Hoff’s work consists of black and white drawings depicting daily life in America during the 40’s and 50’s. “In capturing the essence of life on the ‘homefront,’ I depict popular architectural and social icons of the era to create scenes of places where Americans gathered to pursue the art of having fun,” said Hoff about the drawings. Hoff will be present for an artist’s talk and able to take questions during the opening reception.
