Artist Debbie Hook coming to the Markay
Hook, of Wilmington, has spent much of the last quarter century immersed
in the arts. Her love of nature and all the creatures of Gods
world are evident in her gentle drawings and paintings.
Realistic representation is the rudder that steers by driving
passion, says Debbie. Her favorite medium is colored pencil.
It allows her to create subtle color and light movement with her subject
matter. The clarity of her work draws the viewer into each piece.
Debbie will also exhibit work in graphite, pastel, and oil during
her one-woman exhibit at the Markay Cultural Arts Center, 269 East
Main Street, Jackson.
Hook is an adjunct drawing instructor at Southern State Community
College, North Campus, gives private art lessons in all mediums, and
teaches at the Wilmington Christian Academy. Her work has been juried
into International Colored Pencil S ociety of America exhibitions.
Judges throughout the region frequently select her for high honors.
Her work is in private collections in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky,
Indiana, Missouri, and Alaska.
Everyone is cordially invited to welcome Debbie to the Markay at a
Reception in her honor beginning at 7 p.m., Friday, September 26.
There is no admission charge. The space is handicapped accessible.
Light Refreshments will be served.
