We would like to welcome our next featured artist, Janette Hopper with her exhibit Natural Milieu: An Altered Point View, Recent Works and New Genre Collaborations. The show depicts the artist’s deep love of the sea and forest using different mediums from oil paintings, multimedia prints, Projections, sound and installation. Natural Milieu will be up from May 15th through June 23rd. We will be having an Opening Reception May 26 and a closing Reception on June 23rd from both 6-9pm. There will also be a panel discussion titled Perspectives on Overpopulation on Wednesday June 14th from 4-6pm so please come down to Cape Fear to explore the connections we have with nature.

Janette K Hopper’s artwork in the “Natural Milieu” of the Wilma Daniels Gallery at Cape Fear Community College is unique and multifaceted.  This deeply layered and varied show expresses her love of the sea and forest.  Projections, oil paintings, multimedia prints, sounds, a collaborative panel discussion and 3-D installations both interactive and contemplative will fill the gallery with imagery and sound. The artist comments about the works: “Combining varied methods and media makes a deeply layered and unpredictable art which challenges both the artist and all of us to wrestle with, confront and try to solve difficult problems in our world by raising consciousness and inspiring change.  Joining forces with collaborators with the idea that we are stronger together rather than alone to address these urgent needs of nature; we invite you to join us and work locally.”
