy.”

About the exhibit Jill says, “I have put together selections from my collections of art and artifacts collected in Maine. I am a painter. I value history, art forms, the handmade utilitarian, extrapolations on themes. Additionally I create eclectic still lifes for my own enjoyment. My parents, in their twenties and thirties with three young children and little money, loved to go antiquing, to yard sales and to Maine country auctions. I have spent my life relishing these activities. It is a pleasure to share the poetic free association of these art pieces with a broader audience.”

The exhibit will be available for viewing during library hours subject to the meeting room schedule through the November 11th. There will be a presentation on the exhibit with Jill Hoy on October 26, 7:00PM. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
