July 1, 2010 - "Last Wild Places" at the Warwick Center Wilmington, NC (April 8-29, 2010):
Special guest artist Janette K Hopper has a natural affinity for the skies, waters and landscape of the American place. This exhibit features her artworks in a variety of media that show the close observations of these wild places that still exist both in the Southeastern and the Northwestern US. Her sensitivity and ability to use oil paints, watercolor, sumi ink, drawing materials and prints with the landscape as her point of departure allow her to make a profound and competent artistic statement. Because she is a colorist and shows movement and is able to adapt compositional devices to her means, her works express reflection, strength and action. Her exhibit shows the culture and aesthetic value of the land and encourages all of us to work to preserve those special places that are still left for our children and their children.

It features an eclectic collection of work by over 180 artists from the U.S. and around the world including the work of Janette K. Hopper. The exhibition curator Josh MacPhee describes the exhibit as “a very different kind of show... This is printmaking at its roots, historically a peoples’ art that is embraced by and accessible to nearly everyone. This is art made to be brought into people’s lives, to be hung in windows and classrooms, to be pasted on the street and used as placards in protests. This is art that speaks to the anger, frustration, love and hope in all of us.” “Paper Politics” can be seen at the WCI Arts Center Gallery March 6 through April 3.
