Hoffman named best of show at Stover Mill Gallery
Watercolor artist Richard H. Hoffman’s interpretation of the Stover-Myers Mill caught the eye of Janet Marsh Hunt, director for more than 30 years of the Coryell Gallery, and juror of the Stover Mill Gallery’s second annual juried exhibition.
Hunt selected Hoffman’s watercolor, “Stover-Myers Mill” for the Best of Show Award in the exhibition, sponsored by the Tinicum Civic Association. Hoffman credits his 40 years as a design architect with influencing his awareness of shape, form and colors.
Visitors to the Stover Mill Gallery on Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27 are invited to cast their votes for their favorite work of art in the exhibition. The votes will be tallied, and the Visitors’ Choice Award will be announced Nov. 2. The show runs through Nov. 3.
