Opening Reception, Hope Martin

Join us for the opening reception and artist demonstration during First Fridays in the North Village Arts District!

Hope Martin’s pastel drawings focus on the details — a zoomed in realism to slow the viewer down, to reflect:

“I find inspiration in the small and everyday things: my reflection in a frog’s eye, the patterns on a snail’s shell. They are full of details! They are also far from ordinary if you take the time to really notice them.
I aim, with my art, to give people a reason to slow down. I want them to notice the beauty of the little things that they miss. There is a sense of wonder to be found in those little things.”
