About the Exhibit
Hopper’s paintings, featured in this exhibit, strives to capture the senses of “Water & Sky”.  The feel of a breeze and the unique smells are communicated through the captivating  brushwork, the fluidity of the paint, use of striking color, nuanced luminosity and intriguing compositions. Hopper states:  These sky and water paintings are inspired directly by my experiences observing nature while on trips and around home. They capture my intimate feelings of a place, often using dramatic skies and reflective waters, taking one on a journey through space and time to where one was once and longs to be again. The Romantic tradition of panoramic painting that expresses the artist’s inner emotions and the sublime, can be seen and felt strongly throughout this show.

Artist, Janette K Hopper, received her MFA from the University of Oregon and has taught in Denmark, Germany and the United States.  She has the honor of receiving prestigious Fulbright grants from both the United States and Denmark to continue her work abroad with numerous solo shows in both Europe and the US.  In 2017 she was named a “Woman to Watch” in the arts by WILMA Magazine and is the 2018 Azalea Festival Art Show Juror and Judge.

PinPoint is located at 114 Market Street in Wilmington, NC.
