Decorah artist Susan Hove is exhibiting a collection of paintings in the Decorah Public Library Mezzanine Gallery throughout April. The public is invited to attend a reception for Hove Monday April 7, 7-8 pm, in the 2nd floor Mezzanine Gallery.
Hove’s display features oil paintings that she has produced over the past 10 years. According to the artist, several of the featured pieces were inspired by the creations of Vincent Van Gogh and Thomas Kincaid, two of her favorite artists, while others reveal her love of color. Another grouping of paintings, referred to by Hove as “My Ladies,” depict women with vibrant clothing, big hats, and lots of attitude.
Hove enjoyed art classes as a youth but did not begin pursuing painting until she took an art class through Spectrum about 10 years ago. She credits JoAnne MacTaggart and Ana Olson, her mentors at Spectrum, with inspiring her to follow her passion for painting and to share that passion with others. Hove says that she appreciates the creativity and relaxation that painting brings to her life, thanks to MacTaggart and Olson, and she looks forward to future painting projects and opportunities to display her work.
The Decorah Public Library Mezzanine Gallery is open to the public Monday-Thursday 10 am-8 pm, Friday and Saturday 10 am-5 pm, and Sunday 1-4 pm. Call 563-382-3717 for more information.
