Contemporary Art of Joan Hughes Featured at Hopkins Center for the Arts
“We have work in pastel and work in ink and some mixed media works. And all of her drawings are related to her strong and passionate feelings about our earth,” said Jim Clark, visual arts manager at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
Joan Hughes said in her artist statement:
Being fairly new to the world of art making I’ve worked on exploring a variety of mediums and techniques to express what I feel deeply and passionately about; our beautiful, life giving, and fragile home we call earth. Only we as humans have the ability to correct the devastating changes we have caused. My passion and goal is to express the beauty of nature and the human responsibility to preserve our home through my art. Finally, truth be told, I just thoroughly enjoy the journey art making takes me on!”
The gallery is free and open to the public. Hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
The Hopkins Center for the Arts is located at 1111 Mainstreet, Hopkins, MN 55343.
