HABITApril 7 - May 18, 2017
Sculpture & Wall Pieces by Ani Hoover
Opening Reception: Friday, April 7, from 6-8pm
As a child, Hoover spent hours poking around in her grandmother’s crochet magazines followed by intense searches of the house for materials to use for her newest “project.” For the exhibit Habit, Hoover revisits her childhood pastimes of craft making and using found materials to create work that speaks to both her personal history and a contemporary art making practice. The resulting works include large scale crochet, quilts made from recycled plastics, weavings of plastic shopping bags and a flock of delicate tulle fabric “yo-yo’s.”
Buffalo, New York based artist Ani Hoover's work has been exhibited widely in the Western New York region including at the Albright Knox Art Gallery, Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center and Buffalo Arts Studio. Visit www.anihoover.com for more information on her work.
