Join us for the opening night of Coastal Abstracts – Friday, April 19 from 6-9 PM. The solo exhibit features the work of Durham’s newest reuse artist, Jules Hoffman. Her work, produced on shutters, cabinet doors, plexiglass, windows, and extruded polystyrene, reflects the colors of land and sea, incorporating found materials from the North Carolina coast.
Jules describes herself as an accidental artist, and began painting while in graduate school. A certified operating room nurse, Jules works full time as a manager for an ambulatory surgical center in Chapel Hill. She also serves as the surgical clinical nurse lead for the North Carolina State Medical Assistance Team, deploying during natural disasters.
Jules was blessed with her late mother’s scientific acumen and her father’s creativity. The only girl in the family, Jules grew up watching sports, and is an avid Steelers fan. When time permits, she indulges in her long standing affair with deep sea fishing. Her passion for the coast is reflected in her work.
An opening reception will be held on Friday April 19th, from 6-9 PM. Festivities include light snacks, drinks and free activities in the Make and Take room. The event is free and the public is warmly welcomed. Scrap Thrift will remain open until 9:00 pm for shoppers. The show runs April 19th – May 11th.
