ACCUMULATE: WORKS BY ANI HOOVER, OPENING RECEPTION, SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 3-6PM
Linda Matney Fine Art Gallery, 5435 Richmond Rd, Williamsburg VA
Ani Hoover is a professional artist working in the field for over 20 years. She began her art career as a painter and received both a BFA and MFA for painting. Around 2010 her work began to shift to focus on sculpture, installation and fiber-based practices. Her process embraces recycled materials and low-tech methods for creating art. She favors materials and processes that link her the DIY movement and craft making culture. Hoover’s work is in the collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Burchfield Penney Art Center, the University of Buffalo’s Anderson Gallery, and in many public and private collections around the country.
The Linda Matney Gallery is dedicated to curating and developing innovative exhibitions and collections showcasing painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, video and performance for audiences and private patrons in Virginia and elsewhere.
“The primary concern of The Linda Matney Gallery is to exhibit the work and ideas of the most significant artists of our time." John Lee Matney and Paul Thomas, 2010.
