Due to the library closing, this show, originally scheduled for April 1 – 30, will be rescheduled to a later date.
The William Pinney Gallery of the newly renovated Kent Memorial Library in Suffield will present a show featuring the work of a fine watercolor artist, William Hudghton Hoey of Enfield.
Hoey, a well-known member of the artistic community, has garnered much recognition in shows throughout the area, studied with several prominent artists, and recently had his work featured as the cover art for the Reminder Yellow Pages.
“Willie”, as he is better known, studied Technical Illustration at the Glasgow School of Art, in Scotland, his birthplace. Proud of his Scottish heritage, he retains a very distinct accent, and has been known to appear at functions in his kilt! Prior to emigrating to the U.S., he was employed as a technical illustrator for an engineering firm.
A past Vice President of the Tobacco Valley Artists Association, Willie is also a member of Connecticut River Valley Artists. He has taught at the Windsor Locks Senior Center, and offers private lessons in his home studio.
The exhibit will feature a collection of watercolors, including many examples on a new “plastic paper” called Yupo. Don’t miss this great show by a very talented and charismatic local artist. Check out the “new” library and the “new” gallery.
Made possible with the cooperation of the artist, the Suffield Arts Council, and theKent Memorial Library Staff.
